I have tried to find Mungpoo, India on maps, but unsuccessful so
far. It is the type locality of Bengalia surcoufi (Diptera,
Calliphoridae). The original label reads: "India / Sikkim / Mungpoo /
3800' / 24.iii.1920". The collector is "G. E. Shaw" according to
Senior-White, Spolia zeylanica 12: 307, 1923. I have a feeling that
it is somewhere near Kalimpong / Kalimpang in the northernmost part
of West Bengal, but would like to be sure.
Can anyone help me?
