Discobola dicycla n. sp. (Fig. 28.)
Similar to D. dohrni and D. ampla, and perhaps a variety of one or other, but shows the following differences: Flagellar joints all about equal in length, but becoming slightly and gradually more slender towards apex; last joint under four times as long as broad; hairs on upper surface rather conspicuous somewhat longer than joints. Pronotum rather bright ochreous, strongly contrasting with dark head and thorax. Abdomen also conspicuously paler than thorax. Wing-markings resembling those of D. dohrni, but those in centre separated from those at base and from those towards apex; a complete ring surrounding base of Rs and another below this, the two forming central fascia. Discal cell somewhat longer than in the other two species. Length of body, 9 mm.; wing, 11 mm.
