Clinocentrus excubitor (Haliday, 1836)


Clinocentrus excubitor (Haliday, 1836)  

Material examined: MALTA, Fawwara, limits of Għajn Tuffieħa, 29. iii.2006, 1 ♀, emerged from larva of Avaria hyerana (Milliére)   ( Lepidoptera   : Tortricidae   ), MZ, NMS [parasitoid identified by Mark Shaw but this is probably a species aggregate; host identified by Michael Zerafa].

Notes: New record for the Maltese Islands. This koinobiont endoparasitoid was previously reported as C. exsertor (Nees)   from Malta by Papp (2015), but re-examination of the material proved that to be a misidentification and it should be referred to C. excubitor   .
