Pissodes nemorensis Germar - (eastern pine weevil
The weevil is an occasional pest of pine trees. It is native to North America and was reported from South Africa around 1940. However, using molecular studies Wondafrash et al. (2016) provided evidence that the South African form is a hybrid between P. nemorensis and Pissodes strobi.
The adults feed on and breed in the terminal shoots of Pinus species, in particular weakened, stressed or dying trees. They also breed in felled logs or in the trunk of trees killed by bark beetles.
