Moundothrips Wilson  

The only species in this Panchaetothripinae   genus, M. apterygus   , is an Australian endemic, and is known only from wingless individuals. The plant species on which it actually breeds remains uncertain. Claimed originally to have been collected from the leaves of grasses, subsequent observations suggested that the host might be a species of Restionaceae   , but this has yet to be confirmed. Information and illustrations for this genus are web-available ( Mound, Paris et al., 2011).
