Australasian Region (and Pacific)

Australia has an extensive endemic thrips fauna, but the northern part of the continent shares many species with Indonesia. Unfortunately, the highly diverse fauna of New Guinea is almost completely unstudied. New Zealand and the Pacific Islands, particularly New Caledonia and Fiji, have a smaller endemic thrips fauna, although the fauna of these smaller land masses is largely dominated by introduced species.
