Distribution details in Netherlands

Situation
Current pest situation evaluated by EPPO on the basis of information dated 2018: Present, widespread
Pest status declared by NPPO: European populations: Present; non-European populations: Absent, intercepted only (2018-04)
From CABI Pest map 284 (1999): Present, widespread
Comments
EPPO Reporting Service (500/08): limited distribution and subject to internal regulations. First found in 1987 on Euphorbia pulcherrima. Only few infestations known after eradication programme, these nurseries being under official control.

More recently found to be widespread, and mainly biotype B.

According to report at EPPO Conference in Pruhonice (1998), the European populations are no longer considered to be of phytosanitary importance. Measures are taken against non-European populations, however, because of the risk of exotic geminiviruses.
