Occurrence of Cameraria ohridella in Croatia and Slovenia

The leaf miner, Cameraria ohridella, is a new pest of horse chestnut (Aesculus hippocastanum) which has recently been reported from several countries of Central Europe: Republic of Macedonia (1985), Austria (1989), north of Italy (1992), south Germany (1994), Hungary (1994) and Slovakia (1996) (see EPPO RS 96/211). A paper from Milevoj and Macek (1997) also mentions its presence in Croatia in 1995, and gives details on the first findings in Slovenia. In this country, C. ohridella was observed for the first time in Novo mesto in June 1995 and then spread in 1996 to other places (Oresje, Maribor, isolated outbreaks in Ljubljana).
