The species from Australia in the genera Carientothrips and Nesothrips are reviewed and an illustrated key is provided. Carientothrips is distinguished based on the unusual form of the maxillary palps. Two species, badius Hood comb.n. and capricornis Mound comb.n., are transferred to Nesothrips from Carientothrips; and Nesothrips melinus Mound syn.n. is synonymised with Carientothrips miskoi Mound. In Carientothrips the following six new species are described: alienatus sp.n., calami sp.n., horni sp.n., palumai sp.n., snowi sp.n., tasmanica sp.n.; while flavitibia Moulton stat.rev. is recalled from synonymy with C. mjobergi (Karny). In Nesothrips four new species are described: barrowi sp.n., brigalowi sp.n., coorongi sp.n., rossi sp.n.; while rhizophorae (Girault) syn.n. is placed as a synonym of minor Bagnall.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
