370 NOTES ON THE SUBFAMILY BRACHYSCELINjE, WITH DESCRIPTIONS OF NEW SPECIES.— Part V. By Walter W. Froggatt, F.L.S. (Plates VIII. -IX.) Since the pul)lication of my last contriluition to the study of gall-making coccids, several important papers dealing with this subject have appeared. Among them is a rather extensive one upon Australian Galls* by C. H. Riibsaamen, illustrated with many plates, in which he describes a number of new species; whereas if he had been able to examine more material he would have found that most of them were only variable forms of species already described. Maskell's Cylindroccus amplior he has re-named Crocidocysta froygatti, forming a new genus for its reception, though, as Maskellf points out, there can be no doubt about the identity of this common gall. Comparing his descrip-tions and plates I consider that three or four of his new species are identical with others already described. I also refer my readers to Maskell's remarks upon Riibsaamen's proposed alteration of the name of our well-known genus Brachyscelis to Apiomorpha. Towards the end of 1893 Tepper,| in a paper read before the Royal Society of South Australia, described a number of coccids, some of which had been given MS. names by Olliff before that date, but as it was not until 1896 that this MS. was published by Fuller§ in which these names were retained, OllifF's specific names will in several instances have to rank as synonyms. * " Ueber Australische Zoocecidien und deren Erzeuger," Berliner Ento-molog.
