TitleTwo new species of the genus Helota from Burma
JournalNotes from the Leyden Museum
AbstractAmong the Helotidae of Mr. A. Fry’s collection, kindly sent to me for identification, there were two new species, both from Burma, one of which is very interesting on account of its being allied to the almost unknown Helota thibetana Westw. ( Mellii Westw.) from Simlah, the typespecimen of which, a female from the old collection of Melly, belongs to the Natural History Museum at Geneva and was lent to me for comparison by the able Conservator of the named Museum, Mr. E. Frey-Gessner. As Westwood’s descriptions of this species are very short (see Notes Leyd. Mus. Vol. XI, 1889, p. 110), I made use of this opportunity to describe the species at length; this description will be found at the end of the present Note. The species of Helota contained in Mr. Fry’s collection are the following: Helota Vigorsii McLeay. 1 ♀, Java. longipes Rits. 2 ♂, Assam: Manipur (Doherty).
