Aclerda berlesii Buffa, 1897  

Borg (1932) recorded this species as very common in both Malta and Gozo. Malta was also included in its distribution range by Borchsenius (1960). The record of Asphodelococcus berlesii Buffa   ( Pseudococcidae   ) for Malta in Danzig & Watson (2014) is an erroneous combination and refers to this aclerdid species.

Material examined: MALTA, Valletta, x.1919, 2 ♀♀ on Arundo donax, PB (BMNH)   ; Għajn Riħana, 17.v.2012, 6 ♀♀ on A. donax, AR, DM & GM   ; Qawra, 15.ii.2012, 4 ♀♀ on A. donax, CM     ; Floriana, St. Philip’s Garden , 18.ii.2012, 2 ♀♀ on A. donax, CM     .
