RETANA SALAZAR, Axel P.. Una visión filogenética de Frankliniella (Thysanoptera: Thripidae). Rev. biol. trop [online]. 1998, vol.46, n.2, pp.397-406. ISSN 0034-7744.

The phylogeny of the species groups of Frankliniella and the position of Exophtalmothirps and Bolbothrips are discussed with reference to recent literature and analysis with the cladistic software PAUP 3.0 in its heuristic option, the matrix has 24 taxa and 25 characteristics for each; 1) the intonsa group is not a well defined taxon and may include groups of species, but there are no good morphological traits for its recognition, 2) the pulchella and cephalica groups are consistent monophyletic groups of species, 3) the minuta group is monophyletic with a few morphological constraints, 4) Exophtalmothrips and Bolbothrips seem to be segregated, and not synonymous of Frankliniella.

Keywords : Frankliniella; Exophtalmothrips; Bolbothrips; phylogenetics; Thysanoptera; Thripidae.
