PREFACE.



The formation of a representative collection of the insect fauna
of a country is not as a rule considered to be the work of economic
entomologists. This is due to the fact that in most countries the
fauna has generally been fairly thoroughly worked up by auiateurs
and a good public reference collection in a museum is available for
the use of the economic entomologist. In Egypt, however, at the
time of the creation of the Department of Agriculture, there was no
such public collection, and the only works devoted to the insects of
Egypt alone, apart from a number of more or less incomplete lists
without descriptions, were three brief memoirs published by the
" Societe Entomologique d'Egypte." In view of these circumstances
the collection, of which the ensuing pages contain a list of the hitherto
identified species, has been brought together in the course of the past
four years with a view not so much to adding to the systematic know-
ledge of the fauna of the country as to assisting in economic work.

A well classified and identified collection is always essential as
the basis for both economic and biological research, since without
having a name for an insect by which it can always be recognized, it
is practically impossible either to benefit from the knowledge that
other workers liave obtained about it or to pass on .to them the
knowledge that one obtains oneself. Of course, in the making of a
large collection, large numbers of species of no importance to the
agriculturist are sure to be dealt with. Of the 154 families mentioned
in the following list, however, about 100 include species of economic
interest, and it is always useful to know something about the relatives
of a dangerous or a useful insect. Again, it is often almost as neces-
sary to be able to say definitely that a certain insect is not, and is not
likely to become, of economic importance as to be able to say that



IV



another is. And this can only be done by having a fairly complete
knowledge of the insects of the country.

One of the most important reasons for working up the fauna,
however, is in connection with the importation of insect pests. For
instance, Din-ran t, writing on "Tineina bred from Cotton Bolls" in the
" Bulletin of Entomological Research," August 1912, upholds the
idea that the pink boll worm was imported into India from Egypt,
the exact reverse of the actual fact, and the information which was
then available led Dudgeon, in his article on "The Pink Boll Worm"
in the " Agricultural Journal of Egypt," 1912, to express the opinion
that it had occurred in Egypt for many years, whereas it is now fairly
certain that it has been imported between 1903 and 1910. Neither
of these mistakes would have been made if the Lepidoptera of the
country had previously been properly worked up. If the pink boll
worm had been discovered in the original consignments of Indian
cotton which brought it to the country, nothing would have been
done to prevent its entry if such opinions as the above w'ere possible,
whereas if the distribution and history of the pink boll worm had
been known as it is now, steps might very easily have been taken to
prevent the calamity that the importation of this pest has proved to
be. On the other hand, if the fauna of the country is not properly
known, much trouble and expanse may be spent on trying to keep
out of the country an insect which is a dangerous pest elsewhere, but
which as a matter of fact may be already present, occurring in small
numbers only, being kept under control by an unfavourable climate
or other natural agents.

For much assistance in the identification of the species in the
following list we must express our gratitude particularly to tht
Imperial Bureau of Entomology and also to the following specialists :

Orthoptera : La Baume.

H vmenoptera : R. du Buysson, G. Meade- Waldo, Rev. F. I).
Morice, C. Morley, R. E. Turner, Prof. Gy. S/epligeti.

Coleoptera : Several local entomologists, particularly G. Ferrante
and A. Alfieri.

Lepidoptera : J. H. Dun-ant, P. P. Graves.

Thysanoptera : C. B. Williams.

Diptera : Prof. Becker.

Rhynchota : W. L. Distant, A. L. Montandon, Prof, R. Newstead,
Prof. Van Schouteden.
