CORRECTION OF Ceratothripoides claratris REPORTS TO Ceratothripoides brunneus (THYSANOPTERA: THRIPIDAE) IN CUBA

Moraima Suris, A. Rodríguez-Romero


Gently, Dr. Laurence Mound sent us his paper «The Old-World genus Ceratothripoides (Thysanoptera: Thripidae) with a new genus for related New-World species» published in the magazine Zootaxa 2230: 57 –63, on 14 Sept. 2009, with the suggestion that the species previously reported by us as Ceratothripoides claratris Bagnall (Rev. Protección Veg. Vol. 24 no. 1 of 2009) had to correspond with Ceratothripoides brunneus Bagnall, for the coloration observed in the forewings. For the identification of this species as C. claratris, we took into account, among others features, the description offered in the Thrips of California1 indicating that it has pale but weakly shaded forewings, and assumed that the species found in Cuba could display this coloration.
