Abstract: The nesting whitefly, Paraleyrodes minei is the latest exotic whitefly species to be found breeding in Malta and was originally described from specimens collected from Citrus crops in Syria by Iaccario (1990). It is the only member of the subfamily Aleurodicinae that has been found in Malta, all the other species belong to the subfamily Aleyrodinae. Its arrival had been anticipated since it was spreading rapidly in Sicily (Italy), an island only 50 nautical miles to the North
