130 NOVITATES ZOOLOOICAE XLI. 1938. ON SOME NEW OE UNFIGURED LEPIDOPTERA FROM THE ORIENTAL AND ETHIOPIAN REGIONS. By KARL JORDAN. (With Plates III and IV.) 1. Delias itamputi luctuosa Jord. 1912 (PL III, figs. 7, 8). (J. D. i. I. Jordan, Nov. Zool., xviii, p. 584, no. 4 (1912) (Mt. Groome, 11,000 ft.). The specimen, a ^, is still the only one recorded of this subspecies, which is distinguished by the great extent of the black borders. 2. Charaxes tectonis Jord. 1937 (PI. Ill, figs. 9, 10). (J. Ch. t. Jordan, I.e., xl, p. 323, no. 1 (1937) (Cameroon: Bamenda). No further specimens have come to hand. 3. Daphnusa ocellaris ailanti Boisd. 1875 (PI. IV, figs, ii s, 12 $). cJ. Smerinfhiis ailanti Boisduval, Spec. Oen. Lep. Hit., i, p. 28, no. 16, pi. 3, fig. 2 (J (1875). (J. Daphnusa ocellaris ailanti, Rothschild & Jordan, Revision of Sphingidae, p. 285, no. 2416 (1903). Although Boisduval stated that his specimen had been obtained from a chrysalis found by Lorquin at the foot of Ailanthus glanchdosa at Hongkong, the true locality is Celebes, probably the Minahassa district where Lorquin had been collecting. We have lately received several (J(^ and a 5 from Mr. J. P. A. Kalis, who obtained them inland from Paloe Bay, West Celebes, at various places from November 1937 to April 1938, at altitudes from 900 ft. to 3,700 ft. As stated in the Bevisio?i, the distal margin of the forewing is more convex below middle than in D. o. ocellaris Walker 1856 and the apex of the hindwing more broadly rounded. Moreover, the tornus of the forewing projects less far backward, particularly in the (J, and the hindwing is somewhat differently marked at the anal angle, bearing here close to the distal margin a short broadish brown continuous band. 4. Hippotion moorei moorei Jord. 1926 (PI. IV, fig. 13 ^). $. H. m. Jordan, Nov. Zool., xxxiii, p. 383, no. 11a (1926) (Tanganyika Terr. : Mwanza). 5. Hippotion exclamationis robur subsp. nov. (PI. IV, figs. 14, 15). $. Larger and more robust than H. e. exclamationis Fawc. 1915 from Kenya and H. e. austmium Jord. 1930 from Zululand. Occiput, upperside of thorax and abdomen and the wings above and below much more shaded and irrorated with blackish olive, the base of the abdomen being particularly darker than in the other subspecies. On upperside of forewing the discal dots form the proximal boundary of a diffuse olive band, which is more or less conspicuous ; in one paratype (fig. 15) there is rufous scaling within this band ; dots at apices of veins well-marked. Hindwing very dark, blackish olive, the pinkish submarginal diffuse band of the other subspecies absent or vestigial.
