    Description

    The Asian longhorned beetle (ALB), Anoplophora glabripennis (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae), is an exotic pest of Asian origin, first discovered in North America (Brooklyn, NY) in 1996. That infestation has now spread to Queens, Manhattan and Long Island, NY and Jersey City, NJ. Based on DNA profiles (Carter et al. 2005) and other evidence, independent introductions have occurred in the Chicago area (discovered in 1998), Toronto, Ontario (2003) and Carteret, NJ (2004). The introductions at each site have displayed similar characteristics: a colonization event occurring near an importer of goods from Asia, several years of undetected increase and localized spread, the appearance of satellite infestations at distances ranging from a few hundred meters to 40 km from the point of establishment, and a spatial distribution that is patchy (clumped or aggregated) and self-similar on all spatial scales.
