    Description: A re-examination of the female holotype of Libellula (Oligoclada) abbreviata Rambur (1842) from Cayenne, deposited in the collection of de Selys Longchamps at the Brussels Museum, has brought to light that this is a female of Oligoclada raineyi Ris (1919), described after a single male from British Guiana. It could be compared with a pair captured in copulation of Oligoclada raineyi Ris (1919), from the interior of Surinam. The misidentified male of O. abbreviata discussed by Ris (1911), is now named O. risi spec. nov. A copulating pair of this insect was also found in Surinam and has been used for the redescription of that species.

    Publication Date: 2009-11-04
    Description: This first part of 'The larvae of the Dutch Chironomidae' deals with the larvae of Tanypodinae and Chironomini. In chapter I an introduction is given to sampling and handling of chironomid larvae. In chapter II their general morphology and development are described, followed by a key to the subfamilies (p. 25). The key for larvae of Tanypodinae (p. 34) in many cases leads to species level . For the Chironomini the first key (p. 103) leads to a genus or species group, but sometimes a further key (with description of the genus) enables identification of the species. For every taxon the fourth instar larva is described and the most important data on life cycle and ecology are given. When using this book in other countries one should be aware of the possible occurrence of species not known from or expected in the Netherlands. Each name used in this work has been indexed on p. 271-277. The second part of this work dealing with the Orthocladiinae, is in press.

    Description: A new species, Zanchius stami Van Doesburg (Insecta, Heteroptera, Miridae, Orthotylinae) from Syria, Deir-ez-Zor, is described and illustrated. Late eggs taken from the female abdomen have a peculiar chorionic process. It was found living (predaciously?) on cotton plants. It is compared with the closely related Z. alatanus Hoberlandt, 1956. Type specimens are deposited in the Rijksmuseum van Natuurlijke Historie, Leiden, two paratypes in the Národní Muzeum, Praha.

    Description: Systematiek De indeling van de Orthocladiinae levert zo mogelijk nog meer problemen op dan die van de andere subfamilies van de Chironomidae. Momenteel is het algemeen gebruikelijk de groep in vier subfamilies te splitsen: Diamesinae, Prodiamesinae, Orthocladiinae en Telmatogetoninae (zie bijv. Saether, 1979a; Ferrarese & Rossaro, 1981; Cranston, 1982). In oudere literatuur worden deze subfamilies vaak niet onderscheiden of wordt een andere indeling gemaakt (Brundin, 1956; Pankratova, 1970; Fittkau & Reiss, 1978). De Telmatogetoninae leven uitsluitend marien en zullen hier buiten beschouwing blijven. De verschillen tussen de larven van de overige subfamilies zijn voor een determineerwerk onpraktisch. Zo is het belangrijkste kenmerk van de Diamesinae-larven gelegen in de bouw van de hypopharynx en het verschil in de bouw van de antenne is niet bij alle soorten duidelijk. Daarom zijn in dit hoofdstuk de drie subfamilies nog als vanouds tesamen genomen en bij de beschrijvingen als één geheel alfabetisch gerangschikt. De alfabetische in plaats van systematische rangschikking is ingegeven door het grote aantal

    Description: A revised key to the subfamilies, tribes and subtribes of the Cetoniidae (Coleoptera: Scarabaeoidea) is presented. Comments are given on the classification implied by the key, which includes several redefinitions. All the known genera (ca. 510) are listed under their tribe or subtribe, the position of several being different from that in Schenkling's catalogues (1921, 1922). References to recent synoptic literature are given. Eighteen new subtribes are proposed, the majority in the tribe Cremastocheilini. One new tribe is proposed, the Platygeniini. Attention is drawn to various new and neglected synonymies, original spellings, and other nomenclatural matters regarding family-group and genus-group names. The position of many genera is briefly discussed. Some striking features of the biogeography of the Cetoniidae are discussed, such as the high generic endemicity for the major biogeographical regions (for the Madagascan, Afrotropical and Australasian regions ca. 90% or more).

    Description: The generic classification of the Afrotropical Bolboceratini is discussed. Fourteen genera are recognized, five of them new: Bolboceratellus, Bolbodius, Bolboceratex, Namibiobolbus and Meridiobolbus. Microbolbus Vulcano et al. is synonymized with Mimobolbus Vulcano et al. Bolbaffroides and Bolboceratops are raised to generic rank. The genera are keyed, diagnosed, and their species are listed. Many new combinations are proposed, mainly for species hitherto combined with Bolboceras Kirby.

    Description: The status of the four taxa Ectoedemia angulifasciella, E. atricollis, E. rubivora and E. arcuatella, has always been in debate. They have now been studied using several different systematic methods, relating to morphology, gel electrophoresis, host plant differentiation, life histories and distribution. Evidence is given here which demonstrates that they should be regarded as two pairs of sibling species.

    Description: Aus Surinam war bisher nur eine Scydmaenideart bekannt. Vom Rijksmuseum van Natuurlijke Historie in Leiden wurde mir mit anderen Scydmaeniden eine kleine Ausbeute aus Surinam übermittelt. In dieser waren vier neue Scydmaeniden-Arten enthalten, die ich nachstehend beschreibe. Die Gattung Euconnus ist weltweit verbreitet. Eine Gliederung in Subgenera ist immer noch sehr schwierig. Euconnus doesburgi n. sp. (Abb. 1) Es liegen 4 Exemplare dieser Art vor, die P. H. van Doesburg in der Zeit vom 17-22.vii. 1975 in Onverdacht bei Paranam in Surinam am Licht erbeutet hat. Der Holotypus (♂) und 2 Paratypen werden im Museum in Leiden, ein Paratypus in meiner Sammlung verwahrt. Diagnose. — Dem Subgenus Napochus Reitter nahestend. Gekennzeichnet durch großen, rundlichen Kopf mit bärtiger Behaarung der Schläfen und der Basis, exakt konischen Halsschild ohne Basalgrübchen und ohne basale Querfurche, sowie sehr kurzovale Flügeldecken mit seichter Basalimpression. Long. 1,30 mm, lat. 0,70 mm. Kastanienbraun, die Extremitäten rotbraun, fein, gelblich behaart. Kopf von oben betrachtet rundlich, mit den großen, stark vorgewölbten Augen breiter als lang, sehr flach gewölbt, an den Schläfen und an der Basis dicht, abstehend behaart. Fühler mit schwach abgesetzter, 4gliederiger Keule, zurückgelegt die Halsschildbasis erreichend, ihre beiden ersten Glieder leicht gestreckt, 3 bis 7 klein, schwach quer, 8 um die Hälfte breiter als 7, quadratisch, 9 und 10 noch ein wenig breiter, schwach quer, das gerundet-kegelförmige Endglied fast so lang wie die beiden vorhergehenden zusammen.

