Comments
Although it has been suggested that records from Sri Lanka are not true B. dorsalis, but another species associated with mango, CABI map 109, based on Drew & Hancock (1994), indicates that true B. dorsalis does occur in Sri Lanka, together with two related species, B. caryeae and B. kandiensis, with which it may have been or still be confused.

EPPO Reporting Service (2005/085) : B. invadens has been found in a collection of Dacini trapped during earlier surveys, so there was no indication of host plants or associated damage.
