    Description: Unter diesem Titel, indessen mit dem Zusatz „unter Benutzung des Materials der Kollektion Eisner, Dahlem" — die Sammlung befindet sich z.Zt. im Rijksmuseum van Natuurlijke Historie, Leiden — haben mein Freund Felix Bryk und ich die Gruppen Parnassius mnemosyne L., P. stubbendorfi Ménétr., P. eversmanni Ménétr., P. nordmanni Ménétr., P. clarius Eversm., P. clodius Ménétr., P. Orleans Ch. Oberth., P. apollonius Eversm., P. honrathi Staud. und A. Bang-Haas, P. bremeri Bremer, P. phoebus F., P. actius Eversm., P. jacquemontii Boisd., P. epaphus Ch. Oberth., P. tianschanicus Ch. Oberth., P. nomion Hb. und einen Teil von P. apollo L. kritisch bearbeitet, bis die Entwicklung der politischen Verhältnisse in Deutschland die weitere Herausgabe der „Parnassiana" durch uns unmöglich machte und dadurch unsere Arbeit unterbrach. Wäre der Weltkrieg nicht ausgebrochen, hätten wir wahrscheinlich einen Weg gefunden, um das uns an's Herz gewachsene Werk schon längst fortzusetzen. Bryk weilt nun in Stockholm, mein Wohnsitz ist Den Haag, die enge Zusammenarbeit der Vergangenheit ist nicht möglich. Ich habe mich deshalb gefragt, ob ich es ohne die Unterstützung von Bryk's tiefem Wissen um die Parnassier und ohne seine kritische Kontrolle wagen kann, allein mit der Revision der Gattung fortzufahren. Ich habe aber das Gefühl, damit doch einen Beitrag zu der Kenntnis dieser interessanten Lepidopteren-Familie leisten zu können, und habe mich angemutigt durch meine Leidener Freunde entschlossen, dies zu tun. Herr Professor Boschma, dem ich dafür zu grossem Dank verpflichtet bin, hat mir angeboten, für die Veröffentlichung meiner Arbeiten in einer Form sorgen zu wollen, die es gestatten wird, diese separat zu sammeln und als Fortsetzung der früheren Veröffentlichung in „Parnassiana" zu ge-

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

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

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

    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.

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

    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. Diplatys sumatranus nov. spec. 1 ♂, Air Njuruk, Dempu, Sumatra, 1400 m, VIII 1916, coll. E. Jacobson. The present specimen is small and slender, of the usual general appearance in this genus (see fig. 1). Colouration: the head and the prozona of the pronotum are castaneous; the same colour, though less dark generally, is shown by the median part of the metazona, the elytra, a band along the outer margins of the wing-scales, Fig. 1.

    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. I, Lyramorpha (Lyrodes) edulis ♂ ; fig. 2, Lyramorpha (Lyrodes) edulis ♀ ; fig. 3, Lyramorpha (Lyrodes) plagifer ♂ ; fig. 4, Lyramorpha (Lyrodes) plagifer ♀ ; fig. 5, Lyramorpha (Diploxiphus) maculifer ♂ ; fig. 6, Lyramorpha (Diploxiphus) maculifer ♀.

    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.

    Description: The genus Podolestes, as far as at present known, is confined to the Malaysian subregion of the Indo-Australian Archipelago. 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

