This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 

to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 

to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 

are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other maiginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 

publisher to a library and finally to you. 

Usage guidelines 

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing tliis resource, we liave taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying. 
We also ask that you: 

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for 
personal, non-commercial purposes. 

+ Refrain fivm automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine 
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the 
use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help. 

+ Maintain attributionTht GoogXt "watermark" you see on each file is essential for in forming people about this project and helping them find 
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it. 

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner 
anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement liabili^ can be quite severe. 

About Google Book Search 

Google's mission is to organize the world's information and to make it universally accessible and useful. Google Book Search helps readers 
discover the world's books while helping authors and publishers reach new audiences. You can search through the full text of this book on the web

edge of basal area, bntonly defined in Che middle of wing; a few dark dota con- 
nect this shade along middle of wing with a similar dark shade between end of 
cell and termen above middle of wing. The ocellic apot is conrolorona, but with 
ahining scales on sides and two or three black borixontal lines; before (his spot 
on dorsum, and outlining it internally, is a amall triangular dark spot. On the 
male coitul fold are fonr or five dark dashes, between Ibe fold and middle, two

The most oomraon raialake in identification has been to name all 
of the pale fawn or straw-colored males as radialana and all of the 
reddish females as femtgituma, notwithstanding they are nearly 
double the size of the latter ; and sometimes the females of radiatana 
have been named as female formotatia. Formoaana, in its turn, on 
more frequently, the males, are usually named aspidiecana.

Thia species is close to my J5, 'ilinfoliana, bred from ilex in New 
Jersey aud North Caroliua. It is a generally larger and lighter 
species, and can be separated by the absence of the oblique 
brown line from end of cell to apex, which is always present in

Mr. Haiinbach, in whose honor the spedes is named, haa collected 
scores of specimens in the daytime resting on the fence of a summer 
garden at the corner of Allegheny Avenue and Broad Street. The 
garden is fiiled with many varieties of ehruba and trees, and a care- 
ful examination early in May would certainly disclose the larvie 
twisting the young leaves of a plant allied to ilex. 

The generic notes regarding ilieifoliana will also apply to this 
species. They are both allied to Clemens salieiana and saltcicolana.

Forewinfi: gray lab -white, tinged with cinereons ground color. A conspicuous 
wide-red fascia from middle of coela Ui anal angle, broadest on coeta and as wide 
there as one-third to un»-hiilf of width of wing, gradually tapering to an obtuse 
point at anal angle. Tbe inner edge of this fascia curves evenly and obliquely 
ontward, the outer edge is Binuate, slightly concave above and convex below the 
middle, tbe onter edge is outlined by a slender line of white lustroDS scales from 
casta nearly to anal angle, turning inward above and defining the obtuse lower 
point of this fascia. Beyond tbia fascia tbe entire outer margin is clouded with 
this same color, hat a shade paler, roughly In the form of a triangle with the 
base rating againiil the citls, the other two sides coming 1o a point just beyond 
end of cell. Above this triangle tbe casta from fascia to apex is ground color. 
On the extreme apex are a few blackish scsles, sad in some of the darker speci- 
mens a few of these scales are scattered over fiiscia and triangle. There are no 
distinctly defined subapical coeCal spots, but four or five short streaks of more 
lustrous white can be observed in some specimens. A basal area is only well de- 
fined in some of tbe darker specimens, in these it covers tbe inner third of wing, 
angulated on cell and of a light shade of brown. In the m^ority of specimens 
this light brown basal color shades into tbe ground color, without very distinct 
line of demarcation. A few dark dots mark this area in some specimens, usually 
paralleling the fascia. The central fascia is narrowly edged with a whiter shade 
than tbe ground color. Tbe male casta is slightly curled up from base to outer 
edge of fascia, and iu the hollow thus formed is a nanvw line of dark leaden

This is the easteru representative «f the Califnrnian americana 
WIsra. Since the note published in Froc. U. S. Nat. Mus., xxviii, 
362, 1905, I have received additional material which makes it very 
evident that the species are distinct. I take pleasure in dedicating 
the new form to Lord Waisingham, whose careful work on North 
American Tortricids is so well known and appreciated.

This species was determined as Quoecia georgtana Walk., with 
a query, by Prof. Fernald, for Dr. Dyar's paper on " Notes on the 
Winter LepidopUra of Cape Worth, Fla.," Ent. Soc Wash., Vol. 
IV, p. 466, 1901. 

Tortrix «lbl««Hi«B« Clem., kiid Ttrietie^ 

I have a large series of fifty or more specimens of this species, and 
find they separate very nicely into four weli-defiiied varieties, with 
practically do connecting links. Clemen's type, which is well pre- 
served in the Academy of Natural Sciences, Philadelphia, is of the 
pale lemon-yellow and ochreous form, with only a trace of the ferru- 
ginous shading. I have already described, in Can, Ent,, XXXVII, 
p. 9, 1905, as var. temipurpurana, the form in which all of the fore- 
wing is very dark purple, except a narrow basal area, a narrow 
band around termen and apex, and a ciistal spot of yellow, and now 
propose the following names to identify the other two varieties. 



Like t;pe, eiceptinK the extreme dorsal edge is stained with dark parple, cd- 
larKing at inner and outer fourth and contracted in the middle. 

Three specimens: Chicago, III., June, J. H, Reading; New 
Brighton, Pa., June 22d, F. A. Merrick. 



Like tf pe. except the rorewinir is overcast with a brliiht ochreish-red, except 
at the base, and narrowly on termen, which are yellow, and a ronnd jeilowisb 
■pot in middle of wiDg at end nf cell. A diBCingDishing feature of this variety Is 
,a wide, Bwerping carve from onler third of coata to anal aniile, which outline* Ihe 
oehreish-red area. 

Ten specimens; Montclair and Essex Co., N. J., June 14th to 
28t]i ; one specimen bred from krva on huckleberry. 

I think careful breeding may develop the fact that we have more 
than one species in the above. Besides huckleberry, they have been 
bred from rose and oak. I believe there is only one brood. The 
larvee are among the earliest in the spring, feeding on young leaves 
in the bud before they have unfolded.

black Kales, mixed with a few whitiib scales. Between tbii fascia and the base 
along the dnnnm are three small pat^'bea of pink icalea. There is a long oblique 
streak of pink scales from the middle of the dorsal margin lo the coata. Jnst 
before the apex and at the middle of the wing It eoonecta with a larfce circle of 
the same scalee, which oiTilples the onter third of wing, and enclosnaD immense

This species may be a variety of P. glraminoidea Grote, which it 
resembles. Beyond the central fascia of draminoidet is a shade of 
the same cohir as before tlie fascia, distiDCtly outlining it on both

This species is close to lepidana Clem., and I have had it so 
labelled with a query for some years, but a recent comparison with 
Clemen's type in the American Entomological Society's collectioas 
proves it to be distinct. I also positively identified as lepidatta a 
long series of specimens caught several years ago resting on, and

PAPEE II. 

TRYPETID^. 
(Plate I.) 

As mentioned in Paper I (published in the Trane. Am. Ent. Soc, 
XXXII, Sept., 1906), this material, with a few exceptions, was col- 
lected by J. A. G. Rehn and H. L. Viereck, chiefly in New Mexico, 
during the summer of 1902 ; also a few species collected in Mexico 
by J. F. McClendon in the summer of 1903. 

