Frankliniella occidentalis (western flower thrips) is a member of the insect order Thysanoptera. The order Thysanoptera is composed exclusively of thrips (at least 5500 species). Frankliniella occidentalis is the primary thrips vector that transmits 5 of the 14 described species of Tospoviruses, the only plant infecting member of the family Bunyaviridae. No members of Thysanoptera have been sequenced and there are currently 13,843 EST sequences available at dbEST, of which 13,839 Sanger sequences were derived from a normalized cDNA library of first instar larvae in our laboratory.
