Abstract

Records are given of Taeniothrips sp. on apple, apricot and peach, Thrips carthami Shumsher Singh on apple and plum, T. flavus Schr. on apricot, plum and pear and Thrips sp. on apricot in the Simla area of Himachal Pradesh, India; although they played some part in pollination, this was more than offset by their feeding damage to the flowers.
