A series of adult and larval ambrosia beetles were collected boring into twigs of coffee at a single site in a major coffee growing area. One of the adults was identified as X. compactus, the remainder were identified as X. morigerus (Blandford). Delineating surveys are yet to be conducted to determine the full extent of the infestation.

Xylosandrus morigerus (Blandford) is a pest of a wide range of crop plants. Infestations are generally confined to stems, roots and seedlings so the trade in coffee beans is unlikely to be affected by the presence of this pest.
