It is with considerable hesitation that we adopt this family, butit will be noticed that the characters differ in several points fromthose of the Histerid^e, of which family the single genus Niponiuscan only be regarded at the most as a very abnormal member. Mr. Gr. Lewis, who first discovered the genus in Japan, wasinclined to regard it at first as probably belonging to th(Syntelild.e, to which family it bears a sort of superficialresemblance; when, however, he described it (Trans. Ent. Soc.Lond. 1885, p. 333), he referred to this, but went on to say thaton a more perfect scrutiny of the insects he was convinced thatthey were true Histerid, e, although their position in the familywas hard to determine, there being much that is abnormal in theirstructure. He would place the genus near Platysoma, from thehabits of the species and their mode of seeking food, but in theabsence of an anterior prosternal lo
