Further Development of Risk Management for the EC listed Anoplophora species, A. chinensis and A. glabripennis (ANOPLORISK-II)

Hoch, Gernot; Schröder, Thomas; Weaver, Robert

There is a high threat of harmful impact arising from material infested by Anoplophora chinensis (Citrus longhorned beetle; CLB) and Anoplophora glabripennis (Asian longhorned beetle; ALB) within EU territory. While interceptions of CLB with plants for plantings have been reduced in the last years due to recommended measures according to the implementing decision 2012/138/EU of the EU Commission, ALB is intercepted in wood packaging material in continuously high numbers. Measures against these species require import inspections as well as eradication or containment measures demanding high personnel and financial resources. More readily available and validated detection methods are important. This project followed up promising methods for detection and identification that were developed in the previous project ANOPLORISK. In order to connect proper usage of available methods with measures required according to EU legislation, contingency plans for both, ALB and CLB were developed for Germany that could serve as models for other European countries. The EUphresco project will focus on:

- Detection methods for wood boring stages

- Detection of adult ALB with pheromone baited traps

- Molecular tools for diagnosis

- Development of contingency plans
