Pore plates in females have not been demonstrated to have any functional significance, and they possibly represent some form of genetic aberration. Such inversion of a sex-linked character state has been reported occasionally amongst other Thysanoptera. For example, in the genus Machatothrips (Phlaeothripidae) with 14 described species from the Old World tropics, females but not males bear a row of tubercles on the inner margin of the fore femora. However, in two species of this genus from Malaysia males sometimes have similar although rather weak tubercles (Palmer & Mound, 1978).
