Bark beetles and pinhole borers (Curculionidae, Scolytinae, Platypodinae) alien to Europe
TLDR
A review of the alien bark beetle fauna of Europe based on primary literature through 2009 finds that there are 18 Scolytinae and one Platypodinae species apparently established in Europe, from 14 different genera, and argues that Trypodendron laeve, commonly considered alien in Europe; conversely, it is hypothesize that Xyleborus pfeilii, which has always been treated as indigenous, is an alien species from Asia.
