Anoplophora chinensis - Citrus long-horned beetle
The beetle gets its name from the damage caused to citrus groves in its native China. However, it feeds on and damages a wide variety of hardwood trees, including many important species found in Canada.
This beetle has been intercepted once entering Canada. However, it has never been found in this country.
The citrus long-horned beetle has been introduced on several occasions into Europe, and has been detected in and subsequently eradicated from the United States.
