Article V. — SUPPLEMENT TO PRELIMINARY LIST OF THE 
COLEOPTERA OF THE WEST INDIES. 

By Charles W. Leng, B. S., Honorary Curator of Coleoptera 
and Andrew J. Mutchler, Assistant. 

In the preface to the Preliminary List of the Coleoptera of the West 
Indies x we asked our readers to communicate any papers or manuscript 
notes bearing on the subject and expressed the hope of publishing later the 
records of the collections in this and possibly other museums. We have 
received a number of such communications in response to our request and 
have examined the material in the National Museum. To all who have 
thus aided us we are grateful, but particularly to Mr. E. A. Schwarz, to 
whose great knowledge of the subject and great patience and liberality in 
communicating his knowledge to us we owe much more than we can repay. 
In addition to the identified specimens, now added to the published records, 
there exists in this and other museums, a mass of unidentified material con- 
sisting largely of undescribed species of which at present no satisfactory 
records can be published. The additions (about 200), corrections, and 
notes that follow are derived either from the sources named or from the ex- 
tensive West Indian material accumulated in American Museum and are in 
each instance credited to the proper source by an abbreviation. The ex- 
planation of such abbreviations and, concurrently, the authorities are given 
in the following list.

however, never been described and are not included by us.

The statement in the Preliminary List " total absence of the Silphidse", 
requires modification. While true of Silpha and Nccrophorus and of Bury- 
ing Beetles in the sense we intended, it is not true of all Silphidae, as that 
family is composed in the Henshaw Check List. There is a species of 
Aglyptonotus in the British Museum from St. Vincent and Grenada (Ent. 
Mont. Mag., LI., p: 121). Mr. Schwarz has collected a species of Aglyp- 
tonotus at Cayamas, Cuba, and the National Museum contains specimens 
of a Ptomophagus or Choleva from Porto Rico. These are certainties; there

is furthermore a probability that species of Scotocryptus or Parabystus will 
be found, as they are inquilinous on Melipone bees, which occur in the West 
Indies (Schwarz). 

The islands of Trinidad and Tobago, which are politically part of the 
West Indies, are situated close to the mainland of South America, of which 
faunistically they become part. In Cicindelinre the introduction of Trin- 
idad records would require the addition of four species of the genus Odon- 
tochila (Trinidad Field Nat. Club, I, 1892, p. 109, and Walther Horn in 
Gen. Ins.) and, in other families, many similarly alien records. We shall, 
therefore, in future omit from the West Indian List species and genera 
occurring only in the islands above named. 

In the following pages the additional records of distribution and the 
species to be added to our Preliminary List, the latter being indicated by 
asterisks, are arranged according to that List; errors which have been 
noticed are corrected, and various other items of interest are included. It 
will be noted that an atmosphere of doubt, necessarily surrounding records 
based on the various identifications of different authors in difficult groups, 
is indicated, but this cannot be dissipated until each of such groups is 
studied in detail. 

Family I. CARABID^. 

Subfamily Cicindelinfe. 

The authors have published (Bull. American Mus. Nat. Hist., XXV, 
1916, pp. 681-698) a Descriptive Catalogue of the West Indian Cicindelinse 
which involves the separation of the records for Tetracha sobrina and Cicin- 
dela suturalis to show the distribution of their varieties, the revival of 
Fleutiaux and Salle's variety pallipes under argentata, the description of a 
new variety of T. sobrina from Antigua, and of two new species of Cicindela 
from Cuba. On account of these changes and of numerous additional rec- 
ords, we think it advisable to publish a complete revised list of this sub- 
family. 

Tetracha Hope. 

Tetracha acutipennis (Dejean). Hispaniola, Cuba. 
Tetracha sobrina (Dejean). St. Bartholomew?. 

Tetracha sobrina var. infuscata (Mannerheim). Hispaniola, Porto 
Rico, St. Croix, St. Bartholomew. 

Tetracha sobrina var. antiguana Leng and Mutchler. Antigua. 

