Excerpt from The Coccidæ of Ceylon, Vol. 1

The present work has been written with a twofold object. Firstly, to give a scientific and formal description of this little-studied but important group of insects; and, secondly, to enable planters and agriculturists in general to recognise these destructive pests, to understand their habits, and to learn how best to deal with them.

In the first place I have fully described all such species as have already been recorded from Ceylon, and have added descriptions of a very large number of new and hitherto unrecognised species collected in the island during the last five years. To show the proportion of these additions, I may mention that in 1891, when Mr, W. F. Kirby published his paper on the Hemiptera of Ceylon, only seven species had been recorded. In November, 1894, at the request of several entomologists interested in the subject, I drew up a preliminary catalogue! of the species that I had then found in Ceylon. In this list, which was delayed in publication, and appeared only this year(1896), I enumerated seventy-two distinct species. This large number will be almost doubled in the present work, and, when other parts of the island have been properly explored, it is probable that considerably over two hundred species will be recognised.
