FABI Articles : Eucalyptus leaf beetle Paropsisterna selmani (Chrysomelidae: Paropsini)

Eucalyptus leaf beetle Paropsisterna selmani (Chrysomelidae: Paropsini)

Attached a paper forwarded by Prof Bernard Slippers describing a new Eucalyptus leaf pest in Ireland. This beetle is not yet in Africa, but we need to keep our eyes open. Please visit the following link for colour photographs of the beetle.

If this introduced Eucalyptus pest in Ireland follows the same trend as other Eucalyptus pests, it might start moving around the world soon. Something to look out for.
