Shortly after having published my observations on the grey colored ♂ specimen of Dolichoprosopus maculatus Rits. from Batjan [vide Notes from the Leyden Museum, vol. XI (1889), p. 222 ¹)], I obtained a few male and female specimens of the typical colour from Halmaheira, which showed at once that the different colour of the covering pile is independent on the sexes and must be ascribed to a local variety. Moreover a second specimen from Batjan strengthened this opinion, for although being in a pitiable rubbed condition, it showed just enough of the pile to state that it was of the same greyish colour.
