Sericicothrips haydni   Girault 1932: 1

Described from a single female taken on Psoralea tenax   at Brisbane, this species appears to be widespread in eastern Australia. Both sexes and larvae have been taken in considerable numbers on flowering Swainsonia galegifolia   , Jacksonia scoparia   and Indigofera australis   ( Fabaceae   ) at Brisbane (Qld), Coonabarabran ( NSW) and Nelligen ( NSW).

Female macroptera. Body strongly bicoloured; head brown with postoccipital region and anterior half of pronotum yellow; pronotal blotch and pteronota, also meso and metasternum, dark brown; abdominal segment I yellow with antecostal ridge interrupted medially, II –VI largely yellow with light brown shadings anterolaterally sometimes extending across tergite on II and III with antecostal ridge dark, VII –X dark brown; legs mainly brown, hind tibiae variably paler, all tarsi yellow; forewings with pale sub-basal area then uniformly light brown but paler toward apex. Head with occipital carina close to eyes; ocellar triangle transversely striate with markings in between the striae; ocellar setae III on or within anterior margins of triangle; three pairs of postocular setae, median pair long; postoccipital region transversely striate/reticulate; mouth cone extending between fore coxae. Pronotum anterior third transversely reticulate without internal markings; blotch transversely striate with many markings between the major lines; blotch almost rectangular, anterior and posterior margins concave but posteromedian paired setae arising on dark area. Mesonotum and metanotum with many small linear markings between the major sculpture lines, metanotal reticulation irregular but mainly linear. Metasternal anterior margin with shallow emargination. Forewing with or without one or two setae displaced distally onto second vein from first vein; wing apex with long sub-apical lobe. Tergites I –VI medially without marginal microtrichia, IV –VI with many discal microtrichia medially. Sternites II –VII medially without marginal microtrichia, but a few discal microtrichia sometimes extend mesad of setae S 1 near posterior margin.

Male. Similar to female, abdominal segment VII yellow; sternites V –VII with broadly transverse glandular area.
