Bagnalliella mojave (Thysanoptera: Phlaeothripidae) thrips inhabit small and isolated Yucca brevifolia (Agavaceae) host plants

William D. Wiesenborn

Abstract


I found Bagnalliella mojave Hood (Thysanoptera: Phlaeothripidae) restricted to small, isolated Yucca brevifolia Engelmann (Liliales: Agavaceae) that likely compete less for soil moisture and have high leaf water-contents.
