Ceroplastes destructor(CERPDE)

Distribution details in Colombia

Current pest situation evaluated by EPPO on the basis of information dated 1999: Absent, invalid record
Record from FAO/RLAC Plant Quarantine Action Programme's document PROVEG-21 "Plant Pests of Quarantine Importance to the Caribbean". The source for this is Le Pelley RH (1968) Pests of Coffee (Longmans, London).

According to the latest expert opinion (1999), C. destructor does not occur in any American country, so this record is presumably mistaken.