    Description: A taxonomic revision of the scarabaeoid genus Hybosorus is given, including descriptions, nomenclatorial notes, figures of genital apparatus and other relevant parts, a key, and notes on distribution and bionomics. Lectotypes are designated for Hybosorus carolinus LeConte, H. crassus Klug, H. nitidus Lansberge, H. pinguis Westwood, H. roei Westwood, and Hybosoroides alluaudi Benderitter. Hybosorus arator (Illiger), H. carolinus LeConte, H. nitidus Lansberge (nov. syn.), H. illigeri var. nossibianus Fairmaire, H. pinguis Westwood, H. roei Westwood, H. arator subsp. arator (Illiger) sensu Endrödi, 1957 (nov. syn.) and H. arator subsp. palearcticus Endrödi (nov. syn.) are considered synonyms of H. illigeri Reiche. Problems concerning the type-species and some dubious names are discussed. Arguments are given for Hybosorus oblongus Dahlbom, H. pinguis Westwood, H. roei Westwood and H. carolinus LeConte being nomina oblita. Hybosorus laportei Westwood is considered a valid species and H. thoracicus Westwood a synonym of H. laportei (nov. syn.). Both were currently considered synonyms of H. illigeri Reiche. A new genus, Seleucosorus, is erected for Hybosorus punctatissimus Reiche. Hybosoroides alluaudi Benderitter, due to its close similarity to Hybosorus, is included in this revision. Hybosorus laeviceps Fairmaire is considered a synonym of H. baliensis Brancsik. Removed from Hybosorus are H. curtulus Fairmaire, being a Melolonthine, and H incultus Péringuey, being an Orphnine.

Nepticula repentiella Wolff, 1955, and Nepticula lappovimella Svensson, 1976, are placed in synonomy with S. zelleriella, which is redescribed and discriminated from resembling species. It appears to have a northern distribution, occurring in sand-dunes on the Salix repens L.-complex and on moors in Scandinavia on Salix lapponum L. The related S. benanderella (Wolff, 1955), which occurs on the same foodplants, is also diagnosed.

    Description: En 1894, Kohl décrit d'Espagne la ♀ de Pompilus hasdrubal, espèce voisine de Pompilus sexmaculatus Spinola et caractérisée, entre autres, par un peigne de trois épines au métatarse 1 ce qui correspond bien au spécimen typique que Michael Day et moi-même avons pu examiner, en juillet 1981, au Naturhistorisches Museum Wien. Cet exemplaire porte l'étiquetage suivant: "Barcelona, Amiga", une étiquette de détermination écrite par Kohl "hasdrubal Type dét. Kohl" et une étiquette manuscrite de Priesner "gehört zu Aporinellus (Amblyellus m.) H. Priesner". Il est absolument conforme, dans tous les détails, au Pompilus obtusus Gussakowskij, 1935, au sens des auteurs européens modernes (= Pompiloides insidiosus Nouvel & Ribaut, 1958). Priesner (1969) fait état d'un Pompilus hanibal Kohl, 1888 qui serait voisin de Aporinellus (Amblyellus) insidiosus Nouvel & Ribaut ( = obtusus Gussakowskij) et s'en distinguerait essentiellement par un peigne de quatre épines au métatarse 1 (l'apicale nettement plus longue que le deuxième article des tarses). Je ne puis cependant comprendre où Priesner en a trouvé trace car c'est en vain qu'on cherchera la description d'une espèce de ce nom dans les publications de Kohl. Wolf (1972) signale sous le nom d'Amblyellus hasdrubal Kohl une espèce qu'il distingue d'obtusus Gussakowskij ( = insidiosus Nouvel & Ribaut) par les caractères donnés par Priesner pour singulariser "hanibal". Day (1981) valide enfin le nom générique Amblyellus par désignation d'une espèce-type et cite trois espèces paléarctiques: hasdrubal Kohl, 1894, obtusus Gussakowskij, 1935 (= insidiosus Nouvel & Ribaut, 1958) et kiritschenkoi Gussakowskij, 1930. Day pense que "hanibal" est probablement un lapsus pour hasdrubal Kohl et signale, par erreur, un ♂ comme holotype (en fait, le spécimen type est bien une ♀).

    Description: Kürzlich erhielten wir mehrere Exemplare von Parnassius nomion Hübner, die in Asia orientalis, Mongolia borealis, 150 km südlich Ulan-Bator an einigen Flugplätzen erbeutet wurden. Davon zeigt eine Serie aus Bajon Samon, Culut, 1300 m, 25.viii. 1980, konstante und einheitliche Merkmale, die die Aufstellung einer P. n. culutensis subsp. nova gestatten. Auf der Fototafel ist die neue Unterart abgebildet (Taf. 1: Fig. 1, Holotype ♂; Fig. 2, Allotype ♀; Fig. 3, 4, Paratypen). Holotype und Allotype in coll. Eisner in coll. Rijksmuseum van Natuurlijke Historie, Leiden; Paratypen (20 ♂, 19 ♀) in coll. Eisner, Krušek und Naumann (Bielefeld). Die neue Unterart steht P. n. nominulus Stgr., die im Durchschnitt etwas grösser ist, am nächsten. Der Flügelfond ist bei P. n. culutensis dichter weiss beschuppt und die (teilweise auf hyalinem Grund) angelegte Schwarzbestäubung von P. n. nominulus fehlt ihr fast vollständig. Ebenso fehlt die fasciata-Binde im Vorderflügel. Die Ozellen sind grösser, mit grösserem Weissspiegel und die rote Prachtfarbe in den Costalflecken, im Hinterrandsfleck der Vorderflügel und in den Analflecken, ist kräftiger. Die Marginale und die Submarginale sind lichter und meist breiter angelegt und im Hinterflügel in einer Fleckenreihe entwickelt. Für die Anfertigung der Fototafel danken wir Prof. Dr. C. Naumann (Universität Bielefeld). Der Traum einer dritten generatio-forma dieses Lingamius ist ausgeträumt, beruhte auf falsch gedeuteten Wahrnehmungen. Da sich Hans J. Epstein (1979) in "Interesting, rare and new Papilionids (Lepidoptera, Papilionidae) from the Central Nepal Himalayas" (Entom. Gaz., 30: 157-188) auch eingehend mit diesem Lingamius beschäftigt, muss ich wohl darauf reagieren. Ohne auf die Tiraden im einzelnen einzugehen, sei betont,

    Description: A revision is given of the Oriental genus Matapa Moore. Two species, M. intermedia and M. deprivata, and one subspecies, M. intermedia nigrita, are described as new. A key to the nine species known at present is provided. Figures are given of male and female genitalia, and of forewings of males. The phylogeny of the genus and its geographic history are discussed. It is shown that three monophyletic groups can be distinguished, which all originated in mainland Southeast Asia. The occurrence of one species in India is the result of a geologically speaking recent invasion. There are indications of a double colonization of Celebes from the Philippines.