Tetracha Carolina (Linne). Cuba. 

Tetracha Carolina var. occidentalis (Klug). Cuba, Grand Cayman.

* Tachys picturatus Putzeys. Antigua (Putzeys). 

Tachyta autmnnalis Bates. Cuba, Montserrat (U. S. N. M.). 

* Pterocharis eggersi Ehlers. St. Thomas (Tr. Am. Ent. Soc, 1883, p. 36). 
Lachnophorus leucopterus Chevrolat. Porto Rico (A. M. N. H.). 
Selenophorus alternans Dejean. Porto Rico (Gundlach).

Selenojihorus propinquus Putzeys. Antigua (Putzeys). 

Selenophorus pyritosus Dejean. Porto Rico (Gundlach). 

Selenophorus sinuatus (Gyllenhal). Antigua (Putzeys). 

Putzeys (Stett. Ent. Zeit., 1878) treats S. cuprinus Dejean as a synonym 
of S. discopunctatus Dejean and S. ameocupreus Dejean as a form of S. 
beauvoisi Dejean, established on darker specimens with the sides of thorax 
less rounded and other details. 

Gynandropus guadeloupensis Fleutiaux. Porto Rico (U. S. N. M.).

Amblygnathus vitraci Fleutiaux. Dominica (U. S. N. M.). 

* Euphorticus pubeseens var. wneohis Bates. Cuba (U. S. N. M.). 
Colpodes ellipticus Chaudoir. Guadeloupe (U. S. N. M.). 
Ste?wus tibialis (Chevrolat). Porto Rico (Gundlach). 

* Panagceus fasciatus Say. Porto Rico (Gundlach). 

* Panagceus thomoe Schauta. Cuba (U. S. N. M.). This has been 
treated as a synonym of the Mexican quadrisignatus but is possibly distinct. 

Panaga?us quadrisignatus Chevrolat. Cuba, Porto Rico (A. M. N. H.). 
Aspidoglossa vulnerata Putzeys. Cuba, Porto Rico (Gundlach). 

* Clivina bipustulata (Fabricius). Cuba (A. M. N. H.); it is possible 
that this and the preceding records refer to the same insect. 

Oxydrepanus rufus (Putzeys). Guadeloupe (Fleutiaux). 

Stratiotes iracundus Putzeys. Dominica (A. M. N. H.). 

Morio monilieornis (Latreille). Porto Rico, Culebra, Jamaica, Haiti; 
possibly introduced in pine lumber from the United States (Schwarz). 

C optoder a f estiva Dejean. Jamaica (U. S. N. M.). 

Rhombodera flavipes (pallipes err. typ.) Leconte. Occurs also in Jamaica 
(U. S. X. M.). 

Rhombodera bicolor Leconte which may be a variety of flavipes (Leconte), 
(compare G. H. Horn, Tran. Am. Ent. Soc, X, p. 159) and possibly not 
different from atrorufa Reiche. Porto Rico (Gundlach and Van Zwaluwen- 
burg). 

Lebia viridis Say. Dominica, Porto Rico (A. M. X. H.). 

Lebia bitceniata Chevrolat. Dominica, Porto Rico (U. S. X. M.). 

* Lebia elevata (Fabricius)? Guadeloupe. The identity of the Guade- 
loupe insect is doubtful. See Fleutiaux, Ann. Ent. Soc. Fr., 1889, p. 361. 

* Apenes opaca Leconte. Bahamas (Wickham). 

Apenes parallela Dejean and A. morio (Dejean) may be synonymous. 
Apenes parallela (Dejean). Bahamas (A. M. X. H.). 

* Apenes variegata (Dejean) . Antigua (Putzeys) . Under this name both 
Van Zwaluwenburg and Gundlach record a species from Porto Rico in the 
genus Cymindis; it seems probable, however, that all the West Indies species 
recorded in that genus really belong to Apenes. 

* Zuphium americanum Dejean. Porto Rico (Gundlach, A. M. X. H.). 
Brachinus gilvipes Mannerheim. Porto Rico (Gundlach). 

