We’ve selected a few of the latest new geographic, host and species records for plant pests and diseases from CAB Abstracts. Records this fortnight include a report of 5 broad-nosed weevil species damaging soybean in Brazil, the first report of Meloidogyne incognita infecting corn in western Spain and the detection and monitoring of spinosad resistance in thrips.
