Euparatettix dandakaranyensis Gupta sp. nov. is described from Bastar, Chhattisgarh, India. A brief comparison with the type specimen of Euparatettix sikkimensis (Hancock, 1915) formerly placed within the genus Xistra is given. A key to the species of the genus Euparatettix known from the Indian subcontinent is provided. © Copyright 2016 Magnolia Press. Source

abs The published work making available the nomen Leptobrachium nokrekensis Mathew and Sen, "2009" 2010, bearing a date of publication of 2009, is shown to have been published on 3 June 2010. The taxon is further shown to be a member of the genus Leptolalax Dubois, 1983. Leptolalax nokrekensis (Mathew and Sen, 2010) is compared with the three known congeners from India (L. khasiorum, L. lateralis, and L. tamdil). A table of comparative data for all recognized species of Leptolalax is presented. © 2011 by The Herpetological Society of Japan. Source

Psilorhynchus rowleyi Hora and Misra 1941 known from the Chindwin-Irrawaddy drainage, formerly treated as a subspecies of the Ganga-Brahmaputra drainage species, Psilorhynchus homaloptera Hora and Mukerji 1935, is redescribed here based on newly collected materials and two syntypes in the Zoological Survey of India. It differs from the latter in having a larger eye (21.7-31.5 % head length vs. 13.4-19.4), a greater number of principal rays in the lower lobe of the caudal fin (9 vs. 8), a longer (vs. shorter) upper lobe of the caudal fin, fewer unbranched pectoral-fin rays (vii vs. viii), a higher number of predorsal scales (14-15 vs. 12-13), a lower number of transverse scales below the lateral line (2 vs. 21/2), a narrower caudal peduncle (44.0-52.9 % caudal-peduncle length vs. 57.9-76.2) and a dome-shaped (vs. slightly pointed) rostral cap. The lectotype of P. rowleyi was also designated. © 2013 The Ichthyological Society of Japan. Source

Strongylovelia lillyae sp. nov. is described from Kanyakumari district, Tamil Nadu, India and constitutes the first species of the genus from Indian subcontinent. The new species is closely related to Strongylovelia setosa Zettel & Tran and S. vasarhelyii Zettel & Tran from Vietnam. A distribution map and photographs of S. lillyae sp. nov. are presented here. © 2015 Magnolia Press. Source

Methanol leaf extracts of two Ethiopian traditional medicinal plants viz., Lomisar [vernacular name (local native language, Amharic); Cymbopogon citratus (DC) Stapf. (Poaceae)] and Bisana [vernacular name (local native language, Amharic); Croton macrostachyus Del. (Euphorbiaceae)] were screened for larvicidal activity against late third instar larvae of Anopheles arabiensis Patton, a potent malaria vector in Ethiopia. The larval mortality was observed 24 h of post treatment. Both plant extracts demonstrated varying degrees of larvicidal activity against Anopheles arabiensis. Cymbopogon citratus extract has exhibited potent larvicidal activity than Croton macrostachyus at lower concentrations. The LC50 and LC90 values of Cymbopogon citratus were 74.02 and 158.20 ppm, respectively. From this data, a chi-square value 2.760 is significant at the P<0.05 level. While, the LC50 and LC90 values of Croton macrostachyus were 89.25 and 224.98 ppm, respectively and the chi-square value 1.035 is significant at the P<0.05 level. The present investigation establishes that these plant extracts could serve as potent mosquito larvicidal agents against Anopheles arabiensis. However, their mode of actions and larvicidal efficiency under the field conditions should be scrutinized and determined in the near future. Source