Galerita beauvoisi Chaudoir. Barbados (Cockerell). 

* Casnonia insignis (Chaudoir). Porto Rico (Gundlach). 

Calosoma alternans Fabricius. St. Croix (U. S. X. M.); St. Vincent, 
Barbuda (W. I. Bull.). 

The American species, * C. calidum (Fabricius) is also credited to Porto 
Rico by Van Zwaluwenburg, but the identification may be subject to revi- 
sion.

Family III. DYTISCIDyE. 

Megadytes fraternus Sharp. Porto Rico (Gundlach, U. S. N. M.). 

Megadytes gig aniens (Castelnau). Porto Rico (Gundlach and Van 
Zwaluwenburg). The Cuban species may not be identical; it is labelled 
I'herminieri in U. S. N. M. Coll. 

Eunectes occidentalis White is a synonym of E. sticticus (Linne); also 
the citation on p. 398 of Eretes sticticus (Linne) for the Guadeloupe species is 
an error, there being but one species involved. The author of E. occidentalis 
appears to be Erichson. 

Thermonectes margineguttatus (Aube). Porto Rico (Gundlach). 

Thermonectes circumscriptus (Latreille). Porto Rico (Gundlach); St. 
Thomas (U. S. N. M.). 

Rhantus calidus (Fabricius). Haiti (A. M. N. H.).

Derallus rudis Sharp. Cuba (A. M. N. H.). 

Stethoxus intermedins (Jacquelin Duval). Culebra (U. S. N. M.). 

According to Mr. F. Winters teiner, who has studied our collections of 
Hydrophilidae, the West Indian species intermedins (Duval) is not identical 
with the Central American species ater (Olivier). 



1917.] Leng and Mutchler, Coleoptera of the West Indies. 197

Daciylosternum flavicorne (Mulsant). Porto Rico (Gundlach); Haiti 
(U. S. N. M.). 

* Dactylosternum advectum Horn. Porto Rico (A. M. N. H.). 

The authority for D. subdepressum should be corrected to Castelnau. 
Phamonotum estriatum Say. Dominica, Jamaica, Cuba (A. M. N. H.). 

* Phainotypus pahnarum (Schwarz). Dominica (A. M. N. H.). 

* Oosternum costatum Sharp. Cuba, Porto Rico (U. S. N. M. and A. M.

, The record of Hippodamia 13-punctata (Linne) from the Antilles is 
questioned by Mr. Schwarz; the species being distinctly northern and its 
occurrence almost impossible unless introduced. In the same category may 
be placed the recent records of * H. convergens Guerin, Porto Rico (Van

Euxestus piciceps Gorham is the same as E. minor (Sharp), see Champion 
Trans. Ent. Soc. Lond. 1913, p. 79, and E. erithacus (Chevrolat) is probably 
not more than a variety of E. parki Wollaston.

There is a question as to whether the genus Moncedus was described by 
Horn or Leconte. The description of the type species appears in a paper by 
Horn but Leconte's authorship of the species is clearly indicated by Horn's 
statement that Dr. Leconte communicated the description. The author of 
the genus, nevertheless, appears to be Horn and our citation should be cor-

Chelonarium punctatum Fabricius. Porto Rico (Gundlach). The posi- 
tion of the genus Chelonarium is uncertain; its species live on bushes, not 
on the ground like the Byrrhidse. It is treated as a separate family by Brues 
and Melander, and is placed in the subfamily Chelonarinse under Byrrhidse 
by Sharp (Biol. Cent. Amer... II, pt. 1, 1902, pp. 684-696); Plate XX 
referred to in the text was, apparently, never published.

