    Description: The genus Liporrhopalum was described by Waterston in 1920 for a single female collected in Peradeniya, Ceylon, by A. Rutherford on 1. viii. 1913 "on laboratory table"; this became the type species as L. rutherfordi. The identity of the host fig species remained unknown until I collected specimens very similar to this species in Hong Kong (Hill, 1967a & b) from Ficus tinctoria Forst. f. ssp. gibbosa (Bl.) Corner. The Hong Kong species was separated from L. rutherfordi, mainly on biological grounds, and was named L. gibbosae Hill. The main reason for this separation was that of host difference, but the number of lamellae on the mandibular appendage also differed (i.e. four and five or six). According to Corner (1965) the subspecies gibbosa of Ficus tinctoria occurs no farther west in S.E. Asia than Malaya, Thailand and the South Andaman Islands (fig. 35), whereas the subspecies parasitica (nominate variety) is found throughout India and Ceylon (fig. 34). Hence it is reasonable to assume that the host fig for L. rutherfordi was a tree of Ficus tinctoria ssp. parasitica (Willd.) Corner var. parasitica, and so the slight differences between the respective female wasps were accepted as specific characters. Recently, collections of fig-wasps have been made by Professor E. J. H. Corner in Borneo (1961 & 1964), New Guinea (1960 & 1964), and the Solomon Islands (1965), and by Dr. J. T. Wiebes in the Philippines (19641965); this together with material collected by Professor Dr. J. van der Vecht in Java in 1954 represents the sampling of a wide selection of Ficus species from subsection Palaeomorphe. As can be seen from table 1, there are thirtynine species or varieties of Ficus comprising subsection Palaeomorphe, of section Sycidium, and the present study includes wasps from sixteen of these

    Description: G. Haude hat in 1912 (Soc. ent., 17:75-76) Kailasius charltonius bryki nach 2♀ vom Nilang-Pass, S.O. Kaschmir aufgestellt. Seine Beschreibung ist unzulänglich. Er vergleicht in der Hauptsache seine beiden Stücke, eines davon f. atroguttata Bryk, unter anderem mit dem damals wenig bekannten Arttypus, gibt aber die karakteristischen Merkmale der Unterart kaum an. Das hat wohl dazu geführt, dass Staudinger und Bang-Haas jahrelang die K. charltonius aus dem Bashar-State-Gebiet als K. charltonius bryki Haude auf den Markt brachten. Auch ich habe solche Exemplare kritiklos als subsp. bryki in meine Sammlung eingereiht, allerdings 1959 in Parnassiana nova xxvi (Zool. Meded., 36: 251) ein ♂ vom NilangPass als Topotype bei subsp. bryki Haude aufgeführt. Die Determination einer grösseren Anzahl charltonius vom Nilang-Pass (ex coll. British Museum), die einen karakteristischen habitus zeigen, hat mich auf den Irrtum aufmerksam gemacht. Meine beiden Exemplare aus dem NilaValley, die ich in Parnassiana xxvi (1959, Zool. Meded., 36:250-251) erwähnte und beschrieb, verglich ich mit der K. charltonius charltonius Gray Type, die laut N.I. Riley aus Kumaon stammen soll. Diese Beschreibung gibt die Merkmale der Unterart gut wieder; ich habe ihr lediglich hinzuzufügen, dass die Costalozelle des ♂ nicht immer verschwärzt ist, und dass das zweizeilige Analband des ♂ auch rotpigmentiert auftritt. Die ♀ Type der Unterart befindet sich in Sammlung O. Bang-Haas. Ich betrachte ein ♂ aus dem Nila-Valley ex coll. British Museum als Allotype der Unterart. Bryk äusserte bei der Behandlung der subsp. bryki Haude in 1935 (Das Tierreich, Parnassiidae pars 2:705): „Die Falter aus Spiti nordwestlich von

    Description: Whilst engaged in revising the Aethiopian species of Cerceris Latreille, 1802, the author had pleasure in identifying a small collection belonging to the Rijksmuseum van Natuurlijke Historie, Leiden, kindly submitted to him by Dr. M. A. Lieftinck. This collection comprised specimens collected in Aethiopian territories, North Africa and Corsica, the North African and Corsican species having been personally collected by Dr. Lieftinck. A subsequent study of the Corsican material led to the discovery of an apparent new subspecies of Cerceris sabulosa (Panzer, 1799) (Philanthinae, tribe Cercerini) and it is fitting that Dr. Lieftinck is honoured here with this subspecific discovery. Cerceris sabulosa lieftincki subspec. nov. Female: 11 mm long. In coloration very much the same as that of the nominal subspecies, Cerceris sabulosa sabulosa (Panzer, 1799); except that the fourth tergite is completely black and the yellow markings on the sternites are confined to very small lateral maculae on the second and large lateral areas of the third sternite, similar to that of Cerceris sabulosa algerica (Thunberg, 1815). The flagellum is blackish with faint traces of dark ferruginous on the underside. The propodeum is without lateral yellow maculae. Structurally, especially the clypeal and pygidial shapes and proportions, C.s. lieftincki is the same as the nominal subspecies, but there is a marked difference in the puncturation, sufficient to separate C.s. lieftincki subspecifically from Cerceris s. sabulosa (Panzer), and Cerceris sabulosa algerica (Thunberg). The differences lie in the formation of the punctures on the tergites, as follows: the punctures on the second tergite follow the same reticulate pattern of C.s. sabulosa, but are distinctly larger and placed slightly

    Description: EINE NEUE UNTERART VON KORAMIUS ACDESTIS GRUM-GR. (Tafel 1 figs. 1-2) Beim Studium der Koramius acdestis Grum-Gr. aus einer Determinationssendung des British Museum (Natural History), fiel mir sofort ein dieser Art angehöriges 3 ? auf; es wurde von J. B. Tyson, einem der Teilnehmer an der West-Nepal-Expedition des British Museum, in Jung-Jung Khola, Tibet, in 16000 ft. Höhe am 7. Juli 1953 erbeutet. Der habitus diesen c52 kommt am nächsten dem von Koramius acdestis whitei Bingham, unterscheidet sich indessen sichtbar von den von dieser Unterart und von den anderen aus Tibet/Nepal bekannten Unterarten. Ich führe deshalb dieses Pärchen als Koramius acdestis lux subsp. nov. ein. 3 Holotype 27 mm, 5 Allotype 24 mm; Tafel 1 figs. 1-2. Die karakteristischen Merkmale dieser Unterart sind der für einen acdestis sehr helle Flügelfond, aus dem alle Zeichnungselemente sehr klar hervortreten, die starke Rückbildung der bei dieser Art sonst sehr ausgebreiteten Hinterrandsschwärze, der im Verhältnis zur Grösse des Pärchens grosse rote Hinterflügelwurzelfleck und die grossen, dünn schwarzumringten Ozellen. Sexuell nicht digryph, Befransung weiss. Im Vorderflügel, der längs Vorderrand und Wurzel massig, beim 3 ein wenig stärker, grauschwarz überpudert ist, mit schmaler, sich verjüngender Marginale bis zur Flügelrundung, kräftiger Submarginale bis über Cu 2, mittelbreitem Subcostalbändchen bis M 2, das mit dem schrägstehenden, bescheidenen Hinterrandsfleck dünn verbunden ist. Endzellfleck länglich, kräftig, Mittelzellfleck schmal, erreicht die untere Discoidale nicht. Im Hinterflügel die kontinuierliche Marginale sehr schmal, die Submarginale vorn schmal bis M 2, hinten mit vier blaugekernten Augen ausgebildet. Die Ozel-

