O-J NOVTTATES ZoOLOGICAE XXII. 1915. SOME NEW OR LITTLE-KNOWN HETEROCERA. By Dk. K. JORDAN. (With 3 text-figures.) Family AGARISTIDAE 1. Hespagarista caudata eburnea subsp. nov. (text-tig. 1, 6) (?. Colore eburneo magis extenso distingnemla. Hab. Manow, German East Africa, 1 S, received from Messrs. Standinger and Bang-Haas. The forewing is slightly narrower than in IJ. c. caudata Dew. (IST'J), from Angola, and the posterior antemediau and the snbmarginal spots are larger. The creamy-white area of the hindwiug almost reaches to the base, and the black marijina] band is narrower than in true caudata ; moreover, there is no discocellular spot on the hindwing, and only the subcostal vein is distinctly black, the others bein" black at the marginal band, and the median uervure also at the base. ■-'. Damias amoena rookensis subsp. nov. (text-tig. 'i, i) In Seitz, Grossschm. xi. p. 1:5 (1U12), I treated chalybeata Roths. (1896) and amoena Roths. (1896) as the sexes of one species, because we only had eft? of the one and ? ? of the other. Meek has now sent ns from Rook Island two S S and one ¥ which are practically alike, agreeing almost exactly with the S named amoena Roths. (1896). As it is not probable that the $ is dimorphic, I must reverse my opinion and consider amoena and chaUjheata\ distinct in spite ot the absence of any tangible structural differences.
