New Year Greetings from CRIKSC

 It is happy to inform about the publication of the latest issue (volume 9)
of SAMAGRA, the journal of Centre for Research in Indigenous Knowledge,
Science & Culture (CRIKSC).

The main article of the present issue is by Prof. TC Narendran and his
team, describing five new insect species of curious biology. Prof. TCN, is
currently an Emeritus Scientist, at the Western Ghat Regional Centre of
Zoological Survey of India (ZSI), Kozhikode.

In this paper he and his team had described five new species which
parasites on a wood-boring insect from the forests of Periyar Tiger Reserve
of Kerala in the Western Ghats of India.

These are named as Metapelma periyaricum, Metapelma kokkaricum, Calosota
idukkiensis, Calosota iochroma and Tetrastichus demonaxi. Three of them are
named after the locality of collection (such as Periyar Tiger Reserve
(PTR); Kokkara- a place near Thekkady in PTR; Idukki district), fourth one
based on the metalic pink colouration, and the fifth one after the host
insect, Demonaxi decorus, a wood eating beetle. All the new species were
collected from the holes of a fallen tree in the Periyar Tiger Reserve.

The pdf files of the papers are uploaded to the SAMAGRA sites.


With best regards

KP Rajesh
