PRA report for Epitrix species damaging potato tubers

Description

It should be noted that in 2015, the species present in Portugal and initially identified as Epitrix similaris was later described as a new species, named named Epitrix papa1 . Because the PRA was based on information available from Portugal at that time, the evaluation made for E. similaris is valid for E. papa. The EPPO Working Party in June 2016 agreed that Epitrix similaris should no longer be recommended for regulation as a quarantine pest, and that Epitrix papa should be listed as an A2 pest, based on the information available in this PRA.