I have figured the wings of several described species, because they 
have never been given, and I think every description, especially of 
the TepArifis group, ti> be of value, should have a good figure of the 
wing. When this group is monographed, no doubt there will be 
many synonyms, at least varieties, established ; many on account of 
the reliance placed upon the description of the wings which have 
not been figured. 

The genera Ermna, TephriiU and Euareela are very poorly de- 
lined on account of their transmutation, and the only satisfactory 
way to treat them is to place them under TephritU, making the 
former and latter subgenera. In this paper I have not considered 
the genus £imna, excepting E. humtdu Lw., but have placed under 
Tepkritit all species having the TephritU wing design. I separate 
Eitaresta according to Coquillett, but it is not very satisfactory ; 
even Loew in his Monograph states that he is doubtful as to the 
validity of this genus.

Slraiaia is the original name of this genus, which Ijoew called 
Strau8»ia, as being a more correct form. Whether good or poor 
form, Desvoidy's name Strauzia has the priorty, and I therefore fol- 
low Coquillett in re-eatablishing the original name.

Agrees well with the description, excepting that the antenna 
reaches to the lower third of face. The thorax \% black, but appears 
cinereous from the pollinoee coating. The abdomen is grayiah-polli- 
nose on the middle of the dorsum and along the posterior margins 
of the segments, but there is a non-pollinose black spot in the mid- 
dle of each segment, forming a median dorsal stripe. Knobs of hal- 
teres black. The band passing over the small cross vein is the 
widest band on the wing, but doee not meet the next band at the 
posterior margin ; and the latter l>and, which passes over the poste- 
rior cross vein, is represented only by spots at the second, third, 
fourth and fifth veins. The small cross- vein is before the middle of 
djscal cell. The basal band is not distinct below the first basal cell,' 
except as a spot at the acute apex of anal cell.

of the Bternopleura aud a smaller spot on the hypopleura above the 
hind coxfe, black, more or less obscured by whitish pollen. The 
black area of the thoracic dorsum is limited mostly to the anterior 
part, and a narrow extension each side of a rectangular area which 
includes the two pair of dorso centrals. Sometimes this black area 
is contracted, leaving the lateral mai^na and the greater part of the 
posterior half of the dorsum, yellow. The bases of the second and 
following abdominal segments brown. The antennie, especially the 
tips, the tip of the proboscis, the extreme bases of the wings, the

Numerous specimens of both sexes, Cloudcroft, Beulah, and Laa

As Mr. Doan remarks, this species resembles T. albieep» Lw. ia 
the wing design, but the latter is readily distinguished by the forma- 
tion of the marginal drops at the apex of the wing, and the next 
inner row, which are concentric with them ; also the interspersing of 
minute drops among the larger disca) ones. The wing also ia nar- 
rower in proportion than in albiceps. 

I have before me a few specimens of murina showing a tendency 
of the apical drops to arrange themselves concentrically as those of 
albieepe. The alisence of the black alxlominal markings, except 
with the females is not constant, but where present are rather faint. 

Dr. Ooquillett has kindly confirmed the determination of my 
specimens.

scription and wing design agrees with this specimeD, which I com- 
pared with the typical E. araneosa at the National Museum. The 
basal spot of the first posterior cell iu the typical epeciraeos is some- 
times expanded the full width of the cell aod nearly to the small 
cross-vein, making the stigmatic band narrower. 

The typical description of E. araneosa Is not explicit enough as to 
the wing design, and the reference to figure 21, plate 10, of Lnew's 
Monograph is to me entirely misleading. Figure 4, plate 11, is 
nearer to it, excepting for the apical rays. This demonstrates the 
danger of describing a Trypetid wing without figuring it.

MYDAID^. 
Ktypbaa tawit««Ddl Will. 

Numerous specimens of both sexes from Alamogordo, N. Mex. 
(Viereck and Rehn). 

From this lot of well-preserved specimens I make the following 
Dotea, which will also serve to distinguish the sexes. 

The pile of the male is much thicker than that of the female, and 
in some places longer ; that of the thoracic dorsum more appressed 
and formed into four longitudinal stripes by a narrow bare black 
median vitta, which extends from the anterior margin to quite some 
distance from the scutellum, and also by two lateral ones, extending 
from the humeri to the scutellum. The lateral pallinose spots be- 
hind the humeri are sometimes indistinct, but in every case is more 
distinct in the female than in the male ; the dorsum of the female is 
also marked with two other fainter median pollinose stripes. The 
pleure of both sexes have, in addition to those of the slerno- and 
mesopleurie, similar silvery spots on the hypopleune and on the 
rufous anterior lateral angles of the tirst abdominal segment. The 
abdomen of the male opaque, at least not polished as in the female, 
except the yellow posterior margins, and these bands are narrower 
and that of the first segment more whitish than those of the female; 
the last segment shorter than the preceding. The legs of both sexes 
sometimes brownish, especially the femora ; the hind tibiee of the 
male with a distinct apical spine, at the base of which are one or 
two stout bristles ; of the female, in place of the spine is a tubercle, 
on which are three or four stout bristles. The wing veins of both 
sexes are sometimes brownish, especially towards the anterior mar- 
^n. Otherwise they agree with the typical description in Trans.

THE NORTH AMERICAN SPECIES OF THE UIPTEROUS 
FAMILY SCENOPINID^. 

BY E. T. CREBSOM, JR. 

SCENOPINID^. 

(Plate 11.) 

In workJDg over some material from Mexico and the southwest' 
em Uoited States, I found some species of this family that appeared 
new to me, and it being a small family I thought it a good oppor- 
tunity to make a eliort revisioa of the family, as known to North 
America, comprising notes and a few descriptions of undescribed 
sexes. 

This paper is intended to be of use, especially to the student who 
has not the collection or library at his disposal needed for the deter- 
mination of the species of this family. The tables will aid in sepa- 
rating the genera and species. 

The figures given here were drawn, mostly, from these southwest- 
ern species, aud will help in the generic descriptions ; and the data 
given, except where otherwise mentioned, is from the material in 
the collection of the Acad. Nat. Sci. Fhila.

apex not depressed; abdomen flat, broad; each segment with a 
transverse furrow and their posterior margins turned up; the second 
segment has two minute approximated opaque spots on its dorsum. 
Legs short and stout. Wings rather broad but longer than the

110 NORTH AMERICAN DIPTERA. 

On accouDt of its robust appearance and tlie general shape of the 
head and abdomen, it eeems to form, with the genus Metatriekia, a 
separate group, wherein Metatrichia differs in its closed first poste- 
rior cell. 

In some species the sexes vary considerably in size, the male being 
the smaller; even the same sex will vary, thus making this charac 
t«r very unreliable. In species where the female shows some white 
on the posterior margins of the abdominal segments, the male is 
very likely to have several segments entirely white.

This is a somewhat smaller species. The male has never before

Much smaller than S. /eneelralU, which it resembes, and the third

an unbrokeo curve with the thorax when seen in profile; entirely 
clothed, excepting the dorsum of abdomen, with scale-like hairs, which 
OD closer observation are elongated bulbs inserted on short stalks, 
giving the insect a whitish appearance. The Jirsl posterior cell 
closed and petiolate. 



This species is very well described by Oaten Sacken. Three 
males and two females from Alamogordo, New Mexico (Viereck 
and Reho), differ from the typical description in thai the head and 
thorax do not seem to have that blackish-bronze color; the scales 
are all clear white ; the costal cell is not brown ; and the distance 
between the two cross-veins is not shorter than the posterior cross- 

PSEUDATRICHIA O. 8. 

