Parthenolecanium corni (Bouché, 1844)


Parthenolecanium corni (Bouché, 1844)  

Borg (1919) recorded this species as Lecanium corni   and stated that it might be considered as one of the rarer species. Borg (1932) recorded it as Eulecanium corni   and said that it was “an uncommon species occasionally met with on the Peach, Maclura aurantiaca, Rose   and other non-specified host plants”. No Maltese specimens have been seen during the present work.