According to Kerremans' Monograph, the following changes should 
be made: 

Polycesta thomoe Chevrolat is a synonym of P. porcata (Fabricius); P. 
angulosa Jacquelin Duval is a synonym of P. excavata Blanchard; Acmoeodera 
contigua Kerremans is a synonym of A. flavomarginata (Gray); Halecia 
aureomieans (Xonfried) and Hilarotes chalcoptera (Jacquelin Duval) are both 
synonyms of Halecia nitidicollis (Castelnau); Gyascutus carolinensis Horn 
belongs in Hippomelas. 

The identity of Psiloptera aurifera (spelled in error aurifer) and aurata is 
questionable. 

* Pelecopselaphus strictus (Linne). Antilles (Kerremans).

These and other species of Buprestis are probably not native but com- 
mercially introduced in timber. See also Fleutiaux (Ann. Soc. Ent. Fr., 
1889, p. 405) for similar Guadeloupe records.

The spelling of the family name requires correction, as above. 

Family XLIII. CLERIDiE. 

i 

Thanoclerus should read Thaneroclerus and the locality Guadeloupe 
should be inserted for T. girodi Chevrolat; Fleutiaux (Ann. Soc. Ent. Fr., 
1889, p. 417) records T. buqueti (Lefebvre) with T. girodi as a synonym, but 
buqueti being East Indian (Schenckling in Gen. Ins.) girodi is probably the 
the Guadeloupe species. 

Family XLIV. PTINID^. 

Gibbium psylloides Czempinski. Montserrat (U. S. N. M.). This is a 
cosmopolitan insect — as are many of the family. 

Ptinus niveicollis Boieldieu. Cuba (U. S. N. M.). 

Lasioderma serricome (Fabricius). Cuba (U. S. N. M.); Porto Rico 
(Van Zwaluwenburg). 

Champion's paper, in Trans. Entom. Soc. Lond., 1913, makes some 
changes in this family: Ozognathus is not Antillean and the species referred 
thereto may be a Cryptorama; Petalium pulicarium (Gorham) is a synonym 
of P. antillarum (Pic); Mirosternus Icevis Gorham belongs to Eupactus 
Leconte; Priotoma brevisl Gorham is P. insularis Champion. 

Xylographus belongs in Cioidae. 

Calymmaderus bibliothecarum (Poey). Porto Rico (Gundlach). 

Atractocems Palisot (not Latreille) belongs in Lymexylonidse. 

Atractocerm brasiliensis (Laporte and Serville) of which A. antillarum 
Vitrac (Insecta, III, 1913, p. 168) is treated as a synonym by Schenckling 
(Coleopterorum Catalogus, pt. 64, 1915). Jamaica (Cockerell).

* Minthea rugicollis Walker (Lyctopholis foveicollis Reitter), St. Domingo 
(U. S. Tech. Ser. 20, part 3, 1911, p. 138). 

The genus Xylopertha should be expunged; the species sextuberculata 
is Zylomeira torquata (Fabricius) ; the species minutus is cosmopolitan and 
belongs in Dinoderus. 

Hetcrarthron gonagra (Fabricius). Jamaica, Dominica (U. S. N. M.). 

* Heterarthron plicatus (Leconte). Cuba, Jamaica (U. S. N. M.).

Ennearthron delicatuluvi Jacquelin Duval. Porto Rico (Gundlach). 
Strike out Ceratocis, transferring the species to Ceracis.

Passalus tlascala Percheron is a Neleus. 

It is doubtful that Passalus unicornis (Serville) occurs in Cuba or 
Guadeloupe. 

Passalus interruptus (Linne). Martinique (Marshall).

Chceridium insulare Chevrolat. Montserrat (U. S. N. M.). 

* Canthidium melanocephalum (Olivier). According to Olivier (Ent., 
I, 3, pp. 173, 174,) the type of this species was described from Guadeloupe 
but von Harold, in Coleopterologische Hefte, I, pp. 29-30, gives Brazil as 
the locality for the species and more recent authors have followed the latter 
record, excepting Fleutiaux and Salle, who very likely followed Olivier, as 
they had no specimens of this species to verify the records.

It may be well to repeat that species described from Trinidad, of which 
there are several in Scarabseidae, are not included because that island is

the authority (see Trans. Ent. Soc. London, 1895, pp. 135, 136). 