    Description: Arguments are put forward for the erection of a new family of Diptera, named Centrioncidae. Centrioncus prodiopsis, its only previously described representative, was originally placed in the Sepsidae and later transferred to the Diopsidae. This species is now redescribed and five more Centrioncus are added. For 15 new Centrioncidae species occurring south of the Zambesi the genus Teloglabrus is created. A key to the species is given. Centrioncidae only occur in Afromontane forests and all species have very limited, allopatric distributions. They are now known to occur in Ivory Coast, Sudan, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Zaire, Malawi, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Swaziland and South Africa. A review of the Centrioncus literature is given. The morphology, especially of female and male postabdomen, is discussed. A sister-group relationship between Centrioncidae and the neotropical Syringogastridae is postulated. Together these two families might form the sister-group of the Diopsidae. Intrafamiliar phylogenetic relationships of Centrioncidae are also indicated. Parasitism by Rhizomyces spp. (Laboulbeniales) is briefly discussed.

    Description: Eleven species of Nepticulidae are recorded from the Netherlands for the first time. Eight of these have been collected as larvae during recent field work: Ecroedernia hannoverella (Glitz), E. nlediofasciella (Haworth), E. spirzosella (Joannis). E. arcz~arella (Herrich- Schaffer). Trifurcula cryptella (Stainton), Stigmella aeneofusciella (Herrich-Schaffer). S. poterii (Stainton), and S. crataegella Klimesch. On the basis of old collection material E. longicaudella Klimesch, E. bradfordi Emmet and S. svenssoni (Johansson) can be added to the list. A single specimen of E. bradfordi appears to be only the second one known. Some notes on rare species are given. S. regiella (Frey) is recorded for the first time from Belgium.

    Description: The scarab tribe Corythoderini is reviewed. All its members appear associated with termites, probably in a symphilous way; the host records all pertain to Odontotermes species. The known range of the Corythoderini falls within the range of the host genus : Africa to Burma. The phylogeny of the corythoderine genera is discussed. Comparative remarks on other termitophilous scarabs are added. The closest known relatives of the Corythoderini are the Termitoderini, trib. nov. The tribe Corythoderini is diagnosed, inter alia, by means of a key to the subfamilies and tribes of the Aphodiidae. The corythoderine genera are diagnosed and keyed. All the species are keyed, and the new species are described. The characters of the genera and of the species of the two larger genera are analysed and reviewed in tabular form. One new genus is proposed : Hemicorythoderus ; one new subgenus : Miochaetopisthes ; 15 new species are described in the genera Chaetopisthes Westwood, Termitopisthes Wasmann, Paracorythoderus Wasmann. Type-species as well as lectotypes are designated. The known distribution of the species is mapped. The taxonomic information on all the taxa recognized is summarized in an annotated checklist.

    Description: The distribution of the genus Cercyon Leach in the Netherlands has been examined. A survey of characters and character-states is provided. Keys to species and supraspecific taxa are given. The distribution of each species is mapped and the male genitalia are figured. It is noted that the presence or absence of an emargination at the apex of the prosternum is an important character in the supraspecific classification of the genus Cercyon. The presence of male adherence discs at the maxillae is not unique for the tribe Cercyonini, but occurs also in the tribes Sphaeridiini and Megasternini. C. laminatus Sharp is placed in the subgenus Paracycreon d'Orchymont. C. alni Vogt is placed in synonymy with C. convexiusculus Stephens. A lectotype is designated for Sphaeridium ferrugineum Fabricius. This species belongs to the genus Leiodes Latreille. Although the same Cercyon-species occur in dung-samples from the Netherlands, England and Finland, considerable differences in the quantitative species-composition exist. In the last decades C. atricapillus (Marsham) has become very scarce in the Netherlands. Most specimens of Cercyon were collected during spring, except C. laminatus and C. atricapillus, which were more abundant during summer.

    Description: Geen andere soorten van de Palaearctische Bladrollers (Tortricidae) vertonen een grotere variabiliteit van kleur en tekening binnen de soort dan die van het geslacht Acleris Hübner. Het is daarom vaak onmogelijk om ze op naam te brengen met de uitwendige kenmerken alleen, zodat men is aangewezen op de kenmerken van de mannelijke en vrouwelijke genitalia. Deze zijn daarentegen uitstekend geschikt voor determinatie en zo karakteristiek en constant binnen de soort, dat zelfs een eenvoudige schets ervan voor ons doel voldoende is. Er komen 23 soorten van Acleris in Nederland voor, waarvan verscheidene als vijanden van landbouwgewassen zijn aan te merken. Andere kunnen schade toebrengen aan sierbomen en struiken. Hun determinatie is derhalve van praktisch nut, doch kan bovengenoemde moeilijkheden opleveren. Dit artikeltje is bedoeld als een zo eenvoudig en kort mogelijk hulpmiddel voor deze determinatie. Hieronder volgen twee determinatie-tabellen, een voor de mannetjes en een voor de wijfjes, uitsluitend gebaseerd op de kenmerken van de genitalia; de tabellen worden verduidelijkt door eenvoudige schetsen, als hierboven bedoeld. Deze schetsen zijn gemaakt door de tweede schrijver, in hoofdzaak naar diens eigen, maar ook naar enkele andere preparaten, terwijl de tabellen van de eerste schrijver stammen. Zij worden voorafgegaan door twee verklarende figuren met legenda (fig. 1 en 2). Het materiaal voor deze studie werd in bruikleen ontvangen uit de Nederlandse collectie van het Rijksmuseum van Natuurlijke Historie te Leiden. Bovendien leek het ons raadzaam een beknopte beschrijving van het maken van genitaal-preparaten te geven, gevolgd door een lijst van de Nederlandse soorten van Acleris, met vermelding van de namen van bekende voedselplanten; het een en ander in hoofdzaak ontleend aan een eerder verschenen werk, ,,De

