Pest Risk Analysis - Cnidocampa flavescens


During a number of years, the Plant Protection Service intercepted Cnidocampa flavescens several times in consignments Acer and Zelkova plants originating from Asian countries. A preliminary (short) risk assessment indicated that this oriental moth was a potentially harmful organism for the Netherlands. However, a more extended pest risk assessment was needed to study the level of risk in more detail.
