Female Hoplandrothrips armiger, from Thrips of California.

Belongs within: Phlaeothripidae.

Hoplandrothrips is a diverse genus of thrips that are mostly fungus-feeders on dead plant branches, though members of one species group induce leaf roll galls (Mound & Marullo 1996).

Characters (from Mound & Marullo 1996): Antennae eight-segmented, segment III with three (rarely two) sense cones, segment IV with four sense cones; mouth cone long and pointed, extending across prosternum; maxillary stylets usually retracted to eyes, close together medially; prosternal basantra usually not present, probasisternal plates large; male fore femora with an apical tubercle, fore tarsal tooth present in both sexes; metathoracic sterno-pleural sutures usually absent; forewing with small median constriction, or pocket; pelta bell-shaped; sternal glandular area of males differing in size and shape between species.