Lepturges guadeloupensis Fleutiaux and Salle. Cuba (U. S. N. M.). 

* Onychocerus scorpio (Fabricius). Grenada (U. S. N. M.) received 
from H. A. Ballou. 

* Monohammus titillator (Fabricius). Cuba, Porto Rico (Gundlach); 
perhaps introduced from the United States.

* Glyptoscelis hobsoni (Curtis). Cuba (Clavareau, Coleopterorum Cata- 
logus). < ' "^l^t- 

*Mctachroina terminalis Horn. Cuba (A. M. N. H.). 

Numerous changes are made by Clavareau in the Coleopterorum Cata- 
logus, pt. 59: Noda fusca is placed in Glyptoscelis; N. luteicornis is placed 
in Colaspis; Colaspis suffriani Weise is proposed for C. nigricornis; Chalco- 
phana furvida is placed in Colaspis, all other species of Chalcophana in 
Phanceta; Heteraspis nana is placed in Glyptoscelis; Metachroma cubozcola 
Clavareau is proposed for M. pwicticollis; M. suffriani Clavareau is pro-

posed for M. suturalis; Myochrous brevicornis is placed in Glyptoscelis; 
M. denticollis is not cited as West Indian. 

Colaspis cbasi should read Colaspis lebasi. 

The following species recorded from the West Indies, in many instances 
on excellent authority, are cited by Clavareau, in Coleopterorum Catalogus, 
pt. 59, only from the following localities but probably without the intention 
of discrediting the published records of West Indian occurrence: Rhabdop- 
tera picipes (Olivier), Massachusetts to Dakota to Carolina; Colaspis fasti- 
diosa (Lefevre), Colombia, Venezuela, Panama; C. obscura Fabricius, South 
America; C. lebasi Lefevre, Columbia, Central America; C. femoralis 
Lefevre, Columbia, Panama; Typophorus viridicyaneus (Crotch), Virginia

Diabrotica innuba (Fabricius). Culebra (U. S. N. M.). 

Diabrotica melanocephala (Fabricius). Montserrat (U. S. N. M.). 

Diabrotica ochreata (Fabricius). Montserrat (U. S. N. M.). 

Diabrotica pmlchella (Jacquelin Duval) is a Phyllobrotica (Schwarz). 

Strike out Hypolampsis nigrina Clark, St. Paul's Island being not West 
Indian; also Omototus fidvopubescens Clark, the Cuban citation being errone- 
ous. 

CEdionyckis cyanipennis (Fabricius). Haiti (A. M. N. H.). 

Homophwta osquinoctialis (Fabricius). St. Croix (A. M. N. H.) ; Jamaica, 
Porto Rico, Antigua, treating albicollis as a synonym (U. S. N. M.). 

* Haltica subaurea Suffrian. Cuba (U. S. N. M.). 

* Haltica ignita Illiger? Bahamas (U. S. N. M.). 

Epitrix fuscata (Jacquelin Duval). Porto Rico (Gundlach). 
Epitrix parvula (Fabricius). Bahamas (U. S. N. M.). 

* Epitrix cucumeris (Harris). Porto Rico (Jones, Van Zwaluwenburg). 
The identity of the Porto Rican insect with E. cucumeris of the United 
States is insisted upon by Mr. Schwarz, who made the identification. 

Systena basalis Jacquelin Duval. Haiti (A. M. N. H.). 

Lactica scutellaris (Olivier). Jamaica (A. M. N. H.). 

Aphthona compressa (Suffrian). Haiti, Bahamas, Culebra (U. S. N. M.).

Elytrogona bulla Boheman. Haiti (Spaeth). 

Elytrogona quadrimaculata (Latreille), change to E. quatrodecimmaculata 
(Latreille). 

Chelymorpha polysticha Boheman. Dominica (U. S. N. M.); St. 
Bartholomew (Spaeth). 

