In 2011, the presence of Aromia bungii (Redneck longhorned beetle) was recorded for the first time in one location in Germany. Because A. bungii is a fruit tree pest originating from Asia which was previously not known to occur in the EPPO region, the NPPO of Germany and the EPPO Panel on Phytosanitary Measures suggested its addition to the EPPO Alert List.
