dc.description.abstractTrue bugs of the family Pyrrhocoridae, more commonly known as red bugs, cotton stainers or (in the case of Pyrrhocoris apterus) firebugs, are represented by 43 species from 13 genera in the Palaearctic (Aukema & Rieger, 2001). The Heteroptera of the Maltese Islands have been relatively well-studied, with 141 species recorded (Cuesta Segura et al., 2010; Carapezza & Mifsud, 2015; 2016). Of these, only one species belongs to the family Pyrrhocoridae - Scantius aegyptius aegyptius. However, specimens collected in summer of 2018 were confirmed to be Pyrrhocoris apterus, a new Pyrrhocorid record for Malta.en_GB
