A chronological account of records for A. solanicola is given in Table 2. Acizzia solanicola was first recorded from S. mauritianum at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Sydney in 1936. It was again collected at Sydney University in 1951, and at Macquarie Pass, about 100 km S of Sydney in 1956. The first record of this species from cultivated eggplant was at Mangrove Mountain, about 60 km N of Sydney in 2005, followed by a subsequent record retrieved from a sticky trap placed near cultivated eggplant at Virginia, 30 km N of Adelaide, South Australia in 2008 (1,200 km W Sydney) (Kent & Taylor 2010). It was collected regularly from S. mauritianum and cultivated S. melongena in the Sydney region during 2007 and 2008. In 2008, it was discovered at Bulahdelah, 180 km N of Sydney, and at Bilpin, 75 km E. In 2009, additional sites were recorded at Nabiac, 220 km N Sydney, Moorland (270 km N), Telegraph Point (310 km N), Kempsey (360 km N) and Glenreagh (450 km N). In late 2009, and early 2010 additional sites were recorded at Stanwell Park (40 km S Sydney), Kiama (100 km S); and the distribution extended to Tomakin (240 km S), Bodalla (270 km S) and Narooma (280 km S). All new records were collected from S. mauritianum .

In early 2012, it was discovered on S. mauritianum near Auckland in New Zealand (2,200 km E Sydney), and in November 2012 a population was discovered on a native Australian host, S. petrophilum on Hiltaba Station, Gawler Ranges, South Australia. Its current range extends from Narooma to Glenreagh comprising 750 km of coastal and subcoastal New South Wales, to a single known population on Hiltaba Station in semi-arid central South Australia, and with restricted localities near Adelaide, SA and Auckland, NZ. The Australian distribution of A. solanicola and its hosts are presented in Figs 12–13 View FIGURES 12 – 14 .
