    Location Notes:
    Reduction in native biodiversity: Despite its abundance and wide distribution D. valens has not generally produced extensive or severe outbreaks in North America (Smith 1971, Cibrian-Tovar et al. 1995, in Liu et al. 2006). However, recently it has been causing moderate mortality among ponderosa pines in a thinned, subsoiled plantation near Pondosa (California, USA) and Mexico (Britton and Sun 2001, Rappaport et al. 2001, in Liu et al. 2006).