    Description: De hieronder volgende gegevens zijn gebaseerd op twee belangrijke zendingen insecten-materiaal van Terschelling, die beide in 1967 werden bijeengebracht. In de eerste plaats betrof dit het materiaal dat door vier preparateurs van het Rijksmuseum van Natuurlijke Historie te Leiden was buitgemaakt tijdens een verzamel-excursie van 5-19 juli. De deelnemers waren de heren : C. van Heijningen (leider), Ph. Pronk, W. Planjer en M. J. Delfos. Zij verzamelden in verschillende terreinen van het eiland en maakten op 12 juli ook een dagtocht naar Vlieland. In totaal werden 5372 insecten gevangen, behorende tot de volgende orden: Orthoptera 40, Dermaptera 1, Odonata 110, Heteroptera 455, Psocoptera 2, Neuroptera 39, Trichoptera 10, Lepidoptera 144, Diptera 2309, Coleoptera 917, Hymenoptera 1345. Hiervan zijn thans de Odonata, Neuroptera en Trichoptera bewerkt. De tweede belangrijke zending van Terschelling was afkomstig van de heer G. Dijkstra Hzn., die met de vanglamp van mei tot september bij het Biologisch Station verzamelde en door bemiddeling van het Rivon te Zeist mij de hierin gevangen Neuroptera en Trichoptera welwillend ter beschikking stelde. Hierin kwamen voor: Neuroptera 3 en Trichoptera 81 exemplaren. Tenslotte bleken in de collectie van het Museum te Leiden enige Trichoptera aanwezig te zijn van het eiland Schiermonnikoog, verzameld op licht door Prof. Dr. J. van der Vecht in augustus 1962. Uit deze vondsten kwamen zoveel nieuwe gegevens voor de Wadden-eilanden tevoorschijn dat het verantwoord leek deze gegevens door publicatie voor de faunistiek vast te leggen. Ter documentatie wordt het materiaal van genoemde orden in de collectie van het Rijksmuseum van Natuurlijke Historie te Leiden bewaard. Gaarne betuig ik mijn welgemeende dank aan allen die hieraan hebben mee-

    Description: The study of many new samples of fig wasps collected in Africa by Dr. J. Galil of Tel-Aviv University, Israel, revealed the unexpected fact that Ceratosolen arabicus Mayr and C. galili Wiebes develop together in the same receptacles of Ficus sycomorus L. Dr. Galil made experiments on the host relations of these species and other inhabitants of the Sycomore receptacles, the results of which will be published by him. The identification of the Agaonidae and the Torymidae Sycophagini from Dr. Galil's catches, and some notes on their distribution, are given in the present paper. Unless otherwise indicated, all samples here recorded were reared from Ficus sycomorus L. (det. Galil). The insect material is preserved in the Rijksmuseum van Natuurlijke Historie (abbreviated RMNH in the text). Other abbreviations used are: BM (British Museum, Natural History), NMW (Naturhistorisches Museum, Wien), OUM (Oxford University Museum, Hope Department of Entomology), and USNM (United States National Museum).

    Description: In 1883 J. M. F. Bigot described Speghina? macropoda after one female from "Birmania". Bigot used to place a question mark after the generic name when he was not sure that the described species did belong to the genus in question. The not forwardly produced oral margin, the presence of a facial tubercle, the spinose hind femora, and the wing-venation created a doubt about the correct use of the name Sphegina. He thought macropoda might need a new genus. De Meijere (1908) erected the new genus Spheginobaccha with Sphegina macropoda Bigot as type-species. He recorded one ♂ and one ♀ from Semarang, Java. He described both specimens and figured the wing. Though in many respects his female answered to Bigot's description of the female, De Meijere found also minor differences. Brunetti (1923) recorded S. macropoda (Bigot) from India on the score of Bigot's specimen from Burma, but he did not know the species. The given description of macropoda is a compilation from that by Bigot and that by De Meijere. However, in the same work Brunetti (p. 120) recorded six males and four females, and figured the male abdomen, of his Baccha robusta. According to Hervé-Bazin (1923) this should be the same as S. macropoda (Bigot). This may be right as Brunetti's description of Baccha robusta does not contain anything contrary to that of Bigot. It is strange, however, that Brunetti did not mention the spinose hind-femora and the curious venation of the wings. Finally, Hull (1937) described Spheginobaccha melancholia after two females from Cochin-China.

    Description: It has generally been accepted that the Philippine Islands are inhabited by only a single species of the Eumenid genus Rhynchium. In Miss Baltazar's valuable catalogue (1966) it is listed as a subspecies, atrum Saussure, of R. haemorrhoidale (Fabr.). However, when in 1963 I examined an extensive collection of Eumenidae from these islands in the U.S. National Museum, Washington ), the available material of this genus proved to consist of two very similar, though readily separable, species. The question thus arose, to which of these should be applied the name atrum Saussure. This species was described from "Les Indes Orientales, les Iles de la Sonde, la Nouvelle Guinée [Warou]. (Musée de Paris)". Unfortunately I did not find any specimens of this certainly rather heterogeneous series in the Paris Museum, and I therefore had to rely on a comparison of my material with the original description. It appeared that this description is almost certainly based on one or more specimens from the Philippine Islands, for it applies better to one of my two Philippine species than to any other of a great number of forms from various parts of the Oriental region. In order to establish the identity of R. atrum with certainty, however, I have considered it desirable to designate a neotype for this species. The material discussed in this paper is preserved in the following collections. AMNH = American Museum of Natural History, New York, U.S.A. BISH = Bernice P. Bishop Museum, Honolulu, Hawaii, U.S.A. BPI = Bureau of Plant Industry, Manila, Philippines. CNHM = Chicago Natural History Museum, Chicago, Ill., U.S.A.

    Description: The collection of Cetoniid Coleoptera in the Rijksmuseum van Natuurlijke Historie at Leiden contains, next to the usual assortment of chafers from various sources, several collections made by well-known specialists. Most important is the one made by F. T. Valck Lucassen (including the collection of O. E. Janson), acquired by the museum in 1940. A world collection of Cetoniidae is being arranged on the basis of this Valck Lucassen material. In 1928, the collection of G. van Roon was bequeathed to the museum, where it is to remain as such, not incorporated in the main collection. The data of the collection will be presented in this and forthcoming parts of a catalogue, accompanied by such revisional notes which it seems desirable to publish. Reference is here made to Junk's Coleopterorum Catalogus (Schenkling, 1921); in general, citations given by Schenkling will not be repeated in this series. Acknowledgements Thanks are due to the following persons, who communicated data or gave specimens in loan, from the collections under their care viz., Dr. C. A. W. Jeekel, Zoölogisch Museum, Amsterdam; Messrs. R. D. Pope and M. E. Bacchus, British Museum (Natural History), London; Dr. H. Roer, Zoologisches Forschungsinstitut und Museum Alexander Koenig, Bonn; Dr. G. Scherer, Museum G. Frey, Tutzing bei München. Goliathus Lamarck, sensu lato There is some confusion over the classification of the African Cetoniidae belonging to, or related to Goliathus Lamarck, due to extreme splitting and to inadequate knowledge of the correlation of the sexes.

    Description: In der Gattung Trissexodon Pilsbry gehören nach Pilsbry (1895: 288) und späteren Autoren die beiden rezenten Arten T. constrictus (Boubée) und T. quadrasi (Hidalgo). Wenz (1923: 457-458) wählte T. constrictus zur Typusart und stellte zugleich noch zwei fossile Arten, T. subconstrictus (Souverbie) und T. plioauriculatus (Sacco), in derselben Gattung. Germain (1929: 205) hat darauffolgend T. plioauriculatus zur Typusart einer neuen Gattung Protodrepanostoma gemacht. In dieser Gattung rechnete er auch P. planorbiformis (Sacco), ebenfalls eine fossile Art. Zilch (1960: 694) betrachtete schliesslich Protodrepanostoma als jüngeres Synonym von Trissexodon. Eine anatomische Untersuchung der beiden rezenten Arten hat ergeben, dass diese durchaus nicht nahe verwandt sind und in zwei verschiedenen Gattungen gehören. Es war darum notwendig für Τ. quadrasi eine neue Gattung zu errichten. Für Protodrepanostoma folge ich die Auffassung Germain's was P. plioauriculata angeht. P. planorbiformis möchte ich, wie Wenz (1923: 455) lieber zu Helicodonta rechnen. In Jugoslawien wurden vor mehreren Jahren in der Umgebung von Virpazar einige unbeschriebene Arten von Höhlenschnecken festgestellt, die in einigen Sammlungen unter Trissexodon eingeordnet wurden. Es handelt sich dabei um Vertreter der Pupillidae, Spelaeodiscinae, die in einer anderen Arbeit beschrieben werden. Die Verwirrung um Trissexodon ist zurückzuführen auf die Überwertung eines einzigen Merkmales, nämlich der Besitz einer Parietallamelle, wodurch die beiden Enden des Mundrandes verbunden werden. Eine solche Parietal-

