Rhamphothrips Karny 1913: 123   . Type species Rhynchothrips tenuirostris Karny 1912   . Rhamphothrips Karny   ; Bhatti (1978); Mound & Tree (2011).

This genus can be distinguished from other genera in the family Thripidae   by the following features: small head and remarkably long mouthcone [Mound & Tree (2011) suggest that the African species may have a shorter mouthcone]; median anteriorly directed fernal process on the prosternum; female sternite VIII with two pairs of median setae close together and distant from the third pair; hypomere of male genitalia typically not dilated subapically.
