Summary of the Express Pest Risk Analysis for Cacoecimorpha pronubana (Hübner, 1799)


Cacoecimorpha pronubana is native South Europe (Mediterranean region) species. Import and transport of seedlings and cut flowers influence on pest occurence in new area. Monitoring of consignments is a basic phytosanitary measure. Rapid climate change may allow pest development and occurrence in west Poland. Potential losses in fields crops caused by C. pronubana seem to be quite small. Pest may establish also in greenhouses.

Cacoecimorpha pronubana is included in Council Directive 74/647/EEC - "On control of carnation leaf-rollers” from 9 December 1974.

To sum up, monitoring of plant material is a basic phytosanitary measure, especially of consignments from areas where pest occurs. Special chemical protection should be used in those regions (especially in places of production of ornamental plants, spices and herbs species in pots and cut flowers) Special chemical measure need to be also used in case of pest occurrence in greenhouses. The high risk of pest entry is associated with import of seedlings (not seed and propagation material like bulbs and rhizome).
