    Description: I have to thank Dr. H. C. Blöte of the Leiden Museum of Natural History for his kindness to entrust me with a number of Carabidae from Indonesia for identification. A few species appear to be new to science; the descriptions follow below. One genus, Horniulus Jedl., is new to the whole of the Malay Archipelago, and another, Bembidion Latr., is new to Sumatra. Of the latter genus there are already a couple of species known from Java. I am much obliged to Mr. E. B. Britton of the British Museum, who carefully compared a few species with specimens in the collections of the British Museum and in Andrewes' collections. The type specimens are in the Leiden Museum. Oxygnathopsis gen. nov. (fig. 1 f) (Andrewes (1938, p. 196) described Oxygnathus javanus upon a single specimen from Java. With regard to the proper genus Andrewes was not absolutely sure because of a number of important differences, but before introducing a new genus he preferred to wait till more material was available. In the sending of the Leiden Museum I found a second specimen, which shows the same characteristics as the specimen described by Andrewes, so that in my opinion a new genus is desirable. The two genera are to be distinguished as follows: 1 (2) Head with the clypeus bisetose, two setae on each side over the eyes, facial carinae and sulci present; prothorax with two lateral setae on each side. Range: Assam and Burma.........Oxygnathus Dej. 2 (1) Clypeus without setae, one supra-orbital seta, the front seta is wanting, no facial Fig. 1. a, Coptodera flavipes sp. n., left elytron; b, Horniulus quadrimaculatus sp. n.,

Toxopeus of Bandung, Java, sent me a specimen of Nyctalemon for identification, but neither with the help of our collection, nor with the current literature did I succeed in ascertaining the correct name of this insect. On the contrary it appeared that, though the described forms of this genus clearly were of different value, viz., partly good species, partly geographical subspecies representing these species in restricted areas, no satisfactory division of the genus into species and subspecies had been given. Thus, Seitz' classification of the known forms into four species of which three are polytypic proved to make no sense. Therefore I resolved to study the genus more closely. In the ensuing correspondence Toxopeus gave me the benefit of his experience by providing references to relevant literature and quotations from

    Description: COPROMORPHIDAE Meyrick, 1905, Journ. Bombay Nat. Hist. Soc, vol. 16, p. 606. This small family represents a natural group with clearly marked characters, and is easy of descrimination. It inhabits tropical regions of Asia and extends through the Papuan region over the whole Pacific. The last mentioned region might be the country of origin of this group, as genera with peculiar and possibly archaic characters have been recorded from the Pacific Islands; some of those species are distinguished by an exceptionally large size. One of the interesting points with regard to the family is its possible place in the system. The long-ciliate or pectinate antennae, the neuration, and the complicated genital apparatus of the male seem to indicate an affinity with the Tineoidea. The general facies, however, is divergent to some extent, while the presence of a cubital pecten on the hind wings fundamentally discriminates this family from all the Tineoidea sensu stricto. When describing the family, Meyrick suggested that the cubital pecten might point towards an affinity with the Tortricoidea ; this relation, however, is not supported by any other characters. He further surmised that the Copromorphidae would be nearest allied to the Xyloryctidae ; in my opinion this surmise is devoid of any ground. Later Meyrick tried to combine with the Copromorphidae two other groups of "Tineina" that also are in possession of a cubital pecten, viz., the family Orneodidae, and the genus Hypertropha Meyr. The relation of the former with the Copromorphidae, however, is problematic, and deserves further proofs, while Hypertropha has in my opinion nothing in common with the family concerned, except for the

    Description: Some time ago I was asked to identify a fossil coleopteron which had been found in the drill cuttings of an oil well in the Southern part of Sumatra. As the fossil is only a few millimetres long it may be mentioned as an amazing fact that so small an object has been found during rather rough work like oil drilling. The details of the locality as given by Mr. A. Wright Jr. of the N.V. Standard-Vacuum Petroleum Maatschappij are as follows: "The well is one of our Kaja wells, a wildcat well located 3.3 kilometres N. 300 E. from the northeast edge of the Djirah oilfield. The drill cutting was obtained from a depth of 1930 feet subsea. Although, in drill cuttings, there is a certain measure of uncertainty as to the exact level of derivation, we have sufficient evidence to be sure that the fossil actually derives from this depth. The age is Tertiary-e; it occurs below beds of Baturadja stage age, but 200 feet above a lepidocyclina-bearing horizon. The fossil occurs in a shale interval of a formation which is generally non-fossiliferous; conditions were presumably marine, but either oligotrophe or toxic; the water at the time of deposition was shallow." The fossil is pyritized, dark bronze-greyish in colour. It is nearly free from substrate, though in some crevices a light grey, rather soft, somewhat fattish substance is found which can be taken away rather easily. The fossil was sent to the Rijksmuseum van Natuurlijke Historie at Leiden, mounted in a small box on a slide, pasted to the bottom with tragacanth. During the studies it was left in the small box, and kept in an exsiccator to preserve the fossil against deterioration by atmospheric influence.

    Description: I. Attacus dohertyi dammermani nov. subspec. (Plate II) Large, apex of fore wing moderately produced, general coloration of wings, head, notum including patagia, and abdomen rather light reddish brown, several intersegmental folds between the abdominal tergites blackish. In both wings the terminal area somewhat lighter, more yellowish brown, in apex of fore wing grading into yellowish. Hind wing with the apical area markedly reddish. In fore wing the dark apical spot and red dash weak, submarginal line practically wanting, in hind wing a somewhat undulating submarginal dark line well developed. Postmedian band in both wings strongly serrate, but not bent inwards. Antemedian band in both wings less distinct, not serrate, in fore wing angled on base of v2, in hind wing curved inwards. The vitreous patches in both wings very large, guttiform by having the base curved outwards, the basal angles rounded, and the top elongated and pointed towards the postmedian band. In both wings with two additional vitreous patches which are in fore wing slightly larger than in hind wing. In hind wing the lower patch communicates with the interior black border of the postmedian band. All these spots bordered by a black margin. The interior orange yellow border, so obvious in many dohertyi specimens, is wanting or indicated by some inconspicuous traces only. Underside corresponding with upperside, the outer half very light, as in atlas, but the subterminal markings in both wings practically wanting or obsolete. Lateral markings of abdomen much less developed than in atlas. I ♀, 25 cm, holotype, W. Sumba, IV. 1925, labelled Dammerman, Sumba Exp., in Museum Leiden. 2. THE SPECIES OF THE GENUS Attacus L. IN THE FAR EAST.
