Pest Risk Analysis - Anoplophora chinensis

This document is a Pest Risk Analysis report on Anoplophora chinensis. This PRA was initiated following the finding of Anoplophora chinensis (an EU IAI listed pest) in growing plants in the Netherlands in December 2007. In addition, in August 2005 A. chinensis had been detected in the UK emerging from Acer palmatum that had been imported from China(Ningbo) in March 2005. The ongoing occurrence of A. chinensis in Italy also threatens the PlantHealth Status of the EU and so for these reasons an EU wide PRA is warranted.
