Lecanosticta acicola(SCIRAC)

Distribution details in Serbia

Situation
Current pest situation evaluated by EPPO on the basis of information dated 1997: Absent, unreliable record
From CABI Disease map 482 (1994): Present, no details
Comments
EPPO Reporting Service (97/149): with the publication of more details on the outbreak of M. dearnessii in Croatia (exclusively in Dalmatia, on Pinus halepensis), it seems clear that the earlier record for former Yugoslavia must have referred only to Croatia. So any record in present-day Yugoslavia should be regarded as doubtful.
