A second Australian species of Parabaliothrips Priesner is described, P. newmani, forming male aggregations on the leaf buds of Moreton Bay fig, Ficus macrophylla (Moraceae). The genus, predominantly south-east Asian, is redefined and a key provided to the five described species. Members of this genus feed on leaves across a wide range of plant families, although each species is host specific. The host plant of the previously known Australian species, P. setifer Karny, is newly recognised as Leucopogon lanceolatus (Epacridaceae), and different south-east Asian species are associated with species of Betulaceae, Hamamelidaceae and Fagaceae.
