    Article metrics


    WE congratulate the editor and author on the appearance of another half-volume of this important work. The present instalment is devoted to the homopterous family Jassidæ, subfani. v. Jassinae (including Acocephalinae), comprising twelve divisions, and subfam. Typhlocybinas, with two divisions. The species included are numbered from 2509 to 2696. An appendix is commenced, including additions to the Rhynchota Heteroptera discussed in vol. i.; and the portion now published relates to the families Penta-tomidae, Coreidae, arid Berytidae, and the additional species are numbered from 2697 to 2768. The general character of “The Fauna of British India” is so well known, and has been so frequently commented on, that it is only necessary to say that the present half-volume is similar to those which have preceded it, and that the high character of the series is fully maintained.
