This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 

to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 

to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 

are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other maiginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 

publisher to a library and finally to you. 

Usage guidelines 

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing tliis resource, we liave taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying. 
We also ask that you: 

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for 
personal, non-commercial purposes. 

+ Refrain fivm automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine 
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the 
use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help. 

+ Maintain attributionTht GoogXt "watermark" you see on each file is essential for in forming people about this project and helping them find 
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it. 

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner 
anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement liabili^ can be quite severe.

PREFACE 



The object of the present Catalogue is to give a list of 
the Specimens received by the Museum or described by 
Naturalists since the publication of the former Parts. The 
letters a, b, c, &c., after the species, denote the specimens now 
contained in the British Museum, followed by the habitat and 
! the mode in which each of them was obtained ; the absence 
of these letters indicates the species which are desiderata 
for the Entomological collection.

Male, Body moderately stout. Proboscis short Palpi por- 
reet, slender, extending very little beyond the head ; second joint 
clothed with long hairs ; third lanceolate, about half the length of 
the second. Antennae slightly pectinated. Abdomen with some 
small crests, not extending beyond the hind wings. Legs rather 
stout ; femora and tibias pilose ; spurs, moderately long. Wings 
elongate, rather broad. Fore wiugs slightly rounded at the tips ;

Cinereous- white. Head with a black hand iu front. Palpi 
ponect, verjr short. AntennsB black, minutely serrated and sets- 
lose. Fore teguls of the ihurax bordered with black. Pectus tod 
abdomen with a slight testaceous tinge, the latter extending some* 
what beyond the hind wings. Tibia; black on the outer side ; tarsi 
with black bands. Fore wings with a black basal streak, with a 
▼ery deeply undulating transverse black line, which forms lanceolate 
curres, with black elongated submarginal dots and with black mai^ 
ginal points. Hind wings white, with a blackish mark in the diik, 
with elongated black exCerior points, and with a few black marginal 
points. Length of the body 8 lines ; of the wings(20 lines. 

Most like A. iepwtculina and A. oblinitaj but the fore wings 
are much narrower than those of leputcvdina^ and the black marks 
on the Tcins of the hiud wings distinguish it from oblinita.