    Description: VARIA Hypermnestra helios Nick. In Parnassiana nova xxvii (1959, Zool. Meded., 36: 292) erwähnte ich bei der Karakterisierung von H. helios persica Neuburger, dass O. BangHaas daran zweifelte, ob die Ausbeuten von Christoph auf seiner Sammelreise von Krasnowodsk nach Schakuh (Scharich) im Elbrus getrennt gehalten wurden, sodass der habitus der Stammform von H. helios helios Nick. und der von subsp. persica Neuburger nicht deutlich festgestellt ist. Dr. M. J. Falkovitch vom Zoologischen Institut Leningrad brachte aus Bŭchara in diesem Frühjahr erbeutete 12 ♂ 4 ♀ von H. helios mit, die er mir schenkte. Als ich diese flüchtig betrachtete, bemerkte ich, dass ich einen Teil dieser Exemplare zu subsp. maxima Gr.-Gr., den Rest als zur Stammform gehörig ansehen würde. Dr. Falkovitch entgegnete, dass ich offenbar die Verschiedenheit der beiden Biotope, von denen die H. helios stammen, richtig erkannt hätte. Die letzterwähnten Exemplare kommen von Ispas, 70 km. nordwestlich Chardshou, einem feuchten Gelände in Flussnähe, Futterpflanze Zygophyllum fabago; die anderen sind gefangen bei Ajakguzhumdy, 40 km. östlich Dsingh, Kysylkum, Pastuchoro, trockener Steinwüste, Futterpflanze Zygophyllum portulacoides. Ich kann nunmehr den Zweifel von O. Bang-Haas gut verstehen und bin mir bewusst, dass man in Zukunft die Einordnung nicht auf reiner geographischer Grundlage vorzunehmen haben wird, vielmehr den Biotop des Flugplatzes wird berücksichtigen müssen. Die stark verschiedene Grösse der einzelnen Populationen hat die Determination vielfach zweifelhaft gemacht, beispielsweise zur Aufstellung der

    Description: The collection of Cetoniid Coleoptera in the Rijksmuseum van Natuurlijke Historie at Leiden contains, next to the usual assortment of chafers from various sources, several collections made by well-known specialists. Most important is the one made by F.T. Valck Lucassen (including the collection of O.E. Janson), acquired by the museum in 1940. A world collection of Cetoniidae is being arranged on the basis of this Valck Lucassen material. In 1928, the collection of G. van Roon was bequeathed to the museum, where it is to remain as such, not incorporated in the main collection. The data of the collection will be presented in this and forthcoming parts of a catalogue, accompanied by such revisional notes which it seems desirable to publish. Reference is here made to Junk's Coleopterorum Catalogus (Schenkling, 1921); in general, citations given by Schenkling will not be repeated in this series.

    Description: The genus Eujacobsonia, with its type species E. mirabilis, was described by Grandi (1923, 1924) from three female specimens caught at light in Sumatra. Many more examples from the same locality, Fort de Kock ("Bukittinggi", ca. 100 km north of Padang), were recorded by Grandi in 1928. Eujacobsonia was classified by Grandi in the tribe Sycophagini (Agaoninae), which, as was recently suggested (Wiebes, 1961), should be regarded as a subfamily in the Torymidae. Joseph (1964) accommodated the genus in the nominate tribe Sycophagini, but in the same year (Wiebes, 1964) it was referred to the Otitesellini. Recent material in the collections of the Rijksmuseum van Natuurlijke Historie, Leiden (RMNH) was reared by Prof. E. J. H. Corner from the receptacles of Ficus depressa Bl. in Selangor, Malaya, and Ficus annulata Bl. in North Borneo. Several light catches from Thailand, North Borneo, and the southern islands of the Philippines were sent to me for identification by the Bernice P. Bishop Museum, Honolulu (BMH), the Universitetets Zoologiske Museum, Copenhagen (material collected by the Noona Dan Expedition 1961-1962 1); ZMC), and by the United States National Museum, Washington (USNM). Thanks are due to Prof. Corner, and to Drs. C. M. Yoshimoto, B. Petersen, and B. D. Burks, for their kind help in making this material available for my study.

    Description: INTRODUCTION Of this genus, originally described from Japan, but apparently widely spread in the tropical and temperate parts of the southern hemisphere, only seven species are known. However, since the four species on Podocarpus all seem to infest only one or two species of their host plant genus, many more Neophyllaphis may exist, for there are about 50 more species of Podocarpus that have to be searched for aphids. The genus Chileaphis Essig, 1953 from Chile differs from Neophyllaphis almost only by the apterae viviparae having compound eyes, but because compound eyes are also present in apterous oviparae of Neophyllaphis, I consider Chileaphis at most a subgenus of Neophyllaphis.

    Description: Wie ich schon auszuführen Gelegenheit hatte, sind die durch den Handel in die verschiedenen Sammlungen gelangten Parnassius aus Centralasien meist mit ungenauen, undeutlichen, sogar falschen Fundortetiketts versehen. Ich habe daher den Empfang einiger Serien centralasiatischer species aus dem Pamir und dem Hissar-Gebirge, die A. Tzvetajev gesammelt hat, sehr begrüsst; aufgrund sehr genauer Fundortdaten kann ich eine bessere als die bisher bekannte Karakteristik von subspecies dieser Arten geben. Kailasius charltonius vaporosus Avinoff Der Autor hat diese Unterart 1913 in Hor. Soc. ent. Ross. 40 (5): 16 beschrieben und auf T. 2 fig. 2 ein ♀ abgebildet, das A. Hohlbeck in Darwas orient. erbeutet hat (von etwas weiter westlich in Darwas stammt die ♀ Type von Tadumia autocrator Avinoff). Avinoff hat später, 1915 in Trans. ent. Soc. London (3, 4): 359 auch das ♂ dieser Unterart beschrieben und die Allotype T. 54 fig. E abgebildet, ohne dafür den genauen Fundort zu nennen. Da in meiner Sammlung ein ♂ und ♀ stecken, die ich Herrn Avinoff verdanke, habe ich Grund anzunehmen, dass die Lokalität des typus der Vischarvi-Pass, Darwas ist. Bryk hat diese beiden Exemplare 1935 in Das Tierreich, Parnassiidae 2: 715-716, fig. 688, 688a abgebildet. Ein Vergleich mit der mir vorliegenden Serie beiderlei Geschlechts von Chorog, Shugnan-Gebirge, 4000 m, Pamir, lässt ohne jeden Zweifel den Schluss zu, dass diese charltonius zu der subsp. vaporosus Avinoff gehören. Avinoff hat in seiner Beschreibung schon darauf hingewiesen, dass die Unterart zwischen princeps Honrath (Synonym von subsp. romanovi Grum Grshimailo) und den Avinoff damals bekannten „indischen" charltonius steht, dass sie princeps Honrath aber am nächsten steht.

S. van der Goot, département d'Entomologie, Zoölogisch Museum, Amsterdam, que nous remercions pour son amabilité. Nous avons pu étudier aussi les collections du Rijksmuseum van Natuurlijke Historie, Leiden, mises à notre disposition par M. P. J. van Helsdingen et du Natuurhistorisch Museum, Maastricht, prêtées par M. D. G. Montagne; des renseignements complémentaires nous ont été en outre communiqués par le Dr. W. J. Kabos d'Amsterdam. Notre gratitude va aussi à ces collègues. Depuis le travail de Kabos (1960), la taxonomie des espèces du genre Hybomitra Enderlein a évolué; il est donc nécessaire de revoir la faune des Pays-Bas suivant les conceptions actuelles.

