Williamsiellina

Lissothrips muscorum, from E. H. Strickland Entomological Museum.


Belongs within: Phlaeothripidae.
Contains: Sophiothrips.

The Williamsiellina is a group of thrips primarily associated with mosses. They usually have the maxillary stylets widely separated when retracted (except in two species of Lissothrips); the stylets are retracted deeply in Lissothrips, but are very low in Williamsiella. The maxillary stylets probably retract about halfway into the head in Pueblothrips minuta, which is only known from the type series in which the stylets are probably not in the resting position (Mound & Marullo 1996).

Characters (from Priesner 1960, as Williamsiellina + Lissothripina): Small, with relatively small eyes. Anal tube short.
