Takethrips Nonaka & Jangvitaya


Takethrips Nonaka & Jangvitaya  

This genus comprises two species collected from unidentified bamboos and grasses in Thailand. T. bambusae   has a stout and serrated ovipositor that does not extend to the apex of the abdomen, whereas in T. megas   the ovipositor is very weakly sclerotised with no marginal serrations ( Fig. 91 View FIGURES 86 – 92 ). Another genus from Thailand and Japan, Yoshinothrips   , is similar to Takethrips   , but the three known species all have two pairs of long pronotal posteroangular setae, and the ovipositor is stout and boldly serrated (Mound & Ng, 2009).