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

    Description: 1. The genus Atheroides Haliday Of this genus 3 Western European species are known : A. serrulatus Hal. (syn. festucae Mordv.?), A. hirtellus Hal. (syn. A. junci Laing) and A. brevicornis Laing. a) A. serrulatus Hal. is quite common. It lives on Poa annua often, but prefers species of grass with narrow, folded leaves, such as Festuca ovina, F. rubra, Nardus etc. b) A. hirtellus Hal. is not rare on Aira caespitosa. It seems to live on that plant only. c) A. brevicornis Laing is extremely common along the muddy seashores of the Netherlands. It prefers Festuca thalassica and F. distans, the two typical species of grass growing there 2). The alatae have not yet been described and therefore I add a short description. The apterae have been described excellently by Laing, but I redescribe them for comparison. Atheroides brevicornis Laing Apterous viviparous female. Morphological characters. Body very elongated oval, nearly linear. Tergum strongly sclerotic, usually uniformly dark, very coarsely corrugated, covered with clubshaped or inverse-bottleshaped hairs with blunt, sometimes emarginate apex; the bases of the hairs look like perforations of the dark sclerite. Head fused with prothorax, but suture very distinct; mesothorax, metathorax and first abdominal tergite free; abdominal tergite II— VII fused, second sometimes partly free ; eighth tergite semicircular, free. Head semicircular; front convex, with one, often normal, spiny hair standing over the base of each antenna; a pair of hairs more towards the middle,

    Description: The family Tettigoniidae consists of the long-horned grasshoppers with a more or less distinct sword-shaped ovipositor and with a distinct auditory organ at the proximal part of the fore tibiae. Handlirsch unites into this family 14 subfamilies of which the Pterophyllinae only are considered here. Concerning the name Tettigoniidae the opinions were diverging, but in recent literature this name is generally used. In the 10th edition of Linné's Systema Naturae (1758) a number of species of the genus Gryllus are united into the subgenus Tettigonia. This subgenus was considered as a genus by Fabricius and it would have been logical if he had kept the Linnean name Tettigonia for it. Fabricius, however, mixed up the Linnean names and called the here-mentioned genus: Locusta. This name has for many years been considered as the correct name of the genus, and Tettigonia L. was used for another group of insects. Stål (1874) placed Tettigonia L. into the synonymy of Locusta F. as both names refer to the same group of species. Linné (1758), however, had given the name Locusta to a group of short-horned grasshoppers; moreover Tettigonia L. has priority over Locusta F. as it had been established earlier. Thus the name Tettigonia L. is the eldest in the group and therefore should be considered to be the type genus and the name of the family should be derived from it. As to the type species of the genus Tettigonia L. Karny (1907) gives a survey of all Linnean species in the genus Gryllus, Tettigonia, and shows that successively all species have been placed into other (new) genera, leaving viridissima L. as the only species in the genus Locusta F.

INTRODUCTION "The discrimination of genera in the Tortricina has always been admittedly difficult; the similarity of type which prevails throughout the group permits only a few small genera to be obvious, and the classification of the large mass of remaining material has to depend upon structural characters which are in all instances either subject to variation or indefinite." Edw. Meyrick, 1913. The study of the Indo-Malayan and Papuan so-called Microlepidoptera in general, and likewise that of the family Tortricidae, goes back to the middle of the 19th century, at which time a few species in the British Museum were described by Walker (1863, 1866). Occasional descriptions by Butler and Moore followed later on and a list of Indian Moths was

    Description: In 1936 five specimens of the beautiful beetle Cicindela saetigera Horn (fig. 1) were collected by Prof. Dr. L. G. M. Baas Becking and Dr. J. Reuter on their journey in Australia and kindly given to the Rijksmuseum van Natuurlijke Historie at Leiden. As this rather uncommon species was new to the collections of the Museum I studied the literature on the species in more detail, especially after Prof. Baas Becking had told me a few details concerning its life conditions. Our specimens, all males, were caught at the following dates and localities: 4 specimens, March 27, 1936. Lake Bumbunga, N. from Bay St. Vincent, S. Australia. 1 specimen, April 15, 1936. Lake Crosbie, SW. from Mildura, N.W.Victoria. First of all I can state, that in most of the papers dealing with C. saetigera Horn there is an indication of the locality: Yorke's Peninsula, but no further details about the exact locality are communicated, except by Sloane (1906, p. 343) : "Wallaroo, on the shores of Spencer's Gulf". Concerning the above-mentioned localities of our specimens Prof. Baas Becking told me that he had found these beetles only on the saltlakes, where they were running and jumping on the bright white saltcrust which covers the greater part of those lakes. They prey on ants there, which live on and under the saltcrust; a rather strange habitat for insects. After Prof. Baas Becking, who investigated these saltlakes thoroughly, the beetles form an interesting link in the local food-cycle therein, which begins with the bacterial life beneath the salt-crust and ends with some lizards and birds of which no animal enemies seem to exist.

