Thrips hawaiiensis (Morgan)  

Although this is a common pantropical flower thrips   , it has been reported rarely from Africa ( Mound 2010). In high numbers the species can cause damage to fruits of banana and citrus ( Chiu et al. 1991; Tsai et al. 1992). A single female was intercepted from Ethiopia, at the flower auction in Rijnsburg, 4.ii. 2005, on Rosa— cut flower (J. G. de Zeeuw).
