Abstract: In 'A Guide to the Birds of Malta' (1975) the authors (Sultana, Gauci & Beaman) put the Barbary Falcon Falco pelegrinoides, which following Vaurie, was treated as a species, in Appendix I - Rejected Species - as it was felt that its inclusion in the list of the birds of Malta required proper confirmation (see page 153). Due to the confused nomenclature at that time of the Falco peregrinus brookei the authors stated that the 2 examples of Falco barbarus (= Falco pelegrinoides) listed as occurring in Malta in 1850 and 1885 by E.H. Giglioli (Avifauna Italica - 1907) could have been the brookei subspecies of the Peregrine.
