Six new South African species of Thysanoptera of which the types are in the authors collection are descriptionbed in this paper and new records of eight previously descriptionbed species are given. A specific character is also statistically analysed to show the chances of intergradation of two different distribution ranges. The aim of the statistical analysis is to stress the need of applying elementary statistical methods, especially where large series of specimens are available.
