v. INDIAN TETRIGINAE (ACRYDIINAE). By ]. L. Hancock. (Plate xiv.) Several months ago the extensive collection of these small Orthoptera in the Indian Museum was placed in my hands for study by Dr. N. Annandale, Superintendent of the Museum. At the time I received the collection Dr. Annandale stated in a letter that: ■' a large proportion of the collection was named by the late Mr. Kirby just before his death, and I am sending these specimens also." A considerable number of the remaining specimens, not seen by Mr Kirby, were named b}^ Saussure and others. I find after going over the collection that the part examined by Mr. Kirby bears evidence that he had not passed final judgment on many of the specimens. This is shown from a number of cases where a hastily written label, with a specific name, is attached to one insect among a series containing from one to several species, so that the remaining ones were left undetermined. The Indian Museum collection contains such a large percentage of the described species of the Indian Empire, besides so many new ones, that I concluded to give a review of the recorded Indian species of this Orthopteran family. I have given a synopsis of the subfamilies, and the genera ; and in most cases in the large genera I have given tables for the separation of species. The litera-ture of all the species has been added but in conjunction with this part Kirby 's remarkable Catalogue of Orthoptera, Volume III, will be found invaluable for reference. The latter, however, includes the literature only to the end of 1898. Since then, a number of Indian species have been described, which are recorded in the present paper. Included at the end are some species in the Indian Museum outside the Indian Empire. Those from Ceylon are for the sake of convenience incorporated in the text with the Indian species.' Synoptical Table of Subfamilies and Genera of India. I. Antennae with all the articles excepting the basal and the small atrophied apical ' As the proofs of this article come to hand I find that Kirby's volume on Orthoptera has just been published in the " Fauna of British India" 1914. It refers to a number of Tetligid species described in the present paper, and in order to clarify the confusion that may arise from the difference in determinations the names given by Kirby, and those that I have applied, are placed in parallel columns on p. 132 of this article.
