Arorathrips nigriceps (Hood)  ; Mound and Marullo 1996: 94.

Distribution: Brazil.

Comments: This species is known only from the holotype and one female paratype. Antennal segment II is strongly angulate with rather straight anterior margin and resembles those of some Chirothrips  species. The invaginations of the mesosternal furca are barely separated by about 7 µm. Abdominal sternites have tuberculate scallops and low lobes on posterior margin. The head is brown, pronotum is yellow with a medial pale brown longitudinal area, pterothorax is shaded light brown, abdomen and legs are yellow, and fore wing is light brown with pale base.
