Globodera pallida is not present in Mexico

The abstract of an article in Nematologia Mediterranea 15, 1-2 (1988), appearing in Helminthological Abstracts, suggests that Globodera pallida (EPPO A2 quarantine pest) is present in Mexico. However, the author of the article (Prof. C. Sosa-Moss) has contacted the IPPC Secretariat of FAO to declare that this is false: the abstract is misleading and does not clearly indicate what is stated in the original article, that G. pallida has never been found in Mexico. This mistaken record temporarily appears in the EPPO PQR data base.
