Abstract

Xyleborus volvulus is a polyphagous beetle that can carry Raffaelea lauricola, a phytopathogenic fungus that causes laurel wilt disease. In Mexico, the insect has been associated with damage to cedar, cacao, and avocado plantations. Here, we report mango trees infested by X. volvulus in a mango orchard with a history of having avocado trees were removed due to infestation by X. volvulus.
