Arorathips xanthius  (Hood)

Chirothrips xanthius Hood 1934: 408  .

Arorathips xanthius  (Hood); Mound and Marullo 1996: 95.

Chirothrips oryzae De Santis 1968: 254  ; Mound and Marullo 1996: 95.

Distribution: Panama, Argentina, Brazil.

Comments: A paratype of C. oryzae  in the USNM apparently has a tooth on the first tarsal segment on each side. A tooth on the first tarsal segment is unusual and because the tarsi are collapsed, it is considered an artefact. Antennal segments I –III and most of IV and V are yellow. The head is brown and body is bright yellow with the apex of abdominal segment X brown. A specimen examined from Brazil was anatomically similar but the body and antenna were shaded more extensively brownish yellow.
