Abstract
Liothrips adisi (Thysanoptera, Insecta) was found to be the vector of Fusarium decemcellulare, causal agent of supersprouting in the guaraná species Paulinia cupana var. sorbilis. Cutting
of infested plant parts and biological control of thrips by two species of ants are proposed. Improvement of P. cupara against insect attacks by grafting with P. rugosa and by genetic alteration is suggested.
