Edissa steinerae Mound 

( Fig. 11View FIGURES 11–15)

The genus Edissa  is a member Of the subfamily DendrOthripinae  , and is particularly unusual within that grOup in being assOciated with the leaves Of POaceae  rather than with brOad leaved plants. The genus cOmprises twO species, Of which One is knOwn Only frOm SOuth Africa. HOwever, the secOnd species, steinerae  , was described frOm the rainfOrest area Of nOrth eastern Australia and alsO recOrded frOm Thailand and the BOnin Islands Of Japan ( MOund 1999). Here it is recOrded frOm a similar ecOlOgical area in sOuthern China, and is thus anOther example Of the relatiOnship Of the thrips fauna Of nOrthern Australia tO that Of sOutheast Asia. This is a pale yellOw species with very slender wings, and withOut prOminent setae, but with a dark area On the anteriOr margin Of the head ( Fig. 11View FIGURES 11–15). It is unusual amOngst the DendrOthripinae  in having 7-segmented antennae with simple sense cOnes in segments III and IV.
