During a collecting trip this autumn and winter in Assam's eastern Naga Hills and Manipur, a number of interesting specimens were secured which seem to warrant preliminary description prior to further publication. The localities of all these forms are within the Naga Hills District or the Chief Commissioner's District of Manipur (formerly Manipur State), and will be dealt with in detail in a later paper. I am most grateful to the authorities of the British Museum, the United States National Museum, and the American Museum of Natural History for allowing me to examine comparative material in their care.
