A new species of the genus Hapalogenys, Hapalogenys bengalensis sp. nov. is described from fourteen specimens col-lected from the Bay of Bengal coast. The species is distinct in having three longitudinal dark stripes; pelvic-fin tip almost reaching the base of first anal-fin spine when depressed; transverse scale rows above lateral line 7-8, below lateral line 19-20; gill rakers 18 (7 on lower limb and 11 on upper limb); posterior angle of jaw reaching vertical through anterior rim of eye. Genetic divergence (13.0-14.2%) and analysis of NJ tree shows that the new species is closely related to H. kishi-nouyei in the "Hapalogenys kishinouyei complex" with significant morphological difference from the other three species reported from the same complex.

Two new species of Neohydatothrips are described from India, N. chandrai and N. plumeria. The former was collected on leaves of a hedge plant in northwest India, and the latter on flowers and leaves of Plumeria sp. in eastern India. A key to the seven species of Neohydatothrips recorded from India is also provided. Partial sequence data of mitochondrial cyto-chrome c oxidase (mtCOI) from the holotypes of each of these two new species were generated. © 2016 Magnolia Press.

A new species-group in the genus Thrips is designated as Thrips formosanus group from Asia and Australia. This includes the following six species: T. floreus Kurosawa from Japan, T. formosanus Priesner from Taiwan, T. obscuripes Priesner and T. rostratus Priesner from Java, T. tanicus Bhatti from India and T. hoddlei Mound and Masumoto from Australia. One new species, Thrips moundi sp. N., is described in this group from specimens collected on grasses in Himachal Pradesh State of India. A key to the seven species of Thrips formosanus group is also provided. Partial sequence data for the gene mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase (mtCOI) from the holotype and paratype of this new species is provided. Copyright © 2015 Magnolia Press.

The Holarctic genus Odontothrips of Megalurothrips genus-group was established by Amyot & Serville in 1843 with type species Thrips phaleratus Haliday (Mound & Palmer 1981, Mirab-balou & Chen 2011). This genus is known by 32 species from the Palearctic and Nearctic regions (ThripsWiki 2015), and these species are flower-living and mainly associated with flowers of family Fabaceae (Xie et al. 2010). The pest status of Odontothrips species is uncertain, but some species are reported to cause superficial damage to the flowers on which they feed. O. confusus Priesner is reported as a pest on lucerne in France and Czech Republic (Pitkin 1972), and also on legumes in Romania (Pustai et al. 2015). O. loti (Haliday) is reported as a major pest on Alfalfa in north China, where it feeds on tender leaves and causes leaf curling, whitening and withering (Kou et al. 2011).
