Microstegium vimineum(MCGVI)

Distribution details in Congo

Current pest situation evaluated by EPPO on the basis of information dated 1929: Absent, unreliable record
A herbarium specimen in the Kew Royal Botanic Gardens dated 1929 indicates that Scaetta found Microstegium vimineum in the Democratic Republic of Congo, in the Kivu Province.
No later information had been recorded for the specis in this country, this occurence is therefore considered unreliable in the absence of further and earlier data.
