Abstract

Yponomeuta morbillosus (Zeller, 1877) is reported for the first time from Europe and the Maltese Islands. In Malta the Genus Yponomeuta Latreille, 1796 is represented by two species: Yponomeuta padella (Linnaeus, 1758) and Yponomeuta evonymella (Linnaeus, 1758). Distribution, habits of the adult and larval host plant are included. A Maltese name is proposed for this new record.
