status

 

Filippia follicularis (Targioni Tozzetti, 1867)  

This species was correctly recorded by Borg (1919). Borg’s (1932) record of Philippia oleae   (Costa) was a misidentification and should refer to Filippia follicularis ( Ben-Dov et al., 2014)   . Borg (1932) stated that the species was found “here and there on the olive tree in both islands; more frequent at St. Julian’s, Sliema and San Anton Gardens”. No Maltese specimens have been seen during the present work.