    Description: INTRODUCTION During an investigation into the causes of mortality of the harbour seals (Phoca vitulina L.) in the Dutch Wadden Sea (Van den Broek & Wensvoort, 1959; Van den Broek, 1963), heterophyid trematodes have been regularly collected from the intestines. Crytocotyle lingua (Creplin, 1825) was rather common. Often together with this trematode a second, less conspicuous species was found, which appeared to belong to the Ascocotyle species complex. The taxonomy of this complex is very complicated and has recently been reviewed by American authors: Burton (1958) and Sogandares & Lumsden (1963). The present author prefers to follow the traditional opinion as expressed by Hutton & Sogandares (1958) in dividing the complex into several genera. The new species possesses the following fundamental characters: (1) spines surrounding oral sucker placed in a single row, (1) vitellaria confined to postovarial region, (3) uterus not extending in front of ventral sucker, (4) cuticle spinous on forebody only. These characters are used to distinguish the genus Phagicola Faust, 1920, from Ascocotyle Looss, 1899, sens. strict. (see Price, 1936; Burton, 1958). The species therefore is placed here in the genus Phagicola. Phagicola septentrionalis n. sp. Diagnosis (all measurements in μ). — Body elongate, consisting of a rather narrow anterior part (50-70 % of total body length) which gradually widens into a rounded posterior part. Body length 600-1000, maximum width 160-250. Cuticle spinous on anterior part of body, up to level of gonocotyl. Mouth surrounded by a single row of 16 to 20 spines of about 10-18 length. Width of oral sucker: 45-60. Dorsal lip not triangular but broadly rounded.

    Description: Im Rijksmuseum van Natuurlijke Historie, Leiden, befand sich eine Anzahl noch von Grouvelle determinierter Exemplare der Gattung Aphanocephalus Wollaston, die bei meiner Revision dieser Gattung (John, 1956, Ent. Blätt. 52) nicht berücksichtigt werden konnte, da das Material mir damals nicht ausgeliefert wurde. Erst jetzt konnte ich die Käfer prüfen dank der freundlichen Hilfe von Herrn Dr. Wiebes. Das vorgelegte Material enthielt neben wenigen von Grouvelle und mir beschriebenen Spezies einige falsche Determinationen und Zuweisungen, welche zeigen, dass die Discolomidae (= Notiophygidae) den Coleopterologen noch weitgehend unbekannt sind. Dabei zählt die Familie, welche Sharp als letzte seiner 13 Unterfamilien der Colydiidae auffasste (1895, Biol. Centr.-Amer. Col. 2: 495) bis jetzt 16 Gattungen mit z.T. zahlreichen Spezies (siehe John, 1954, Ent. Blätt. 50, und John, 1959, Genera Ins. 213E). Zudem sind die Mitglieder der Familie, trotz ihres verschiedenartigen Aussehens, leicht kenntlich durch den Besitz von offenen Drüsenporen, von denen sich zwei am Rand des Pronotums und mindestens sechs am Rand der Elytren befinden. Ferner sind die drei Hüftpaare nur als kleine gleichgrosse Kugeln sichtbar. Hinsichtlich der Gattung Aphanocephalus, welche den Pazifik und die Randgebiete der Kontinente — ausser Amerika — besiedelt, ist das tropische Afrika als Lebensraum hinzugekommen. Für den Pazifik allein sind bisher über 90 Spezies nachgewiesen worden, diese Zahl ist als gering anzusehen, da erst wenige Teile erforscht sind und fast jede Insel eigene Spezies besitzt.

    Description: Lépidoptère éclosant précocement et d'ordinaire très localisé, le ,,semiapollon" des anciens auteurs échappe souvent aux recherches des entomologistes; nous pensons donc utile de publier au sujet de ce parnassien, les observations suivantes. Monts du Cantal Le premier, nous semble-t-il, à signaler brièvement la présence du Parnassius mnemosyne dans les Monts du Cantal, fut notre ami H. de Lesse ( 1949, Revue franç. de Lépid. 12: 59). Plus récemment (1962 à 1966), nos collègues H. Descimon et J. Thébaud comme nous-même avions la chance de retrouver en petit nombre ce papillon au Puy Mary et au Lioran dans les premiers jours de l'été. Indiscutablement, c'est à la forme montdorensis Kolar, qu'il convient de rapporter les huit spécimens des deux sexes que nous avons examinés; toutefois quelques ♂ offrent certains traits de subsp. vivaricus Bernardi & Viette, à savoir une certaine obliquité de la macule cellulaire antérieure et la présence d'une tache discale aux ailes postérieures. Envergure: 49 à 55 mm. Drôme M. Testout, lorsqu'il décrivit l'apollon du Vercors et du Diois, n'a pas mentionné l'existence du P. mnemosyne dans ces montagnes. Il s'y trouve cependant, ainsi que le prouvent quatre spécimens que nous avons sous les yeux, grâce à l'amabilité de M. H. Chazaly; ces individus (au nombre desquels une ♀) ont été capturés en juin-juillet 1963-64, dans la Montagne de Glandasse, au-dessus de Châtillon-en-Diois et dans la région de Lus-la-CroixHaute. Encore que géographiquement assez éloignée du massif du Pelvoux, où vole la subsp. ceuzensis Eisner, cette population en présente la plupart

Diese Individualaberration sei als forma inornata et ocelloextincta nova, festgehalten. 1 ♂ Holotype in coll. mea in Sammlung Rijksmuseum van Natuurlijke Historie, Leiden. Parnassius mnemosyne montdorensis Kolar forma anglardi nova Einige Jahre lang verdanke ich Monsieur A. Anglard, Clermont-Ferrand, Serien von P. mnemosyne von der Base-Sud du Puy de Dôme. Diese konnte ich regelmässig mit den gleichen Jahrgängen P. mnemosyne aus dem MontDore-Gebiet vergleichen, die ich von Monsieur Ph. Planeix empfing. Ich sehe davon ab, mich im folgendem auch auf die Typenserie von P. mnemosyne montdorensis Kolar zu beziehen, da diese, wie ich bereits in 1966, Zool. Meded. 41: 147 (Parn. nova XXXIX) äusserte, extreme, nicht dem Durchschnitt entsprechende Exemplare der Unterart befasst. Beim vergleichen mit dem gemittelten Habitus der P. m. montdorensis Kolar lassen die P. mnemosyne von der Base-Sud du Puy de Dôme folgende Unterschiede erkennen. Das Glasband im Vorderflügel ist oben breiter, verjüngt sich meist abrupt bei M2, mit sehr schmaler Fortsetzung bis Cu 1. Die lunulae sind deutlicher. Die ♀ sind überwiegend dichter beschuppt, weniger hyalin verdunkelt, die Augenflecke schwächer ausgeprägt. Die Biotope der Puy de Dôme mnemosyne liegen niedriger, niemals höher als 1000 m.

    Description: Parnassius apollo transiliensis subsp. nov. wird von mir, die forma altitudinis talgarica nov. wird von K. F. Sedych und mir beschrieben. Parnassius apollo subsp. transiliensis Eisner (nova) Die Beschreibung von Parnassius apollo merzbacheri durch Fruhstorfer (1914, Soc. Ent. 21: 139) ist unverantwortlich vag gehalten; sie lautet: „Parnassius apollo merzbacheri nom. novum für P. sibiricus Verity t. 9 f. 9 ♀ p. 48, 1906. P. hesebolus Austat p. 191/192 partim, 1889, Tianschan. Austats ungemein präcise Beschreibung und Veritys Figur beweisen, dass der Tian-Shan eine indogene apollo-Rasse beheimatet, die sich von allen apolloFormen durch die breiteste schwarze Ozellenperipherie auszeichnet und den scharf abgesetzten breiten Glassaum, der lebhaft kontrastiert mit der gelbgrauen, mässig beschuppten Grundfärbung. Benennung zu Ehren unseres grossen Alpinisten und Asienreisenden Dr. Merzbacher, der den eigentlichen Hochgipfel des Tian-Shan, den Khan-Tengri, entdeckte". Der habitus des ♀ von Kuldja, auf das Fruhstorfer sich basiert, und das Austat pl. 6 fig. 2 abbildet, weicht von dem habitus des ♀, das Verity pl. 9 fig. 9 als „P. apollo sibiricus Nordm. Monts Tian-chan orientaux", recht erheblich ab. Das ? von Kuldja zeigt im Vergleich mit dem durch Verity abgebildeten Exemplar einen gelblichen Flügelfond, eine längere, besser ausgeprägte Submarginale, nicht so starke Schwarzfleckung and schmälere Ozellenumrandung. Die Grundfarbe des letzteren ist grauweiss. Zunächst ist festzustellen, was Fruhstorfer augenscheinlich nur unklar ausgedrückt hat, dass der Name „merzbacheri" nicht etwa den von „sibiricus" ersetzen, sondern nur für den zum sibiricus-Kreis gehörenden P. apollo aus dem Tian-Shan gelten soll.

