Comments
I. duplicatus was listed as present in France by Wood and Bright 1992, but this is now considered erroneous. The French Plant Protection Service did not confirm its presence (1992) and information gathered by Piel et al. (2006) from different sources in France futher confirms absence.

DSF (2021) notes that surveillance in Jura and Vosges mountains did not detect the pest.
