Aleurocanthus woglumi is not present in Peru

The EPPO Secretariat has recently been informed by the Peruvian authorities that Aleurocanthus woglumi (EPPO A1 quarantine pest) has never been found in Peru. The only reference for the record appearing in the 2nd editions of Quarantine Pests for Europe was the CABI map (no other publication mentions A. woglumi in Peru), which is based on a personal communication made in 1969. This record is most probably erroneous, and A. woglumi can be considered as absent from Peru.
