Comments
Reporting Service 520/17 of 1992-02: intercepted in "kiln-dried" conifer wood from CA.

There were published records of B. xylophilus in France, Baujard et al. (1979) and de Guiran (1990) , but these were misidentifications of B. mucronatus.

From the NPPO: annual surveys have been conducted since 2000, and B. xylophilus has never been detected (only on imported consignments from infested countries).
