( Fig. 13 View FIGURES 11–15 )

This species has previOusly been knOwn Only frOm a single female taken in a rainfOrest area Of Queensland in nOrth eastern Australia ( MOund 2011). It is the Only species recOgnised in the genus, and the relatiOnships tO Other Thripinae   are far frOm clear. The transverse sculpture lines On the head and bOdy ( Fig. 13 View FIGURES 11–15 ), the well-develOped lObed tergal craspeda, and the presence Of a single dOrsO-apical seta On the first antennal segment are remarkable features Of this thrips. It is here recOrded frOm China fOr the first time, and represents yet anOther interesting link between the thrips fauna Of trOpical Asia and nOrthern Australia.
