The original population was detected in Terceira in early 1970's through Lajes, a North America Air Force Base. It has become one of the most important and destructive insect pest of agricultural and…

TLDR
It is demonstrated that soil microbes represent an important source of gut bacteria for P. japonica larvae, but as the insect develops, its gut microbiota richness and diversity decreased substantially, paralleled by changes in community composition.
