Exothrips Priesner

Nineteen species are listed in this genus, of which 12 are from India , five from Africa, one from the Philippines, and one from Europe. No revision or identification system to these has been published, apart from Bhatti (1975) who provided a key to 10 species from India together with an extensive diagnosis of the genus. Rhamphothrips and Parexothrips are considered to be related ( Bhatti, 1978), because the females in all three genera share a remarkable condition of having the median two pairs of setae on sternite VII arising close to each other. Mound & Tree (2011) suggested that Exothrips possibly represents a grass-feeding lineage of species derived from Rhamphothrips , in which the head is larger relative to the pronotum, the pronotum is not elongate, and the prosternal ferna do not curve forward medially.
