General cargo vessel AAL Brisbane on arrival to Wellington, NZ, on Nov 18 2012, was found to be infested with plague soldier beetle Chauliognathus lugubris, a native of south-western and south-eastern Australia named for its habit of forming huge mating swarms and with potential to be harmful to New Zealand insects, or carry diseases and other pests. The AAL Brisbane, which arrived in Wellington to pick up a cargo of logs, was targeted for a full inspection on arrival by the Ministry for Primary Industries after a recent spate of live beetle finds on vessels arriving from Melbourne, the ministry said in a statement. Vessel left Wellington on Nov 20 and on Nov 22 arrived to Tauranga. As of morning Nov 23 vessel was docked in Tauranga. Maritime Bulletin http://www.odin.tc