    Description: As a result of a trip which I made to S. and C. Celebes in the middle of the year 1936 I am now much pleased to describe a new Brahmaea form, which was sent in by a native collector in one male specimen only. Though abundantly different from Continental species one is forced to see at once the very near relationship between this new form and Brahmaea hearseyi White, as a subspecies of which I will describe it here. Brahmaea hearseyi celebica nov. subspec. (figs. 1 and 2). ♂. Small (wing length 58 mm only). Upperside: groundcolour light greyish buff as in typical hearseyi marked with unsharp brown undulated lines and dark spots much like in that subspecies, but different in the following points: the undulated area of fore and hind wings is filled up with dull uniformous light greyish buff between the undulated lines, whereas typical hearseyi shows a more vivid buff and is bordered basally with a thin white line at each interspace; the inwardly directed points of the undulated lines, which are sharp in hearseyi, are blunt or even rounded in celebica; the marginal parts of both wings are monotonous greyish, but the subapical part of the forewing shows an ochraceous border outwardly and backwardly of the big flat ocellar spot, which ochraceous border is followed inwardly by a faint white zigzag line beneath the elongate deep black apical spot; the white dentate lines which divide the big apical ocellar spot of hearseyi into some 7 parallel bands are reduced to faint white vein spots in celebica but the thin black line of the basal part of that ocellus which runs parallel to the white lines in hearseyi, is threefold and continuous in celebica;

    Description: Dysdercus mendesi nov. spec. Dysdercus spp. 1936, Mendes, L.O.T., Boletim Technico N. 23, Institute Agronomico de Campinas, II, Os "Manchadores" do Algodao, p. 4 pl. I—II. This species is rather similar to D. columbicus m. and to D. brevis m.; the whitish annulation to the ultimate antennal joint is usually indistinct, the pronotum shows no black transverse stripe behind. The third joint of the tarsi, however, is not lighter than the second, the general form is more elongate, the pronotum less broad, the antennae are slightly longer and the membrane is darker, especially at the base. The structure of the male genital segment differs from that of D. columbicus in showing a less pronounced inflexion in the apical edge, the protuberant parts less angular, the transverse furrow on the disk of the segment widened in the middle, ill-defined there. The segment shows a transverse streak of long, soft hairs. From D. brevis on the other hand the species differs in showing a somewhat deeper impression in the apical edge of the male genital segment, and showing more evidently a transverse impression on its disk. Moreover in D. brevis the disk is more swollen under the apical edge, and the protruding parts of the apical edge are sligthly more distant from each other. Also from this species D. mendesi is distinct by its narrower thorax, and by the whitish annulation of the fourth joint of the antennae. Length of the ♂: 10—12 mm; of the ♀ : 12 1/2—14 1/4 mm. On cotton; Campinas January 1936, L. O. T. Mendes, one ♂ and one ♀ Holo- and Allotype; and 13 ♂♂ and 13 ♀♀ Paratypes, representatives of laboratory breeding experiments of the collector.

