Art. XXXIII.—List of the Insects recorded as having been found in New Zealand previous to the Year 1870.

[Read before the Otago Institute, 11th November, 1873.]

It is with considerable diffidence that I present the following list to the Otago Institute, for I am well aware that it must contain many errors, both of commission and omission; but as it has had the advantage of being revised and considerably added to by C. M. Wakefield, Esq., it is, I think, as complete and accurate as it can be made in the colony, and it will, I hope, be found useful as a first step towards collecting together descriptions of all the New Zealand Insects.

It contains the following number of species of each order:—Coleoptera, 265; Hymenoptera, 23; Diptera, 98; Neuroptera, 42; Orthoptera, 30; Heteroptera, 22; and Homoptera, 22; making a total of 502 species, but of these 15 are names merely, no description or figure having been published.

A list of the Lepidoptera will, I hope, shortly be published by Mr. R. W. Fereday. *
