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 papaya mealy bug, Paracoccus marginatus in mulberry in West Bengal, the natural mortality of Tuta absoluta eggs in Argentina and Italy with the first record of Encarsia porteri affecting its populations and the first report of spotted wing drosophila, Drosophila suzukii in Kansas.
