Apterygothrips remotus (Bianchi)  


Described in the genus Pseudocryptothrips   , but subsequently redescribed and transferred to Apterygothrips   by Sakimura and Bianchi (1977), this species apparently remains known only from the original three females that were collected on Haleakala, Maui. These specimens were described as apterae, lacking ocelli, with the mesopresternum reduced to a pair of small lateral triangles, antennal segment III with one sense cone and segment IV with two, and all the major setae with their apices pointed.
