Trogoderma granarium(TROGGA)

Distribution details in Thailand

Current pest situation evaluated by EPPO on the basis of information dated 1999: Absent, unreliable record
The source of the doubtful record is the PNKTO data sheet of USDA. This quotes Banks (1977) who includes Thailand in a table under the heading "Areas where some authors say that T. granarium exists but others deny it". Swaine & Mutter (1961) indicate that the pest is present, while Reddy (1969) says it is absent.

There are no more recent records. The NPPO of Thailand considers the pest to be absent.
