Abstract
Oemida gahani is a beetle which, in its larval stage, can cause serious. damage not only to seasoned wood but also to certain species of trees in plantations. The investigations on which this account is based have been of comparatively short duration and have been hampered by shortage of staff, but it seems advisable now to summarize what information we have so that future workers, including those forest officers in charge of affected areas, may appreciate the situation. At the same time gaps will become apparent 'in 'our knowledge of this' project which' should be regarded as a term one. Although damage has so far been recorded only from Kenya it may well be expected in Tanganyika and Uganda.
