PREFACE. 



The present part of the ' Illustrations ' is a faunistic monograph, containing a systematic 
list o£ all the Lepidoptera Heterocera hitherto recorded from the Nilgiri district of S. India, 
and descriptions and figures of the numerous new species in the collection in the British 
Museum. It has been prepared by Mr. G. F. Hampson, who has kindly supplied me with 
the following particulars as regards the physical features of this district : — 

" The Nilgiri district consists of a wedge-shaped spur of mountains, with a base of 30 
miles, and an extreme length of 60 miles, running out from the Western Ghats and forming 
the commencement of the Eastern Ghats. The plains at the foot of the hills have an average 
temperature of some 80° F., whilst the plateau, with a mean temperature of but little over 
60" F., is subject to sharp frosts in December and January ; its elevation is from 6000 to 
7000 feet, peaks running up to nearly 9000 feet : from the plateau precipitous slopes descend 
on the west to the plains of Malabar, but little above sea-level ; on tlie south to the Palghat 
Gap, 1000 feet ; and on the north to tlie jNIysore plateau, 3000 feet. The western slopes 
forming part of the face of the Ghats get a rainfall of 300 inches, while on the lower slopes 
at the eastern end the rainfall does not e.Kceed 30 inches, so that the most diverse conditions 
obtain; consequently, while the Western slopes have a tropical Ceylouese fauna, the Eastern 
have that characteristic of the arid plains of India ; wliilst on the plateau many outlying 
members of the Palaearctic fauna occur." 

The materials on which this Monograph has been based are as follows : — 1. A collection 
of about 1000 species made by the Author in various parts of the district during the year 
1888 and now transferred to the British Museum; to each specimen of this collection the

PREFACE. 



exact locality and date of capture were afifixed. 2. A collection of about 700 species made 
on the southern slopes by Mr. Alfred Lindsay during the last fifteen years, of which a 
selection has been retained for the British Museum. 3. The numerous species of Nilgiri 
Moths in Col. C. Swinhoe's Collection ; supplemented by a few species from Mr. F. ]\Ioore's 
and the old British Museum Collections. 

References and synonymy are only given when they in any way differ from those in Cotes 
and Swinhoe's ' Catalogue of the Moths of India/ and the arrangement of that work has 
been followed, except in the Pyrales, in which the order of the genera is that adopted in 
the British Museum. Mr. Warren, who has recently arranged this part of the Museum 
Collection, has kindly placed his Manuscript Notes on the synonymy, so far as they affect 
Nilgiri species, at my disposal. 

Our best thanks are due to Mr. Hampson for the care and time which he has devoted 
to the preparation of this part ; to Mr. Moore and Col. Swinhoe, who have given to him 
much assistance during the progress of the work ; and to Prof. Westwood, who has allowed 
him free access to the Hope Collection in tiie Oxford Museum.

MELITTIA. — SYNTOMIS. 43 

DESCRIPTIONS OF THE NEW SPECIES. 

iEGEEIID^. 

Melittia dorsatiformis. (Plate CXXXIX. fig. 21.) 

Expanse l-j^^ inch. 

Male. IMargins and veins black ; apical border very narrow, speckled with a few purple- 
grey scales; apical transparent area very large and nearly round, traversed by four veins and 
partly by the subcostal upper uervule ; basal area traversed by median vein only; cilia of 
both wings brown ; abdominal margin of hind wing fringed with golden hairs : head and 
antenniB black, the latter golden brown below ; palpi white in front, black on sides and 
behind; thorax black in front, with a steel-blue collar, hind part golden yellow ; abdomen 
black above, with narrow white segmental bands and golden hairs, beneath yellow ; fore legs 
black, coxa white, femur and tibia golden in front ; mid-legs black, coxa white in front, femur 
with two steel-blue bands, tibia clothed with golden hairs behind ; hind legs, coxa black, with 
golden hairs behind, femur golden chestnut with long whitish hairs behind, tibia clothed with 
long black hairs, a few golden-brown and white ones near the base, and some steel-blue scales 
at the joint. 

Nearest to M. nepcha, Moore, from which it differs principally in the larger and rounder 
apical area and the colour of the legs. 

This species is so excellent a mimic of the common Indian Rock-Bee [Apis dorsata), that 
the only difference a close observer can detect when they are feeding at the same flower is the 
" paddling " of the thick hind legs of the moth to steady itself before the flower. 



ZYGiENID^. 

