Genus information

Chalepothrips Priesner, 1968: 191. Type species Chalepothrips ardisiae Priesner 1968, by monotypy. Neither the genus nor the only species ever placed in it were ever formally described. The combination was published in a key to Liothrips species as "?Chalepothrips ardisiae". The query mark in front of these names is interpreted under the terms of Article 15.1 of the Code of Zoological Nomenclature as "conditional" and both names are thus unavailable.
