Thysanoptera of the forest of white sabine from Spain (Insecta, Thysanoptera)
A study of the Thysanoptera fauna existing in white sabine forests in Spain is presented in this paper. A total of 47 species has been identified of which one is a new species. Scirtothrips montanus n. sp., Aeolothrips albicinctus, Rubiothrips validus and Thrips montanus are new records for our country, and Allothrips pillichellus bicolor is new for the Palaearctic region. The tree plants, specially refered to white sabine Juniperus thurifera Linnaeus, and the grass are the places with the biggest fauna. The white sabine represents a very important zone for the thrips fauna of our country, both for the new species and for the rare or not well known ones. This fauna establishes a new reason to preserved this type of forests which are going to be extinguished in Spain.
