Thrips (Thysanoptera) Thrips (Thysanoptera)


Thrips (singular and plural) are small, slender, flattened insects found on living and dead plants and fungi, and on the ground. They feed on plant or fungal material, or on other small invertebrate animals. Manu plant-feeding species are serious economic pests. Thrips have uniquely modified sucking mouthparts; the wings (if present) are in two pairs and fringed with long hairs, as in many other very small flying insects.
