oa Journal of the Entomological Society of Southern Africa - Thysanoptera from papyrus in the Sudan

Volume 19, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 0013-8789



Last year Dr. W. J. Hall, Director of the Commonwealth Institute of Entomology, kindly sent me some thrips collected on papyrus in the Sudan by Dr. I. W. B. Thornton, Lecturer in Zoology, University College of Khartoum. I am greatly indebted to Drs. Hall and Thornton for allowing me to study this interesting material. In addition to the specimens dealt with below, the collection contained many larvae, which I have not been able to study in detail. Four very interesting uniques were also included, which I am retaining for later study, in the hope that additional specimens will be collected.
