Stigmothrips pteris Ananthakrishnan, 1971: 180 .

Two specimens have been examined from the original type series of 41 females and 23 males. These specimens clearly show that the notopleural sutures are not complete, despite being indicated as fully complete in the original illustration. The description did not mention the number of antennal sensoria, but there are two on III and three on IV, and although segment III is mainly yellow it is shaded light brown on the apical half, and the basal stem is very weakly shaded grey rather than clear yellow.

Specimens examined. INDIA, Kodaikanal, 1 female, 1 male from dry fern, 4.viii.1970, T.N. Ananthakrishnan No. 479 (BMNH).
