status

 

Franklinothrips tenuicornis Hood, 1915: 163 

Described from Panama, with the synonym Mitothrips petulans Bagnall  based on a male from Trinidad, this species has been studied from Trinidad, Surinam, Venezuela, Ecuador, Paraguay, Peru, and southern Brazil [ SMF, BMNH, USNM]. Many of these specimens were taken from vines, including Vitex  and Ipomoea  , but others were taken from dead branches. The forewing pattern is similar to that of F. vespiformis  , but antennal segment IV is paler than in that species, sometimes being largely yellow ( Fig. 13View FIGURES 12 – 20).
