thank you for your interesting message. This is the second record I here from Nederland. Tymo Muus, Beetsterzwaag, has already informed me, that this species was found there. In my opinion it’s only a matter of time, that perspectalis will spread out in Germany and just so in The Netherlands. I fear, we cannot stop it’s spread, and we have to accept this box-tree-pest in Europe, a species with an enormous reproductive potential. Let’s wait and see.
I have tried to breed it, but without success. I have now contacted somebody in Japan and hope to get information about breeding. This will take some time, but the next possibility for that is not before may next year.
