Oelschlaegera priesneri (Hood)  comb.n.

Chirothrips priesneri Hood 1949 a: 146  .

Distribution: Brazil.

Comments: Mound and Marullo (1996) stated that this species resembled C. ruthae Hood (1949 b)  and belonged in a new genus. According to zur Strassen (1961), ruthae  was similar to his new species C. madagassus  , which Bhatti (1990) designated as the type species of Oelschlaegera  . Chirothrips ruthae  is assigned here to Oelschlaegera  (New Combination) based on the examination of the holotype. The females of O. priesneri  have similar antenna, head, conical setae, fore wing and broad tergal and sternal posteromarginal flanges as the description and illustration of O. madagassus  and holotype of O. ruthae  . Oelschlaegera priesneri  females have glandular areas on abdominal sternites III –VI which are absent from the other two species.
