>Can anyone help me locating "Kanthalla" in Sri Lanka? A fly specimen in
>NHMLondon by captured by Col. Yerbury 31 July 1890 is labelled "Kanthalla /
>Ceylon". I cannot find the "Kanthalla" in Times Atlas of the World
>Millenium Edition, neither on the web (except as the name of a 
>medicinal herb).
