New additions to the EPPO A1 and A2 Lists
In September 2012, the EPPO Council approved the addition of the following pests to the EPPO A1 and A2 Lists of pests recommended for regulation as quarantine pests. As some A1 pests are now found with a limited distribution in the EPPO region, they were transferred to the A2 List.
Addition to the A1 List (pests absent from the EPPO region):
- ‘Candidatus;Liberibacter solanacearum' (Solanaceae haplotypes) and its vector Bactericera cockerelli
- Keiferia lycopersicella
- Leucinodes orbonalis
Additions to the A2 List (pests locally present in the EPPO region):
- Pepino mosaic virus
- Pseudomonas syringae pv. actinidiae
Transfers from the A1 List to the A2 List:
- Maconellicoccus hirsutus
- Trioza erytreae
For each individual pest, datasheets are being prepared and will be available in due course on the EPPO website.
