24 Mr. J. O. Westwood's Description VI. Description of another new Species of Paussus, from India, with Notes of other additional Species. By J. O. Westwood, F.L.S., Sec.Ent. Soc, &c. [Read 3d August, 1846.] Notwithstanding all the exertions which I made to render my illustrated monograph of the Pauss'idce, published in the second volume of the Arcana Entomologica, as complete as possible, it is surprising that, in the few months which have elapsed since the completion of that work, no fewer than eight distinct species re-quire to be added to the list. Four of these have been described by Mr. Benson, in a paper published in the Journal of the Asiatic Society of Bengal. Notices of the captures of these species have from time to time been read at previous meetings of this Society, in communications addressed to me by Mr. Benson ; and as many members of the Society may not have the opportunity of consulting Mr. Benson's memoir, I here extract the short Latin characters which he has given of his four new species. Sp. 1. Paussus Baconis, Benson. (Section A. Prothorax quasi bipartitus.) (Sub-sect. a. Antennarum clava postice baud excavata.) P. livido-succineus ; antennarum articulo basali, clavae angulis margineque, prothoracis lateribus posticis, femoribus, podice, elytrorumque plaga magna communi, piceis; abdomineelytro-rumque marginibus, tibiis tarsisque castaneis ; antennarum clavd obliquo-triangulari, basi emarginata, in spinam longio-rem externe product^, postice late impressa, cavamine rugoso. Nearly allied to P. riifitarsis ; but instead of the four short tufts of hair on each side, and two at the apex, the elytra are margined with long recurved spinous setae, sometimes double, of which there are seven on each side, and a double row, with four in each row, at the apex of each elytron. Taken by Dr. J. F. Bacon in the Dehra Dlioon, at the foot of the sub-Himalayan range, between the Ganges and Jumna, on the 14th August, 1844, in a sweeping net, among grass and bushes, at the same time as a specimen of Paussus pilicornis.