The species of this genus, as far as I have seen, are of an entirely 
different shape from those of the other two genera, and seems to 
form a distinct group in themselves by their slender, elongated bodies 
and legs. 

The following characters are typical for our present species, and 
as to our present knowledge of the genus : slender, elongate species ; 
thorax longer than broad, slightly arched above ; scutellum rather 
prominent, but not large; abdomen narrow, cylindrical, not flat; 
legs slender, elongated ; wings narrow in proportion to their length, 
first posterior cell closed and petiolate.

Of all the species of this geuus, except the type Atrichia longurio 
Lw. (which I have not Been), unieolor is so diiTereDt from the others 
that I doubt if it should be included with them under the same 
genus. Not knowing; the generic type, and aa the typical descrip- 
tion does not give sufficient structural characters, I cannot say which 
of the two forms are typical, and therefore make no attempt to erect 
a new genus, leaving that to the monographer, or to some one who is 
fortunate enough to see Loew's type. 

The difference referred to is as follows: head longer than high or 
nearly spherical; eyes in the same proportion; front horizontal, 
descending only near the antennte; the thorax posesses a wart like 
process, in a depression just above each fore coxse, which is, in this 
species, clothed with rather long fine hairs; the abdominal segments 
dilated at their posterior margins, appear to overlap. The form of 
the head and abdomen especially are very noticeable. 

The female of this species has never been described, but ie very 
similar to the male, except that the front is parallel and minutely 
rugose, not pcilished, except along the orbits, £oth sexes have 
upon the dorsum of the second abdominal segment two minute vel- 
vety black spots surrounded by a polished area. These spots, J 
notice, are present in nearly every species of this family. 

One of both sexes from Alamogordo, New Mexico (Viereck and 
Rehn). One female from Cloudcroft, New Mexico (Viereck and 
Rehn), PI. II, fig. 8 and 9, differs somewhat from the typical species 
in that the head is longer; the eyes likewise elongated; antennie 
black; abdomen proporti(>nal«ly longer, with its dorsum entirely 
granular, opaque; the two spots on the second segment wanting; 
the third section of the third vein longer than the last section.

CONTRIBUTIONS TOW4RD 4 NONOOBAPH OF 

THE CEBATINIU^ OP NORTH AND 

niDDLR AMERICA. 



BY HAKRY SCOTT SMITH, LINCOLN, NEBRASKA. 

It was the ambition of the writer, when this study was first under- 
taken abuut a year ago, to present at an early date a complete 
inoiingraph of the family Ceratiiiidie as represented in North and 
Middle America, Conseqnenlly numerous letters were written to 
different Hymenopterista and collectors throughout the country, 
with the object in view of getting together a large amount of n)ai«- 
rial which would correctly represent the fauna of the territory which 
was to be included by such a study. Fur the region north of Mexico, 
in which the number of species is comparatively email, the results 
were fairly satisfactory, but for the remaiuder of the territory, 
Mexico and Central America, where the fauna is exceedingly rich 
and varied, it seems next to impossible to get material at the present 
time, owing to the scarcity of collectors in those localities. It is 
hoped that this paper, preliminary as it must necessarily be, will be 
effective in attracting the attention of collectors and others to these 
most interesUng and beautiful little bees, and that within the not far 
distant future it wilt be possible to expand it into a complete and 
representative monograph of the family. 

In all twenty-nine species are considered, of which nine are de 
scribed as new, this number including all species known to have 
been recorded from the above region up to the present time. A 
large per cenL of the species from Mexico and Central America are 
known in one sex only, and this condition will of course exist until 
numerous specimens are brought to light from those localities. The 
greatest difficulty in the study of the genua is in the extreme simi- 
larity of the females of certain species, of which the males are very 
easily separated. In most cases, however, a close study of the punc- 
turation and of the infuscation of the wings, together with the gen- 
eral habitus, will serve to separate them, although the differences 
are often hard to express in a table. Concerning the clia

be used, the presence or absence of lateral face marks seems to be 
constant, and is used as one of the first divisions In the table to the 
females. The coloration of the tubercles, however, is not so relia- 
ble, although as a general rule it is a good character. I have a 
specimen ofdupla with dark tubercles, also one ofpaeifiea, yet these 
species are placed under the division having them light or cream 
colored. In the case of the males the shape of the apical plate is 
very constant, though often difficult to describe in words, but this is 
provided for by the sketches. 

It is my pleasure to express thanks to Mr. Myron H. Swenk for 
his valuable criticisms and for looking over the manuscript, to Prof. 
L. Bruner, Mr. Henry L. Viereck, Prof. T. D. A. Cockereil, Mr. 
C. F. Baker and Abbe V. A. Huard for invaluable assistance ren- 
dered, and to many others who have by furnishing specimens or by 
other means aided me.

Mr. Viereck has examined the mouth parts of a specimen of the 
type series of C. lejonengii Cresson, the type of the genus Zadonto- 
meriM, and finds the the maxillary palpi six-jointed, as in the other 
species. The triangular tooth on the hind femora is present in a 
majority of the species of (kratina, and the shape of the apical plate 
is hardly generic in character.

strongly irideacent, uerTorea and stigma dark brown. 

9. Differs from the % in having only a broad reetangular stripe on the cly- 
peus, no white on the labruro, and in the sparsely punctured scntellnm.

Cbeeks sparsely but deeply punctured, occiput densely so, Uesothorax quite 
densely punctured, with three indistinctly impressed longitudinal lines. Scn- 
tellnm and postscutellum finely and closely punctured. Superior face of metn- 
tborai longitudinally striate, posterior face punctate. First segment of abdomen 
almost entirely amootli. second and third finely punctured, remaining segmenls 
rugose, fringed with quite long whitish hairs. Apical plate shaped similarly to

One female in gtiod coodition. This has the wing fbrni of elimata, 
but is much mure evenly gray than any example of that species that 
I have ever seen, and has almost black secondaries, whic}i never 
occur in the older species. There are other differences in details of 
maculation, such as the absence of basal black streak, which may be 
better pointed out when additional material is at had. The speci- 
men was taken at sugar by Mr. J. A. Grossbeck, 
Semlophora atomn n. sp. 

Qrouod color of the usual light red brown, more or less washed with grey, so

tboniz concolaniua, save that the front may b« gray iu a brown specimen, and 
tbe aides of tbe palpi are deep black isb-bnrno. Primaries more or less powdered 
with black atoms, some specimens very evenly irronle, with all the usual mark- 
ings ellber obsolete or very faintly defined. In tbe best marked example tbere 
is a broken black baaal line, marked hy scattered scales. T. a. line marked by 
an oblique dusky coeul streak In all specimens, below that lost or traceable 
obliquely lo near tbe middle of inuer margin. T. p. line usually marked on

Zfafr.— Pullman, Washington, August 21, 1897. 
One male, in good condition, from Prof. C. V. Piper. This spe- 
cies has been in my collection for many years associated with the 
female of demarius, also now described. I could never decide 
whether I had one species in which the sexes differed markedly or 
whether there were two allied species, and therefore waited for addi- 
tional material. The occurrence of a male demarius has enabled 
me to decide the question satisfactorily. The antennie are serrated 
and bristle tufted, and the species is allied to vertiUU in type of 
maculation. As I cannot actually demoustrate any spinulation 
of the fore-tibia, perhaps a generic reference to Anomogyna as de- 
fined by Hampson may l>e better; but as in demarius, which is 
closely allied, there are none visible in the female, though they are 
obvious in the somewhat defective male, I prefer to hold the species 
here for the present, until more material will enable the question to 
be settled.

