This paper deals primarily with a collection made off the Mediterranean coast of Israel in 1947-50 by Dr. A Yashouv (Wirszubski). In addition collections made by Prof. G. Haas in 1933-35 and 1948-49 have been examined; of these the 1933-35 collection was originally identified by C. C. A. Monro of the B. M. (N. H.) and a few of the species were reported by him in 1937. However, much of his material was not reported and was deposited in the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and at the time of writing was not available for study, but the remaining material in the B. M. (N. H.) has been re-examined and details on it are included here.
In the Systematic Section remarks on species have been cut to a minimum since the majority of them can be identified directly from Fauvel 1923 or 1927. Altogether 48 species of Polychactes are here reported from Israel, of which one is new to science.
My thanks are extended to Dr. A. Yashouv, Prof. G. Haas and Prof. K. Reich for having provided this material for study, part of which is now deposited in The Hebrew Uniyersity of Jerusalem and the remainder in the B. M. (N. H.).
