Photos show the life history of Thrips hawaiiensis (Thysanoptera: Thripidae): egg (A), 1st instar nymph (B), 2nd instar nymph (C), prepupa (D), pupa (E) and adult (F). As one of the most common and significant thrips pests, T. hawaiiensis has become the major pest on banana and mango in tropical crops. In this issue, the biological characteristics and fitness costs of a moderate spinetoram-resistant in T. hawaiiensis population are reported (pp. 180-188). Photos were taken by FU Bu-Li at a banana plantation at Dala town, Chengmai, Hainan and Environment and Plant Protection Institute, Chinese Academy of Tropical Agricultural Sciences, Haikou, Hainan in May, 2016.
