General Comments

Longhorn beetle affecting mainly oak species in North-East Asia, with the potential to be introduced to the UK via wood packaging material or by hitchhiking. Risks to be highlighted with EPPO, initially for inclusion on their Alert List, as a precursor to considering a Europe-wide PRA. Distribution to be monitored in China and beyond through a sentinel trees project.
