In this study the distribution of Gynaikothrips ficorum (Marchal) and Gynaikothrips uzeli (Zimmermann) in Argentina is extended, both galls-inducing species have been introduced in this country. We also describe and illustrate the morphological characteristics that differentiate them. Gynaikothrips ficorum produces leaf galls form of folded sheets in Ficus microcarpa L. and G. uzeli in Ficus benjamina L.