    Description: EINLEITUNG In den Jahren 1975, 1977 und 1978 konnten in den Sommermonaten zahlreiche Gewässer der Halbinsel Walcheren auf ihre aquatische Käferfauna hin untersucht werden. Walcheren, ehemals eine Insel in der Scheidemündung, gehört zur Provinz Zeeland und ist heute durch die Polderlandschaft Beveland im Osten mit dem Festland verbunden. Die nördlichen Inseln und Halbinseln sind im Westen durch Deiche verbunden, die ein Eindringen des Nordseewassers verhindern. Der letzte dieser Deiche ist 1978 zwischen Walcheren und Schouwen erstellt worden. Die Zuflüsse vor allem der Maas führen in Zukunft vermutlich zu einer starken Aussüßung der nördlichen Scheidearme, was sich mit Sicherheit auch auf die übrigen vom Grundwasser gespeisten Brackgewässer auswirkt. Die Fauna der stark salzhaltigen küstennahen Gewässer, die bereits von Higler (1967) untersucht wurde, ist von besonderer Bedeutung, da gerade hier seltene halophile und halobionte Arten erwartet werden können. Higler's Hauptaugenmerk lag allerdings bei den Heteroptera, sodaß die vorliegende Untersuchung eine wesentliche Erweiterung der Faunenliste darstellen kann. An Hand des Arteninventars an aquatischen Insekten — marine Insekten fehlen im Nordatlantik — ist es vielleicht möglich, den Salzgehalt des jeweiligen Gewässers abzuschätzen. Der konkurrenzarme Lebensraum beherbergt auch ubiquitäre Kurzzeitbesiedler, die möglicherweise nur eine Fortpflanzungsperiode lang dieses Habitat besiedeln. Die Macrofauna einzelner Gewässer auf Walcheren untersuchten Nieser (1966), Higler (1967) und Van der Velde & Polderman (1974). Brakman (1966) erstellt eine Liste der Coleoptera von den Niederlanden, die die Angaben von

The distribution of the species in the Netherlands is recorded and mapped. Data on the ecology are given. Of all mentioned species the male genitalia are figured. The larva and egg-case of L. minutus (Linnaeus) are shortly diagnosed and figured. It is obvious that L. albipes Kuwert and L. obscuratus Rottenberg are not Dutch species. L. atratus Rottenberg, mentioned incorrectly as a Dutch species in the past, is now recorded for the first time. L. belgicus Gentili, 1979 is a junior synonym of L. striatulus Fabricius.

    Description: A revision of the species of Phaeochroops Candèze is given. The species recognized before this study are redescribed and seven new species are defined, viz., P. colopacilis (Vietnam), freenae (Malaya), seres (Vietnam), ninbin (Vietnam), lakhonicus (Thailand), longisetosus (India) and vulturius (Sumatra). For nine species lectotypes are designated, viz., P. gigas Arrow, punctulatus Arrow, indicus Arrow, opacicollis Arrow, rattus Arrow, batuensis Arrow, mentaweiensis Arrow, niasianus Arrow, vulpecula Arrow. Five forms are considered synonyms, viz., P. niasianus Arrow, batuensis Arrow and mentaweiensis Arrow are synonyms of rattus Arrow (P. mentaweiensis already synonymized by Arrow, 1942) ; recticollis Pic is a synonym of silphoides Fairmaire ; punctulatus Arrow is a synonym of gilleti Benderitter (synonymy presumed by Arrow, 1942). Plates of four new species are given, as well as figures of male genitalia, sculpture of dorsal surfaces, and setosity for nearly all species. A key to the species, a checklist, and notes on bionomics and distribution are given.

    Description: The present paper comprises the descriptions of the male of Bloeteomedes borneensis Van Doesburg, and Bloeteomedes sarawakensis nova species. I am greatly indebted to Dr. W. J. Knight and Mr. W. R. Dolling for the loan of the specimens, and for their kind assistance during my stay in the British Museum (Natural History) to which the specimens belong. Bloeteomedes borneensis Van Doesburg (figs. 1, 5-8) One male specimen, very similar to the female but somewhat smaller. Antennal seta (on second segment) situated on 0.29 part from apex. In the holotype this is 0.27 and not 3/14 as was wrongly mentioned in the description. Ninth segment (genital capsule, figs. 6, 8) broad, rounded, slightly produced posteriorly; posterior margin of genital cavity turned-up, bisinuate and slightly excavated medially as seen from behind. Paramere (fig. 7) short, S-shaped, with a broad, flattened and finely punctated apical hook. Measurements (in mm): total length including wings 12.2; width 5.35; length of pronotum 2.56, width 4.12; width of head over eyes 1.56; width between eyes 0.83. Data on labels: Sarawak, foot of Mt. Dulit, Junction of rivers Tinjes & Lejok, 7.IX.1933 — old secondary forest — on bark of felled tree — Oxford Univ. Exp. B. M. Hobby & A. W. Moore. B.M. 1933-254. Bloeteomedes sarawakensis nova species (figs. 2-4, 9-11) This species of which two males are available, has a close resemblance to B. borneensis but differs in the following respects. Somewhat smaller and darker, the light patches on the costal margins of the fore wings much more conspicuous. Unpigmented apical part of second antennal segment occupying about 1/4 (0.23) part of its length. Antennal seta situated respectively on

    Description: Bei Besuchen in Leiden und Paris im Jahr 1977 habe ich Listen des Materials angefertigt, das aus den Sammlungen Gravenhorst oder Holmgren stammt, jetzt aber in den naturhistorischen Museen in diesen Städten aufbewahrt wird. Mademoiselle Dr. S. Kelner-Pillault (Muséum national d'histoire naturelle, Paris) und Herrn Dr. C. van Achterberg (Rijksmuseum van Natuurlijke Historie, Leiden) bin ich für ihre Hilfe zu großem Dank verpflichtet. Die Untersuchungen wurden durch eine Reisebeihilfe der Deutschen Forschungsgemeinschaft unterstützt. I. ICHNEUMONIDAE AUS DER SAMMLUNG GRAVENHORST IM RIJKSMUSEUM VAN NATUURLIJKE HISTORIE IN LEIDEN In seinem dreibändigen Werk "Ichneumonologia Europaea" hat J. L. C. Gravenhorst (1829) die Grundlage für die Systematik der Familie Ichneumonidae gelegt, zahlreiche Arten neu beschrieben und ebenso zahlreiche Arten älterer Autoren, deren Sammlungen oft verschollen sind, gedeutet und damit in ihrem Gebrauch festgelegt. Das Material, das die Basis für diese Untersuchungen bildete, wurde zum größten Teil in seiner eigenen Sammlung in Breslau (jetzt Wroclaw) aufbewahrt. Einige Teile waren aber nie in seinem Besitz, andere hat er vermutlich selbst während und nach der Fertigstellung seiner Arbeiten an andere Museen abgegeben, unter anderem auch an das Rijksmuseum van Natuurlijke Historie in Leiden (Townes, 1959, 1965). Da etwa ein Viertel seiner Sammlung in Breslau gegen Ende des letzten Krieges verloren gegangen ist, haben diese anderen Sammlungsteile einen besonderen Wert bekommen, denn in ihnen sind Arten erhalten, die in der Hauptsammlung jetzt fehlen. Das Museum in Leiden hat das Material im Jahr 1825 erworben (nach

