Abstract

State of the invasion of Trichoferus campestris (Faldermann, 1835) internationally and reflection on its first interception in Belgium.

Abstract

Several interceptions or new reports of a cerambycid of Asian origin, Trichoferus campestris (Faldermann, 1835), have been made very recently in Europe, particularly in France and for the first time in Belgium. The establishment of this invasive species has already been observed in several European countries as well as in Canada and the United States. A summary of geographical, biological and behavioral information, as well as a list of host plants of T. campestris, are given. The context of its interception in Belgium is exposed and discussed more widely.
