Title: How to classify the species of the genus Thrips (Thysanoptera)?
Year: 1997
Volume: 58
Pages: 227-235.

Abstract: The genus Thrips Linnaeus is one of the largest genera in the order Thysanoptera comprising about 275 species. It is difficult to work out a useful key to species of this genus if certain phylogenetic groupings of the species are to be taken into consideration. In order to get an approximate phylogenetic line of the species, the question is discussed which of the ancestral (plesiomorphic) characters are "older" than other ones, and in contrast, which of the advanced (apomorphic) characters are "younger" than others.
