    Description
     A cerambycid beetle, Abryna regispetri Paiva, 1860, is reported as a first record from India and is redescribed after its original description from Cambodia in 1860.  The present record of the species adds to its distribution range in southeast Asia.

  • Title
    Redescription, distribution and status of the Karwar Large Burrowing Spider Thrigmopoeus truculent us Pocock, 1899 (Araneae: Theraphosidae), a Western Ghats endemic ground mygalomorph
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    The genus Thrigmopoeus is endemic to the Western Ghats of India, and is so far represented by two species: Thrigmopoeus truculentus Pocock, 1899 and T. insignis Pocock, 1899. The distribution of T. truculentus was considered to be restricted to its type locality until a few populations were identified in other places. In this paper we provide detail morphometry and characters used in modern-day taxonomy to redescribe the female of T. truculentus, with additional notes on its distribution, range extension, burrow and habitat.
