Halmathrips Hood   :

As indicated by the key to genera, the five described species listed in this genus, all from the Mexican and Caribbean area, also an undescribed species from Brazil, are similar in structure to those placed in Leucothrips   . The generic classification of Neotropical dendrothripines remains unclear. Two species described from southern Brazil are listed in Pseudodendrothrips   , but they are more closely related to Leucothrips   and Halmathrips   .