/fafi.—California, W. D. Urban, 1906, 106; Easton, Washington. 
One male, the smaller example from California, was sent by Sir 
George F. Haiiipaon for identification, and is somewhat defective 
and rubbed ; one female, the larger example from Washington was 
probably from Prof. Piper's lot, although not dated and without his 
label ; but it is an almost pei^ect specimen, and froiu it the descrip- 
tion was chiefly made. As already noted I had the male_f!^tM asso- 
ciated with this female until the specimen from the British Museum 
furnished an exact mate to it. In this male the anteunfe are very 
strongly serrated and tufted, and the spines on the anterior legs are 
obvinus. This, therefore, belongs to Lyeophoiia as defined by Hamp- 
son and to which Selagrotu is referred as a synonym. For the pres- 
ent 1 am not quite ready to agree to this, and therefore hold to my 
generic reference.

apecimeng are all in good condition 8o far as primaries are concerned, 
three of them have been papered, and the others have the abdomen 
greasy or rubbed so that the character of the tufting is obKcured. It 
seems probable that the patagia are a little uplifted, that there is a 
somewhat prominent posterior tuft on the thorax, and that there is 
a series of little abdominal tufts, at any rate in the male. The fVon-

This is allied to baboquavaria in type of markings, but is smaller, 
paler gray, with diffuse markings and darker head and thoras. 
Judging from the allied species the female will be larger and darker 
and may be more definitely marked. I do not remember having 
seen this form in other collections. 

Oxreoemla jttmm n. sp. 

Qronnd color gray over a luteons base. Head a little less powdery than the 
thoracic disc but as a whole both are powdered with black scales, which are more 
massed iwsleriorly on the tuft, which is less prominent than in the type form and 
not metallic. Abdomen yellowiBh or whitish like the secoridsries. Primaries 
with all the transverse maculation obscure, strigate with white and black. A 
dusky shading eilends from apex to the inner margin within the anal angle and 
this in part relieves the very irregular and fragmentary, diffuse pale s, t. line. 
Tbe claviform extends from base to beyond tbe middle of the wing, is narrow.

Kerrville. Texas, May 24th to 30th (Dr. Barnes). 

Five male and thirteen female specimens, mostly in good condi- 
tion and mostly of the desert material sent iu by Mr. Hutson. 
There is a little variation in the distinctness of maculatiou, and tlie 
males are uniformly smaller and paler than the females. In the 
strigate type of maculation this species resembles ftmmamila, but Is 
smaller and with more obtuse and broader primaries. From the 
more typical species it is separated by the character of the posterior 
thoracic tuft., which ia not metallic and does not consist of broadly 
flattened scales. It is really more like a very small Oneocnemu of 
the ehandleri group, and not unlike ijraeillima Grt. 

Oxycnemls adnstna n. sp. 

Qroaud color dull ashen-gray over luteoua. Head chocolat«.hrowo in front,

claviform, rery faintly indioated by scattered white scales, wbich extends nearly 
to the t p. line. The t. p. line is smoky brown, siogle, followed by a narrow 
paler shade, acutely angled over (he cell, thence evenly oblique to tbe inner mar- 
gin a little beyond the middle, hotb brown and pale shadings better marked to- 
ward the margin. S. t. line very irregular, broken, whitish, preceded by darker

site the cell and in thesubmediao interspaces. There isa whitish streaking from 
the inner costal inception of the s. t. line and the reniform. Tbe ordinary spots 
are concolorons, narrowly and obscnrely white ringed, confluent, the elongate 
orbicolar entering the centra of the reniform. Terminal line black, dialiucl. con-

. AND COCEEBELL. 



THE COI'EOPTERA OF NEW NEXIC^O. 

BY H. C. PALL AND T. D. A. COCRERELL. 

The list of New Mexico Coleoptera was begun in 1893 as a card- 
catalogue in the Department of Zoology and Entomology at the 
New Mexico Agricultural College. At that time the principal 
sources of information were the excellent lists published by Dr. 
Snow in the Transactiona of the Kansas Academy of Sciences, and 
the records of Professor C. H. T. Townsend, the first entomologist at 
the New Mexico Agricultural College. There were, in addition, a 
number of records published at different tiroes by Drs. LeConte, 
Horn and others, and efforts were made to find and include all of 
them. Professor H. F. Wickham, of the University of Iowa, hear- 
ing of the proposed list, very kindly supplied his numerous manu- 
script records, m^nly from Albuquerque, and in addition identified 
iDODy species collect«d in the Mesilla Valley. The first part of the 
list (Cicindelidie and Carabidte) appeared in Bulletin 24 of the New 
Mexico Agricultural Experiment Station (1897), and the remaining 
families in Bulletin 28 of the same institution (1898). The list as 
then presented included about 1170 species and races; since that 
time it has nearly been doubled. During recent years all the new 
material has been examined by Mr. Fall, in whose cabinet most of 
it is, and all the descriptions of new species are by him. Verv im> 
portant contributiiina have been made by Mr. W. Knaus, as a result 
of bis several summer trips to the Sacramento Mountains; numerous 
other records are due to Mr. E. A. Schwarz, Mr. H. L. Viereck, Dr. 
Fenyes, etc., to all of whom detailed credit is given in the list. 

New Mexico is a region of more or less isolated mountain ranges, 
with desert country between. Thus the fauna of the higher levels 
finds itself cut off from possibilities of migration, and what are prac- 
tically insular conditions prevail. Indeed the desert is for many 
types of life more impassible than the sea, since the latter can some- 
times be crossed on floating timber. The fauna of no one of the^e 
New Mexico ranges is aDything like completely known, but we are 
familiar with species of snails and other organisms, endemic u|hiii 
them. It is altogether too early to say how far these mountains Jnay 
be endowed with peculiars type of Coleoptera ; because there has' not

been enough work done to even establisli & strong probability that 
any given form, known only from a particular range, is restricted lo 
it. An anal3-8i8of the distribution of the new species described in 
the present paper shuws that they come from many localities ; but it 
is perhaps significant that so many (14) are exclusively from the 
Sacramento Mountains. It may be added, that from the results 
obtained in the close study of plants, molluscs, etc., ve may expect 
that in many instances the insects of different groups of mountains 
will differ only in slight characters — being in the early stages of 
modification from the original more widespread types. This com 
paratively slight divergence will uot usually be thought worth 
recording in nomenclature, according to prevalent niethods, and will 
only be fully revealed by bJometrical and kindred studies. 

It will be convenient to enumerate the principal localities fur 
Coleoptera in New Mexico in groups, according to the regions and 
types of country they represent. 

Eastern Region (east of the Rio Grande). 

(1) Raton district (Colfax County): Raton, Barela Mesa, Chicorico 
Canon. This is just south of the Colorado line. 

(2) Trementina district, east of Las Vegas, on the headwaters of 
the Canadian River. Collector, Miss Alice Blake. 

(3) Santa Rosa district (Leonard Wood County): collector W. 
Knaus. In this general region also is Las Truchas (collector 
Miss Clara Gerhardt), which must not be confused with the 
Truchas Peaks. 

(4) Roswell district (Chaves County), on the Pecos River; including 

Diramitt Lake and Las Lake. This marks approximately the 
beginning of the Middle Sonoran in the Pecos Valley. 

(5) Carlsbad district (Eddy County), on the Pecos, about 65 miles 
south of Roswell. Eddy is the former name of Carlsbad. 

The collections from all of the above five districts are small, and 
the uiost eastern parts of New Mexico, within 50 miles of the Texas 
line, are unexplored for beetles. 

