The genus Cicindela, a favourite with all entomologists, contains a very large number of species which are mostly distinguished by brilliant colours, and conspicuous markings. Although easily recognised by direct comparison, the structure of these numerous species is varied upon such uniform types, that much difficulty is found in identifying an um known one by description, and the descriptions given by authors are frequently either obscure from their brevity, or tedious from their length. This necessarily results from the want of success in dividing the genus into small groups defined by easily recognised characters; and it is much to be regretted that some of the entomologists of Europe, with large collections at hand, have not made an effort to produce a monograph of this beauti ful genus.
