Pest Risk Analysis Stathmopoda auriferella
The Dutch Plant Protection Service intercepted a single moth of Stathmopoda auriferella on a Melodorum fruticosum plant imported from Thailand in August 2009. S. auriferella is not a regulated pest in the EU but is regulated in the USA, New Zealand and Australia (APHIS, 2004; Biosecurity New Zealand, 2005; Biosecurity Australia, 2009). This short PRA was conducted to assess the potential impact of S. auriferella for the Netherlands. The impact of S. auriferella has been assessed for Australia in a Import Risk Analysis (Biosecurity Australia, 2009) and information from that PRA is used in the present PRA.
