General Comments

A leaf beetle predominantly affecting members of the Amaranthaceae family and some common agricultural weed species in the UK. Unlikely to present a significant threat to agricultural crops in the UK, although there could be impacts for environmentally sensitive habitats such as salt marshes. It will be kept under review in light of developments in Europe where it is known to be present.
