Notes on distribution and hosts of Hylesinus mexicanus (wood) (Coleoptera: Curculionidae: Scolytinae), a pest on Olea europaea Linnaeus.

Abstract

Significant new host and distribution records are presented for Hylesinus mexicanus (Wood) (Coleoptera: Curculionidae: Scolytinae), including its pest potential on cultivated olives. Hylesinus mexicanus is similar to H. fasciatus LeConte and information presented here suggests that the distinctiveness of these two species needs to be re-examined.
