General Comments

A pest mainly of Prunus previously intercepted in the UK on wooden packaging imported from China. There have been longstanding outbreaks of the pest in Italy, a source of significant trade in plants for instant landscapes, and also findings in Germany. The UK will press for early EU regulation and consider UK national measures if risk increases.
