Part II.^ [Eeceived January 10, 1899.] In the first part of this paper, the classification of the subfamily Pi/raiistince of the Pyralidce was completed as far as the end of the 1st group of genera with upturned palpi ; in the present part the second group of genera with porrect palpi is dealt with. The key to all the genera of the subfamily, the phylogenetic table, and the plates illustrating some of the new species were given in the first part of the paper. "We should be greatly obliged for the loan of specimens of any of the species mentioned in the series of papers on the Pyralidce that I have been unable to identify ; they would be carefully packed and returned after examination.