    Description: In the catalogue of Saldidae (Drake & Hoberlandt, 1950), ten species of Pentacora are listed, but only six of these actually belong in this genus. For one species, viz., mexicana (Van Duzee) (see Lattin & Cobben, 1968), a separate genus has been erected (Enalosalda Polhemus & Evans, 1969; further details in Polhemus, 1972). P. rubromaculata (Heidem.) has been synonymized with P. sphacelata (Uhler) (Drake & Hottes, 1954; Cobben, 1965). Two other species listed by Drake & Hoberlandt (1950) were transferred to Pseudosaldula (Cobben, 1961), a genus which should be placed in the Saldinae. Pentacora is a member of the more generalized subfamily Chiloxanthinae. Later descriptions of Pentacora species (Drake, 1955a) refer mainly to Pseudosaldula, a genus widely distributed in South America. The predominantly halophilous genus Pentacora presently contains ten species. Four of them (P. hirta, ligata, saratogae, signoreti) are known only from the West-Indies, USA and Canada. One species, P. sphacelata occurs in the southern areas of Mid and North America, West Indies, Surinam (Wiawia, xi.1972, leg. St. Panday-Verheuvel, new country record), Peru (Drake, 1955a), Galapagos Isl. (Polhemus, 1968), and in the West Mediterranean (Cobben, 1960). The remaining five species are recorded only from the southeastern parts of the Old World. A new Pentacora species from Australia is described here and compared with other oriental species. Type material of the latter species was also examined. A survey of the known species of the Oriental and Australian regions is given below. Pentacora salina (Bergroth, 1893) (figs. 3, 8, 15b, 17b, 18) This species was described by Bergroth as Acanthia salina in 1893 and transferred to Pentacora by Drake & Hoberlandt (1950).

    Description: RÉSUMÉ Cette note donne la distribution et des clés pour la séparation des 16 espèces de Homalictus Cockerell (groupe Homalictus, s.str.) recensées en Indonésie, île de NouvelleGuinée excepté. Six espèces nouvelles sont décrites (declivis, kangeani, moearae, ranacus, subdeclivis, vechti) ainsi que les mâles nouveaux de babakanensis (Friese) et toxopei (Alfken). Le mâle de testaceipes (Friese) est désigné comme le lectotype de l'espèce et associé à une nouvelle femelle. H. nusaensis est le nom. nov. pour nigroviridis (Friese, non Graenicher). H. babakanensis (Friese), H. bataviae (Blüthgen), H. getasanus (Blüthgen), H. laraticus (Blüthgen), H. nusaensis (Cockerell), H. redivivus (Blüthgen), H. testaceipes (Friese) sont des comb. nov. dans le genre Homalictus. Les abeilles du genre Homalictus sont abondantes dans la région australienne, les îles du Pacifique et l'Archipel indomalais. Ce genre comprend des espèces souvent métalliques dont le caractère le plus remarquable est la présence d'une brosse de poils récolteurs sur les sternites abdominaux. Michener (1965) a donné la liste des espèces australiennes et sud-pacifiques, les espèces de Micronésie ont été révisées par Krombein (1950) et les espèces indomalaises par Blüthgen (1926, 1928, 1931). On peut séparer facilement les espèces indonésiennes en deux groupes (Homalictus, sensu stricto, et Indohalictus Blüthgen), mais ceux-ci ne sont plus reconnus comme sous-genres depuis la classification de Michener (1965) en raison de l'existence d'espèces australiennes de position ambiguë. Seul le groupe Homalictus, sensu stricto, sera révisé ici et l'aire géographique considérée sera limitée aux îles indonésiennes, Nouvelle-Guinée excepté. Au total, 16 espèces de Homalictus, s.str., ont été relevées au cours de notre étude, parmi lesquelles 6 sont nouvelles, mais il est évident que de nombreuses

    Description: During recent curatorial activities in our Calliphorid collection I came across the type-series of Calliphora nigribarbis Snellen van Vollenhoven, 1863. The series consists of four specimens, which had been labelled as syntypes by me at an earlier occasion. They belong unmistakably to one lot, although only two bear identical, original, printed labels reading "V. Siebold/Japan". All four have a second handwritten label with the scientific name, "Calliphora nigribarbis v. Voll.", and a last printed line "Coll. F. M. v. d. Wulp". These latter labels were also put on by me, in 1965, when rearranging the Diptera collection of our museum and are nothing more than an indication that the specimens concerned came from one of the old cabinets originating from, at least, the times of F. M. van der Wulp. These cabinets contained wooden drawers with loose glass covers with the label and specimen pins forced straight into the bare wooden bottom, no soft bottom-plates being present. Specimens in this old collection were placed below blackrimmed labels bearing the specific name, while names of higher categories (genera and families) were written on separate, hand-written, red-rimmed labels. Thus the actual specimen pins were unlabelled — a very archaic and unsatisfactory situation —, while some of the specimens had no label at all, because in the case of longer series only the first and last specimens had a locality-label. When transferring the specimens to modern drawers I provided every specimen with a new identification label, so as to preserve their then identification. The four syntypes of Calliphora nigribarbis apparently comprise the complete material of this species. Snellen van Vollenhoven (1863: 17-18) mentions only four specimens from Japan, collected by Von Siebold. The four

    Description: SUMMARY The author investigates the species of the genus Episyron Schioedte occurring in the Philippines. Six species, instead of eight originally recorded, are revised. Two lectotypes (E. vagabundum Smith, 1858 and Anoplius lepidohirtus Turner, 1910) are designated; five specific synonyms are newly established (E. saussurei Banks, 1934 = E. binghami Banks, 1934; Pompilus cognatus Smith, 1865 and Anoplius lepidohirtus Turner, 1910 = E. pilifrons Smith, 1859; Pompilus capitosus Smith, 1879 = E. vagabundum Smith, 1858; E. smithi Banks, 1934 = Paracyphononyx incognitus Cameron, 1891). Three new combinations are established (Pompilus cognatus Smith, 1864 = E. cognatus and Pompilus capitosus Smith, 1879 = E. capitosus; E. smithi Banks, 1934 = Paracyphononyx smithi). Distributional and biological data are given and a key to species ( ♀ only) provided. Dans une courte note (1938: 40) consacrée aux Pompilides de Singapore ainsi que dans un travail plus important sur ceux des Iles Philippines (1934), Nathan Banks a réservé plusieurs pages à l'étude du genre Episyron Schioedte, y décrivant notamment un certain nombre d'espèces nouvelles. Le catalogue des Hyménoptères des Iles Philippines de Baltazar (1966) présente une liste des espèces du genre absolument conforme à celle que l'on peut tirer des travaux de Banks. Grâce à l'assistance de MM. les Dr. A. S. Menke et Κ. V. Krombein (National Museum of Natural History, Washington (USNM)) et de Ms. Marilyn M. Pearce (Museum of Comparative Zoology Cambridge (MCZ)), j'ai eu récemment l'opportunité d'étudier les matériaux, y compris les types, examinés autrefois par Banks ainsi qu'un certain nombre de spécimens de même origine, cédés en échange à d'autres institutions: Rijksmuseum van

