Sternochetus mangiferae is not present in China

Quarantine Pests for Europe indicates that Sternochetus mangiferae (Coleoptera, Curculionidae – EPPO A1 quarantine pest) is possibly present in China (unconfirmed) and present in Hong Kong. According to recent information, the record in Hong Kong is an interception and it also appears that the source of the unconfirmed record in China cannot be traced, so it should be considered erroneous. Accordingly, the situation in China and in China (Hong Kong) will be corrected to: Absent, intercepted only.
