Abstract

The thrips listed below and the new Xylaplothrips species descriptionbed in this paper were all collected in termite nests. The occurrence of Chirothrips hoodi Jacot-Guillarmod within these nests could be accidental; the termites may carry the thrips into their nests with the grass which they harvest. The new species may, however, be a true termitophile; it is brachypterous and its congeners are found in dark and mouldy places, even in a rats nest.
