3. Apis Perrottetii  HNS  ,

Guer. Icon. Reg. Anim. Ins. p. 461.

Hab. Borneo (Sarawak). India.

The specimens from Sarawak are of a paler colour than those described by Guerin, but they agree in all the essential specific characteristics, and have the bands of pale pubescence at the base of the segments, as in A. Perrottetii  HNS  ; these bands, if the abdomen retracts after death, are hidden beneath the apical margins of the preceding segments.
