ARGILA, Wal.k. i32. ,4. ajn/s, sp. nov. Closely related to A. basal Walk., from which species it differs in having the dark sub-basal band, which separates the yellow area at the base of the wing from the rest of the wing, incomplete, and the entire costal half of the wing uniformly brown, the dark sub-basal band being represented simply by a subquadrate spot upon the inner margin near the base. The marginal and sub-marginal markings also differ from those of A. 3asal/s, being more distinct and darker towards the outer angle. Expanse, 2 7 ram. 133. A. basal/s, Walk. The female difl’ers fl’om the male in the much lighter color of the wings, and in having the pritnaries very greatly produced and strongly arcuate on the costa before the apex. The abdomen also, in the gravid specimens before me, is one-half longer than the posterior margin of the secondaries. The expanse of wings is, further, very much greater tha,n that of the male. Expanse, g,2 7 mm.; 3 8 ram. . TERPHOTHRIX, gen. nov.* /’. Palpi small, compressed, third joint very minute. Antennae about one-third as long as the costa of the primaries, heavily pectinated the whole of their length, the pect/nations compressed laterally and the extremity of the culmen curved downwardly.

The second pair of legs have the tibiae enormously swollen at the extremity, * ro+o-- tergus Oo capillus. the enlargement being densely covered with scales. This feature is especially noticeable in the female. The upper part of the abdomen is adorned with long tufts of hair, which are parted and spread out laterally in the case of the first four immediately succeeding the thorax. The two nearest the anal extremity are compressed and directed upwardly. The peculiar arrangement of these bunches of hair on the dorsal line of the abdomen presents somewhat the appearance of the tufts which are found on the backs of some cochliopod larvae. The primaries are subtriangular with the costa slightly rounded before the apex; the outer margin nearly sub.pyriform. straight; the outer angle obtuse; and the inner margin straight. The secondaries are The female is very like the male but larger and with a much stouter body, and has not, in any of the specimens before me, any trace of the very peculiar tufts, which are found on the back of the male. Type, T. lanaria, Holland. It is worthy of remark that the peculiar tufts are very liable to be abraded in dried specimens, and it is possible that these tufts may be found also in the female, though four very well preserved specimens do not reveal . any trace of them, except one in which two minute tufts appear toward the anal angle. 34" T. lanaria, sp. nov. Front and upper side of abdomen creamy-white. Anterior wings creamy-white, with the middle area clouded with warm brown.

There is a narrow light sub-basal transverse line and a transverse submarginal line produced on the second median nervule toward the margin, both of which lines are pale, shaded on the side toward the base with darker brown markings. At the point where the submarginal line is produced outwardly, there are a series of blackish spots defined inwardly by creamy dots and succeeded outwardly by black checks upon the fringes. The secondaries are pale creamy-white touched with dark brown on the fringes about the middle of the outer angle. The under side of both wings is white with the base and middle area of the prinaries dark sid.e. fuliginous.