(6) Sierra Blaiica and Sacramento Mountain district, in Otero and 

Lincoln (bounties. Includea Eagle Creek, Rio Ruidoso (or Rul- 
doso Creek), Mescalero, Fresnal Creek, Cloudcrofl, Wootens 
and Highrolls. This is an extensive and isolated mountain 
region, possessing some remarkable endemic snails, and proba-

h\y endemic plants. It is mainly in the TraDsittnn Zone, but 
has large patches of Canadian (cf. Bailey, North American 
Fauna, No, 25). The Guadalupe range, of which the Coleop- 
tera are unknuwu, may be regarded as a southerD extension of it. 
The Manzano and Sandia ranges (their Coleoptera unknown) 
are between it and the Las Vegas-Santa F4 Mountains, but are 
cut off from both by arid lowlands. 

(7) Alamngordo-Tularoga district, including La Luz and Alamo 
Canon, all in Otero County. This is the Middle Sonoran area 
near the western base of the Sacrameutos. 

(8) Organ Mountain district, including Organ, Parker's Well, Fill- 

more Canon, Soledad Canon, Riley's Ranch ^ La Cueva, Drip- 
ping Springs and San Augustine Ranch. A range of sharp 
peaks running north and south, to the east of Las Cruces, in 
Dona Ana County. In general, it may be referred to the Upper 
Austral (Upper Sonoran) Zone. The San Andreas Mountains 
are practically continuous with the Organs to the north. 

(9) Mesilla Valley distinct, in Dona Ana County, Middle Sonoran 
Zone. This includes areas on both sides of the Rio Grande, but 
the Coleoptera all come from the east side. Las.Cruces, Mesilla 
Park and Mesilla are in this district, only a few miles apart. 

(10) Rincon district, in Dona Ana County, on the Rio Grande; 
Middle Sonoran. Here come also Hatch and Coiora'o, just 
across the river. 

(11) Engle district, Sierra County, about 36 miles north of Rincon. 
Collector Miss Nora Newberry. 

(12j Albuquerque district, in Bernalillo County. Here, passing up 
the Rio Grande, we reach the Upper Sonoran, though some 
Middle Sonoran elements still persist. Elba is on the Santa 
F^ Railroad a little west of Albuquerque. 

(13) Santa F& district; Transition Zone, including Tesuque (or 
Tsuque). Santa F^ Canons runs up into the Canadian Zone. 

(14) Pecos district, in San Miguel and Santa F€ Counties, on the 
upper Pecos River. This includes Glorieta, the Old Pecos 
Pueblo and Rowe. It may also be considered to include Man- 
zanares. It is Upper Sonoran, but bordering on Transition. 

(15) Thornton district, in Sandoval County, between Albuquerque 
and Santa Fe. Collector Dr. Fenyes.

linas River, in San Miguel Co., Transition Zone, hut not with- 
out Upper Sonnran elements. 

(18) Watrous, Mora County, about 20 miles northeast of Los

(Id) Beulah district, in the Las Vegas Range; Canadian Zone. 
Including Rociada, James Canon, Daijey Canon and Crew's 
Mesa. Here also may be cited Harvey's Ranch and the Vive- 
ash Ranch, though they are some little distance away. 

(20) Beatty's Cabin, on the headwaters of the Pecos River, not far 
from the Truchas Peaks. Collector W. P. CockereJI. 

(21) Rin de las Casas, in the Las Vegas Range, north of Beulah ; 
collector Dr. Sturgis. 

(22) Top of Laa Vegas Range, above Beulah ; Hudsimian Zone. 

(23) Truchas Peaks, between Mora and Rio Arriba Counties; Arc-

1903.) 

(24) Taos, in Taos County. 

(25) Taos Peak, in Western C(dfax County. 

(26) Embudo district, on the Rio Grande, in Rio Arriba County; 
Upper Sonoran. This includes Rinconada, and may include 
Ojo Catienta, which is about ten miles distant, but west of the 
Rio Grande.

(29 > Abiquiu, Rio Arriba County, west of Embudo. 

(30) Bland, in the Jemez region, Sandoval County. The Jemez 
Mountains have been very little examined for insects of any 
kind; there is little doubt that they will yield some very inter- 
esting species.

east comer of the TerriCorj'. This is an almost unknown re- 
gion, doubtless full of treasures. The Oanoo de Chelle may be 
listed here ; it is mainly in Arizona. 

(32) Fort Wingate district, McKinJey County, including Gallup 
and Coolidge. These places are not very far from the Arizona 
line. Zuni, also in McKinley County, is about 30 miles to the 
south. 

(33) Vega S. Jos^ and Chaves, in Valencia County ; collector Prof. 
C. H. T. Townsend.

(37) Cliff, on the Upper Gila River, in northern Grant County. 

(38) Silver City district. Grant County, including Lone Mountain, 
Finos Altos, Fort Bayard and Walnut Creek. This district is 
remarkable for the infusion of Arizonian types. It is much 
regretted that muthern Grant County has not been explored 
for insects.

150 AMERICAN COLEOPTERA. 

H. F. Wickham (Bull. Lab. Nat. Hist. Univ. Iowa, Vol. V, No. 3, 
1902). The Colorado list includes about 2165 species and subspe- 
cies ; the New Mexico one about 2148. That these lists are far from 
complete is evident from the fact that much smaller and lees varied 
areas have yielded many more species when thoroughly examined ; 
thus New Jersey has 2845, the District of Columbia 2975 ; while 
the British Islands, according to Sharp's list of 1883, had 3243 spe- 
cies, and a considerable number have since been added. Mr. \V. 
Enaus in 1902 made a short trip to the Sacramento Mountains in 
New Mexico, and added 18 genera and 57 species to the New Mexico 
list ; in 1903 he visited the same region, also stopping at Santa Ro^a, 
and added 8 genera and 25 species and varieties. I-ast year Miss 
Grace Eaton obtained about 30 of the more conspicuous species in 
Ponil Canon, and four were new to the list. It is evident that every 
fresh collection, for a good many years to come, will contain addi- 
tions; while the critical study of material already in collections will 
further swell the list. 

On the other hand, it may safely be. said that we have enough 
material Co determine the general character of the faun«, and to 
make intelligent comparisons with other faunte. No doubt we pos- 
sess the greater number of the species belonging to well known 
genera, which are especially serviceable for comparisons, because 
they have been elaborated in all local catalogues ; whereas additions 
among the obscure groups, such as certain of the Staphylinidfe. are 
at present nearly useless for comparative faunal studies. The New 
Mexico list is also fortunate in being mainly based on recent mate- 
rial, examined in the light of modern knowledge, and available for 
further study whenever Che occasion demands it. 

Comparing the beetles of New Mexico with those of Colorado, 
one is struck by the large amount of difference in the lists. Colo- 
rado has not, of course, the important and characteristic Middle 
Sonoran element, but the higher elevations are continuous from north 
to south, and one would expect a practically identical fauna. Botani- 
cal investigations, however, have revealed striking differences in the 
plants of the northern and southern Rocky Mountains, and a degree 
of endemicity among those inhabiting the mountain ranges which is 
quite surprising. The oaks ( Qitercua) are abundant in New Mexico, 
and have a luxuriant development as far nortli as Manitou, Colo- 
rado, and even beyond. But at Boulder, and north of Denver, gen-

er»lly, they are totally absent. On the western slope they go further 
Dorth, and oue species just enters Wyoming; but there are Done at 
all Id Wyoiniug, with this exception, and none in Montana. This 
alone would explain the northward limitations tA the distribution of 
the numerous species of Coleoptera which are attached to the oak, 
and various similar cases could be cited. It appears probable that 
the oaks were driven south during the glacial period, and owing to 
the unsuitability of their seed for being carried great distances, have 
been unable to recover their lost ground. Under these circumstan- 
ces, the ample powers of flight of certain of the oak-feeding beetles 
are of no service for promoting migration northward of the slowly 
moving line of oaks. 

