4. HecTaRTHRUM CYLINDRICUM.

Black: the head has the usual deep channels which charac- terise this genus ; two deep channels originating at the basal angles of the clypeus, run upwards, meeting a little before the vertex, thence passing off at right angles they continue, reaching the inner margins of the eyes, here becoming narrower they traverse the inner margins and curve round, meeting the origin of the deep sulcation ; the clypeus has a deep fossulet in the centre, the lateral margins of which are raised: the joints of the antenne in the female are about one-third longer than broad, slightly narrower towards their base ; in the male they are quadrate, having the angles rounded, as seen from above; the thorax elongate, having a marginal stria crossin at the base, from each angle of which a parallel stria is continu forwards to the anterior margin, which is continued on each side a short distance towards the centre: the elytra have a deep sutural stria from base to apex, continued along the outer margin up to the shoulder; a central stria runs at about an equal distance from the sutural and marginal strie; near to this towards the base is an ab- breviated stria.

Black: the head sculptured as in H. cylindricus, but having a sharp carina down the face, terminating in the deep fussulet on the clypeus, which has also a raised carina on each side; the thorax one- third longer than broad: each elytron has four strie independent of the usual marginal strie, the sutural strie uniting with the margi- nal one; a second stria runs parallel to the sutural one but becomes obsolete a little before the apex; a second pair of strie run down the middle of the elytra, the inner one commencing a little below the shoulder, the outer stria commences at the humeral angle, and both become obsolete a little before the apex: the femora red, tibie and tarsi rufo-piceous.
