Agrilus planipennis(AGRLPL)

Distribution details in China (Sichuan)

Situation
Current pest situation evaluated by EPPO on the basis of information dated 2018: Absent, unreliable record
Comments
EPPO Reporting Service (2019/035) : the record in Sichuan is based on a single specimen deposited in the National Museum in Prague (CZ) labelled 'Szechuan'. More recent observations did not detect the pest. This single record is thus considered doubtful.
