White blemishes occurred on the rind of Satsuma mandarin fruits cultivated in greenhouses of Numazu City, Shizuoka Prefecture in 2000. Blemished fruits were present in 21 greenhouses (70% of all greenhouses within the city) with an area of 134 a (81.2% of total greenhouse area). All insects collected from 7 damaged Satsuma mandarin fruits were identified as <i>Thrips tabaci</i>. This species accounted for 95.2% of all insects, 720 individuals, collected on yellow sticky-traps from 25 May to 7 June in a greenhouse. Experimental infestation of <i>T. tabaci</i> adults collected from leek caused the same kind of damage on ripe Satsuma mandarin fruits. <i>T. tabaci</i> made minute vacant spaces in the rind by piercing and sucking the surface tissues and the blemished part became whitish.
