Indentification des facteurs sous-tendant l'invasion fulgurante d'un insecte asiatique en Europe, la pyrale du buis : approche génétique et biologique
Depuis les annees 1990, on observe une acceleration de la vitesse de propagation apres etablissementd’une grande partie des insectes introduits accidentellement en Europe. L’invasion fulgurante de…
Phylogeny and nomenclature of the box tree moth, Cydalima perspectalis (Walker, 1859) comb. n., which was recently introduced into Europe (Lepidoptera: Pyraloidea: Crambidae: Spilomelinae)
The morphology of the above mentioned and some additional spilomeline taxa was investigated and their phylogeny analysed and the results show that C. perspec- talis belongs to a monophylum that includes three of the genera in which it was previously placed: Glyphodes, Diaphania and Pal- pita.
Predicting the potential distribution and forest impact of the invasive species Cydalima perspectalis in Europe
- Geography, MedicineEcology and evolution
This work studied the distribution and severe defoliation processes of the box tree moth (Cydalima perspectalis W.), a tree defoliator insect native to Asia and invasive in Europe since 2007, through the combination of species distribution models based on climate and landscape composition information.
The potential of entomopathogenic nematodes to control moth pests of ornamental plantings
- Biological Control
Zoophagous entomofauna and entomopathogenic agents reported on Cydalima perspectalis (Walker, 1859) in north-western of Romania
During the monitoring period of the zoophagous entomofauna and the entomopathogenic microorganisms, affected the pupae in a percentage of 20.1% in Gherla, 21.8% in Dej, 34.7% in Cluj-Napoca, contributing to the diminution of the population of the harmful species.
Occurrence of invasive insects on woody plants in the main green areas from Bucharest city
In the current context of globalization, biological invasion of alien species has an important impact on environment, economics or human health. Particularly, the spread of these species in urban…
Prospects of using entomophagans to regulate the number of boxwood moth Cydalima perspectalis (Walker, 1859) under the conditions of the Southern coast of the Crimea
A complex invasion story underlies the fast spread of the invasive box tree moth (Cydalima perspectalis) across Europe
- BiologyJournal of Pest Science
Moth genetic diversity in Asia compared to the one observed in the invaded Europe and Asia Minor suggested that the invasive populations probably originated from eastern China, and the high genetic diversity coupled with the spatial genetic structure in the invade range suggested the occurrence of several introduction events.
Development of a Female-Targeted Lure for the Box Tree Moth Cydalima perspectalis (Lepidoptera: Crambidae): a Preliminary Report
- Medicine, BiologyJournal of Chemical Ecology
The first attractive blend was discovered, which was able to attract both adult male and female C. perspectalis in field conditions, and will yield a good basis for the optimization and development of a practically usable bisexual lure against this invasive pest.
First records of the pest species Cydalima perspectalis (Walker, 1859) and Paysandisia archon (Burmeister, 1880) in Gibraltar (Lepidoptera: Crambidae & Castniidae)
Paysandisia archon is damaging Chamaerops humilis Rebel, in the urban environment, and naive populaions of this palm are at risk and possible damage to naive species of plants is reported.
