44 Mr. Robert Templeton's Notes XIII. Notes ujion Ceylonese Lepidoptera. By Robert Templeton, Esq., R.A. [Read 5th October, 1846.] The lime trees in Ceylon are occasionally nearly destroyed by the caterpillars of the true PapUionidce, namely, Papilto Polym-nestor, rammon, Polydorus and Hector; but most particularly by the caterpillars of P. Pamnion, which strips the trees com-pletely, but this is rare. Very many other Lepidoptera feed likewise on the genus Citrus, but do no harm as far as I have observed. I have both sexes of P. Miitius, the females are larger and the markings more developed. I have plenty of P. Polydorus and also P. Polytes. I have both sexes of P. Pammon ; the male has a little white mark near the anal angle of the posterior wing ; the female an ocellus exactly resembling that of P. Polytes ; all the other markings are the same in both, except in the females they are larger and longer. One half of my specimens of P. Crino ? have the green band exactly divided by the closing nerve of the discoid area ; in the remainder it is broader and quite clear of the nerve, but there is no other distinction that I can observe either in the ocellus of the posterior wings or in the lunules ; the latter variety has the abdomen rather larger and I suspect it to be the female. The male of P. Epiiis is without the blue lunule, the female has it ; and both sexes vary in having or not having one or two spots outside the closing nervure of the discoid cell of this lower wing ; beneath, the markings in both are nearly identical, lunule and all. I have a Diadema intermediate between Bolina and Auge, the female of which has the apical angle of the same colour as the rest of tlie wing, ti'aversed by black veins. I believe the brown specimens of Cethosia to be the males, as the large blue ones have much the most tumid bodies. I have a new beautiful Limenitis ? near Procris, dark purple velvet, paler at the margins of the wings, with red patches across the discoid area, and white spots in a curved fork near the apex ; hind wings with a double row of black spots along the exterior margin band with crimson towards the exterior angle, and a similar dot behind the anal one ; all the spots are crimson beneath except the white ones. Charaxes, Nos. 104 and 105, are certainly sexes of the same species, the latter I think the male;* the pupa case is nearly globular, and is * No. 105 is Charaxes Bernhardiis, No. 104 is Charaxfs Psaphon, Westw.
