Current pest situation evaluated by EPPO on the basis of information dated
1967: Absent, pest no longer present
From CABI Pest map 054 (1998): Absent, unreliable record
Doubtful record at the very tip of northern Queensland, mentioned in earlier version of CABI map, has disappeared in the latest (1998). More recent publications have indicated that there are now no signs of the pest in this area, so it has disappeared (if it was ever there in the first place).
