Parasaissetia nigra (Nietner, 1861)


Parasaissetia nigra (Nietner, 1861) 

This species was listed as being present in Malta by Pellizzari & Germain (2010) in error (G. Pellizzari (University of Padova, Italy) and J-F. Germain (Laboratoire National de la Protection des Végétaux, Station de Montpellier, France), pers. comm.). The species is regulated in the European Union but has never been collected in the archipelago.
