From the preface:
"With this part, the study on Dermaptera from India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka is complete. However, in future when further explorations are undertaken, especially in whole of the Himalayas; North eastern Hills, Western Ghats and the Andaman and Nicobar Islands within lndian limits, a few more undescribed species may be discovered besides recording several others for the ﬁrst time from the area under study. A total of 152 species belonging to 46 genera under Apachyoidea and Forficuloidea are dealt with. The general pattern is almost the same as that of the previous two parts of the series.
Information on the zoogeography and species composition from the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, not known earlier, is provided, based upon recent studies by the author. However, zoogeography of the Order is discussed in detail in the Part I. [...] A revised list of taxa included in Parts I and II is given under Appendix I. The changes were necessitated in the light of studies for the taxa of Pygidicranoidea by Srivastava (1993). The description and all other details remain valid."
