Distribution details in Czech Republic

Current pest situation evaluated by EPPO on the basis of information dated 2013: Present, restricted distribution
First recorded in: 1999
From CABI Disease map 419 (1997): Absent, pest no longer present
From NPPO: Present, restricted distribution
The database previously indicated that there was an earlier record, but that the pest was no longer found. The source of this record has not been traced. The NPPO later indicated a first report in 1999 (see below). In the literature, several authors consider that since 2000, it has become an important disease of pines (in particular on Pinus nigra).

EPPO Reporting Service (2001/144) : found in a nursery on Pinus nigra ssp. austriaca in 1999, and on field-grown trees in 2000. Survey led to further records on other Pinus spp.

------- High diversity may suggest either a long presence in Northern Europe, or a recent introduction as a massive inoculum from an unknown direction.
