I am a member of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s New Pest Advisory Group which assess exotic plant pests that are new or imminent threats to U.S. agriculture or the environment. (For more information, please visit our website:
http://www.aphis.usda.gov/plant_health/cphst/npag/index.shtml .
A coworker and I recently found your website and we have been very intrigued. We noticed the posting about the Ctenuchid fly and that it may be a new species record in the United States.
We would like to ask for your help. When you receive a potential new pest in the United States, could you send us an email to npag@aphis.usda.gov and let us know? I know it’s a lot to ask and that you are very busy, but we would greatly appreciate it.
Thank you in advance for your help.
