NAME OF THE ORGANISM: Thysanoptera (1THYSO)
GENERAL INFORMATION ON THE PEST
Name as submitted in the project specification (if different to the preferred name):
1- Identity of the pest/Level of taxonomic listing:
Is the organism clearly a single taxonomic entity and can it be adequately distinguished from other entities of the same rank?
Is the pest defined at the species level or lower?:
Can listing of the pest at a taxonomic level higher than species be supported by scientific reasons or can species be identified within the taxonomic rank which are the (main) pests of concern?
- No: Ornamental sector
Is it justified that the pest is listed at a taxonomic rank below species level?
- Not candidate: Ornamental sector
Justification (if necessary):
When replying to the RNQP Questionnaire, for the Vegetable reproductive and planting material (excluding seeds) Sector, as well as for the 'Ornamental Sector', no EU Member State identified this entry as important and justified to keep Thysanoptera listed at a higher level than the species level. No EU Member State proposed to replace this entry by pests listed at the species level.
HOST PLANT N°1: Begonia x hiemalis (BEGEH) for the Ornamental sector.
Origin of the listing:
Commission Directive 93/49/EEC
Plants for planting:
Plants intended for planting
CONCLUSION ON THE STATUS:
Disqualified: No EU Member State considered this entry as important in the answers to the RNQP Questionnaire and gave justification(s) for a listing at a higher level than the species level. This entry will be covered by the 'Substantially free from' requirement that will remain in the Ornamental EU Marketing Directives.