The following figures will serve to illustrate the difierence between 
the Colorado and New Mexico lists;

It will be noted that New Mexico shows a greater proportion of 
non-Colorado genera than species; or in other words, the species 
found in New Mexico but not in Colorado are more likely to be of 
non-Colorado genera than in the reverse case. This is explained by 
the fact that the desert fauna in nearly all groups is rich in peculiar 
genera, but these are represented so far up as New Mexico by com- 
paratively few species. On the other hand, the boreal fauna, so 
strongly developed in Colorado, is largely characterized by the 
abundance of species of circunipoiar genera. 

In Colorado the eastern plains region has been little searched for 
beetles, and the corresponding region of New Mexico is also poorly 
known. There is no doubt that the plains will furnish manyspecies 
additional to the lists, and most of these will doubtless be common 
to both. The following are characteristic eastern species which are 
known to reacJi New Mexico, but have not yet been found in Colorado:

The New Mexico list coutaina over 135 Bucb species, indicating 
that the eastern fauna ia really crossing the plains to some extent, 
and not only reaching ua by way nf the northern muuntains. There 
are strong reasons fur believing that a considerable part of this 
migration is recent, and has been asaialed involuntarily by man. 
This afTorda, of course, a strong argument in favor of the speedy 
exploration of western regions, in order that their original fauna 
may be ascertained before it is unduly contaminated by introduced 
forms. Fortunately for the naturalist, the det«rt will not quickly 
or easily accomodate alien elements,* but it is quite otherwise in 
more ordinary localities; and as Perkins has shown in the Hawaiian 
Islands the result may be destruction as well as confusion. 

The number of species common to New Mexico and Soutliero 
California, but not known from Colorado, is over 160, indicating 
a wide-spread southwestern fauna ; but in general, the species of 
the Southern California coast region are nut those of the Rocky 
Mountains. 

We find over 30 names of New Mexico apecies listed from the 
Ijower Rio Grande, but not in the Colorado, Southern California or 
District of Columbia lists. Such are for example :

Because of the conspicuous place whici) these southern genera 
occupy in the fauna, an eutoraologUt arriving fr<>m the north or east 
is very likely to assume that the Middle Sunoran of New Mexico 
contains precisely the same elements as the Lower Sonoran of 
Arizona just as it has been asaumed that Florida ia typically West 
Indian, because its numerous West Indian genera attract attention, 
and the absence of innumerable West Indian types is not so readily 
observed. 

Since the Lower Sonoran of Arizona has auch conspicuous vege- 
table types Dot found in the Middle Sonoran — such as the giant 
cactus, the palo-verde and the crown of-thorns, it is but natural that 
it should also have its peculiar insects. No list wholly suitable for 
comparison has been published, but Mr. Schwarz has permitted us 
to make use of an unpublished list of species taken by Mr. Hubbard 
and himself at Tucson, Arizona, and from this we give a moderately 
long list of species not yet reported from New Mexico.

FALL AND COCKERELL. 219 

New Mexico ( Romero ville). Numerous specimens taken by Prof. 
Cockerel), to wiioni it gives nie pleasure to dedicate the species. 

By Hayward's table cockerelli would fall next to doloeu*, from 
which it differs by its slightly darker color, more transverse pro- 
thorax and pluri-striate elytra. The posterior dorsal puncture seems 
UDiformly farther behind the middle of the elytra than in dolosus. 

STAPHYLINID-iE. 
SI«pbTllllD« madestus a. sp.— Most nearly allied to foitater *pd ctnnu- 
MOpttTnt, wiTh the Utlrr or nbleh <t agreeH closely In form anil size. The eolor 
Ih nearly anirnrmly blnck in mature gpeciniena, the tibice aod tarai brownish, but 
in some eiHmples the elytra are in part obscurely rerruglnoni. Head Boblrian- 
gular, nearly equal in wiclib to the prothorai, aideE feebly corvergeDt in front; 
prothomi nut at all narraned anteriorly, densely, not i-oareely punctate and irith 

witbaut well-deflned double line of Telvety spota, which are, hnweTer. very 
ftiiutly indicHI«d in some gpeclmena. length 11-12 mm. ; nidlh 2.3a- 3,6 mm. 

New Mexico, Snnia F6 (Fenyes), and Las Vegas (C()ckerell). 

As compared with Jog»atnr, modestus is a distinctly smaller and 
more slender species, the sculpture a little finer, median smooth line 
of pronotum almost completely wanting, sides of prothorax more 
nearly straight and not at all convergent in front (usuallv more or 
less obviously so in fotaatorj, elytra entirely without violaceous tint 
or apical spots. From ciniiamopterus, modestm differs in its finer, 
much denser punctuation of the prothorax, as well as in color. 
Tonenloitis is also nearly allied, but in this the color is perfectly 
black throughout, the pubescence blacker, and the velvety spots on 
the upper surface of the abdomen are conspicuous. 

EV^^lSTHETUS Orav. 
The discovery of a species of this genus at Las Vegas by Prof, 
Cockerell is notable as being the first instance of its occurrence in 
the Rocky Mountain region. The species are all minute, difficult 
to separate, because of the lack of salient characters, and are poorly 
represented in the majority nf collections. The species described 
below is one of the largest in the genus, being equaled in size only 
by punctulatus according to Casey's measurement^', and there can be 
little doubt that it is quite distinct from any of the eastern species. 

K. neotUAKlcianMK n. sp,— Form rather robust, color nniformly nifocanta-

tures barely visible in the autnral rrgion. Abdomen finely aintaceous and dull, 
eioesaively miDuteiy puuctnlate. Length 1.5-1,6 mm. 

Described from one pair ( <? , 9 ) taken at Las Vegas id February. 

Following the charact€r8 used iu Casey's table, neotnexicanva 
would stand with similiB and mutidultts, both of which are smaller 
and more aleuder. In nmilis the sides "f the elytra are strongly 
divergent, the border of the fifth ventral is said to be strong and 
the metasternuro is concolorous with the remainder of the lower 
surface. In mund-uhis the lateral imrder of both the fourth and 
fifth segments is nearly obsolete. Both similis and mundiilus occur 
in the extreme eastern part of the country. 

Helcrothopti mrdlOrrU n. sp.— Testaceous, he»d darker. Head nar- 
row; eyes moderate, distance Trom their posterior margin to the nuchal constrie- 
tion less than twice their length ; setlgeroua punctures of the sides o( the head

Aniennie nearly as in ocddentU, the third Joint about two-thirds as long as the

wise nearly as lu ixrufenlu. Length 2 mm. 

Described from three closely similar examples — 2 I 's, 1 9 — 
taken by Barber and Schwarz at Las Vegas Hot Springs, and by 
the writer at Riverside, California. 

