The galls are common upon the foliage of the bloodwood {Eucalyptus corymbosa) in the coastal districts of this State. The galls are round, varying from half to three-quarters of an inch in diameter; green reddish or dull yellow, growing upon the leaves, either singly, or in groups of two or three, and often quite aborting the infested leaves. The chamber containing the female coccid is at the base of the fleshy galls, with the small basal orifice opening out on the underside of the leaf. Adult female about one-sixth of an inch in diameter, con- rig. ioi.-A):eeiis praemoius, fichTa.dei. sisting of a shapeless irregularly rounded pale yellow mass, with no signs of legs or antennae; the anal appendage stout, cylindrical, dark brown, surrounded at the base with a dark ring; at the apex there are three slender finger-like projections, holding a mass of gummy secretion, which protects the opening. 166.

The adult female gall is an irregular rounded blister about half an inch in diameter, and swelling out slightly on either side of the surface of the leaf; th
