EPPO Distribution List for Ditylenchus dipsaci

Due to the new records of Ditylenchus dipsaci (EPPO A2 quarantine pest) from Albania and Armenia the distribution of the nematode has to be changed.

EPPO Distribution List: Ditylenchus dipsaci

D. dipsaci occurs locally in most temperate areas of the world (Europe and the Mediterranean region, North and South America, northern and southern Africa, Asia and Oceania) but it does not seem able to establish itself in tropical regions except at higher altitudes that have a temperate climate. In most countries regulatory measures (e.g. certification schemes) are applied to minimize further spread of D. dipsaci.
