Distribution details in New Zealand

Current pest situation evaluated by EPPO on the basis of information dated 2003: Absent, unreliable record
From CABI Pest map 244 (1997): Present, no details
Brockerhoff et al. (2003) consider that the record of X. compactus in New Zealand (given in Wood & Bright, 1992) is probably incorrect as there are no reports of breeding populations from New Zealand.