Oberth., P. tianschanicus Ch. Oberth., P. nomion Hb. und einen Teil von P. apollo L. kritisch bearbeitet, bis die Entwicklung der politischen Verhältnisse in Deutschland die weitere Herausgabe der „Parnassiana" durch uns unmöglich machte und dadurch unsere Arbeit unterbrach. Wäre der Weltkrieg nicht ausgebrochen, hätten wir wahrscheinlich einen Weg gefunden, um das uns an's Herz gewachsene Werk schon längst fortzusetzen. Bryk weilt nun in Stockholm, mein Wohnsitz ist Den Haag, die enge Zusammenarbeit der Vergangenheit ist nicht möglich. Ich habe mich deshalb gefragt, ob ich es ohne die Unterstützung von Bryk's tiefem Wissen um die Parnassier und ohne seine kritische Kontrolle wagen kann, allein mit der Revision der Gattung fortzufahren. Ich habe aber das Gefühl, damit doch einen Beitrag zu der Kenntnis dieser interessanten Lepidopteren-Familie leisten zu können, und habe mich angemutigt durch meine Leidener Freunde entschlossen, dies zu tun. Herr Professor Boschma, dem ich dafür zu grossem Dank verpflichtet bin, hat mir angeboten, für die Veröffentlichung meiner Arbeiten in einer Form sorgen zu wollen, die es gestatten wird, diese separat zu sammeln und als Fortsetzung der früheren Veröffentlichung in „Parnassiana" zu ge-

    Description: In the taxonomy of Coccoidea or scale insects much confusion is due to an insufficient knowledge of the type species of several genera. Especially our knowledge of some of the older genera is very incomplete, as the descriptions of their type species are extremely short and superficial from the modern point of view. The type specimens, on which the original descriptions of the genera were based, are distributed over several museums in all parts of the world; in some cases type material is no longer in existence, and as far as available it is seldom lent to persons in foreign countries. In consequence of this we have often to rely on the original description, as the type material is not available for examination. Signoret (Essai sur les Cochenilles, 1868-1876) was one of the first to describe the microscopical details of the genera and species which he introduced. He boiled his specimens in a solution of caustic potash to make microscopical preparations of the chitinous parts and did not hesitate to prepare even unique specimens ("que nous n'avons pas hésité à sacrifier dans l'intérêt de la science, tout en conservant les préparations bonnes à consulter, pensant qu'elles seraient ainsi plus utiles qu'une masse informe attachée à un épingle et qui ne peut présenter aucun caractère que l'on puisse énumérer"). In many cases, however, his descriptions are not detailed enough for the needs of present taxonomy. As the number of described species has increased greatly since Signoret's time, it has become necessary to pay attention to several minute details which were formerly of no importance to separate the species then known. In consequence of the superficial descriptions by earlier authors the concepts of several genera are rather vague. Ferris has emphasized that in order

    Description: In seiner Behandlung der Gattung Archon Hb. im Tierreich „Lepidoptera pars I" kommt Bryk am Schluss seiner Betrachtungen zu der Feststellung, dass sich die geographischen „Formen" (subspecies?) in drei Gruppen zusammenfassen lassen. Unbestreitbar sind davon der „bellargus-Kreis" und der Rassenkreis, der die verschiedenen subspecies aus Pontus und Armenien beheimatet. Unklar ist die dritte Gruppe, zu der Bryk A. apollinus Herbst und subsp. thracica Buresch vereinigt. Die Diagnosen, die Bryk für die verschiedenen Rassen gibt, zwingen mich, da ich sein tiefes Wissen von allem und sein Feingefühl für alles, was mit Parnassxus zu tun hat, kenne, zu der Annahme, dass ihm ein zu beschränktes oder unzuverlässiges Material bei seiner Arbeit zu Verfügung gestanden hat. Ich weiss aus eigener Erfahrung, das gerade von Archon ungezählte Exemplare mit falschen Fundortetiquetten im Umlauf sind, oder solche, die den Vermerk e.l. missen. Das letztere ist insofern von Bedeutung, als mir eine grosse Anzahl e.l. Archon — teilweise aus eigener Zucht — vorliegen, die die Berechtigung der Aufstellung geographischer Rassen geradezu lügenzustrafen scheinen. Das Zudhtmaterial zeigt die ganze Variabilitätsbreite der Art und erinnert beispielsweise bei syrischer Herkunft kaum noch an das typische Aussehen von subsp. bellargus Staud. Zucht von Parnassiern ergibt fast stets Tiere, die vom Typus der betreffenden Rasse abweichen, aber sie doch nicht so vollständig verleugnen, wie es bei der grossen Serie Material, Herkunft Beyrouth, in meiner Sammlung der Fall ist. Was ist aber der typische apollinus? Bryk führt als Fundort für den Typus „Umgebung von Aleppo (Insel Kurlak)" auf, gibt aber als Verbreitungsgebiet gleichzeitig „Kleinasien, Mesopotamien" an.

    Description: Viele Sammler rümpfen die Nase über die Benennung von Formen. Deren Festhaltung ist indessen wichtig, um einen Überblick über die Variabilitätsbreite einer Species zu geben ; ein weiterer Vorteil der dadurch erhaltenen Übersicht ist, dass er es dem Systematiker leichter macht, die für eine subspecies characteristischen Merkmale innerhalb der Variabilitätsmöglichkeit der species festzulegen. Aus dieser Anschauung heraus benenne ich die folgenden Formen: Luehdorfia puziloi Ersch. cf f. pallida (m.). Grundfarbe des cf weissgelb, wie sie sonst nur ? zeigen. Patria : Sutschanski-Rudnik, Ussuri, ι cf Typus. subsp. coreana Mats. f. fasciata (m.). ι cf mit im Hinterflügel einer continuierlichen Binde vom Wurzelfelde über Mittelzelle nach dem unteren Ende der Hinterrandschwärze.

Die roten Prachtflecken des Hinterflügels sind ungewöhnlich stark entwickelt zu einer breiten Binde, wie sie für subsp. chinensis Leech typisch ist, während bei inexpecta die roten Flecke normal gerade angedeutet sind.

    Description: During a short stay at Bangkok on December 3rd, 1953, Professor H. Boschma observed that enormous quantities of minute insects were attracted by lamplight in the hotel of the Royal Dutch Airlines (K.L.M.) "Plaswijk" at the airport Laksi. From the enormous accumulations of these insects around the lamps he collected a sample which he entrusted to me for examination. This sample proved to consist almost entirely of a new species of mayfly which is described in the present paper. Caenis demoulini nov. spec. Female imago. Head and thorax uniformly yellowish brown. Eyes purple-black, prominent. Antennae grey-brown ; median ocellus prominent, colour light brown with a darker edge.

