Ramakrishna Ayyar, B.A., F.E.S, F.Z.S., Acting Govermnent Entomologist, Madras. The latest connected record of the injurious insects of South India is the volume on Some South Indian Insects by Mr. Fletcher. In the preface to that publication the author writes thus : — " The list of crop-pests is not complete, and it must be clearly understood that it cannot be complete for many years, if ever. Every month new pests come to hght, many of them altogether unkno\\T^i even by name, and our know-ledge of old pests is augmented." These words are only too true ; for, since the publication of that volume in 1914, several new insects of economic importance have been noted in South India within the last three or four years.
