I 192 THE ENTOMOLOGIST. SIX NEW SPECIES OF CULICID^ FROM INDIA, jj By Lt.-Col. G. M. Giles, M.B., F.R.C.S., I.M.S. (Communicated by F. V. Theobald, M.A., F.E.S.) CULEX TRIT^NIOKHYNCHUS, Sp. 11. Wings unspotted. Tarsi minutely basally banded, pale ochreous. Thorax unadorned, fuscous. Abdominal segments fuscous, with rather narrow yellowish white basal bands. Proboscis with three ochreous bands. A minute species of generally dusky tinting and proportionately long legs. Head fuscous ; eyes with a barely perceptible whitish mar-gin ; nape fuscous, with a few whitish hairs. Antennte fuscous, minutely banded white in the male. Proboscis fuscous, with three separate ochreous bands, one forming the tip ; the second sharply defined, and much broader beyond the middle ; the third less sharply defined, especially in the female, midway between the large band and the base. Palpi (male) considerably longer than the proboscis, ex-ceeding it by more than the length of the markedly subulate terminal joint, fuscous, with minute white basal bands to the last three joints ; female exceptionally minute, nearly black, with an indistinct greyish tip. Thorax fuscous, with golden brown tomentum, unadorned. Wings hyaline, with nearly black scales. Axillary vein joining costa a little in front of base of anterior fork-cell, and slightly behind tip of anterior branch of five longitudinal ; supernumerary and middle trans-verse veins in one line, and fully their united length outside the pos-terior transverse. Fork-cells both narrow and of nearly equal width, but the anterior the longer ; their stems short, the posterior being a little the longer, so that the base of the corresponding cell is slightly outside that of the anterior fork-cell. Halteres pale yellow. Legs fuscous ; the tarsi with minute ochreous basal bands to all the joints ; first post-tarsal joint longer than the corresponding tibia in both sexes. Abdomen fuscous, with rather narrow yellowish white basal bands to the segments, broader in the middle than laterally, especially on the anterior segments. Length of wing of male 2-4 mm., of female 3 mm. Hah. Madras, CuLEX PSEUDO-T^NIATUS, Sp. D.* Wings unspotted. Tarsi black, with white rings formed on the bases and apices of contiguous joints. Thorax black, elaborately adorned with fine white lines (almost as in C. tmiiatus,^ Meig. ). Abdominal segments black, with narrow basal bands ; venter pale fawn. The general coloration is an intense violet-black. This species bears a strong resemblance to C. notoscriptus, Skuse, and to C. tmiiatns, but may be easily distinguished by the position of the tarsal banding, and its wanting the white band on the proboscis of the former species. * This comes in my genus Stegomyia (F. V. T.). 1 This is synonymous with Culex fasciatus, Fabr. (F. V. T.).