    Description: OLETHREUTINAE (Eucosmidae auct., Eucosminae auct.) Introduction The study of the South Asiatic representatives of the subfamily Olethreutinae of the Tortricidae is difficult on account of various reasons. Our basic knowledge of this group of insects originates from the knowledge of the Palaearctic fauna; unfortunately the taxonomy, and especially the nomenclature of the European Olethreutinae has for a long time been in a deplorable state of confusion and only recent pioneer work along modern lines, chiefly by Obraztsov, leads to some order. Unavoidably this confusion throws a shadow upon the study of the Olethreutinae from other regions than the Palaearctis. Since genital characters are of cardinal importance for the classification of the genera and species of the present group, it is clear that a fundamental revision is necessary, because nobody has ever bothered about these characters before, at least with regard to the South Asiatic fauna. When describing species from that region classic authors, as e.g., Snellen, usually chose a convenient generic name, familiar to the students of the Palaearctic fauna, to attribute them to ; Meyrick, as conveniently, merged many species in one of some four of his enormous genera. Many species of Olethreutinae are ornated with intricate markings that are very difficult to describe in a terse diagnose, as was the habit with those older authors; these descriptions are still more difficult to read! Other species are uniform to such an extent that their identification is impossible without the use of genital characters. Furthermore, Meyrick

    Description: In 1950 I received from Mr. D. Hille Ris Lambers a strange Pseudococcid from Java which had been collected by Mr. F. W. Rappard, a senior forestry officer, who regularly collects aphids for Mr. Hille Ris Lambers on his tours of duty. As this insect was a coccid, it was transmitted to me for examination. Its appearance is quite abnormal; the shape of its body reminds one almost of a large mite (fig. 4). The 6-segmented antennae have a dense vestiture of fine hairs, with exception of the 2 first segments which are very short. A tuft of 5 very long setae is present on the top of each of the anal lobes. The ungual digitules are extremely large and very flat. It was only after close study that the insect was recognized as a Pseudococcid. It has 2 pairs of ostioles in the usual position, a circulus on the ventral side of the second abdominal segment, and a few trilocular pores on both sides of the body. As I suspected an abnormal mode of living, I asked Mr. Hille Ris Lambers to write to Java for further particulars, and more material. To comply with this request Mr. Rappard has collected abundant material and communicated his field notes on these insects, which he calls "ant-riders" from their peculiar habit of climbing upon the black ants by which they are closely attended, as soon as these ants are disturbed, to have themselves transported in this way. The material at hand contains 3 different instars which seem to represent first and second stage larvae, and immature adult females. Of the latter stage only 3 specimens are available. Eggs or embryos were not observed in these specimens, but in one of them the oviduct and its exterior opening (one segment behind the posterior ostioles) is faintly visible in the chitinous

    Description: In the course of the year 1954 I received for identification a little Nematoceron belonging to the family Lycoriidae (Sciaridae). After a careful examination of the material and the literature I arrived at the conclusion that my specimens represented a hitherto undescribed species. It belongs to the genus Neosciara Pettey, 1918 (sensu Lengersdorf, 1930 and Frey, 1942). There is some confusion about the naming and delimitation of the genera in the subfamily Lycoriinae. The four most important opinions are : I. Lengersdorf (1930) : Genus Lycoria Meigen, 1800, syn. Saara Meigen, 1803, Gruppe I (no name, veins cu and m with bristles) and Gruppe II Neosciara Pettey, 1918 (cu and m bare). II. Séguy (1940) : Genus Lycoria Meigen, 1800 (cu and m with bristles) and S ciara Meigen, 1803 (veins cu and m bare). III. Frey (1942) : Genus Sciara Meigen, 1803, syn. Lycoria Meigen, 1800 (cu and m with bristles) and genus Neosciara Pettey, 1918 (cu and m without bristles). IV. Frey (1948): Genus Sciara Meigen, 1803 (cu and m with bristles) and genus Bradysia Winnertz, 1867, containing the subgenus Neosciara Pettey, 1918. The character concerning the bristles on the veins cu and m is very important for distinguishing these genera. When summarizing the above opinions we find that the species with bristles on cu and m have been named Lycoria Meigen, 1800 = Sciara Meigen, 1803 (Lengersdorf, 1930) ; Lycoria Meigen, 1800 (Séguy, 1940) ; Sciara Meigen, 1803 = Lycoria Meigen, 1800 (Frey, 1942, 1948). The species lacking setae on the veins cu and m have been named Neosciara Pettey, 1918 (Lengersdorf, 1930, Frey, 1942) ; Sciara

    Description: Apterous Aradidae were first brought to the attention of Hemipterists by N. C. E. Miller (Ann. Mag. Nat. Hist. [11] 1: 498-510, 1938). In fact it can be said that this paper with its excellent illustrations was the stimulus for the striking discoveries that have been made in this group in the past decade. The genus Chelonocoris Miller was proposed for a group of seven (actually 8 as is shown below) very large species from Malaya, Borneo, and (as it now appears) India. The present paper was prompted by the discovery in various European museums of several additional species which extend the known range of the genus to Java and Sumatra. In order to place these new species a key was prepared. The first key was based on Miller's types and was written while studying at the British Museum (Natural History) in 1949. A drastic revision of the key was necessitated when the species from Java and Sumatra were added. With the addition of the Sunda Island material certain inconsistencies became evident in the recorded distribution of the previously described species. I am indebted to N. C. E. Miller and W. E. China for their generous aid in straightening out these matters and for checking the revised key. It now appears that two species were included under the name Chelonocoris peregrinus Miller. The type is from Aring which is not in North Borneo but in India. The Malayan specimens represent a new species which is described below and dedicated to N. C. E. Miller in recognition of his pioneer work on apterous Aradidae. Another error which was detected by Miller and China is the drawing of the apex of the mesonotum in Chelonocoris malayensis (fig. 5c). Actually the mesonotum forms a continuous ridge in the female as in the male.

    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.

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.

    Description: When revising the genera of Indo-Australian and Papuan Tortricidae (1939) the author was very much in doubt as to the systematic position of the genus Diactenis Meyrick, 1907, referred before to the Tortricidae. It did not fit in that family, neither could it be successfully transferred to any other Tortricoid family known. Through lack of further data the author decided at last to transfer Diactenis to the family Chlidanotidae; the necessity of its removal from the Tortricidae being only too evident. This decision, however, was not very happy, as Diactenis was neither at its proper place in the Chlidanotidae. In the same year (1939) the late T. Bainbrigge Fletcher suggested to the author (in litt.) to erect for Diactenis a new family. Although this seemed a reasonable solution, we esteemed such an action to be premature, our information on the possible congeners of Diactenis being insufficient at that time. Instead, however temporarily, Diactenis was transferred back to the Tortricidae; but at the same time attention was drawn to the close correlation of that genus with two others (1941). Soon afterwards still more new forms of the Diactenis relationship continued coming to our notice, and the conception of this new family began to take shape. It materialized after our study of the excellent collection of Microlepidoptera, brought together by our lamented friend, the late Dr. L. J. Toxopeus, during the Third Archbold Expedition to New Guinea. The results of this study will be published soon. Meanwhile we are satisfied that the information collected during these twelve years is entirely sufficient for carrying into effect the so long

