Abstract: In recent years, the aphid fauna of the Maltese Islands has received considerable attention. miFSud et al. (2011) reviewed earlier works on the subject and provided information on previously reported species and on several new records. An updated list of aphids provided therein included 98 Aphididae and a single species of Phylloxeridae. The only other family currently included with aphids, the Adelgidae was not represented in the list. Samples of young shoots of Pinus halepensis Mill. were observed infested with a whitish flocculent material in several localities in Malta and examination of this material proved it to belong to an adelgid which we report here under
