PREFACE.

1 HE object of this book is to present a Catalogue of the well-established species of Longicorn Coleoptera, with references to where they are figured and to the more important synonyma, with descriptions of some species which appear to be as yet unnoticed in Entomological works.

It is intended for the following purposes :

1 . As a list of the species contained in the Museum Col- lection. They are marked B.M. in the outer margin.

2. To point out the Desiderata of that Collection at the period of publication.

3. As labels for the Cabinet.

The species marked Chevr. Coll. have been compared with the corresponding species in the extensive collection of M. Chevrolat of Paris, which include the type specimens named in the Baron Dejean's Catalogue.

The remaining Parts are in progress, and will follow as soon as they can be completed.

1. Tomopterus Staphylinus. B.M.

T. thorace antice et postice flavo anguste marginato ; elytris linea obliqua fiava a humero ad apicem currente ; abdomine nigro, seginento primo testaceo ; pedibus subnigris femoribus ferru- gineis.

T. thorace villoso, marginibus anticis posticisque flavo anguste ornatis, elytrorum parte laterali diruidiata pallide cinnamomea, abdominis segmentis subtus flavo marginatis; antennis, articulo primo basi rufo.

Upper parts of a blackish-brown, front of head with golden- coloured hairs, antenna; of a blackish-brown with the basal por- tion of first joint rufous. Thorax covered with long black and cinereous hairs, the anterior and posterior margins narrowly or- namented with short yellow hairs ; front margin of metathorax with a line of yellowish hairs ; the lateral half of the elytra of a light cinnamon-brown running into yellow on the inner margin, the shoulder and the space about it rather coarsely punctured;

cerambycidjE. 177

mesothorax on the hinder margin with two patches of yellow hairs : ahdomen black, the two basal joints above yellow, the terminal joint above covered with silky yellow hairs ; the posterior mar- gins of the segments below rather widely bordered with golden hairs. Legs blackish, covered with cinereous hairs ; femora of hind legs at the base and tip yellow ; the basal half of posterior tibiae yellowish. In another specimen seemingly of the same species, the third and fourth joints of the antennae are some- what rufous at the base, while the cinnamon-brown marking of the elytra is limited to the shoulder and to two short lines directed backwards from it, the space between the fork being black.

Length from 3% to 4 lines. Hab. Guatimala (Coll. Deby).

4. Tomopterus Larroides, n. s. B.M.

Very closely allied to the last species, with the thorax more transverse, more gibbous on the sides, and with two patches of yellow hairs placed transversely ; the scutellum is covered with golden-yellow pile; the femora of the hind legs at the base are pale ; the first joint of the antennae is black at base. Hab. Amazon (Santarem). (Coll. Bates.)

There are specimens with the scutellum black, and a blackish- brown vitta runs down the patch on the lateral half of each ely- tron ; this is sometimes so wide as to render the patch almost obsolete ; these specimens appear to be males.
