Frankliniella parvula


parvula Hood, 1925  

( Figs 15 View FIGURES 13 – 21 , 50, 138, 153)

This brown species is not yet recorded from Brazil, but is included here because as a widespread insect in Central America that is common in the flowers of Musa   and Theobroma cacao ( Mound & Marullo 1996)   it is likely to be found in this country. It is very distinctive in having the pedicel of antennal segment III elongate, and the fore wings are dark although slightly paler at the base.
