  • The diversity of biologies amongst Australian thrips of the family Aeolothripidae is discussed. In the basal clades of this family species are phytophagous, also sometimes monophagous and univoltine (Cranothrips Bagnall and Cycadothrips Mound). In the most advanced clades, species are obligate predators, often on other thrips species (Franklinothrips Back and Mymarothrips Bagnall), but in the intermediate clades many species are both phytophagous and facultative predators (Aeolothrips Haliday… CONTINUE READING
