status

 

Pinnaspis aspidistrae (Signoret, 1869)  

Recorded by Borg (1932) (as Hemichionaspis aspidistrae   ), as frequently found on Aspidistra elatior   . Aspidistra   and Ophiopogon   are favoured hosts. No material of this polyphagous species has been collected during this study and the possibility that it has died out of the Maltese Archipelago is not excluded.
