status

 

Lepidosaphes flava (Signoret, 1870)  

Recorded by Borg (1919), but this record was not used in subsequent publications pertaining to scale insect studies from Malta except by Borg (1932), incorrectly, as a synonym of L. pinnaeformis   . L. flava   has not been collected during this study either, so it is here excluded from the Maltese fauna.
