590 MR. E. C. CHUBB ON BATRACHIANS [May 11, wlutisli fawn on the throat and limbs, and the speckling as fully marked on the neck and flanks as on the back. JSFo white on the chin ; but the whole of the under-pavts dirty white, instead of merely the abdomen. Dark dorsal line stopping short about the middle of the back. For the present, at any rate, I propose to i^egard the Sze-chuen "white" deer as a i-ace of the Hangul, under the title of Cervus cashmirianus 7nacneiUi. The occurrence in Sze-chvien of a repre-sentative of the Hangul is paralleled by the occurrence in the same province of a local race of the Sambar. EXPLANATION OF PLATE LXIX. Cervus caihmivianus macneilli, from tlie type female from Sze-cliuen in the British Museum (Natural Historj'). 5, The Bcitrachians and Reptiles of Matabeleland. By E. C. Chubb, F.Z.S. [Received April 28, 1909.] The following list is based entirely upon material in the Khodesia Museum, Bulawayo, and is intended to give some idea of the Batra,chia and Reptilia inhabiting this region, although it cannot claim to be more than tentative, for as soon as extensive collections are made in various parts of the covmtry there will, no doubt, be many species to add. The localities vary in altitude between 2000 and 4500 feet ; the latter figure representing the height of Bulawayo. In a previous papei-dealing with the Mammals of this area* an allusion was made to the probability of the various geological formations supporting distinct faunas, and this appears to be boi'ne out to a remarkable extent by the lizards, no single species of which has as yet been found common to our two iDrincipal local formations, viz., granite and schist. Below is given a list of those forms which I have had an opportunity of observing in their haunts ; it is arranged to show their habitats according to these two formations. Granite. Schist. Ilom opholis loahlhergii. Pachydactylus affinis. Pachydactylas hibronii. Agama kirkii. Agama clistanti. ,, atricollis. Platysaurus guttatus. Gerrhosaurits validus. Gerrhosaur^tsjiavigularis. JIabuia quinquetceniata. iMahuia striata. ,, varia. * P. Z. S. 1909, p. 113.
