My collection currently contains about 350 different extant species out of 120 genera and some fossil taxa. Most of them are from Europe and South America. Several come from various Asian countries, the United States, from New Zealand and some from southern and eastern parts of Africa. My collection is constantly growing and expanding.
I am always interested in an exchange of species.

All thrips samples in my collection are embedded individually in Canada balm on microscope slides and are annotated with information about their locality, the plants they where caught on or with further data. All taxa are arranged alphabetically within the genera and species.
