Abstract: The aphidofauna of the Maltese archipelago is currently composed of some one hundred recorded species (Mifsud & Pérez Hidalgo, 2011; Mifsud et al. 2011) of which only six species are associated with conifers. Of these, three species belong to the genus Cinara: C. maghrebica, C. palaestinensis (both recorded on Pinus halepensis) and C. cupressi (recorded on Cupressus sempervirens). Identification of a recently captured single alate viviparous female of Cinara, based on Binazzi & Scheurer (2009) and Nieto Nafría et al., (2003), proved to be Cinara (Cupressobium) tujafilina (del Guercio, 1909), a species not previously recorded from Malta.
