Miscellaneous . 42 9 family by all succeeding authors. Philippi also described and figured it as new under the name of Thy reus Paradoxus, Supp. 92. t. 18. f. 11. Having lately obtained a fresh specimen with the animal dried in it, I soaked it in water, and on comparing the remains of the animal with other genera, I believe that the Pedicularia of Swainson should be placed next to Concholepas, if it is more than a section of that genus, for it only differs from that genus in having no tooth -like process on the front of the outer lip, and in the edge of the outer lip being generally sinuous, and the inner or columellar lip being rounded, callous, and covering part of the left side of the last whorl. There is a small white shell in Mr. Cuming's collection from the Philippines which has similar characters, but it is even more like the typical Concholepas than Pedicularia Sicula of Swainson. — J. E. Gray. Descriptions of some new species of Indian Lizards. By J. E. Gray, Esq. Mr. Jerdon of Madras having kindly sent to the Museum a series of specimens of Indian reptiles, I hasten to describe the fol-lowing species, which have not before occurred to me, and conse-quently are not described in my recent Synoptic Catalogue of Rep-tiles in the British Museum. Fam. Geckotid2e. Goniodactylus indicus. — Brown, darker marbled and spotted ; scales of body and tail small, equal, six-sided; of underside of tail rather larger, six-sided; lower lip-shield 5*1*5, square, front larger, equal, rest gradually smaller, last very small. Hab. Madras. Brit. Mus. These were accompanied by four species of Hemidactylus. Fam. Agamid^e. Calotes viridis. Nape with two isolated spines above the ears. Neck without any pit in front of the shoulder, but with dark spots at the hinder part of the lower jaw ; eyebrows not horned. Green ; scales large, of base of tail larger, of limbs and underside of the body smaller, of crown smaller. Nape and shoulders with a com-pressed crest ; hinder part of back and tail with an obscure keel. Hab. Madras. Brit. Mus. Like C. versicolor, but uniformly coloured, the back less crested, and the scales smaller. Salea Jerdonii. The nuchal and dorsal crest formed of elongated compressed scales ; tail with a keeled crest. Blackish, white spot-ted, spot forming distant cross-bands ; lips and beneath white. Hab. Madras. Brit. Mus. This genus is best distinguished from Calotes by the length and acuteness of the keeled scales of the back, side and under part of body, and their being all placed in longitudinal series. The other species has only the nape shortly crested.
