Cartomothrips manukae Stannard, 1962


Cartomothrips manukae Stannard, 1962  

This species was described as a New Zealand species, where it is recorded widely across both North and South Islands ( Mound & Walker 1986) in association with Leptospermum scoparium   , Kunzea ericoides   and Metrosideros perforata   . In Australia, it has been taken in large numbers in the seed capsules of L. scoparium   (also L. nitida   ) in both northwest and southern Tasmania, but only a single female has been studied from the Australian mainland, taken in the Adelaide Hills, South Australia. The lateral setae on the abdomen are longer than in any other species of the genus, and setae S 2 on tergite IX of males are exceptionally long.
