Andrewes in the Nilgiri Hills and by M'T.-R.-D. Bell at Kanara, Karachi, Khandesh and Kashmir. They were submitted to me by M' H.-E. Andrewes for examination and form the third consignment of this group received by this gentle-man, of which I gave an account in the Annals of the Belgian Entomol. Society.