    Description: Pieris napi L. ♀ gefangen bei Bignasco, Tessin, etwa 450 m hoch, 26. VI. 1931. Die Oberseite der Flügel ist nicht milchweiss wie bei der typischen Form, sondern etwas gelblich angehaucht, wenngleich schwächer als bei der ab. bryoniae O. meistens vorkommt; ihre Wurzeln sind breit schwarz bestäubt. Die Rippen der Hinterflügel sind ausserdem wurzelwärts grau bestäubt. Auf den Vorderflügeln endigen die Rippen an der vorderen Hälfte des Aussenrandes in schwarze, dreieckige Flecke, deren Breite und Dunkelheit nach der Flügelspitze hin zunimmt. Diese ist gleich dem Vorderrande tiefschwarz. Eine submarginale dunkle Binde zieht sich vom Vorder- zum Innenrande; sie ist dort, wo sonst die beiden isolierten Flecken vorkommen, verbreitert; ihre Ränder sind beiderseits verwaschen. Ebenso die Ränder des tiefschwarzen Vorderrandsflecks der Hinterflügel, welcher gross und schwach sichelförmig gebogen ist; denn es ist ein Ansatz zur Bildung einer submarginalen Binde auch auf den Hinterflügeln vorhanden. Die Unterseite der Vorderflügel ist weiss mit gelber Spitze. Die Rippen sind hier schmal schwärzlich bestäubt; die dunkle Binde der Oberseite tritt in ihrer inneren Hälfte sehr deutlich, sonst aber kaum durch. Die Hinterflügel haben unten dottergelbe Färbung und die schwarze Bestäubung der Rippen ist einwarts sehr breit; der Vorderrandsfleck ist hier kaum angedeutet. Der Falter schliesst sich eng an die schwedische ab. continua Bryk 1) an; aber letztere ist nicht so dunkel. Die Brücke zwischen den beiden Flecken der Vorderflügel sowie diejenige zwischen dem oberen dieser Flecken und den Vorderrandsflecken ist weit schwächer, so dass die submarginale Binde

    Description: Over het voorkomen van Thysanoptera in Nederland handelen, afgezien van eenige korte mededeelingen in het Tijdschrift voor Entomologie en de Entomologische Berichten, alleen twee werken van R. van Eecke: „Eerste Bijdrage tot de kennis der Nederlandsche Thysanoptera", Haarlem, 1922 en het deeltje „Thysanoptera" in Fauna van Nederland, Aflevering V, Leiden, 1931. Na het verschijnen van het deel in de „Fauna" is niets meer gepubliceerd over vondsten van Thysanoptera in Nederland. Volgens Van Eecke (1922, p. 6) waren in 1916 en in 1917 reeds 22 soorten voor Nederland bekend. In 1922 en 1931 steeg het aantal tot respectievelijk 37 en 44. De schatting van ongeveer 90 soorten, in 1922 door Van Eecke gemaakt, zal eerder aan den lagen kant dan overdreven zijn. Indien slechts op vele plaatsen regelmatig zou worden verzameld, zouden wij in korten tijd meer inzicht in de Thysanoptera-fauna van ons land kunnen krijgen. In de nu opgestelde lijst is aan de reeds door Van Eecke (1931) opgegeven soorten een aantal nieuwe vormen voor de fauna toegevoegd, welke gedeeltelijk afkomstig zijn uit het materiaal van het Rijksmuseum van Natuurlijke Historie te Leiden, dat mij bereidwillig ter onderzoek werd afgestaan. Voor een groot gedeelte zijn de nieuwe soorten echter gedurende de laatste maanden in de omgeving van Wageningen verzameld. Behalve van de met een * gemerkte nummers zijn van alle Nederlandsche Thysanoptera praeparaten in het Leidsche Museum aanwezig. Waar mogelijk, is in onderstaande lijst bij de nieuw toegevoegde

    Description: In order to give a survey of all the Cassididae that are now known, I have adopted the same method as for the preceding families dealt with in this catalogue (cf. "Zool. Meded.", vol. 14, pp. 224—231, 1932 & vol. 16, pp. 33—59, 1933): besides those species of which the Rijksmuseum van Natuurlijke Historie possesses specimens, I have, as far as possible, also included those species which have been described till now, but of which we possess no specimens. Moreover I have also mentioned the principal synonyms. For the division of this family in genera, subgenera and sections, I have again adopted the system used by Thiele in his "Handbuch der systematischen Weichtierkunde". For the revision of the Australian species the publications of Iredale have proved very useful. Just as in my previous lists, the first letter, indicating the position in the catalogue of specimens of the same locality and collector, is followed by the number of specimens in our possession. After that comes the locality, followed by the name of the collector or donor. If the locality or donor is unknown, I have replaced them by a sign of interrogation. In the case of specimens kept in spirit, the number of the jar takes the place of the letter indicating the position. Genus Cassis Scopoli, 1777 I. Subgenus Cassis s. s. Sect. Cassis s. s.

