June, '08] ENTOMOLOGICAL NEWS. 263 New Pyralidae. BY FRANK HAIMBACH, Philadelphia, Pa. Symphysa ochralis sp. nov. Expanse of wings 15 mm. Entire upper surface of wings bright ochre-yellow, the secondaries somewhat lighter apically. Markings as in Symphysa cripalis. On the under side, only the outer line is vis-ible, which is shaded inwardly with a dark brown line, from which line the whole area to apex is light brown, darkest on primaries. Dis-tinct discal dots on all wings on under side only. Described from six specimens from Denver, Colo., vii, 17, '05 (Oslar). Blepharomastix occidentalis sp. nov. Expanse of wings 23 mm. Markings as in Blepharomastix ranalis, but heavier. Ground color is considerably darker than in ranalis, ap-proximating brown, with the entire upper surface covered with evenly distributed dark brown atoms. The species is closely related to ranalis, but can be readily separated by its uniformly larger size, and darker color, also by the upper wings of male, which are narrower and more pointed. Described from eight specimens collected by Mr. H. A. Kae-ber, at Miller's Canyon, Huachuca Mountains, Ariz., July, 1907. Blepharomastix nymphulalis sp. nov. Expanse of wings 20 mm. Upper and under surfaces of both pri-maries and secondaries lustrous whitish ochre, with well defined brown markings, similar to Nymphula ekthlipsis, which it mimics in this respect. The markings are the same beneath as above. The species is closest to Blepharomastix stenialis, but the secondaries are more pro-duced basally, and the markings are more distinct and ornate. Described from nine specimens collected at Cincinnati, Ohio, by Miss Annette F. Braun, on June 12, 17, and July 2 to loth. Pyrausta insequalis plagalis var. nov. Differs from the Eastern form, by having the markings of the front wings supplemented with bright crimson red ; the ground color is also lighter, and the markings are not so heavy. Hind wings, ground color bright orange, on which the lines are much finer. Described from one specimen collected by Mr. H. A. Kae-ber, at Miller's Canyon, Huachuca Mts., Ariz., July, '07. This may prove to be a distinct species, but having but the one speci-men, it is probably better for the present to give it only a varie-tal name.
