Quick scan Cacopaurus pestis


This Quickscan was prompted by the finding of the nematode species Cacopaurus pestis on roots of Ilex aquifolium in the Netherlands. As far as we know this concerns the first finding of the species in the Netherlands. The species was already known to be present in other EU member states (Spain, France and Italy). The species is not under official control in the EU.
