Key to genera of Sericothripinae  

1. Usually micropterous, females rarely macropterous; metanotum with transverse rows of coarse microtrichia on posterior third ( Fig. 77 View FIGURES 67 – 79 ); abdominal tergites fully covered medially and laterally with dense rows of microtrichia, major setae arising submarginally ( Fig. 78 View FIGURES 67 – 79 ); tergal posterior margins with complete microtrichial comb ......... Sericothrips  

-. Always fully winged; metanotum without transverse rows of microtrichia, sculpture longitudinal ( Fig. 3 View FIGURES 1 – 7 ); rows of discal microtrichia present only on lateral thirds of abdominal tergites ( Fig. 5 View FIGURES 1 – 7 ); tergal marginal comb either present or absent medially ( Figs 5 View FIGURES 1 – 7 , 10 View FIGURES 8 – 14 , 72 View FIGURES 67 – 79 ) .............................................................................................................................. 2

2. Metasternal anterior border with deeply U-shaped emargination, usually more than half as deep as length of this sclerite ( Figs 6 View FIGURES 1 – 7 , 18 View FIGURES 15 – 26 ) ................................................................................................................................... Hydatothrips  

-. Metasternal anterior border transverse, or with shallow emargination ( Figs 39, 43 View FIGURES 37 – 45 , 49 View FIGURES 46 – 55 , 71 View FIGURES 67 – 79 ) .............. Neohydatothrips
