Xiphinema californicum

Summary of the Express Pest Risk Analysis for Xiphinema californicum Lamberti and Bleve-Zacheo, 1979

PRA area:  Poland

Describe the endangered area: the entire PRA area

Main conclusions

Xiphinema californicum is a vector of three viruses (Tobacco ringspot virus, Tomato ringspot virus and Cherry rasp leaf virus). These plant viruses infect important cultivated species like: apple tree, maize, wheat.

Xiphinema californicum is polyphagous species such as others of Longidoridae family. List of host plants may therefore be longer. Potential risk of losses in crops is low becouse of climatic conditions (even despite high adaptive capacity of Xiphinema californicum) in PRA area at the moment. The pest may appear and cause serious crop losses in PRA area in case of climatic changes.

Rating of the likelihood of entry: Low

Pest may be transfer with soil.

Rating of the likelihood of establishment outdoors and in protected conditions: Low

Pest probably will not survive in PRA area, becouse of climatic conditions.

Rating of the likelihood of spread: Moderate

Only if pest will be able to survive under climatic conditions.

Rating of the likelihood of impact without phytosanitary measures: High

Only if pest will be able to survive under climatic conditions.

Potential risk or losses caused by this pest are low becouse of climatic conditions in PRA area at the moment. The assessment should be repeated in case of climatic changes.

Xylosandrus compactus

Summary of the Express Pest Risk Analysis for Xylosandrus compactus (Eichhoff)

PRA area: Poland

Describe the endangered area: Palm Houses and greenhouses

Main conclusions

Xylosandrus compactus causes serious economic losses in crops in its native and new distributional range. Considering that it is a tropical species, it is not expected that pest will be able to survive in Poland. Therefore, potential impact of pest in PRA area should be lower then in its native range. The spread and population size will be limited by climatic conditions. The most of host plants are not present in Poland. Probably, there is a risk that pest may attack new local plant species.

Chemical phytosanitary measures are commonly used and the efficiency of them is on high level (more then 90%). Infected plants need to be destroy but this method is more labour-intensive and less efficient.

It is necessary to set the conditions at which pest can not survive (especially the temperature range). This knowledge will be used to choose the best eradication method.

Zaprionus indianus

Summary of the Express Pest Risk Analysis for Zaprionus indianus

PRA area: Poland

Describe the endangered area:  fruit crops in protected conditions and orchards

Main conclusions

Zaprionus indianus is a species of small fruit fly. Larvae feed principally on decomposing fruits. It is not considered to attack unripe and undamaged fruit. The most likely way of entry is transmission with imported fruits.

Considering that Z. indianus is a tropical species, it is not expected that it will be able to survive and establish of permanent populations (the ephemeral populations are possible during the warmer, milder months) in PRA area.

Phytosanitary measures should be based on monitoring of Zaprionus indianus larvae occurrence in imported fruits, especially in warmer months and from pest native ranges.

Infected fruits should be destroyed for example by burning.
