The following observations were made on tours in the Central Provinces and Berar, in 1908 and 1909. The first of the tours comprised a visit to the hill of Asirgarb in Nimar (26-28. ix. 08) and a journey by road from Ellichpur over the Satpuras through the forests of the Melghat to Lewada where the Sipna valley opens towards the river Tapti, (3-19. x. 09): the second comprised a visit to Nagpur (14-22. ii. 09) and the third an excursion into the Melghat from Akot, along the Ban valley and to Jalgaon in the Buldana district (16-'-26. ix. 09). The weather during the last tour was unsettled. The notes are fragmentary; but years m ay pass before an opportunity occurs for making them more complete. The chief point in them is connected with the cotton plant,-chief, because for those who are trying to breed out of our cottons improved races, it is essential to recognize the extent of that cross-pollination in the field which will level down what they are raising up. The insects have been determined for me by Messrs. H. Maxwell-Lefroy, .E. Brunetti and C. A. Paiva, to whom I offer my best thanks.
