Hindsiothrips Stannard

All six described species in this genus are from the Holarctic ( ThripsWiki 2019). The genus was described for a North American species and currently two Nearctic species are known, H. pullatus and H. robustisetis ( Mound & Marullo 1996) . In contrast, three species are described from Europe ( H. bonessi , H. navarrensis and H. oettingeni ) ( Goldarazena & Mound 1998). The sixth species, H. sisakhti Minaei ( Fig. 1 View FIGURES 1–12 ) was described from Iran collected at Sisakht, the capital of Dena County, Kohgiluyeh and Boyer-Ahmad province ( Minaei 2013). In this study several specimens of the species have been collected from leaf litter around Fars province.
