Consulting a few days ago W. S. Macleay’s »Annulosa javanica” (London, 1825) I was surprised to find in this work (p. 48) the description of a Chelonarium-species. This description seems to be overlooked, as the species is not mentioned neither in the Munich Catalogue (vol. III, p. 930) nor by Reitter 1), Chevrolat 2) and Fleutiaux 3) who have described other Oriental species of this genus. I therefore believe it not without interest to give here Macleay’s description of the first known oriental representative of this interesting genus.
