We would like to draw the user's attention to some entries which may appear to be, but are not, errors in this compilation.

Maleuterpes spinipes Blackburn (Curculionidae) bears two common names: 'spinelegged citrus weevil' and 'dicky rice weevil'. The latter common name is misleading in that the insect has never been recorded as associated with rice crops. The name, however, is a well-known one and has been recorded here in view of its frequent use in the literature.

Henosepilachna vigintioctopunctata (Fabricius) (Coccinellidae) is listed as having the common names 'twenty-six spotted potato ladybird' while Henosepilachna vigintisexpunctata (Boisduval) is listed as 'twenty-eight spotted potato ladybird'. It appears that the original describers of these two species (Fabricius and Boisduval, respectively) miscounted the spots.
