Dimargarodes mediterraneus (Silvestri, 1908) 

Borg (1932) recorded this species (as Margarodes mediterraneus Silvestri  ) as being “frequent on the rhizomes of couch-grass ( Cynodon dactylon  ) in many localities in Malta and probably also in Gozo ”. No Maltese specimens have been seen during the present work.
