Although T. absoluta has been found in Japan attacking Solanum lyratum, it was a localized occurrence (Clarke, 1962). This moth is native to Peru and probably it is widespread in all countries in South America.

There are specimens of T. absoluta from Distrito Federal, Goias, Brazil in the collection of the Natural History Museum (London, UK).

T. absoluta has been confirmed as present in Kenya through surveillance surveys conducted by the NPPO-KEPHIS and the research organisations ICIPE and KARI (Preliminary Report, IPPC, 2014b). T. absoluta has also been detected in South Africa, near the border with Mozambique (Preliminary report, IPPC, 2016c), Mozambique (IPPC, 2017) and Botswana (Tebele, 2017).

Further information may be found on the Tuta absoluta Information Network (www.tutaabsoluta.com).
