Hi! ChunXingWong found this pic in the internet. http://anic.ento.csiro.au/thrips/identif...
i don't know if they are common. i found them in our small roof garden.. These thrips really has longer tail compared to the Cuban Laurel Thrips suggested by freelancing.
Are these common in your area?I have never seen thrip species with such long tails, not even in the Internet.
Seems like the thrip larva in the first photo is the largest larva of them all.
looks like something out of the movie splice
very interesting...thanks !
@freelancing: these probably are Gynaikothrips ficorum (Cuban Laurel Thrips)..thanks for the help. I uploaded a fourth pic. it's not very clear though.
The black one appears to be Gynaikothrips ficorum (Cuban Laurel Thrips) - the one w/ the red stripe might be another species... unsure.
Look like scorcipons
So cool Aldrin!!
Great spotting, I have never seen a thrip this long.
