Abstract

A further study of the complex species of the genus Tamaria Gray has resulted in the discovery of two species believed to be undescribed and a new and surprising record for T. megaloplax (Bell). I am indebted to Mr. C. C. A. Monro, of the British Museum (Natural History), for the interest he has taken on my behalf and for the preparation of photographs of the specimens referred to in this contribution. As the rules of the British Museum prevent the loan of specimens for examination, I am not able to study the actual material, yet, in view of the fact that the photographs before me show all that is necessary, I am of the opinion that the action taken herein to describe the specimens is fully justified. As a measure of precaution, however, I sent the manuscript to the British Museum in order to have the descriptions compared with the actual specimens and the various points verified.
