Cameraria ohridella: the first record in Central Asia.

Abstract

Data on the formation of the invasive range of Cameraria ohridella in Russia and data on the first record of this invasive phytophage of the horse chestnut in Kazakhstan are given. For the first time, this pest was found in the horse chestnut landscaping planting in Almaty in 2014. It is supposed that, in Central Asia, Cameraria ohridella forms an insular range, which is isolated from its European range by the areas of Siberia and Western and Northern Kazakhstan where the horse chestnut does not grow.
