Situation
Current pest situation evaluated by EPPO on the basis of information dated 2018: Present, no details
Comments
EPPO (1992): The source of the record in EPPO datasheet (1992) (nominally FAO) is quite uncertain, although it was unfortunately included in Distribution Maps of Quarantine Pests for Europe. It should be considered erroneous, though it is not implausible that the bacterium should occur in Argentina.

Since then, it was detected in tomato, and tobacco.
Moko disease on banana is absent (2021).