Syntomis gelatina. (Plate CXXXIX. fig. 1.) 

Expanse 1 inch. 

female. Head, thorax, and abdomen brownish black ; collar, first and fifth segments of 
abdomen orange, two lateral spots on pectus and three on each side of abdomen of the same 
colour ; antenna3 black, white-tipped above ; legs black, mid and hind pairs with a white band 
on the tibia : wings brownish black, the hyaline areas slightly ochreous with metallic 
reflections ; these areas as in S. libera, Walker, but larger in proportion, especially on the 
hind wing, which has only a naiTow black border. 

Near S. cvpreipennis , Butler, from which it chiefly differs in having no white spot on 
the frons. Also near /S. godart't, Bois., the apical hyaline spots of the fore wing smaller and 
placed further from the apex, and also lacking the white frons of that species. 



44 ZYG^NID^. 



TRICHOLEPIS, g. n. 



Palpi short and directed downwards ; antenme ciliated, rather more strongly in the male 
than the female : wings clothed with fine hairy scales ; fore wing long, narrow, and pointed ; 
cell long and rather narrow ; hind wing rather narrow ; costal and anal margins nearly 



straight ; outer margin rounded. 



Tricholepis erubescens. (Plate CXXXIX. figs. 3, 12.) 

Expanse f inch. 

Male. Legs, autennte, head, thorax, and base of fore wings crimson ; a black inwardly 
oblique antemedial band, the area beyond which is black, the disc very slightly suffused with 
crimson ; a small indistinct black spot at end of cell. Cilia, hind wing, and abdomen black. 
Anal tuft ochreous. 

Female. Differs from the male in having the disc of the outer area of the fore wing and 
the cilia of both wings crimson ; the ochreons anal tuft larger than in the male. 

Thyrassia aurodisca. (Plate CXXXIX. fig. 10.) 

Expanse 4 inch. 

Male. Fore wing purplish black, with three large hyaline spots, one subapical quadrifid, 
one near end of cell, the other bifid below it between the median and submedian nervures, 
and traversed by first median nervule; hind wing golden yellow, with a purple-black spot on 
the middle of the eosta, and a border of the same colour, broad at ape.K, narrow at outer angle : 
head and thorax black ; collar golden yellow ; abdomen black, except third, fourth, and fifth 
segments, ■which are golden yellow, each with a black spot above. 

Differs from the N. -Indian T. subcordata, Walker, in having the whole disc of the hind 
wing golden yellow, instead of a large spot at the inner margin neai" the base, and a small 
subcostal one towards the apex. 



BKACHARTONA, g. n. 

Venation, antennae, and palpi similar to Artona, Walk. ; fore wings much shorter and 
broader; costa more arched. Hind wings more ample, with the outer margin rounded. 

Type B. [Artona) quadrimaculuta. 



Brachartona purpurascens. (Plate CXXXIX. fig. 4.)

black, the latter yellow beneath. Fore wing dark purple, with two large triangular golden-yellow 



EUSEMIA. — EPYEGIS. 45 

patches on the costa, tlie first one third from the base and continued to the base as a narrow 
band, tlic other two thirds from base. Hind wing brown, with a golden-yellow patch running 
from the base along the costa for two thirds of its length, then along the outside of the cell, 
and up the median vein nearly to the base, so as to enclose a large brown patch ; a small 
narrow yellow mark on the submedian nervure near the base. Cilia of both wings dark. 
Antennae of female slighter than in B. quadrhnaculata. 



AGARISTIDiE. 

Eusemia latimargo. (Plate CXXXIX. fig. 24.) 

Expanse 2i-2f inches. 

Male and female. Dift'ers from the N. -Indian and Burmese E. maculatrix, Westw., in 
having the two outer discal yellow spots on the fore wing entirely obsolete or barely traceable 
and the black border of the hind wing considerably broader. 



CHALOOSIIDiE. 

Pintia latipennis. (Plate CXXXIX. fig. 22.)

and squarer, the costa of fore wing more arched, the outer margin straighter. Fore wing 
dark vinous red, with no metallic green on median and submedian nervures ; the subapical 
series of spots reduced in size and obsolescent. Hind wing dark brown, with scarcely a trace 
of the series of whitish spots outside the cell, except the upper one, which is fairly prominent ; 
cilia dark, not white as in P. ferrea. Underside dark brown, w-ith all the white markings 
reduced in size and obsolescent ; both wings with traces of metallic green at the base, but 
none along the costa ; the series of metallic-blue spots along the outer margin entirely absent.

liluc. Antennse, head, and collar metallic blue ; palpi white below ; thorax white and metallic 
blue; abdomen entirely metallic blue or green above, beneath white with segmental metallic- 
blue or green bands. 

