Geographical distribution of Unaspis yanonensis

In the EPPO data sheet published in Bulletin OEPP/EPPO Bulletin 19, 721-724, in Quarantine Pests for Europe and in its second edition, the geographical distribution of Unaspis yanonensis (EPPO A2 quarantine pest) is given to include Australia, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Pakistan, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam. This relates back to information published in the 1970s and 1980s. However, CABI map no. 503 (of 1988-12) considers these records as ‘not substantiated’. India and Malaysia have already indicated to the EPPO Secretariat that they do not confirm the records (as shown in the second edition of Quarantine Pests for Europe), Australia now declares the same. The EPPO Secretariat concludes that all this group of records should be regarded as erroneous. The revised geographical distribution is the following:

EPPO Distribution List: Unaspis yanonensis

EPPO region: France (but not Corsica), Italy (few reports).
Asia: China (widespread), Japan, Korea Democratic People’s Republic, Korea Republic.
Oceania: Fiji.

This distribution list replaces all previous published EPPO Distribution Lists on Unaspis yanonensis!
