Notes

Added by Malumphy (2015), EPPO (2015). This highly invasive, East Asian species has spread across Europe and has recently been reported from Kent and Hertfordshire. As the UK has Protected Zone Status for this global pest, apparently successful attempts were made to eradicate D. kuriphilus  at the two outbreak sites and it should not be formally added to the British list at this stage.
