A List of the Daseribad Hemiptera (excluding-Aleyrodidae and Coccidae) of the Hawaiian Islands, BY G. W. KIRKALDY. The Hawaiian Hemiptera are remarkable for the fact that they are represented endemically by the following families only, viz: Cimicidae, (probably), Lygaeidae, Myodochidae, Nabidae, Red-uviidae, Anthocoridae, Miridae, and Acanthiidae, among the 26 recognized families of Heteroptera, and by the Tetigoniidae, Ful-goridae, Asiracidae and Chermidae only, out of the 14 Homopt-erous families: that is to say, 12 out of 40. These figures, however, do not really represent the true constitution of the Fauna, as, out of these 14, only 6 are represented by more than ten species each, viz: Myodochidae, Nabidae, Miridae, and the first three Homop-terous Families, (t) The absence of Cicadidae, Cercopidae, Aradidae, Pyrrhocori-dae, Tingidae, and Gerridae, so well developed in other parts of the Pacific, and the feeble representation of the mighty Cimici-dae, Lygaeidae and Reduviidae, show, more plainly than many words, the real condition of the Fauna. The leading characteristic of the Hawaiian Hemiptera is their tendency, and almost complete adaptation, to an arboreal life. All, or practically all, the Hawaiian Asiracidae — one of the most important families numerically — are arboreal, a phenomenon otherwise known, so far, only in one peculiar Australian genus, Proterosydne Kirkaldy. Acmithia, usually a riparian genus, has one species, representing, no doubt, the ancestral form, inhabit -(X) In calculating, I have taken into account a large number of manuscript species.
