Three new species of Migdilybs are descriptionbed (M. elegans and M. pauliani from Madagascar, M. occidentalis from Nigeria) and a new key to species of this genus is provided. The nymphs of M. furcifer Hesse are descriptionbed, with notes on the adults, and the distribution of the Ozophorini is discussed.
Studies on the emergence and distribution of Eremnus cerealis Marshall in vineyards revealed that the peak of adult emergence occurs at about the end of November and beginning of December; the beetles shelter mainly in the soil within a radius of 15 cm from the stem of the vine. The larvae are evenly distributed around the vines horizontally, but are most abundant in the upper 15 cm of the soil.
Dr J. G. Theron has recently (1971) published some information on the biology and host of Zonocryptus ""xanthomerus Brullï¿½"", and credits me with the identification of this insect. Since I made the identification, it is my responsibility to correct the name that I gave. Z. ""xanthomerus Brullï¿½"", should have been Z. xanthopus Brullï¿½, and the name xanthopus is a synonym of Ichneumon luctor Thunberg.
