Pest Risk Analysis - Cnidocampa flavescens

This document is a Pest Risk Analysis report (PRA) on Cnidocampa flavescens. The reason for doing this PRA is that 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 forthe Netherlands. However, a more extended pest risk assessment was needed to study the level ofrisk in more detail.
