1'SS NOVITATES ZOOLOGICAE XXXVI. 1931. ANTHRIBIDAE COLLECTED BY F. C. DRESCHER ON THE ISLAND OF JAVA. By DR. KARL JORDAN. (With 4 text-figures.) THHE collection of Anthribidae submitted to me by Mr. F. C. Drescher is ■*■ one of the best I have ever received. It contains such a large number of species and subspecies new to science, or new for Java, that when all of them have been worked out and described, we shall know from Java twice as many Anthribids than have hitherto been recorded from that rich island. Among Mr. Drescher's discoveries is a species, described and figured under No. 47, which I consider the most interesting one in the whole family on account of the develop-ment of a pair of horns on the head, recalling the Indian Cetonid Dicranocephalus wallicM Hope 1831 (and the American Pronghorn Antelope). The present paper is a first instalment in which some of the novelties are described and species new for Java, or requiring comment, are enumerated. The publication of the remainder of the novelties, many of them represented by single specimens, being postponed in the hope that Mr. Drescher will succeed in discovering additional examples of the new species. Mr. Drescher has most kindly allowed me to retain the types as well as further specimens when available, and I take this opportunity of thanking him for his great generosity. 1. Physopterus alboguttulatus Jord. 1894. G. Tangkoeban Prahoe, Preanger, 4-5,000 ft., I.IX.X.XL, 1 $, 5 $?. Dots white, in one $ faintly yellow. 2. Acorynus dicyrtus .lord. 1012. G. Tangkoeban Prahoe, Preanger, 4-5,000 ft., VII.X.XI.XIL, 3 $$, 1 $ ; Batoerraden, G. Slamat, I.VII.VIII.XI., 2 £<?, 2 $$. Described from a single o from the Preanger. The $ is like the <$, apart from the sexual distinc-tions usual in this group. The subbasal hump of the elytrum is very distinct. 3. Acorynus lineolatus slamatus subsp. nov. <J?. Similar to A. lin. coalitus Jord. 1020. from Engano, but the markings of prone-turn and elytra ashy grey (instead of drab grey) and smaller, the black antemedian spots of elytra united into a transverse band, the grey occupying in posterior two-thirds of elytra rather less space than the black.
