Dalbergia sissoo (Roxb.) (Leguminosae) has been recorded as the larval host plant of Dichomeris eridantis Meyrick. The gross morphology and duration of various life history stages have been recorded. The larval and oviposition behaviour has been studied in details. A Hymenopteran parasitoid has been observed to attack the pupae of the species under reference. The chaetotaxy of last instar larva has been studied in details.

This paper highlights the acoustical characteristics of the vocalizations of some Indian birds and their significance for behavioural, systematic, and conservation studies. The Indian birds investigated are known to use a varied range of species-specific vocalizations composed of simple, context-specific, monosyllabic, monotonous calls to highly varied, frequency modulated and complex songs. The frequency of most calls and songs ranged between 2 to 8 kHz. Non- passerine birds produced mostly simple vocalizations such as alarm, contact, flight, threat, territory and begging calls. Vocal repertoire of most passerines (songbirds) comprised songs and six to ten types of calls. Two categories of songs were mostly observed in bulbuls and robins. Type-A songs were discrete, composed of strophes or phrases preceded and followed by temporal intervals. These songs were simple, stereotyped, spontaneous, and common. Type-B songs were rare, female-oriented, and more complex. Song characteristics are highly diverse among Indian songbirds. The Common Tailorbird Orthotomus sutorius and Black-throated Prinia Prinia atrogularis, produced simple repetitive songs, while the Red-billed Leiothrix Leiothrix lutea and Verditer Flycatcher Eumyias thalassinus produced complex, frequency modulated songs. Females of bulbuls and mynas sang quite frequently, while it was rare in some species (e.g. Oriental Magpie-Robin Copsychus saularis). © Bombay Natural History Society 2012.
