Four Thrips species: T. australis, T. palmi, T. simplex e T. tabaci are recorded in Brazil. Three of them are crop pests and T. australis is commonly associated to Eucalyptus spp. flowers. Besides being polyphagous, T. palmi and T. tabaci are also virus-vector. A key to distinguish these species is provided, as well as their characterization.
