Appendix.

The following names represent unidentified descriptions; probably they are synonymous with some of the preceding. I do not quote the descriptions, which are of little value:—

64. Xylina spurcata, Walk., Noct., 631.

65. Orthosia infensa, Walk., Noct., 748.

66. Xylina provida, Walk., Noct., 1737; X. canescens, ib., Suppl. 757.

67. Orthosia communicata, Walk., Suppl. 716.

68. Xylina turbida, Walk., Suppl. 754.

69. Xylina vexata, Walk., Suppl. 755.

70. Euplexia insignis, Walk., Suppl. 724.

Walker and Butler quote two other species, Agrotis munda and Heliothis peltigera, but there is no reason to doubt that these records are erroneous, and founded on a mistaken identification.
