Neohydatothrips aztecus Johansen, 1983: 113   .

Female macroptera. Colour: mainly yellowish brown, ocellar area brown, also pronotal blotch, anterior third and lateral areas of mesonotum and metanotum, antecostal ridges and anterolateral areas on tergites II–VI and VII–IX; fore wing grey; antennal segments I–II brown, III yellow with base brown and apical third light brown, IV brown with basal third yellow, V brown with small yellow ring at base, VI–VIII brown.

Structure: Occipital apodeme not confluent with posterior margin of eyes, ocellar area transversely striate; pronotum transversely striate with distinct blotch; mesonotum transversely striate; metanotum longitudinally reticulate; metasternal plate with shallow emargination; fore wing second vein with 2 setae; comb of microtrichia incomplete on tergites II–VI and complete on VII–VIII; tergite IX with 2 pairs of mid-dorsal setae.

Material studied. None.

Comments. This species was described from 4 females and 2 males collected in Pedregal de San Ángel, Mexico City, Mexico. Although placed in synonymy with N. signifer   by Mound & Marullo (1996) based on the similarities on colouration and structure, it can be distinguished by the brown tergites VII–IX ( Johansen 1983). Moreover, it was described as having two setae on the second vein of the fore wing in contrast to the single seta found in N. burungae   .
