Cartomothrips laughlini Mound & Walker, 1982 

This species remains known only from a few specimens beaten from Morgania glabra  ( Scrophulariaceae  ) in South Australia, although there is no evidence that this is the plant on which the insect breeds. The males have setae S 2 on tergite IX as short as those of browni  and neboissi  , but both pairs of intermediate setae in laughlini  are also short, only a little longer than setae S 2. In general structure this species is similar to abrsi  , but that is distinguished in both sexes by the bicoloured antennal segments, and the unusually short third seta in the sub-basal series of the fore wing.
