Russellaspis pustulans (Cockerell, 1892)  

This species is not native to the Mediterranean basin. Stumpf & Lambdin (2006) said it had been reported from Malta, but gave no further details on the source of this information. Russellaspis pustulans   is present also in Cyprus, Egypt, Israel and Italy in the Mediterranean region ( Ben-Dov et al., 2014). No Maltese specimens have been seen during the present work.
