Abstract

Between 2014 and mid-2017, over 1300 lantana bud mite-filled galls were released at 70 sites in northern Queensland, encompassing the area from Mackay north to Cairns. Aceria lantanae has been detected at only four release sites at Charters Towers, Tully, Kuranda and Clare. Additionally A. lantanae has spread across hundreds of kilometres, with the furthest distance detected from a known release site being approximately 50 kilometres.
