The first of these species is very interesting as it belongs to the same section as the recently described Helota Candezei Rits., from Sumatra (see ante p. 199). It has been communicated to me by my friend René Oberthür who received it from Maria Basti, a christianity in British Bootaug not far distant from Pedong in Sikkim and founded by the Missionaries of Monseigneur Biet.