Chelymorpha swarzi Thunberg change to C. swartzii Thunberg. See 
Schonherr, Syn. Ins., II, p. 229. 

Omoplata distincta Boheman. Martinique (Spaeth). 

* Batonota rugosa Wagener. Haiti (Mitt. Munch. Ent. Ver. V. 1881, 
p. 44). 

* Calaspidea grossa (Linne). Jamaica (Spaeth). 

* Oxynodera variegata (Linne). Antilles (Spaeth). 

* Physonota gigantea Boheman. Antilles (Spaeth). 

Strike out Aspidomorpha bajula Boheman, which according to Spaeth 
is a synonym of the East Indian A. sanctce crucis (Fabricius). 

A number of changes in position, etc., are proposed in Coleopterorum 
Catalogus, pt. 62, as follows: Mesomphalia amea (Olivier) is placed in Pseu- 
domesomphalia Spaeth; M. exclamationis (Linne) is placed in Hilarocassis 
Spaeth; Chelymorpha angusticollis Suffrian, C. flavicollis Boheman and C. 
swartzii Thunberg are placed in Stoiba Spaeth; C. argus (Lichtenstein) is 
treated as a variety of C. cassidea (Fabricius) and C. polysticha Boheman 
as a variety of C. multipunctata (Olivier). The other generic names under 
which Spaeth catalogues the species formerly placed in Coptocycla are not 
yet adopted by the authors. 

Coptocycla bistripunctata Olivier. Antigua (U. S. N. M.). This name 
was probably cited in error by Fleutiaux and Salle for sexpunctata Olivier. 

* Coptocycla propinqua (Boheman). Haiti (A. M. N. H.). 
Coptocycla subsignata (Boheman). Haiti, Porto Rico, Cuba (A. M. 

N. H.). 

Coptocycla guttata (Olivier). Porto Rico (Van Zwaluwenburg, Jones); 
Cuba, Jamaica, Haiti (U. S. N. M.). (Champion, in Biologia). 

* Coptocycla guttata var. fuliginosa (Olivier). Guadeloupe (Champion, 
in Biologia Cen. Am., Col., VI, pt. 2, pp. 194-195). 

According to Champion, I. c, guttata Boheman nee Olivier, 1808, and 
hamulata Boheman are synonyms of signifera (Herbst), but he appears to 



1917.] Leng and Mutchler, Coleoptera of the West Indies. 213 

have overlooked the discrepancy between Olivier's original publication in 
1790 and his later work (Cf. H. S. Barber, Proc. Ent. Soc. Washington, 
XYIII, 1916, pp. 117-118) by which guttata (Olivier) is validated. 

Family LII. BRUCHID^. 

Bruchus chinensis (Linne). Porto Rico (Van Zwaluwenburg) . 
* Bruchus amicus Horn. Porto Rico (Van Zwaluwenburg). 

* Bruchus sallei Sharp. Porto Rico (Van Zwaluwenburg). 

Bruchus obtectus Say should be substituted for B. obsoletus Say, when 
that name is used for the bean weevil; add the locality Porto Rico (Van 
Zwaluwenburg) . 

Bruchus rufimanus, change author to Boheman. 

Bruchus sinuatus Fahraeus (fide Horn) is a variety of B. quadrimaculatus 
Fabricius. 

Bruchus tetricus Gyllenhal. Cuba (U. S. N. M.). 

* Caryoborus nucleorum (Fabricius). Cuba (U. S. N. M.). 
Spermophagus hoffmanseggi Gyllenhal was proposed to replace robinice 

Olivier nee Fabricius. It is not equivalent to robiniw Fabricius as we have 
it in the Preliminary List but to robinice erroneously cited in Olivier, Ent., 
TV, 1795, no. 79, p. 7, pi. 1, fig. 4 a, b. 



Family LIIL TENEBRIONIM1. 

By a regrettable error, the recor.ds for the genus Ccelotaxis derived from 
Guadalupe Island in the Pacific Ocean, were included in our Preliminary 
List. ' They should all be stricken out, as well as the record for Conibius 
on page 461. 