All the other species of this group of the genus have the abdomen white above with 
metallic bands. 

The pupa affixed to branches of trees is like a small, withered, curled-up, red leaf. 
Also found in Madras and Travancore. 



NYCTEMERID.E. 

Secusio parvipnncta. (Plate CXXXIX. fig. 6.) 

Expanse 1-g-li inch.

of the postmedial band smaller, especially those above and below first median nervule, which 
are smaller than the others, instead of being considerably larger. 

Male with antennse heavily pectinated. 

A pair also from S. India in coll. B.M., and two females from the Kilimanjaro district 
of E. Africa. 



NYCTEOLIDJE. 

Earias luteolaria. (Plate CXXXIX. fig. 16.) 

Expanse ^ inch. 

Male ATiA female. Differs from E. siilphin-aria, ^ioore, in having the fore wing of a bright 
chrome-yellow with a reddish tinge, instead of sulphur-yellow ; the outer margin narrowly 
brown ; the cilia yellow, with purplish tips ; the head and thorax chrome-yellow ; the abdo- 
men paler. 

Paracrama rectomarginata. (Plate CXXXIX. fig. 7.) 

Expanse 1 inch. 

Male anifemale. Near P. dulcissima, Walk., but differing in having a small v-shaped 
white spot outlined with purple at the apex of fore wing, and the purple band along the 
outer margin narrow and quite even. 



DIGAMA.— NOTATA. 47 

LITHOSIID^. 

Digama marchalii, Guer., var. intermedia, nov. 

Expanse l^'j iudi- 

Female. Fore wing cinereous white ; two small black spots at tlie base ; aaotlier larger 
on the costa near the base, with a small black streak below it, and a dusky blotch near the 
inner margin ; a round black spot in the cell ; a lunulate one at the end of it ; the wiug 
crossed by three irregular interrupted dusky bands, one a third from base, the second at end 
of cell, curving round outside of it, the tliird submarginal ; the apical portion of the costa, 
the outer margin, and cilia dusky. Hind wing bright yellow, with a small black streak iu 
the centre of the outer margin. Head and thorax cinereous, Avith dusky blotches, and two 
black spots on the collar. Abdomen yellow, with a series of black segmental spots above 
and at each side. 

An intermediate variety between D. marchalii and D. figurata, the former of which has 
the costal and outer areas of fore wing clouded with fuliginous, the marginal and submarginal 
bands wanting, and all the other markings less distinct; while the latter has the markings 
black, and so broad that they cover the greater part of the fore wing, the outer margin of 
hind wing also has dark markings.

EROSIID^. 

Dirades leucocera. (Plate CL. fig. 13.) 

Expanse | inch. 

Mule. Shaped as in D. adjutaria, except that the outer margin of hind wing is not quite 
so evenly rounded. Fore wing pale purplish brown irrorated with dark scales ; a dark 
oblique streak from centre of costa to lower end of cell ; a pale line with dark inner margin 
from costa one third from apex to first median nervule near outer margin ; a large semicircle

of both wings white. Underside of fore wing pale vinous brown with dark dots, of hind wing 
uniform white. Vertex of head and shaft of anteuuEe pure white. 

Allied to D. b'inotata, but to be distinguished from that and the other species of the genus 
by its brighter coloration and white fold on inner margin of hind wing and white underside. 

The genus Dirades was formed for the species with this fold and with rounded outer 
margin to hind wing in male, and all the species without the fold and with slightly tailed hind 
wing should be placed in the genus Erosia. The species figured as D. adjutaria in Lcp. Ceyl. 
iii. pi. 186. fig, 9 is E. verticaria, Feld. ; the species figured as D. binolata being the true 
D. adjutaria. The species of the family Erosiidae all rest with the fore wing held more or less 
apart from the hind wing ; this habit is carried to its extreme in Gathynia miraria, which 
holds its fore wings at right angles to the body, and curled up into a tube, while the hind 
wings are closely folded along the abdomen, so that the insect takes the form of a cross. 

This family has in reality no affinities with the Gcometres, the larvce being quite different 
and nearer to those of the Bombyces, and it is probably allied to the Drepanulidas.
