Comments
According to the Canadian NPPO, P. japonica occurred in the Halifax area in the 1940s, but was eradicated in the 1950s. Only isolated specimens have been found since then, and none recently. The listing in Bousquet (1991) refers only to the existence of specimens from the 1940s in the National Collection.

In 2001, according to NAPPO Newsletter Sep 2002, a population was found in and around Cornwallis Park, in Halifax (Nova Scotia). Several hundred individuals were trapped. Eradication programme sustained. EPPO Reporting Service (2003/018) confirms this.
