Abstract

The currently exotic leafminers species Liriomyza trifolii, L. sativae, L. huidobrensis, L. bryoniae, and Chromatomyia horticola are insects known to damage many vegetable species overseas and can cause economic damage to the vegetable industry if they enter and establish in Australia without any pest response plan in place.
The purpose of this pest-generic incursion management plan for the vegetable industry is to provide background information on the biology;
potential geographic distribution of the pest; likely damage caused to the industry; diagnostic tools; available control measures; sampling methods for use in survey procedures; and key experts to contact, to assist with the
preparedness for an incursion of these leafminers into Australia.
The report follows guidelines for the steps to be undertaken and considered when developing a Response Plan for this pest group. Any Response Plan developed using information in whole or in part from this Contingency Plan
must follow procedures as set out in PLANTPLAN and be endorsed by the National Management Group prior to implementation.
