Subfamily information

The species in this subfamily are presumed to feed on fungal spores, because they have rather broad maxillary stylets. Fungal spores have been observed within the bodies of many species, but this is not true of many other species. These thrips are found mainly in tropical countries, often on dead hanging leaves, but sometimes on dead branches or occasionally in leaf litter. Some of the larger species are ovoviviparous, and sub-social behaviour involving egg- or mate-guarding by males is common amongst larger species.

Mound & Palmer (1983) classified the Idolothripinae Bagnall (1908) into two Tribes: Idolothripini (with subtribes Idolothripina; Elaphrothripina; Hystricothripina), and Pygothripini (with subtribes Pygothripina; Allothripina; Compsothripina; Diceratothripina; Macrothripina). The following family group names have also been proposed for taxa within this subfamily:

Allidothripidae Bhatti, 1992: 138 [for Allidothrips]

Allothripidae Priesner, 1961:5 (Bhatti, 1992:139) [for Allopisothrips; Allothrips; Priesneriella; Pseudocryptothrips]

Megathripidae Karny, 1913:6 [for Bacillothrips; Bactrothrips; Megalothrips; Megathrips]
