Chionaspis furfura (Fitch, 1857)


Chionaspis furfura (Fitch, 1857)  

Recorded by Borg (1919), but the record was not used in subsequent publications pertaining to scale insect studies from Malta except by Borg (1932), incorrectly, as a synonym of C. salicis   . C. furfura   is therefore here excluded from the Maltese fauna.
