Pulvinaria vitis (Linnaeus, 1758)  

Borg (1919; 1922a: 595) recorded this species as occasionally present in vineyards. Borg (1932) indicated the species was rare, occurring on grape vines at Għajn Żnuber, Għajn Tuffieħa and Baħrija. It was recorded again by Saliba (1963) as fairly common on vines, and by Vella (1991). No Maltese specimens have been seen during the present work.
