Details on Frankliniella occidentalis and Globodera rostochiensis in Japan
In Japan, during a survey on Thysanoptera carried out in 1997 near sea ports and airports, Frankliniella occidentalis (EPPO A2 quarantine pest) was found at Otaru port, Hokkaido. It is recalled that F. occidentalis was first reported in Japan in 1990, in Honshu (Chiba and Saitama prefectures) and in Hokkaido in 1996 (Masumoto et al., 1998).
Globodera rostochiensis (EPPO A2 quarantine pest) was reported for the first time in Nagasaki prefecture in 1992, Kyushu, Japan. It was previously reported only from Hokkaido. The pathotype present in Nagasaki Prefecture was Ro1, as in Hokkaido (Aihara et al., 1998).
