Pest categorisation of the Gonipterus scutellatus species complex

Abstract: The Panel on Plant health performed a pest categorisation of the Australian Eucalyptus snout-beetle Gonipterus scutellatus (Coleoptera: Curculionidae), for the EU. G. scutellatus should be referred as the G. scutellatus species complex because it includes several cryptic species. A complete nomenclature of the species present in the EU is still pending. It is a quarantine pest listed in Annex IIB of Council Directive 2000/29/EC. Protected zones are in place in Greece and Portugal (Azores). In the EU, it has be… Show more

“…Gonipterus platensis Marelli (Coleoptera: Curculionidae), a native of Australia, has been accidentally introduced in other parts of the world where it became a serious pest of eucalyptus [27,28,29]. Based on morphological and molecular data, G. platensis is now recognized as a part of a cryptic species complex known as Gonipterus scutellatus Gyllenhal [28].…”

“…Based on morphological and molecular data, G. platensis is now recognized as a part of a cryptic species complex known as Gonipterus scutellatus Gyllenhal [28]. Gonipterus scutellatus species complex invaded countries, including France, Portugal, Italy, and Spain, and is categorized as a quarantine pest listed in Annex IIB of Council Directive 2000/29/EC [27]. As the major eucalyptus pest, it causes significant damage to eucalyptus trees around the world.…”

“…This beetle was reported in New Zealand in 1890 and causes crop damage in South America, southwestern North America (California), the Iberian Peninsula, the Canary Islands and Hawaii [1]. The attack severity and high dispersal capacity justify efforts to manage this pest [2]. Adults and, mainly, G. platensis larvae which feed exclusively on young eucalyptus leaves can damage this plant.…”

“…The Eucalyptus snout‐beetle Gonipterus platensis Gyllenhal (Coleoptera: Curculionidae), previously referred as G. scutellatus (see Mapondera, Burgess, Matsuki, & Oberprieler, ), native from Tasmania, is one of the most prominent defoliators of Eucalyptus plantations worldwide (Arzone, ; Cordero Rivera, Santolamazza Carbone, & Andrés, ; Hanks, Millar, Paine, & Campbell, ; Lanfranco & Dungey, ; Loch, ; Tooke, ). Currently, the weevil is present in four continents and twenty‐five countries, where eucalypts are cultivated for commercial and ornamental purposes (Jeger et al, ). Adults and larvae of G. platensis feed on leaves, buds and shoots, causing severe defoliation in susceptible trees, growth reduction and eventually killing branches (Tooke, ).…”
