Abstract: The Sciomyzidae is a family of flies whose larvae are predatory on terrestrial and aquatic molluscs. There are 142 species known from the Western Palaearctic and the Mediterranean region. Pherbellia Robineau-Desvoidy is the genus with the highest number of species and P. cinerella (Fallen) is the commonest and most widespread species in the Palaearctic. It is here recorded for the first time from Malta and so far it is the only representative of the family locally. Identification was based on Knutson et al (1965).
