Description

Plate showing, from top to bottom, Homoeogryllus venosus, Aularches miliaris, and Schizodactylus monstrosus. Schizodactylus monstrosus (referred to under the synonym Gryllus monstrosus) is described by the author as follows:

This very angular creature is found in the vicinity of Bengal, where, according to the information of Mr. Fichtel, it is by no means common. It lives under ground like the Gryllus Campestris, and some other well known analogous European insects of this tribe.
