Abstract

The present paper contains notes of previously recorded forms and descriptions of a new genus and new species from the Solomon Islands.

To the Museum Collection there has been accumulating for some time material collected by missionaries stationed in the Solomon Island group, as well as by occasional visitors. Recently Mr. W. W. Froggatt paid a flying visit to this interesting archipelago, and while there collected such Arachnida as came his way, and these specimens he has been good enough to present to the Trustees. Specimens collected by Mr. Froggatt had been carefully handled, but much of. the old collection in our stores had been more or less roughly treated. Species, such as Nephila maculate, Walck., Argiope leopardina, Poc., Gasteracantha signifier, Poc., and G. metallica, Poc., are evidently very abundant on the islands.