    Description: I have lately received for determination some very interesting sawflies collected in Java mostly by Dr. J. van der Vecht. The collection contained eight species not recorded in Forsius' recent list of Javan Sawflies (Forsius 1934), six of these being entirely new species. The types of these new species have been deposited in the Rijksmuseum van Natuurlijke Historie, Leiden, Holland; paratypes and duplicate specimens where available have been retained in the British Museum. In addition to these I have added the description of a new species of Anapeptamena given to the British Museum by Dr. C. Ferriére. The additions to the Javan fauna are listed below. ORUSSIDAE Ophrynopus maculpennis (Smith) Bajoekidoel, Banjoewangi, East Java, 1 ♂, IX. 1932, Toxopeus leg. Forsius (1926) suggests that O. loriae (Mantero), and O. trifasciatus (Cameron) (New Guinea), as well as O. sericatus Mocsary (New South Wales) and O. queenslandicus (G. Turner) (Queensland) are synonymous with this species. The Australian species O. sericatus Mocsary, is, however, certainly a very distinct species from O. maculipennis (Smith) as I have indicated in the key below. The Malaysian and Australian forms of Ophrynopus Konow can be distinguished from the Central and South American forms by the fact that segment 3 of the abdomen is about two-thirds as long as segment 2 while in the American forms segment 3 is about half as long as segment 2. In the American species also the ocellar region is usually about as broad as long, the tubercles being arranged in a semicircle behind the

    Description: Some time ago when examining some Batocerini (Cerambycidae, Lamiinae) I was struck by the strange pattern of Apriona fasciata Rits. (cf. Ritsema, Notes Leyden Mus., vol. 20, 1898, p. 87) of which species our Museum possesses a single female specimen, the unique type (fig. 1). Especially the "five naked transverse bands" puzzled me because no indication of such a zebra-pattern is found in any other known species of the genus Apriona. Examining the specimen very carefully I found out that these transverse bands were artificially produced by removing the yellowish scales from the elytra with a sharp object the marks of which are clearly seen under the microscope. This proves

    Description: In June 1932 we received at the Institute for Plant-diseases at Buitenzorg (Java) a number of Coreid bugs, sent by the Adjunct Agricultural Adviser stationed at Wonogiri (Res. Djocjacarta, Central Java), which bugs were reported of causing rather serious damage to Cassava plants (Manihot utillissima Pohl) ; the sending included some damaged plants. The Coreids were sent for identification to Dr. H. C. Blöte, curator of the Leiden Museum, as it was known to me that he was studying this special group of Heteroptera. Recently Dr. Blöte (1935) described the species sent as Dasynus manihotis. It is closely related to another noxious species of Dasynus, some years ago described by China as Dasynus piperis, which is well known by the studies of Dr. J. van der Vecht (1933). Character of the damage. Dasynus manihotis sucks the top parts of the stems of the Cassava plants. Its punction causes the tissues to shrink and the leaves to wither. Soon after the punction the shrunken tissues take a brownish colour, later the leaves wither entirely and drop, and the stems that are much punctured die off. New leaves can develop from the lower part of the stem, but in the meantime growth is much retarded. The illustration (fig. 1) gives a good impression of the damage in its earlier stage. The irregular sunken patches in the lower part of the stem have a light tobacco to chocolate brown colour. The smaller spots between the second and the third small leaves from below are pale brown. Experiments in the laboratory on healthy plants gave the same symptoms. Bionomical notes. The egg is 2 mm long. It is figured on approximately natural size (fig. 2) and enlarged (fig. 3). The colour is pale
