Print Fact SheetTenothrips longirostrum

Distinguishing features

This species has not been studied by the present authors. According to Nakahara (1995: 236) it is distinguished from the other five species he placed in Ewartithrips by the long mouth cone that extends onto the mesosternum.

Related species

Although transferred to the genus Ewartithrips by Nakahara (1996), separation of that Californian genus from the Mediterranean genus Tenothrips is doubtful (Bhatti, 2003).

Biological data

Presumably flower-living, and possibly in Lupinus spp. [Fabaceae].

Known only from California.
