oa Journal of the Entomological Society of Southern Africa - Two new species of Chirothrips Haliday 1836 (Thysanoptera, Thripidae) from South-Africa



The South African Thysanoptera are still largely unknown, although Dr. J. C. Faure, Mr. C. F. Jacot-Guillarmod and Dr. E. K. Hartwig have studied this order for many years and have published a number of contributions on its taxonomy. The thrips material in the Collection of Insects in the Department of Agriculture is already very extensive, and contains many undescriptionbed species. In this paper two new species of the genus Chirothrips Haliday, which have been collected on grass, are descriptionbed. I am greatly indebted to Dr. J. C. Faure, in whose laboratory I am working, for placing material at my disposal and for guidance in the preparation of this paper.
