The NPPO of Israel has been informed by Dr Yair Ben-Dov that the record by Nakahara (1982) was based on an erroneous quarantine report. An unknown passenger on an Israeli passenger plane carrying an infested fruit was quarantined at the USA, but the fruit most likely came from another Mediterranean country. This species has not been collected in Israel until this date (2011).
