Anophococcus formicicola (Newstead, 1897)  

Borg (1932) recorded this species (as Eriococcus formicola   [sic.]) as common on Cynodon dactylon   on both Malta and Gozo. Hoy (1963) and Kozár et al. (2013) included Malta in the distribution range of this species. No Maltese specimens have been seen during the present work.
