Abstract: Breeding of Locusta migratoria cinerascens in the wild is reported for the first time in the Maltese Islands. This was established following the discovery of four late-instar nymphs from Aћrax tal-Mellieћa, which were collected and reared. One individual successfully attained maturity in captivity. The presence of this species in the Maltese Islands is discussed.
