Interceptions of Aulacaspis yasumatsui

In 2001, Aulacaspis yasumatsui (Hemiptera: Diaspididae – EPPO Alert List) was intercepted in France on two imported consignments of Cycas plants. The pest is not established in France, but it is felt that it could represent a threat to Cycas species grown under glass or in Mediterranean gardens.
