Abstract  Megalurothrips usitatus is an important pest of legumes. It has a broad host range, but is an especially important pest of cowpea crops. This species can not only cause huge economic losses, but can also spread a variety of plant viruses, thereby significantly impacting both crop growth and quality. This article reviews the morphological characteristics, geographic genetic differentiation, bio-ecological characteristics, occurrence, and progress in the prevention and control of M. usitatus. Obstacles hindering the development and application of green prevention and control technology for M. usitatus are also discussed.
