Краткое описание

MLGM has been confirmed in wild mango trees on the northern tip of Cape York Peninsula in far north Queensland. It is a small gall-forming insect that only affects mangoes. To date the midge has only been observed damaging the leaves of mango. It does not appear to be infesting fruit at this stage and poses no risk to human health. MLGM originated from islands to the north of Australia and most likely spread to the Torres Strait and Cape York Peninsula on wind currents. The Cape York finding follows the detection of the pest on eight islands in the Torres Strait since July 2006. The latest detection is approximately 1000 km from the nearest mango production area in Queensland. Under Queensland legislation, the movement of mango plants and fruit from the affected area is prohibited without an inspector"s approval. Mango plant movement between quarantine zones in the Torres Strait is also restricted under Australian Government law.

National decision reached that mango leaf gall midge (MLGM) is established in Australia and no further action will be taken
