Thrips palmi Karny 

Thrips palmi Karny, 1925 a: 10 

This worldwide tropical pest, the melon thrips  , has been described from parts of Asia under five other names ( Mound, 2010). There are few published records from Africa, but it has been reported from Côte d’Ivoire ( Bournier, 2002), and from La Réunion ( Bournier, 2000). It is very similar to the African species T. pusillus  , but that usually has dark markings on the tergites, and ocellar setae III closer together behind the fore ocellus. Diagnosis. Body and legs yellow, major setae shaded; antennal segments IV –V yellow but brown distally, VI –VII brown; forewings pale. Antennae 7 -segmented. Ocellar setae III small, just outside ocellar triangle. Pronotum with 2 pairs of long posteroangular setae, discal setae well-developed. Metanotal sculpture lines converging to posterior margin, but transverse and curving at anterior ( Fig. 37View FIGURES 31 – 43); median setae arising behind anterior margin; campaniform sensilla present. Forewing first vein with 3 (or 2) setae on distal half. Tergite VIII with complete comb, microtrichia long and slender; pleurotergites and sternites without discal setae, sternal marginal setae almost as long as sternites.
