Ampelophagous species feeding exclusively on grapevines - Viteus vitifoliae, Scaphoideus titanus; species feeding exclusively on palms - Rhynchophorus ferrugineus, Diocalandra frumentii; monophagous leaf-miners and gall-producers - Parectopa robiniella, Phyllonorycter robiniella, Dryocosmus kuriphilus) and therefore directly related to these vectors. g. scales and aphids) and xylophagous bark- and woodinfesting insects, above all beetle larvae, feeding in living trees. One of the best known examples is the Citrus longhorned beetle Anoplophora chinensis, which has repeatedly been reported infesting Bonsais imported from China.

965) B Detail per feeding regime. total arthropods newly arriving per year in Europe appear to be strongly dependent on the increasing arrival of phytophagous species, especially during the last ten years. In contrast, the number of detritivores and parasitoids/ predators has appeared to decrease during this last decade, and contributed much less to the overall increase, whereas these three feeding guilds had contributed more or less equally during the first half of the 20th century. After the period 1950- 2000 when alien parasitoids and predators markedly increased probably in relation with the wave of releases of biological control agents, the explosion of ornamental trade since the 1990s is likely to have triggered the arrival of alien phytophagous arthropods, as has been shown for insects related to woody plants (Roques 2010).
