The Descriptive Catalogue of the Lepidopterous Insects Contained in the Museum of the Honourable East-India Company is a notable work that was published in two volumes in 1828-1829. It serves as a catalog and reference for the collection of lepidopterous insects held in the Museum of the Honourable East-India Company.

This catalog not only provides descriptions of the various species of Lepidoptera (butterflies and moths) found in the museum's collection but also includes colored illustrations of new species and the metamorphosis stages of Indian Lepidoptera. The detailed descriptions and visual representations of these insects were instrumental in advancing the understanding of the diversity and biology of Lepidoptera in India during the early 19th century.

Additionally, the catalog includes introductory observations on the general arrangement of Lepidoptera, which would have been valuable for researchers, collectors, and naturalists interested in the study of these insects. While the catalog reflects the interests and collections of its time, it also holds historical and scientific importance as a record of the Lepidoptera species known to exist in India during that period.
