Abstract: Thirty-four species of Heteroptera were found from the Maltese islands during a sampling period of a week in April of 2009. Of these, seven represent new records for this territory and include the seed bugs Artheneis foveolata, Emblethis duplicatus, Engistus boops boops and Oxycarenus hyalinipennis and the plant bugs Megalodactylus macularubra, Mimocoris sp. and Phytocoris sp. The integration of the records from the last Catalogue of Maltese Heteroptera, the Catalogue of the Heteroptera of the Palaeartic Region and the present data raised the heteroptera known from the Maltese islands to 223 species accommodated in 161 genera and 26 families.
