Agriocnemis falcifera n. sp. Agriocnemis exilis forma (c) Pinhey. 1951, Transv. Mus. Mem. 5: 124. This insect, descriptionbed tentatively in the above volume as a form of exilis Seiys, is actually nearer pygmaea (Rambur), of Seychelles and Asia, in general features, including the differential pterostigma, and like zerafica Le Roi in appendages, with the long tufts of hair. It is larger than zerafica and differs in other respects, the prothorax being more like gratiosa Gerstaecker.
