Distribution details in New Zealand
First recorded in: 1989
EPPO Reporting Service (2000/180) : after the first find in 1989 near Auckland, C. ulmi was also found in the Napier area. It has since been under control in both areas with the aim of eradication. The disease has not been found in the Napier area since 1997, and no new infested locations have been seen in the Auckland area in recent years. Good prospects for eradication in next few years.
