Comments
Although it has been suggested that true B. dorsalis is confined to the northern part of India, CABI map 109, based on Drew & Hancock (1994), gives records of true B. dorsalis from southern India (Maharashtra and Tamil Nadu). Records from commercial fruits in southern India may also be B. caryeae which is recorded from guava, mango and citrus.

According to Kapoor (2005/2006), 5 species of the B. dorsalis complex are present in India: B. caryeae, B. poonensis, B. dorsalis, B. carambolae, and B. vishnu (B. occipitalis is still doubtful and B. kandiensis occurs in Sri Lanka and is believed to be present in Southern India).

EPPO Reporting Service (2007/216) : B. invadens was detected for the first time during surveys conducted from May to August 2005 in the South of India.

EPPO Reporting Service (2020/067) : on quince
