oa Journal of the Entomological Society of Southern Africa - Studies on the genus Chirothrips Haliday (Thysanoptera: Thripidae) with descriptions of new species
In the past four years the author had the opportunity of studying extensive material of the genus Chirothrips Haliday, 1836, collected in many parts of the world and sent in for identification. Some of the species examined have been recognized as new to science, others as too little known, and the males of three species as undescriptionbed. Besides these, two species, formerly put into synonymy, proved to be valid. Moreover, the material yields many new records worth publishing. Whereas four of the species have been descriptionbed or discussed in a preceding paper (zur Strassen, 1963), this contribution should be regarded as the second part of the study.
