Thrips quilicii Bournier 

Thrips quilicii Bournier, 2000: 100 

Described from a long series of both sexes at various sites on La Réunion, two female paratypes have been studied (Bassin Martin, under Citrus sinensis  in Moericke trap, ix. 1987 & x. 1987). The species is similar in structure to T. tabaci  in many character states, including the comb on tergite VIII ( Fig. 48View FIGURES 44 – 56). However, it lacks microtrichia on the pleurotergites and laterally on the tergites, tergite IX bears an anterior pair of campaniform sensilla, the metanotum is more clearly reticulate ( Fig. 45View FIGURES 44 – 56), and the pronotum has more discal setae.

Diagnosis. Body mainly yellow, antennal segments II, IV and VI –VII brown, III and V yellow but V brown in apical third; wings pale; major setae on pronotum and abdominal segments III –X dark brown. Ocellar setae III no longer than length of an ocellus, arising on margin of ocellar triangle close to fore ocellus; postocular setae I and III small, II and IV minute. Pronotum with about 30 weak discal setae. Metanotum with elongate reticles medially, campaniform sensilla present ( Fig. 45View FIGURES 44 – 56). Tergal sculpture lines extending to campaniform sensilla, VIII with comb of long fine microtrichia ( Fig. 48View FIGURES 44 – 56).
