Nomenclatural details

Cryptothrips floridensis Watson, 1913: 145. [Priesner stated that floridensis "will have to be" transferred to Manothrips, but this was never carried out formally and there is no evidence that floridensis is more closely related to the type species of Manothrips than to that of Liothrips.]
