Asprothrips Crawford   :

Seven species are now known in this genus, all from southeast Asia. These range from seminigricornis   , a white species with black antennal apices, to species with the body bicoloured or dark and the wings variously coloured. Two of the species have become widespread, presumably through the trade in horticultural produce. One of these, bimaculatus   , was described from Martinique ( Michel & Ryckewaert 2014) and subsequently recorded from China and Malaysia ( Tong et al. 2016). The other, seminigricornis   , was described from Australia but has been found widely around the world (Mound et al. 2016).