    Description: INTRODUCTION In this catalogue — entitled "provisional" because our knowledge of the subject is still so evidently incomplete — all species of Ficus mentioned as hosts of fig wasps, are listed with the Hymenoptera Chalcidoidea reared from their receptacles. The names used for the Agaonidae are in accordance with those in Grandi's (1963b) world catalogue of this Chalcidoid family, two items excepted for nomenclatorial reasons, viz. Blastophaga (B.) inopinata and B. (Eupristina) jacobsoni. Blastophaga (B.) puncticeps distinguenda Grandi (1916a: 129), if considered conspecific with B. (B.) inopinata Grandi (1926: 355), should be called B. (B.) d. distinguenda Grandi, while B. (B.) puncticeps sensu Grandi (1916a: 129) not Mayr (1906: 156), should be indicated as B. (B.) distinguenda inopinata Grandi. The name Eupristina jacobsoni Grandi (1926: 358) cannot be used now that Eupristina Saunders is reduced to a subgenus of Blastophaga Gravenhorst (Grandi, 1963b: 334), Grandes name being preoccupied by B. (Waterstoniella) jacobsoni Grandi (1916a: 126). I suggested the need for a replacement name to Prof. Grandi, who left the renaming to me. I propose Blastophaga (Eupristina) adempta nom. nov. for B. (E.) jacobsoni Grandi. The Chalcidoidea of the family Torymidae, subfamily Sycophaginae, and most of the other inquilines, should be thoroughly revised before a critical list of their host preferences can be presented. Their nomenclature is not very stable as yet. The name Philotrypesis ornata Grandi (1930: 82), synonym P. unispinosa sensu Grandi (1921b: 128; 1926: 361) not Mayr (1906: 175) is preoccupied by P. unispinosa ornata Grandi (1921b: 137),

    Description: Da ich den Abschluß der als 11. Beitrag zur Kenntnis der Protaetia-Arten geplanten Revision der Protaetien des Festlandes von Südasien aus technischen Gründen verschieben mußte, veröffentliche ich hier die Beschreibungen einer neuen Art und Rasse aus diesem Gebiet, dann einer neuen Rasse von Madagaskar und den benachbarten Inseln einer indischen Art und endlich einige Bemerkungen über Protaetien und zwei verwandte Gattungen. Die Abbildungen zu dieser Arbeit wurden von Frau Fadila Softić-Harović verfertigt. Protaetia wiebesi spec. nov. Unter dem Namen Protaetia alboguttata (Vigors, 1826, Zool. Journ. 2: 238, pl. 9 fig. 3) wurden bisher zwei, besonders durch den Bau der Hinterschenkeln und Parameren sehr gut differenzierte Arten vermengt. Zu P. alboguttata (Vigors) wurde als Synonym P. saundersi (Bainbridge, 1841/43, Trans, ent. Soc. London 3: 219) gezogen. Es tauchte nun zuerst die Frage auf, ob sich beide Namen auf dieselbe und auf welche der beiden Arten beziehen. Der Typus der P. alboguttata (Vigors) ist leider nicht sicher nachzuweisen2). Die Originalbeschreibung paßt ziemlich auf beide Arten, doch verweist die Angabe „nigro-viridis" auf die Art mit einfachen Hinterschen1) 52. Beitrag zur Kenntnis der Scarabaeiden. 2) Laut Arrow (1910, Fauna of British India: 163) befindet sich der Typus der Cetonia alboguttata Vigors im British Museum. Doch wurde ich bei meiner Anfrage auf das Macleay Museum in Sydney verwiesen. Von dort teilte mir Frau Jenny Anderson brieflich mit, daß sich in den Sammlungen kein als Typus bezeichnetes Exemplar der C. alboguttata Vigors befindet.

Only few species from this region have been incorporated in Clarke's (1958) monograph of Meyrick's types in that museum, viz. those described in 1938; lectotypes for these species have been selected by Clarke. Other species from the above-mentioned islands, described by Meyrick in his "Revision of the Australian Tortricidae" (1910-1911) and in the "Exotic Microlepidoptera" 3 and 4, have not yet been treated in this way. In the present paper the species of the tribe Olethreutini in the Meyrick Collection are listed and lectotypes are selected. Most species obviously

    Description: VARTA Parnassius apollo manleyi Wyatt Von dieser Unterart, die C. Wyatt, 1964, Zeit. Wiener Ent. Ges. 49: 154-156 beschrieben und dort Tafel 17 fig. 1-2 die Allotype und Holotype abgebildet hat, konnte ich 5 ♂ 5 ♀ Paratypen erwerben. Der subsp. marteni Eisner, mit der der Autor die neue Unterart vergleicht, ist diese nicht sehr ähnlich; sie gleicht vielmehr stark der subsp. ardanazi Fern. (subsp. kricheldorfi Eisner, deren Synonym). Ich habe allen Zweifel, ob sich subsp. manleyi als gute Unterart erweisen wird, nachdem ich die 5 oben erwähnten Paare mit den in meiner Sammlung befindlichen Vertretern der subsp. ardanazi Fern. verglichen habe. Parnassius mnemosyne puschlavensis Eisner Nachdem ich dieses Jahr oberhalb San Carlo, Puschlav, Graubünden, Schweiz, in etwa 1100 m Höhe, eine etwas grössere Serie P. mnemosyne gefangen habe, glaube ich unter Hinweis auf die Beschreibung in Parn. nov. xviii: 1 (1958, Zool. Meded. 36) und Parn. nov. xxxv: 25 (1964, Zool. Meded. 40) eine bessere Karakteristik der Unterart geben zu können. Sie zeigt in beiden Geschlechtern deutliche lunulae, die Hinterrandsschwärze ist nicht ausgebreitet, dringt nicht in die Zelle und erreicht nicht die Analzone. ♂ 27-32 mm, ♀ 29-32 mm. ♂ mit im Vorderflügel breitem, sich bei M 3 stark verjüngendem Glasband bis Cu 1. Costalfleck einzellig. Endzellfleck oblong, Mittelzellfleck erreicht die untere Discoidale nicht. Hinterflügel mit mässigem Medianfleck, meist ohne Analflecke. ♀ im Vorderflügel mit noch breiterem Glasband bis Cu 1, Costalband bis Μ 1, deutlichem Hinterrandsfleck.

    Description: In 1913 A. von Schulthess published under the title "Parapolybia Saussure" a revision of the Old World social wasps which in general appearance are similar to certain species of the American genus Polybia. Only a few months later R. du Buysson described some new species of "Polybia" from Asia and created a new genus Polybioides for one African and two Oriental species. Apart from the treatment of two African species of Polybioides in Bequaert's excellent work on the Vespidae of the Belgian Congo (1918; see also Bequaert, 1922) this group of wasps has since then received little attention. A detailed study of the Oriental wasps which at different times have been described or recorded as Polybia has led me to the conclusion that many of these belong to the genera Polistes and Ropalidia, and that the Old World genera Polybioides and Parapolybia are represented in the Oriental region by only four and three species, respectively. The confused taxonomy of these wasps is well illustrated by the fact that Von Schulthess's genus Parapolybia contains, in addition to four species now regarded as correctly placed under this name, two Polybioides, one Polistes and two Ropalidia. Du Buysson described the two sexes of a mimetic Polistes (imitator of Polybioides) as different species of Polybia (actually an exclusively American genus), and he used for the true Parapolybia the name Stelopolybia Ducke, another genus which is restricted to the New World. The relations between Parapolybia and Stelopolybia have remained obscure for a long time, and recently Richards & Richards (1951: 70) stated that no reliable character had been proposed to separate Parapolybia Saussure from Stelopolybia Ducke.

