    Description

    A new threat to oaks in California was identified in June 2008 following years of misdiagnosis. The goldspotted oak borer (GSOB), Agrilus coxalis auroguttatus Schaeffer (Coleoptera: Buprestidae), is aggressively attacking and killing three species of oaks in San Diego County (Coleman and Seybold 2008a, b; Hespenheide and Bellamy 2009). About 20,000 coast live oaks, Quercus agrifolia, California black oaks, Q. kelloggii, and canyon live oaks, Q. chrysolepis, have died in a 4,903-km2 area centered near the Descanso Ranger District of the Cleveland National Forest and Cuyamaca Rancho State Park.
