Through the kind offices of my friend Mr. M. Breuning, chief-engineer of the Dutch-South-African Railway-Company, the Leyden Museum was enriched with a small collection of Reptiles. Dr. Helkenberg, who collected these animals at the confluence of the Comati- and the Crocodile-river, about 90 KM. inland of Lorenço Marques and 200 M. above the level of the sea, and who afterwards presented them to our Museum, has a claim to our gratitude, as 11 species of the 23 collected ones were desiderata to our collections. In the following list I add an asterisk before the names of the species that were not untill now represented in our collections.
