Thrips microchaetus Karny  

This species is widespread in Africa, where it occurs in many kinds of flowers. Its geographical distribution is mostly Saharan and reaches from Morocco to Arabia, with a southern extension into Kenya ( Zur Strassen & Van Harten 2006). The species has many characters in common with the Afrotropical Thrips tenellus Trybom ( Mound 2010)   . From Ethiopia one male was found in an import firm at Sassenheim, 15.iv. 2005, on Rosa   cut flower (J.G. de Zeeuw), and one female in import firm at Noordwijk, 11.v. 2005, on Dianthus   cut flower (J.G. de Zeeuw). In 2010 in Japan an interception of a single female was done from Ethiopia on the same host ( Masumoto et al. 2012 a)
