EPPO Reporting Service (2019/226) : Nine adult individuals of Bactrocera dorsalis sensu lato (Diptera: Tephritidae – EPPO A1 List), were trapped at 4 sites in Vienna, between 2012 and 2018. All findings were in urban areas in Vienna. It is considered that the findings in Vienna are linked to repeated entries of larvae in infested fruit and not to an outbreak.