    Description: INTRODUCTION This study was undertaken to prepare keys to the European species of the genus Trychosis Foerster. The older keys by Schmiedeknecht (1890 and 1904-1906), mostly based on Tschek's keys in his study of the genus Cryptus (1870b), do not lead to satisfactory results. This is due to the fact that several characters used by Tschek are not critical, while several of the species described by him have turned out to be identical with others. Nevertheless Tschek's pioneer work in this group deserves our admiration. When I had advanced somewhat with the interpretation of Tschek's type material, I became curious about the species described by some other authors, viz. Thunberg, Gravenhorst and Thomson. I had the opportunity to study some of their type specimens. It should be said here that probably the Gravenhorst collection at Wroclaw (Poland) still has some surprises in store, but I had no opportunity to study the collection in situ. There still remain some species inquirendae, these are listed on page 39. ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS It is a pleasure to thank the following persons : Dr. Max Fischer, Naturhistorisches Museum, Vienna, for loan of the Tschek Trychosis collection; Mr. Sten Jonsson, Uppsala Universitet, for loan of a Thunberg type specimen; Mr. W. J. Pulawski, Zoological Institute, Wroclaw, for loan of several Gravenhorst type specimens; Fil. lic. Hugo Andersson, Dept. of Entomology, Lund University, for loan of C. G.

    Description: C'est en 1921 que Lestage a créé le genre Polyplocia pour un Euthyplociide du Tonkin, P. vitalisi. En 1939, Ulmer a décrit, de Bornéo, deux espèces supplémentaires, P. campylociella et P. crassinervis. En 1953, j'ai montré que les deux espèces de Bornéo ne devaient en réalité en faire qu'une. Ni Lestage ni Ulmer ne connaissaient le stade larvaire des Polyplocia. Il m'est aujourd'hui possible de le décrire, grâce à M. le Dr. M. A. Lieftinck (Leiden) que je remercie très vivement de m'avoir donné cette occasion. L'identité spécifique de cette larve n'est pas connue; c'est à titre provisoire que je la rapporte à P. crassinervis.

    Description: Während nächtliches Sammeln am Licht in Suriname (Süd-amerika) im Jahre 1962, fing ich ein Männchen von Protambulyx strigilis (L.) das, zu meiner Überraschung, stridulieren konnte. Beim Abtöten des Schwärmers mittels direkter Einspritzung von Alkohol im Thorax, wodurch eine blitzschnelle Immobilisation der Flügel und Beine erreicht wird, fing das Tier an zu zirpen mit einem klaren „zietie, zietie, zietie...". Als ich daraufhin die Motte näher an das Licht brachte, sah ich am Hinterleib, welches nach einer solchen Einspritzung noch einige Zeit am Leben bleibt, das letzte sichtbare Segment, nämlich die Valven, ein und ausschieben, im gleichen Rythmus wie der Laut produziert wurde. Durch diese Beobachtung war ich im stande das Stridulationsorgan ohne weiteres zu lokalisieren. Ausser das bekannte „Pfeiffen" des Totenkopfschwärmers, Acherontia atropos (L.), das offenbar auch eines anderen Mechanismus zu Grunde liegt und das von beiden Geschlechtern erzeugt werden kann (Wagner, 1836; Landois, 1874; Prell, 1920; Dumortier, 1960), war mir kein anderer Fall von Stridulation bei Imagines von Sphingiden bekannt. Und auch in den üblichen entomologischen Handbüchern war nichts darüber zu finden. Aus der darauf von mir vorgenommenen Literaturuntersuchung ergab sich aber, dass über Laute, hervorgebracht von anderen Sphingiden als Acherontia, verschiedene Wahrnehmungen aufgezeichnet worden sind, von den die meisten aber nicht näher untersucht wurden. So berichtet Krüger (1877): ,,Mehr oder weniger schwächere Töne [als die von Acherontia] vermögen noch von sich zu geben : der grosse Weinschwärmer (Sphinx Elpenor), der Wolfsmilchschwärmer (Sph. euphorbiae), der Ligusterschwärmer (Sph. ligustri), der Fichtenschwärmer (Sph. pinastri), der Windenschwärmer (Sph. con-

    Description: Landmarks on the distal segments of the female Chalcidoid gaster are the spiracular peritremata of the eighth urotergite, and the pygostyli of the ninth. The eighth and ninth sterna bear the first and second valvulae, which form the effective ovipositor and its sheath, respectively. The ninth moreover bears the third valvulae, commonly called the valves of the ovipositor. Most Chalcidoid Hymenoptera of the family Torymidae have a long ovipositor, in some instances several times as long as the body. Comparative study of fig wasps of the subfamily Sycophaginae shows that the great length of the ovipositing organs in different groups, may have been acquired by different means. The characters of these structures of the females appear to be correlated with various characters of the males. The characters of the males are only shortly mentioned in the present paper. Those of the female ovipositing organs are here taken as criteria for a tribal classification of the Sycophaginae. One nomenclatorial remark precedes the enumeration of the tribes. Saunders (1883a: 11 ff.), on the presumption that the fig wasps should be transferred to "a more congenial sphere, by restoring them, as heretofore, to the vegetable-feeding" Cynipoidea, classified several genera in the subfamilie Sycophagides. Blastophaga Gravenhorst, Agaon Dalman, Sycocrypta Coquerel, Eupristina Saunders, Pleistodontes Saunders, and Kradibia Saunders were assigned to the first division, Prionastomata Saunders ( Prionostomata in Saunders, 1883b : v), a synonym of Agaonidae Walker (1846: 23); Sycophaga Westwood and Apocrypta Coquerel to the second, Aploastomata Saunders (Haplostomata), a synonym of Sycophagoidae Walker (1875: 16). Apart from these "fig insects proper", Saunders

Bang-Haas (no. 694). VORWORT Schon im Alter von 8 Jahren begann ich mit dem Sammeln von Schmetterlingen. Die Parnassier, die in meiner oberschlesischen Heimat nicht vorkommen, waren mir Jahre lang nur aus Abbildungen bekannt. Erst als Neunzehnjähriger erbeutete ich die ersten Parnassius apollo und P. phoebus im Engadin, die, ohne besonderes Interesse für diese Arten, meiner Sammlung einverleibt wurden. Erst nach dem ersten Weltkriege weckte eine Auswahlsendung, in der sich vor allem auch asiatische Parnassier befanden, mein Interesse für deren grosse Variabilität; doch arbeitete ich auch noch weiter am Ausbau anderer Familien meiner Sammlung. Die grosse Veränderung trat erst ein, als ich mit meinem Freund Felix Bryk, dem Altmeister der Parnassiologie, in Kontakt kam, seine typenreiche Sammlung übernahm, und in gemeinsamer Arbeit mit ihm in „Parnassiana" die „Kritische Revision der Gattung Parnassius" begann. Die Jahre 1930 bis 1938 waren dem intensiven Studium aller Parnassiiden, deren wir habhaft werden konnten, gewidmet. Der zweite Weltkrieg unterbrach Bryk's und meine Zusammenarbeit, die nach dem Kriege nur sporadisch durch gelegentlichen Meinungsaustausch fortgesetzt werden konnte; Bryk lebte in Stockholm, ich in Den Haag. Meine Sammlung fand ich am Ende des zweiten Weltkrieges wohlbehalten im Rijksmuseum van Natuurlijke Historie, Leiden, vor. Der ein-

Für die Erstbeschreibung dieser Art durch Snellen lagen zwei ♂ Exemplare aus dem südwestlichen Celebes vor. Eines davon ist voll entwickelt und gelangte in der Originalarbeit zur Abbildung, das andere ist etwas verkrüppelt. Ersteres soll im folgenden als Lectotypus festgelegt werden. Beide Stücke befinden sich im Museum Leiden einschliesslich des Genitalpräparats, das angefertigt wurde. Herrn Dr. A. Diakonoff, Leiden, möchte ich an dieser Stelle danken, dass er mir die Untersuchung des Lectotypus ermöglichte. Die in der Originalarbeit von Snellen vorliegende Beschreibung und Abbildung wurde überprüft und mit dem vorhandenen Exemplar verglichen, wobei gute Uebereinstimmung zwischen dem Typus und der Beschreibung sowie der Abbildung in seiner pl. 9 fig. 6 festzustellen war. Man kann deshalb auf eine Wiederholung der Beschreibung verzichten. Hier werden nur jene Merkmale dargestellt, die von Snellen nicht untersucht wurden, die für die heutige Systematik der Psychiden aber von wesentlicher Bedeutung sind. Das Tier hat eine Spannweite von 40 mm, die Vorderflügel sind im Vergleich zu anderen Eumeta-Arten ziemlich schmal und gestreckt (vergleiche fig. 1). Der Apex ist spitz, der Aussenrand verläuft sehr schräg und geradlinig und der Innenwinkel ist sehr scharf ausgebildet. Nach der Methode von Bourgogne (1955) wurden Messungen zur Relation der Flügelmasse vorgenommen. Die Relation CD: AB ergab sich zu 0,457. Der Innenwinkel ACB beträgt 1130.

