Male Allothrips megacephalus stannardi, from PaDIL.

Belongs within: Phlaeothripidae.

The Allothripina is a group of small, wingless fungus-feeding thrips, most species of which have a large terminal sensorium on the maxillary palps that superficially resembles an extra segment (Mound & Palmer 1983).

Characters (from Mound & Palmer 1983; Priesner 1960): Smaller forms, all of them wingless. Head often slightly advanced before the eyes. Eyes small, usually directed forward; when somewhat bigger, then head constricted behind the eyes and ommata strongly arched. Terminal sensorium on maxillary palps stout. Metathoracic sternopleural sutures usually present.