    Description: A study of the collection of Dermaptera in the Rijksmuseum van Natuurlijke Historie at Leiden has been made by the author during the years 1942 and 1943, but publication of the results had to be postponed for several years on account of various difficulties arising during and since the war. These investigations yielded some interesting results, including the descriptions of several new species. It is intended to publish these descriptions in the near future after a study of the literature of the group that has appeared since 1943. Of the subfamily Diplatyinae the material of the Leiden Museum contains specimens of two forms that proved to belong to hitherto undescribed species. Together with other representatives of this subfamily these specimens were sent to Dr. W. D. Hincks of the Manchester Museum, for comparison with the material that formed the basis for his nearly completed revision of the group. Of the two forms referred to above, one appeared to be conspecific with a species to be described by Dr. Hincks in the near future, the other is described in the present paper, in order that notes on this species may be incorporated into the revision of the group.

    Description: In the course of the later years a rather large number of specimens of various groups of insects from New Guinea were among the acquisitions of the Rijksmuseum van Natuurlijke Historie. Shortly after the war the collections made by Professor H. Boschma, during his visit to the Wissel Lakes in 1939 as the zoologist of the expedition organized by the Royal Netherlands Geographical Society (Koninklijk Nederlandsch Aardrijkskundig Genootschap), arrived safely from Bogor (Java) where they had to stay during the German occupation of the Netherlands. Quite recently we obtained the first captures made by Dr. L. D. Brongersma in various places in and near New Guinea. From both collections a number of new and interesting Heteroptera is to be described. A few Oncomerini, belonging to the genera Lyramorpha and Agapophyta, are the subject of the present note. Lyramorpha Subgenus Lyrodes Of the subgenus Lyrodes two new species were collected at and near the Wissel Lakes. The first, which I will name Lyramorpha (Lyrodes) edulis nov. spec.*) (figs. 1-2), shows no definite spot or patch on the corium; the basal corners of the scutellum are yellowish, medially from this yellow spot a distinct dark point is to be seen, except in specimens that are more or less immature. The general colour is more or less castaneous, with inVentral views of the ultimate abdominal segments of: fig.

    Description: The present paper constitutes a report on the Machilidae and Lepismatidae collected by Dr. C. O. van Regteren Altena in the Canary Islands in the spring of 1947. We are much obliged to Dr. van Regteren Altena for allowing us to study these interesting specimens. The first notice on Thysanura from the Canary Islands seems to be the mentioning of Machilis maritima by Lucas (1836-44). Unfortunately it is quite impossible nowadays to identify that species as understood by Lucas. Ridley (1881) mentions three species from the Canary Islands, viz., Lepisma saccharina L., from Tenerife and Gran Canaria; Lepisma mauritanica Lucas, from Las Palmas (Gran Canaria) and Lepisma eatonii Ridley, from Tenerife. L. saccharina has apparently not been found again on the Islands; anyhow we do not see any reason to doubt its presence there. Lepisma mauritanica, actually included in the genus Ctenolepisma, is a species that is rare as well as very difficult to identify; Ridley's specimens were most probably nothing else but dark Ctenolepisma lineata, a species common in the Islands. Finally Lepisma eatonii, whose correct name should be Ctenolepisma lineata eatonii, is nothing more than a colour form of Ctenolepisma lineata, which may not deserve even subspecific rank. Escherich (1905) also mentions Ctenolepisma lineata eatonii from Tenerife. Silvestri (1940) gives the first record for Lepisma myrmecobia Silvestri from the Islands (Gran Canaria and Tenerife). Wygodzinsky (1941) described Dilta insulicola from Tenerife. In the present paper an additional species of Dilta, Dilta altenai sp. n. is described from Tenerife, and several of the formerly known species of

    Description: The Oriental bees of the genus Ceratina Latr. are difficult to identify. Until now our knowledge of these insects consisted mainly of a considerable number (about 90) of isolated descriptions, scattered through several scientific journals. Most of these descriptions are based on colour characters and although these are certainly not without taxonomic value, they must be used with great care on account of their intra-specific variability. The structural and sculptural characters which are much more reliable for distinguishing the species have thus far not received sufficient attention. There exist a few keys, dealing with the species occurring in certain parts of the region, but none of these contains more than 11 species and the characters used are often of doubtful taxonomic value. An attempt to identify a large number of species collected in Indonesia, mainly in Java, by Dr. and Mrs. Lieftinck, my wife and myself, soon demonstrated the necessity of a revision of the Ceratina species described from this and other parts of the Oriental region. It would have been completely impossible to recognize the majority of these species with sufficient certainty from their descriptions. Fortunately I had an opportunity to study much authentic material. In September 1951 I examined the types of several species described by Smith, Cameron, and Cockerell in the collections of the British Museum (Natural History) and the Oxford University Museum ; some additional types, preserved in the Rothney collection in the latter Museum, were kindly sent to me for study at a later date. The U.S. National Museum sent me a very interesting collection of oriental Ceratina, containing several species identified by Cockerell as well

    Description: Records of cave-dwelling Lepidoptera are scarce in comparison with those in other orders of Insects, e.g., Coleoptera, of which even a whole subfamily (Silphidae, Bathysciinae) is in a most remarkable way adapted to this peculiar habitat. In the group of the so-called Microlepidoptera we could find examples of some eight species only, belonging to different families. Apparently none of them is a true cave-dweller, i. e., a permanent resident of caves and really adapted to life in total darkness. Crypsithyris spelaea Meyrick, 1908 (Tinaeidae) only has been regarded as an exception. This species has been described from a large cave in Moulmein, Burma, and originally was reported as "being practically bleached or colourless", but with normally developed eyes and wings (Meyrick, 1908, p. 399). Later on better material has been collected at the same locality, and this time the moth appeared to be not quite colourless (Meyrick, 1916, pp. 602-603). It remains uncertain, therefore, whether there is question of any adaptation to cave-life and whether this species can be regarded as an "obligate cavernicole,, insect, the more so as larvae of closely allied species of this genus have been found living in the open, in portable cases on lichens covering rocks. Furthermore we could find reference to three species of the genus Tinaea: T. antricola Meyr., 1924, and T. pyrosoma Meyr., 1924, both from Siju Caves, Assam, and T. palaechrysis Meyr., 1929, from Batu Caves, Selangor (Malaya). Of the latter was said that it "belongs to the typically unicolorous yellow group, but has probably acquired fuscous colouring as an adaptation to cave life; it may therefore be a true cave-dweller, possibly restricted to these particular caves" (Meyrick, 1929, p. 375). Afterwards, however, Dam-
