A New Gall-Inducing Species of <I>Holopothrips</I> (Thysanoptera: Phlaeothripinae) from Tabebuia Trumpet Trees in the Caribbean
AbstractIn this research we describe Holopothrips tabebuia new species based on specimens collected from Puerto Rico, Florida, and Dominican Republic. Holopothrips tabebuia differs from the closely allied H. inquilinus (Bournier) in shape and reticulation patterns of the metanotum, and in the number of epimeral setae. Most specimens have been collected from Bignonaceae, particularly from host plants in the genus Tabebuia. Thus, we have chosen the epithet tabebuia to denote its relationship with these plants.
