Head and pronotum of Eurythrips peccans from Mound (1976).

Belongs within: Phlaeothripidae.

The Glyptothripini are a group of thrips that generally have the head reticulately sculptured. The genus Terthrothrips was placed in a separate tribe by Priesner (1960), perhaps in part because of its possession of wing-retaining setae (claimed to be absent in Glyptothripini by Priesner 1960), but was placed with Glyptothripini by Mound & Marullo (1996). The development of wing-retaining setae in Phlaeothripidae is directly related to the possession of wings, which may be present or absent even within individuals of a single species, and is not generally indicative of higher relations.

Tylothrips is a genus of thrips found primarily in the New World, characterised by the present of a pair of long expanded ventrolateral setae on each of the meso- and metathorax (Mound & Marullo 1996).

Characters (from Priesner 1960): Head and legs more less reticulately sculpted, rough. Eyes almost always relatively small. Head with a short extension in front of eyes. Cheeks converging behind the eyes. Maxillary styles not approximated. Many body setae shaped like a fan, frayed or buttoned. Anal tube not reticulately sculpted.
