Miridae of the genus Termatophylidea [Hemiptera] as predators of cacao thrips
Entomophaga 20 (4), 389-391
Abstract: Three species of the neotropical genus Termatophylidea are reported as predators-of the cacao thrips, Selenothrips rubrocinctus (GIARD), in Jamaica, Trinidad and Surinam. It is possible that these mirids are obligate predators and prey exclusively on thrips.
