EPPO Reporting Service (2015/035) : originally reported from the states of Atlantico, Cesar, Guajira and Magdalena in 2008, but studies of specimens in collections have indicated that it was probably introduced in 2003. The mealybug was also found on Old Providence Island in 2010 and the island of San Andrea in 2012. It has been introduced on these islands via imports of infested ornamental plants from continental Colombia.
