    In September 1949, an Entomological Survey of a part of the Western Ghats of Tinnevelly District, Madras State, commonly known as the "Singampatty Range" was conducted by a party of students, including the writer, under the leadersl~ip of Professor J. P. Joshua of the Madras Christian College. This hill range lies about SOGO'N and 77'40' E, and is roughly about 36 miles to the west of Tinnevelly proper. The general elevation is about 4,000 feet above sea level and, except for a few Cardamom and Tea Plantations, the hills are thicldy forested. Being soon after the close of the monsoon, the, time selected was best suited for the collection of forest insects.