This species is intermediate between ^iwto and occidetUu. As 
compared with pusio it is a little sniuller and evidently le^is stout, 
quite difl^erent in color, with smaller eyes, and with no setigerous 
puncture at the jmstero-supeHor margin of the latter. As compared 
with occidendu the form is a trifle less slender, the color is similar 
except for the darker head of the present species, and the eyes are 
much larger, these lieing abnormally small in occidentin. The last 
ventral of the male is deeply triangularly eniarginate, the notch 
nearly as deep as wide, the sides nearly straight, and with well 
defined outer angles.

by about their own dUniotrre. Prothomi slightly narrower than the bead, 
obriaualy transyerse, sides straight and mmlentely coQvergeut behind ; scalp- 
tDre similar to that of the bend, except that the panctureaare somewhat finer; 
median line narrowly amaolh and vrry finely sabobsoletely aulcale. Elytra sub- 
equal in width to the head, evidently longer than wide, surface srarcely at all 
alutaceons, the punctures flner and Ins cloie than on the pronotum. Abdomen 
very finely but not closely punctate. Length 6 mm. ; width 1.4 mm. 

Described from a single pair taken at Cloudcroft by Mr. Knaus. 
The male type has the sixth ventral broadly feebly ennargiiiate. 
This species must be closely related to arizonerue Csy., to which I 
refer a specimen taken by Townsend in the White Mountains (New 
Mexico). This latter is larger, with head and prothorax blackish 
like the abdomen, and the third antenna! joint is fully twice as long 
as the second and distinctly constricted at middle. In pidventre 
the third joint is distinctly less than twice as long as the second and 
nut at all constricted. 

Slllicn* «blitu« n. Bp.—Piceoue, the extreme apical margin of the elytra 
obscurely paler; legs and antennte rufoteataceous. ilead dull, the punctures 
dense, rather coarse, and more or less longitndlnally confiaent; beuealh coanely 
densely punctate; aides parallel for a abort diatauve behind the eyea, then broadly 
rounded ; base truncate; labral teeth very lung and acute, rrolhorai, aa defined 
by (he angles, anbqnadrate, (be sides just visibly converging posteriorly; surface 
densely CO a fluently punctate, median line finely canaliculate. Elytra just visibly 
longer than the protboraz. equal in width to the head, the punctuation rather 
fine and not close, surface modetately ablning. Abdomen finely aparaely pnnc- 
tute and somewhat shining. Length 4 mm. 
Beulah, May 3 (Cookerell). 

The type is a male, having the fifth ventral segment unmodified, 
the sixth with a subtriangular emargination which is somewhat 
wider than deep, and narrowly rounded at apes. The species is 
related to rudis in sculpture, but has avery differently shaped head. 

PalantinuB mnpllpeiinl* a. tp. — Yellowish leetaceous, the abdomen 
alighlly darker. Size, sculpture and vestitnre throughout nearly as Id F. lata- 
eetu, from which and all previoUHiy riesrribed forma it diflers in its broader and 
longer elytra ; these beiog oue-half wider tban the protborax and about twice as 

Peci>9. Collected by Prof. Cockerell. 

The type is doubtless a female, and has the terminal ventral seg- 
ment completely devoid of any trace of an emargination. Jt should 
slaixl near ttormalis, which of all our species approaches it most 
nearly in size of elytra.

Described from a single male taken by Prof. Cockerell at an alti- 
tude of 11,000 ft. Id the Las Vegas Range. 

There are no apparent eexual modifications of the leg?, but the 
first ventral bears at the middle two longitudinal |)arallel lines of 
erect hairs, a character which will at once distinguish the present 
species from any other in our fauna ; the truncation of the elytra is 
also mure pronounced than in any other species known to me. AUi- 
cola may follow ovata in Horn's table. 

MONOTOMID^. 

Enropa strlatnlas d. sp.— Forni of longieoUit but Emaller aud somewhat

A single example, collected by Mr. Knaus at Cloudcroft, is all 
that is known to me of this quite distinct species. It may be at 
once known from either of our two previously described species by 
its email size and finely striate elytra. In neither pa/ftpenms nor 
iongieotlis are the elytra truly striate, the rows of punctures merely 
occupying at most very feebly defined grooves. 

Since writing the above, other examples have been seen, collected 
by Barber and Schwarz at Las Vegas Hot Springs. Some of these 
specimens are larger than the above measurement.

This species should come t)etween aeiintinatiu and oblongua \a 
Wickbam's table. It is larger and relatively wider than oblongut, 
and diflers from acuminalui in not being at all acuminate posteriorly 
and in its finer punctuation. The ventral punctures in acuminatut 
are conspicuously coarser and less numerous, there being only two 
or three punctures in the length of a segment, while in subetipreiu 
there are about six.

Of the described species this is apparently nearest to eorputetihu 
Lee. The latter from the description is of stouter build, greenish- 
black, the prolhorax scarcely punctate and feehiy channeled, tlie 
aDtennte blackish at tip, legs testaceous. All other species allied to 
the present one have the elytra maculate, except divergent, which is 
distinctly differcDt by its more parallel form and greenish. black color. 

The macuiatioQ of the elytra is probably not entirely constant, at

Southern Califitriiia— San Bernnrdino Mts. and elsewhere in the 
8outherij Sierras and adjacent foothills. 

The above descriptiou is drawn t'nrni the male, the leniale differ- 
ing in the usual way, viz. : the Eomewhat broader form, more con- 
vex prothorax, with sides more strunglv rounded, and the shorter 
antennse. 

Structurally nugalU is very close tn what I have interpreted as 
nigripilis Mots. The latter is entirely black or very nearly so, the 
form slightly stouter, the frontal impression more sharply defined 
and more obviously triangular iu outline, the prothorax with a very 
narrow, incomplete, smooth, median line, which is never at all indi- 
cated ill nugali*. NigripilU is a commiui sjiecies in the coast 
region from the vicinity of San Francisco to Oregon, and probably 
farther north. Specimens in my collection from Kaweah and Yose- 
mite are doubtfully I'eferred lo nugalu. These in their darker color 
and form approach nigripilU. Others from Sylvania are equally 
]mzzling, but are for the present placed with nigripilig. It is prob- 
able that one or two distinct but closely allied species are here 
involved, but their definition is not possible with the material at 
hand. 

Albonil rectleolli* d. sp. — Similar to tbe preceding, except in following 
particulars : antennte more slender, tbe fourth joint but slightly more than half 
aa wide as long, frontal impression deeper and more sharply deHned, distinctly 
triangular iu outline; protliorai narrower, the sides not iu the least arcuate at 
middle, straight or just visibly sinuate from the hind angles almost to the ante- 
rior margin ; pnncluHlien coarser and a little less close than in nufroIJt.

A second niule from an unrecorded locality has the pronotum 
minutely Ion ^(itudin ally elriguloee and with a fine median impressed

of the preceding.

Southern California (Pomona; Mt. Wilson ; Santa Monica). 

A small dull blackish species, not at all closely allied to any other 
known to me. In its less strongly projecting non rellexed frontal 
margin it diverges from the typical Alhoiu and approaches rather 
closely those species of CorymbUes (e. g. jociilui and bretoeri), in 
which, contrary to the prevailing form, the front has a free, acute, 
though narrow, margin above the labrum. The difficulty of draw- 
ing hard and fast lines between the genera Athous, Corymbitee and 
Hemierepidiua fAsaplie») is becoming more apparent with the dis- 
covery of new forms, aud as intimated by LeConte it may become 
necessary Co unite these into a single genus.

Southern Califurnift, SanlA Monica (Albright). 

This species resembles superficially certain species of Agrioles. 
The frontal mai^in is less produced thau in typical Athotit, but is 
well defined, and the lobe of the third tarsal joint is unua^ualty well 
developed ; these difierencea are of degree merely, and the generic 
reference seems unavoidable.

