Abstract: Two species of acridids, Schistocerca gregaria Forsk. and Locusta migratoria L., were recorded from the Maltese Islands during April-June 1988. These records were the result of stragglers reaching Maltese shores from the major outbreak areas in North Africa. The correlation of these occurrences with prevailing meteorological conditions and with contemporary records from the European mainland is discussed. The 1987-88 outbreaks in North Africa are also reviewed.
