A.M. Nikolsky

The second journey of N.A. Sarudni to the east of Persia was even more intersting than the first one because of its results.

This time she went into the south up to the Persian Baluchistan.1 In her collection can be found a large number of Indian forms.

A comparable route of this journey was published in the yearly publishing of the Zoological Museum in 1898.


Ophiocephalus gachua Ham. Buch.

This species is known from India and Afghanistan. It is found in the Bampur River, Persia, by N.A. Sarudni.
