Description: In May 2004, a new exotic bark beetle for North America was discovered in baited flight traps in Fresno, California during an annual bark beetle and woodborer survey by the California Department of Food and Agriculture. This bark beetle was identified as Orthotomicus erosus (Wollaston), the Mediterranean pine engraver, a well-documented pest of pines in the Mediterranean region, the Middle East, Central Asia, and China. This beetle has been intercepted many times in the past at U.S. ports in association with solid wood packing material. Since the initial detection, the beetle has been found in flight traps in five counties in California's southern Central Valley.