    Description: INTRODUCTION The genus Metrocoris Mayr comprises a small, distinct group of waterstriders, mainly inhabiting the Old World tropics. They are to be found on the surface of mountain streams and pools in the jungle. In general they are apterous, but in most species a small percentage of the individuals may have fully developed wings. The species have been little collected and are generally rare in collections. The specimens in early collections are often either single females with eggs, or one male and one female — generally with copulatory organs still partly extended — which fact may suggest that it is very difficult to catch specimens, except when they are less quick or attentive. An extensive description of the genus was given by Matsuda (1960: 302-304). Keys to the genus are to be found in the paper by Kenaga (1941: 170) and that by Hungerford & Matsuda (1960b: 7). When studying the material of these insects in the Leiden Museum, I found that the structures of the male genitalia supply useful characters for distinguishing between the species. Within the species these organs appear to be constant. Dissections were made by clearing the posterior abdominal segments in KOH (10%) for approximately 12 hours. The dissections were mounted in "terebinthina laricina" on glass slides of 9 by 14 mm, which were then fastened on the same pin as the specimen. This has the great advantage of keeping specimen and dissection together. It soon became evident that this study would be impossible without the examination of the material preserved in other museums. Upon my request

    Description: During the past year I have had the opportunity of examining several interesting collections of Scolytidae and Platypodidae from Ghana, Ivory Coast, Kenya, Nigeria and Uganda, as well as most of Dr. E. Mjöberg's older collections made in Sarawak. It is more convenient to deal with new species, and notes on others, all in this one paper, rather than in several short papers. SCOLYTIDAE NEW RECORDS FROM THE IVORY COAST A large collection made by Dr. L. Brader at Adiopodoume, by means of sticky cloth traps, between September 1962 and February 1963, includes a considerable number of species that have not previously been recorded from the Ivory Coast. The following two species are of particular interest. Hypothcnemus rugifer Schedl (in press). This recently disordered species has, as far as I am aware, been known from only two short series, both from Uganda. A single specimen is included in Dr. Brader's Adiopodoume collection. Hypothcnemus obscurus (Fabricius). The first African record of this species, which is widely distributed in tropical America and the eastern United States. A specimen from this series was sent to Professor S. L. Wood, who has kindly taken the trouble to confirm my identification and has commented: "It is quite typical of specimens taken in the northern part of its range in the United States. Before the specimen arrived, I suspected it would be the variety that has spread westwards across the Pacific Ocean (Stephanoderes hivaoea Beeson), and I was rather surprised to find that it was not that form." Dr. Brader's collection contained a good series of this species,

Corner sent two samples of wasps from figs of the other section, Adenosperma Corner. Both samples, from Ficus adenosperma Miquel and Ficus verticillaris Corner, contained species of Ceratosolen Mayr related to the wasps from section Sycocarpus Miquel subsections Auriculisperma Corner, Theophrastoides Corner 1) and Papuasyce Corner. When more species of the same facies become known, it may be necessary to create a new species group for their reception. For the time being, they are placed in the Ceratosolen armipes-group. A note on the tarsal protuberances in the males as a group character in Ceratosolen, follows the descriptions of the species. Ceratosolen adenospermae nov. spec. (fig. 1-16) Material. — Series ♂, ♀, Lae, Terr. New Guinea, 17.vi.1964, ex Ficus adenosperma Miquel var. chaetophora (Warburg) Corner (leg. et det. E. J. H. Corner); coll.

    Description: En 1875, R. McLachlan décrivit Ephemera orientalis d'après un unique exemplaire ♂, capturé au Japon par P. F. von Siebold. Depuis lors, l'espèce a été signalée à nouveau, non seulement du Japon, mais de Sibérie orientale, et ce par divers auteurs. Mais aucune iconographie n'en a été donnée. En 1952, O. A. Tshernova a fait remarquer que toutes les citations de Ephemera lineata Eaton pour des captures en Asie orientale, continentale autant qu'insulaire, étaient erronées et devaient être étiquetées: Ephemera amurensis Navas. L'auteur russe envisage également la possibilité d'une synonymie E. orientalis = E. amurensis, mais, faute de matériel de la première espèce, ne peut se prononcer. Grâce à l'amabilité de M. le Dr. M. A. Lieftinck, que je remercie très vivement, j'ai pu examiner le spécimen holotypique de E. orientalis déposé dans les collections du Rijksmuseum van Natuurlijke Historie, de Leiden. Cet exemplaire n'est plus aussi complet qu'il l'était lors de sa description originale. Les cerques manquent, ainsi que la majeure partie des gonostyles, la patte I gauche et les pattes droites II et III. La patte I droite est fort abîmée et n'a plus de tarse. Quant à l'abdomen, il est détaché et incomplet. Les ailes gauches sont à peu près complètes, celles de droite étant moins bien conservées. Pour en permettre l'étude, et pour sauver ce qui pouvait encore l'être, j'ai monté les diverses parties de cet holotype en préparations microscopiques sur lames de verre; seuls, la tête et le thorax restent conservés à sec. L'exemplaire typique de E. orientalis McLachlan est un ♂ imago, mais il avait conservé de larges fragments de pellicule subimaginale. Le bord externe des quatre ailes (fig. 1a) est rembruni (assez faiblement); les ailes

    Description: WAS IST PARNASSIUS CAESAR? Die Literatur, Parnassius actius caesar betreffend, ist nicht nur uneinheitlich, sondern auch irreleitend. Als Autor von Parnassius actius caesar wird bald Grum-Grshimailo, bald Staudinger genannt. Als sein Fluggebiet wird meist Ost-Tianschan (Berge von Korla und Kuruk-tag) und Fergana angegeben, aber auch eine Anzahl anderer Lokalitäten, wie Naryn, Karagaitau, Dzharkent und andere mehr. Eine Erörterung dieser Tatsache bei Besichtigung des P. actius-Materials der Sammlung Eisner hat uns veranlasst, die Frage „Was ist Parnassius caesar?" eingehend zu prüfen. Die erste Erwähnung eines Parnassius caesar findet sich in dem Artikel von Grum-Grshimailo, 1885, „Bericht über meine Reise in das Alai-Gebiet" (in Romanoff, 1885, Mém. s.1. Lép. 2: 247), in dem er mehrere Colias- und Parnassius-Arten anführt, die er am Kisil-Art (Kyzyl-Art) — Pass (Transalai) gesammelt hat, darunter Parnassius actius und Parnassius caesar. Die Beschreibung dieses „caesar" den er als neue Art ansieht, ist sehr dürftig. Sie lautet: „ ... Ρarn. Caesar m., eine herrliche, ganz einzig stehende Art unter den Parnassiern der palaearktischen Fauna, welche sehr auffallend in Färbung und Anzahl der rothen Augenflecke variert (auf den Vorderflügeln 4 bis o) ...". Als zweiter Autor erwähnte Elwes Parnassius caesar in 1886 (Proc. Zool. Soc. London 1886: 41): „Another new form, named, but not described, by the same explorer Grum-Grshimailo, is Parnassius caesar, which was found at Kizil Art, on the Alai Pamir plateau, at a great elevation, and said to be a splendid, quite unique species of great variability, and will no doubt be soon published in the Grand Duke Nicholas's 'Mémoires sur les Lépi-

    Description: The group of the Aradidae was largely made accessible by the excellent work of R. L. Usinger & R. Matsuda (Classification of the Aradidae, London 1959). It gave me the possibility of revising the collection of the Rijksmuseum van Natuurlijke Historie, from which already some species had been described by C. J. Drake and R. L. Usinger before. As a consequence of their ecology, the collecting of Aradidae is not very easy. The work done by the numerous collectors for our museum resulted in a medium-sized collection from a restricted number of localities, as in some cases the number of individuals in one capture is very high, and for the rest the captures are incidental only. A single remark may be made regarding the drawings in this paper. Many specimens offer a notable asymmetry; in those cases I have not symmetrized the figure by turning the half of it, as this often would have changed the total aspect. In one case, where the right side is hidden by incrustations and rubbish, the drawing shows the left side only. The data are given as found on the labels. Only in exceptional instances is the information translated into English, or the name of the locality transcribed. Again I am much indebted to the staff of the British Museum (Natural History), for assistance during my stay in the Hemiptera section. l SODERMINAE Isodermus gayi Spin. 1-3.

