"Bunkri".—29 miles 4° E. of N.E. of Mount Hagen airstrip (no fishes). 4. "Jimmi River Camp".—South bank of river; rain forest and grasslands. 33 miles 6° E. of N.E. of Mount Hagen airstrip. Altitude 1,200 ft. 20–27 July, 1954. 5. "Korn Farm".—Banks of Wahgi River, Wahgi Valley, 5 miles E. of Mount Hagen airstrip. Altitude 5,200 ft. 11 July, 1954. 6.
