Phibalothrips Hood

This Panchaetothripinae genus comprises one species from southern Europe, one from Malaysia, and two species that have overlapping distributions between Africa and Southeast Asia. These two are P. peringueyi that is recorded widely across the Oriental region from South Africa to Japan, and P. l o n g i c e p s that is found in Australia as well as New Caledonia, New Guinea and Fiji. These two are distinguished from each other on slight differences in the colour of the base of the fore wings. P. longiceps is widely distributed across Australia north of Sydney, breeding on the leaves of grasses, but usually only on introduced species.
