Abstract

Fifty species in five genera of fungus feeding thrips, collected in part by Bush Blitz, are described. Details of 35 new species are combined with species previously named but not recognisable from literature, and illustrated identification keys to all species published. All specimens are data-based. These thrips are important ecologically, being associated with nutrient recycling from dead plants, and as food for various birds, lizards and frogs.
