xli, 30] ENTOMOLOGICAL NEWS 261 Sept. 9th, 1924. Yet another C alias Icsbia, a male, flew to my verandah light. Dec. 29th, 1925. A specimen of P. Intntcra, f. brasilicusis came to light. A common insect that has a habit of sleeping under eaves and such like places and may possibly have been disturbed from a few feet from the light. Jan. 29th, 1927. A small unidentified Tliccht. which was common around a tall bush before my house at that time, was seen sitting on the wall beneath the outside light. There is no doubt that it had arrived after dark. The above records from A lay 1st, 1924, till Jan. 29th. 1927, both inclusive, were made at Villa Ana in the Province of Santa Fe in the Argentine Republic. Feb. 17th, 1929. A female Euptoictu clandia Cr., s. sp. hortensia Blanch, was flying around a coloured cabaret sign in Calle Maipu, in the centre of Buenos Aires, at 10.30 p.m. I add a record that would be more in place under the head-ing "The Day Flight of Nocturnal Moths". July 28th, 1921. On the southern range of the Island of Cyprus, between Platres and Troodos, I captured, at about 12.30 p.m., a specimen of Hippotion cclcrio L. that in the bright sunlight of a small forest glade by the side of a stream was flitting from flower to flower, feeding a little at each, and ap-parently quite oblivious to the fact that it had come from its resting place some seven hours too early. A Synopsis of the Genus Macromeigenia Including the Description of One New Species (Diptera : Tachinidae). By H. J. REIXHARD, College Station, Texas. The genus Macromeigenia was established by Brauer and Bergenstamm 1 with Tacliina chrysoprochi Wiecl. as the type and sole species. Wiedemann's description does not mention the source of his type series but his species is not uncommon in the northeastern section of the United States. In 1 ( '21, I described friocusis-a closely related form but referred it to the genus Erncstia. Subsequently Dr. J. M. Aldrich sent me a specimen of chrysoprocta, and from a comparison of the two species it appears that friocusis is congeneric although quite distinct specifically. A third apparently undescribed species, also from Texas, is herein referred to the genus and a key to the species given below. J Zweifl. d. Kaiserl. Mus., Yul. 5.