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.

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.

    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. Abdomen pale yellowish brown, at the dorsal surface with light browngrey markings, except on the last three tergites. Ventral surface paler, especially the last three segments. Stigmata in or near a faint black or grey spot. Cerci and filum terminale silver-white, rather densely covered with stiff, long, silvery hairs, except at the base of these caudal filaments, where the colour passes into a very light brown, whilst here the hairs abruptly become much shorter, and are placed more densely. Anterior legs grey-brown, median and posterior legs pure white with a very faint yellowish spot at the end of the femora. Wings vitreous, veins light grey, except subcosta and radius, which are dark grey-brown. Area subcostalis very light ferruginous. Measurements: body Q 3.5 mm wing Ç 2.9-3.0 mm

    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.

(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.

    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-

    Description: I. Grouping of European species of the genus Astata Latr. It is not my intention to anticipate in this paper a subgeneric division of the genus Astata 1). For the purpose of such division, it would be necessary to investigate more non-European material than at present is at my disposal. But at first view it seems to me that the European species may be divided into four distinct groups, which may be separated with the key given below. Two of the proposed groups (the stigma-group and the tricolor-group) form part of the subgenus Dryudella Spinola, as this subgenus has generally been understood; nevertheless, the differences between these two groups, namely in the shape of the clypeus and, in the females, in the habitus, seem to justify separating them; although, investigation of allied non-European species might make it necessary to adapt or to modify the key to the groups. Eventually, the possibility that non-European intermediate forms will make the separations untenable cannot be absolutely excluded. A decision about the taxonomic rank of the proposed groups, therefore, must be postponed. Spinola (1843, P- 135), erecting the genus or subgenus Dryudella ("une nouvelle coupe, qu'on appellera genre ou sous-genre, selon les principes qu'on aura adoptes dans la nomenclature binominale"), based the "nouvelle coupe" on the wing venation of "Dimorpha cincta Perris" and separated it from "Dimorpha" 1) "par la troisieme cubitale, lunulee comme dans les "Lyrops" 2) et par la premiere nervure recurrente, qui s'anastomose avec la nervure transversale qui separe la premiere de la seconde cubitale". However, in these critical features, Spinola was incorrect in several respects. Even excluding stigma and its near allies from Dryudella (Spinola himself never

Nous y avons ajouté l'étude de quatre espèces du British Museum (N.H.) et une du Museum de Paris. HÉPIALIDES DE LA NOUVELLE GUINÉE On connait quelques Hépiales décrites de Nouvelle Guinée. Elles appartiennent au magnifique genre Oenetus H.S. et au genre Oxycanus Walk, (s.l.). On trouvera ici l'étude de quelques espèces appartenant à ce dernier genre. Grace à l'amabilité de Mr. J. D. Bradley du British Museum (N.H.), que nous remercions, les quatre espèces décrites par Joicey et Talbot (1917) ont pu etre étudièes. Paraoxycanus n. gen. Ce nouveau genre, très proche du genre Oxycanus Walk, ne comprend jusqu'à présent, à notre connaissance, que quelques Hépiales néo-guinéennes classées jadis dans le genre Porina Walk. Tindale (1936) a montré que ce dernier nom était préoccupé et que, de plus, il était synonyme d'Oxycanus Walk. L'espèce type de ce genre a été fixée par Kirby (1892) comme étant australis Walk. Ayant trouvé que l'armure génitale male des espèces étudiées était différente de celle d'australis Walk. nous devons créer ce genre. On pourra comparer les figures 7 et 8. La nervation est la meme que celle du genre Oxycanus Walk. La patte prothoracique porte un strigil. Les antennes ne sont pas fortement bipectinees, mais seulement avec un petit bouquet de soies a l'apex de chaque article.

Descriptions and drawings of structural details of four species are to be found in two of the writer's previous papers on Malaysian dragonf lies, viz.: New and little known Odonata of the Oriental and Australian Regions. Treubia, 15, 1935: 177-183, fig. 1-3. Descriptions and records of South-East Asiatic Odonata (II). Ibid. 17, 1940: 347-350, fig. 4-5. The species of Podolestes have been found in marshes and along muddy creeks flowing through wooded areas in low country. Owing to their retiring habits the insects are but seldom encountered and all species are rare in collections. Little or nothing is known of their life-histories, and the larva is still unknown. The six known members of the genus, two of which are here described for the first time, may be distinguished by the following Key to the species. 1. Dorsum of thorax uniform metallic bronzy black. Labrum, mandibles and genae shiny black. Ante-alar triangles bronzy-black, unmarked. Nervure Ac situated much nearer Ax2 than Ax1; nervure Ab complete, meeting Ac at the wing-margin. Quadrilateral short, markedly widened distally, costal and distal sides approximately equal in length in fore wing. Three to four postquadrangular antenodal cells. Male anal appendages of slender build, blackish in colour; superior pair a trifle longer than the inferiors; apex of inf. app. expanded, truncated and slightly notched 2. —. Dorsum of thorax with two pairs of light-coloured spots on mesepisternum, and sides with an oblique band extending from below the spiracle upwards as far as the dorsal

    Description: CONTENTS Introduction............... 3 Systematic survey of the Limacidae of the central and western Canary Islands 5 Biogeographical notes on the Limacidae of the Canary Islands . . . . 21 Alphabetical list of the persons who collected or observed Limacidae in the Canary Islands.............. 31 Literature............... 32 INTRODUCTION In the spring of 1947 I was so fortunate as to join for some 9 weeks the Danish Zoological Expedition to the Canary Islands. During my stay I collected materials for the Rijksmuseum van Natuurlijke Historie at Leiden, paying special attention to the land- and freshwater Mollusca. This paper contains the first results of the examination of the Mollusca collected. My Danish friends Dr. Gunnar Thorson and Dr. Helge Volsøe generously put at my disposal the non-marine Mollusca they collected during their stay in the Canaries. When the material has been worked up, duplicates will be deposited in the Zoological Museum at Copenhagen. I am indebted to several persons who helped me in various ways in the investigations here published. Prof. Dr. N. Hj. Odhner (Stockholm) very kindly put at my disposal a MS list of all the Mollusca of the Canary Islands and their distribution, which he had compiled for private use. Mr. Hugh Watson (Cambridge) never failed to help me by examining or lending specimens, and in detailed letters gave me the benefit of his great experience. During my stay in Paris in March 1950 Dr. G. Ranson and Dr. A. Franc put at my disposal for examination the Canarian slugs present in the Muséum

    Description: Part of the butterfly collection of Mr. P. Zondervan, who died in a Japanese camp, was saved from destruction during the Japanese occupation and the post-war troubles and finally came into my hands. The material is for the greater part still in an excellent condition and contains many interesting forms. The number of specimens is small, as it was Mr. Zondervan's habit to mount only one pair of any new species he collected. The bulk so remained in papers and these all got lost. Here follows an account of some interesting Pieridae. Appias (paulina) urania (Wall.) Tachyris urania, Wallace, "Eastern Pieridae", Trans. ent. Soc. 6 (3) 3 (1867), Tondano, mountains of N. Celebes (♂). Appias urania, Martin, D. ent. Zeits. Iris, 91, 1919. 1 ♂, Tondano, 17.7.1939, 1 ♀, Tondano, 9.1937; 1 ♂, var. albata Hopff., Tondano, 22.12.1939. The ♀ seems to be very rare, though it shows up in rather good numbers in other places of the paulina area in the favourable season, which is at the end of the wet monsoon. It would have been waste of paper to mention these captures, were it not that Mr. Zondervan captured another ♂ specimen of the paulina complex which is so deviating from the above that anybody first seeing it would conceive it as belonging to a distinct species. It represents the leis (Hbn.) group of paulina (Cram.) in the Celebes district, just as urania Wall., together with some local races from the Lesser Sunda Is., is the general representative in the Archipelago. In other words, there has been some overlapping in Celebes, and one more species duplex must be added to the
