Hoodothripiella ignacio Retana-Salazar, 2007: 24 syn. n.

This is the only species in the genus Elixothrips ( Fig. 17 View FIGURES 2–17 ). It is widespread on islands from the Indian and Pacific Oceans ( Mound & Marullo 1996), and in the Americas it is recorded from Brazil, Guadeloupe ( Mound & Marullo 1996), Martinique ( Rey 2002) and Cuba ( González & Castillo 2009). In Southern Brazil, it was observed causing silvering of banana fruits in the State of Santa Catarina ( Lima & Milanez 2013) ( Fig. 132 View FIGURES 121–138 ), but specimens have been collected in Cuiabá, State of Mato Grosso on leaves of Malpighia glabra (11.iii.2016); in the State of Ceará on leaves of ruderal herbs in impacted mangrove plantings in Fortaleza (24.iv.2016) and on banana crops in Aratuba (12.vi.2018); and in Manaus, State of Amazonas, on leaves of Piper sp. (1.viii.2019); in Areia, State of Paraíba on guava leaves (2.xi.2019); and in São Cristóvão, State of Sergipe, on leaves of unidentified plants (7.xi.2019). As indicated in the generic notes above, there are no character states to distinguish ignacio from brevisetis .
