Drosophila suzukii (Matsumura), or spotted wing drosophila, is a temperate to subtropical species of vinegar or pomace fly native to Southeast Asia. It is an emerging invasive pest that is currently undergoing a rapid range expansion in North America and Europe. The purpose of this report is to assess the risks associated with Drosophila suzukii entering New Zealand via fresh produce imports from the United States of America. The affected pathways include the existing trade in apricots, cherries, peaches, plums (and their interspecific hybrids, such as pluots and plumcots), nectarines, strawberries and table grapes.
