As the insect under consideration, as well as the species im- mediately allied to it, is confined to tropical or sub-tropical regions, and no observations whatever can be made in this country upon its habits or life-history, the present account is of the nature of a com- pilation, and the accuracy of much of its information depends upon and is limited by that of the records supplied by investigators in tropical countries.

The cultivation of roses for this purpose is, however, limited to the southern slopes of the Great Balkans, as the flowers are nowhere produced successfully on the north.
