XXII. NOTES AND DESCRIPTIONS OF INDIAN MICRO-LEPIDOPTERA. By E. Meyrick, B.A., F.R.S. The specimens on which the following notes and descriptions are based were submitted to me b}' the authorities of the Indian Museum, and the types of the new species are in the collection of the Museum, but cotypes of the majority are also in my own collection. PTEROPHORIDAE. Oxyptilus praedaior, n. sp cf . 12 mm. Head and thorax dark fuscous, metathorax and undersurface white. Palpi slender, curved, acute, dark fuscous mixed with whitish. Abdomen dark fuscous, white beneath, except towards apex. Fore wings cleft from f , segments moderate, second dilated posteriorly, termen of first sinuate, of second concave , bronzy-blackish ; some very undefined light suffusion towards base of first segment, and a faint whitish-fuscous subterminal line on both segments: cilia whitish, with two blackish patches on termen of each segment, dark fuscous on posterior half of both segments above and beneath, with two black scale-teeth on dorsum in middle and before cleft. Hindwings blackish, third segment very short and slender •, cilia rather dark grey with rosy reflections, on dorsum of third segment with a very small black scale-tooth close before apex. Sukna, E. Himala^^as, 500 feet, in July (Annandale) ; one specimen. Apparently nearest to 0. vaughmii from Ceylon, but that species has a broad white band on basal portion of abdomen. Platyptilia gonodadyla, Schiff. Darjiling, E.Himalayas, 7,000 feet, in August (Paiva); two specimens, apparently in no respect different from European. I have it also from Rawalpindi. PHALONIADAE. PJialoiiia iiiauniana , F.R. Bosondhur, Khulna district, Ganges delta, at light, in August (Jenkins) ; I have it also commonly from Ceylon. There is some individual variability, but no constant difference from the Euro-pean form ; it is a very wide-ranging insect.
