Hydatothrips adolfifriderici Karny, 1913: 218   .

This Afrotropical species was described originally from Nigeria and is widespread from South Africa to Sudan (zur Strassen 2004), but has been recorded from Yemen in south western of Arabian Peninsula (zur Strassen 1990). In general appearance and characters, it is close to H. spadix (Hartwig)   from South Africa, but is distinguished by: fore wing costal setae at middle shorter than width of wing at middle (as long as width of wing in the middle in H. spadix   ); abdominal segments IV and V and antennal segments III–V largely yellow ( Figs 4 & 6 View FIGURES 1–7 ) (uniformly dark brown, except antennal segment III yellow at basal half in H. spadix   ) ( Bhatti 1973). This species is widely associated with leaves of Fabaceae   and Moraceae   ( Priesner 1965; zur Strassen 1990), and is an important pest of Phaseolus vulgaris   in Africa ( Nyasani et al. 2012). It was also collected from these families during the current study.
