Thrips hawaiiensis (Morgan 1913)

This species is a polyphagous and common flower inhabiting thrips in Asia, part of the Pacific, Africa, as well as North and Central America. Further, it has been accidentally introduced into Europe and has spread around the Mediterranean region. There, it was first reported from France (Reynaud et al., 2008). Among others, it is a pest of banana (banana flower thrips), citrus, mango and figs. On the other hand it is also an important pollinator of oil palms.