Dacoderus dominicensis Horn. Cuba (U. S. N. M.). 

* Phaleria variabilis Quedenfeldt. Porto Rico (Gundlach). 

Strike out Rhipidandrus micrographus, as a misidentification of Eutomus 
cornutus. 

Strike out Cherostus as synonymous with Eutomus and C. jamaicensis as 
synonymous with E. cornutus. 

Change Eutomus sulcatus Gorham to Rhipidandrus sulcatus (Gorham). 
Numerous references to these genera are given in two papers: Proc. Ent. 
Soc. Washington, XV, 1913, pp. 188-193 and XVI, 1914, pp. 175-177. A 
letter from H. S. Barber states that he has recently examined larvse of Euto- 
mus fuhomaculatus (Dury) and E. cornutus (Arrow) and finds that they 
agree closely with the larvae of Eledona and Bolitotherus.

Change Rhacius sulcatus Dejean to Rhacius sulcatidus Champion. 

Family LIV. ALLECULIDiE. 

Allecula flavipes Jacquelin Duval. Bahamas (U. S. N. M.). The ref- 
erence of West Indian species to Allecula, which is possibly an exclusively 
Old World genus, is questionable in the opinion of Mr. Schwarz: as is also 
the identification of Isomdra sericea Say, which should perhaps read I. valida 
Schwarz, described from Florida. 



Family LVI. MONOMMID^. 

Hyporhagus ameus Thomson. Cuba (U. S. N. M.). This species prob- 
ably belongs to Aspathines Champion.

Definite records in this family are few. The single species mentioned in 
our Preliminary List may be more properly placed in Alleculidse and, though 
we have information of species of Orchesia, Canifa and Conomorphus occur- 
ring in Cuba from Mr. Schwarz, not one of them has been described.

Family LXX. SCOLYTID.E. 

The studies of Dr. A. D. Hopkins have made many changes necessary. 
The family name Scolytida? is restored and many species names are added, 
though it may be that some of them are intended to represent taxonomic 
units, which may later be shown to constitute a smaller number of biological 
units. Assuming for the present that each represents a species, the following 
list of Cryphalince is to be substituted (fide Hopkins, Rept. 99) for that given 
in our Preliminary List. 

Hypothenemus Westwood. 

H. obscurus (Ferrari). Cuba. 

H. lineatijrons Hopkins. Cuba. 

H. sacchari Hopkins. Nevis. 

H. parvus Hopkins. Cuba. 

H. fiavipes Hopkins. Cuba. 

H. abdominalis Hopkins. Cuba. 

H. brunneipennis Hopkins. Cuba. 

H. amplipennis Hopkins. Cuba. 

H. moschatoe (Schaufuss). Guadeloupe. 

H. ceiboe Hopkins. Cuba.

X. grenadensis Hopkins. Grenada. 

In addition, the following notes are derived from various sources : Kleine 
treats Hypothenemus eruditus Westwood and plumerice as identical ; he also 
cites Cryphalus mucronijer Wollaston from St. Vincent. 

Xyleborus ferrugineus (Fabricius). Porto Rico (Gundlach). 

Xyleborus inermis Eichhoff. Cuba (Kleine) ; Porto Rico (Van Zwaluwen- 
burg) . 

Xyleborus grenadensis Hopkins. Porto Rico (U. S. N. M.). 

Xyleborus sacchari Hopkins. Porto Rico (U. S. N. M.). 

Xyleborus perjorans (Wollaston). St. Kitts, Barbados, St'. Vincent 
(Barber); Jamaica (Cockerell). 

It is to be not^d that where these names are not repeated in Dr. Hopkins's 
list it is possible that the same insect is there recorded as a new species. 
Until his paper on Scolytid synonymy is published such matters can not be 
definitely treated. 

Family LXXI. ANTHRIBIDiE. 

* Aro?cerus fasciculatus (De Geer). Jamaica (Cockerell).
