Thrips of California 2012

Thrips of California 2012

Helping distinguish pest species among California’s rich thrips fauna

This new version includes much additional information with many new images, and replaces the original 2008 version that was revised in 2009. We have recorded four further species known to breed in California and have added another 24 species that are known from Pacific territories, particularly Hawaii, or the Carribean region, and are regarded as potential invaders to California.
