status

 

Franklinothrips suzukii Okajima, 1979: 399 

The original two females of this species from Taiwan were examined, through the courtesy of Dr Shuji Okajima. However, it was not possible to arrange to compare these directly with specimens of F. caballeroi  at the same time. As indicated above, these two species described from opposite sides of the world are similar in colour and structure. They may represent a single species whose disjunct distribution results from the horticultural trade. In life, the head of this species is recessed into the pronotum (see fig. in Okajima, 1979), but the slide mounting procedure results in a changed appearance ( Fig. 19View FIGURES 12 – 20).
