Recent additions to the EPPO Action List
In September 2005, EPPO Council agreed the following additions to the EPPO Action List:
Rhynchophorus palmarum (as A1 pest: absent from the EPPO region)
Sirococcus clavigignenti-juglandacearum (A1)
Dendrolimus superans (as A2 pest: locally present in the EPPO region)
Lymantria mathura (A2)
Strobilomya viaria (A2)
Hydrocotyle ranunculoides (A2)
Lysichiton americanus (A2)
It is worth noting that H. ranunculoides and L. americanus are the first two invasive plant species added to the EPPO Action List, as a result of the work of the Panel on Invasive Alien Species.
Within the lists of pests regulated in the EPPO region, Rhagoletis cingulata is transferred from the A1 to the A2 list.
For each individual pest, datasheets and distribution maps are currently being published on the EPPO web site (http://www.eppo.org/QUARANTINE/action_list.htm)