C)ou<lcroft (Knaus). 

Described from a amgle male specimen. With this I associate a 
female from the same locality, which differs from the male type in 
its broader more convex form, the antennie not passing the hind 
angles of the thoras. Jejuniu is evidently allied to the preceding 
species and tu timpUx, and also somewhat resembles oj^nia. In 
rufoUtlaceiu the punctuation of the head and prothorax is very 
obviously coarser and sparser; in nmplex the third antennal joint 
is nuich shorter than the fourth, and in affinig slightly shorter than 
the fourth ; the latter species is also of evidently stouter build if the 
examples so labeled In the LeCotite cabinet are authentic.

this is scarcely evideDt in my examples. In liUeipennu the lateral 
margin of the hind angles is represented by a very fine, short carina, 
the true margin taking the form of a short inferior aubniarginal 
raised line nearly as in Cardtophoms. This inferior line is appar- 
ently totally absent in ealifornicue. Only males are known tn me 
in this genus, the genitalia being virtually identical in the two 
species. 

C«brlo eompuHltas n. >p.— Dark bronn, abdomen iomewhat psisr, Irgi

narrow, nearly as in mandibvlarii. Length 13 mm. 

Santa F6 (Fenyes). 

This species agrees with bicotor in its only moderately prominent 
mandibles, with mandibtilarU in its narrow prosternal process, and 
with e»trialu» in its narrow feebly serrate auteiins. The prothorax 
is more strongly narrowed from the base and more sparsely finely 
punctured than in any of these species, and the disparity iu color 
between the upper and lower surfaces is less marked than usual.

New Mexico (Alamogordo). A single Bpecimen collected by 
Viereck. 

The type is Ja the collection of the American Eatoraolt^ical 
Society. It is evidently a 9 ; the fwnt tibin are arcuate but with- 
out tooth or apical dilation. The nun serrate last ventral throws 
this species into Horn's Group VII, none of the species uf which it 
resembles at all closely ; it may precede sexsignata. The clypeal 
margin is unlike in outline that of any species previously descril>ed 
but would be most like femoraia of those figured by Horn, if the 
sides of the latter were straight instead of arcuate.

The unique type is a female, and seems to approach most closely 
angelicue of the previously described forms. The claws are toothed 
in a fashion nearly intennediate between the two types referred to 
by Horn in his tabular statement, but I think the species is properly 
placed as here indicated. If it be referred to the larger group with

Tb« type ie a female, and has the fifth ventral broadly evenly 
arcuate at apex. With the type are associated a male from Soledad 
Canon (Ckll.). and a female from Fresnal Canon (Knaus), both of 
which are in not very good condition. In both of these the aatennn 
are distinctly stouter, the outer joints obviously transverse, and it is 
t)uite possible that the Fresnal Canon specimen at least represents a 
distinct species. 

Id the type there are a few darker hairs along the middle of each 
elytron, but they are not sufficiently pronounced to give the effect of 
a discal vitta. The species would seem to fall near iexaniu by 
Casey's table, the latter species being larger, blacker because of the 
sparser gray hairs, and more abundant black bristles, and with less 
slender antennte.

rather dense appresaed pale pubescence. Length 3)-l mm. 

Alaniogordo (Vlereck). 

In the male the fifth ventral is broadly truncate, the inner spur 
of the middle tibiie is very broad, and that of tbe front tibife dis- 
tinctly enlarged, and the erect hairs of the upper surface are more 
obvious. In the female the anteunie are shorter than in the male, 
but unusually long for the sex, extending a little beyond the elytral 
base; the fifth ventral is truncate, with the faintest possible indica- 
tion of a median angulation, the tibial spurs all slender. 

By Casey's table this species might perhaps best be placed before 
kirtellus, though conspicuously differing from that and neighboring 
species by the feebly developed longer hairs of the upper surface 
especially in tbe female.

Organ, New Mexico, 5100 ft., Sept. (Ck)l.). 

The type is a female, having the fifth ventral strongly, nearly 
evenly rounded at apex. The elongate pnithorax with all the 
angles broadly rounded la similar to that wliich Casey declares to be 
characteristic of the gronp of species for which he erects the genus 
Cradyles; the ungual appendages are, however, as long as the claws 
and attached to them throughout. There is no sign of serrulation 
of the prothoracic margin, though this may exist in the male. 

None of the characters given by Casey for the establishment of 
the genus Cradytee are either constant or distinctive and the species 
must therefore revert m Trichochorua. The present species should 
stand near these and perhaps closest to rufipennU.

a little more narrowed anteriorly, the antennse shorter, the sutural 
angles of the elytra more acute, and the fifth ventral broadly angn-

The type is a male, liaving the fifth ventral truncate, but the 
tibial spurs are but slightly modified, being slender and acute nn 
all the feet. 

The length of the prosternum is far greater than in any previ-

pale fascia ia here very broad, occupying the middle third or even 
more uf the elytra, aud not int«rrupt«d at suture. In abruplti* the 
median pale fascia is much narrower, always much more so than the 
length of the elytra either before or behind it, aud always interrup

head, prothorax and pale elytral area^ are of a rather bright coral-

Texas. 

Described from a single example sent me years ago as eramiltu. 
Further investigation siiows that this is the Texan form referred to 
under crasmlw in Horn's Synopsis. It is placed with the true 
eroMtiltu in the IieConte collection, but Mr. Blanchard on compari- 
son finds it distinct from the typical tbrm, which is kuown only 
from Florida, and is at once separated by its very robust body which 
is wider behind as in certain species of jfJgiaUa. 



This species is closely related to the preceding and to crass}iln», to 
which it would be traced by using the Horn tables. From abiutug 
it is separable as follows: form slightly less robust, evidently less 
convex in profile; clypeui angles rather less prominent; genre much 
less prominent; there is an ill defined but evident short transverse 
anterior ridge present in all specimens seen, do trace of which exists 
in abugw. Prothorax punctate throughout nearly as in rtirtcola, 
the punctures at middle, being about as in abusiis. but at sides 
plainly less dense than in the latter species. Elytral strite finer than 
in abvsu», the edges of the intervals more obviously crenulate by the 
punctures, the seventh interval but little narrower than the sixth 
or eighth at middle. Ungth 3.8-4.4 mm. ; width 1.75-2.1 mm.

angulate clypeus renders separation easy, while granarius, aside 
from the group characters, is at once distinguished by the broad

along the dry bed of the Rio Grande River at El Paso, Texas, in 
November, 1889. A single specimen has since been sent me by 
Mr. Wickham who took it at Albuquerque, New Mexico. 

This species should be placed near eijilanalut, the latter differing 
in its larger size, angulate clypens, more densely punctate thorax, 
and more strongly punctured elytral striie.

246 AMERICAN COLEOPTBEA, 

Described from a single specimen collected bj- Townsend and 
bearing label "So. Fork Eagle Creek, White Mts., 8000 ft." 

The type is a male, having the spur of anterior tibia slender and 
rather strongly evenly curved ; tbe shorter spur of the middle tibia 
with the extreme apex abruptly bent inward. Pltitonicus resembles 
quite closely pentoralw in the slightly dull elytra, but the latter 
belongs to a ditferent section by the equal tibial spinules. By 
Horn's table it would fall near terminalis, which is a smaller species, 
with non-tuberculate head and pale elytral apex. 

Aphodlns longltarsia n. ip.— Form ratber narrow, parallel, not very 
strongly eoniez ; lieiid and prathorai pIceoUB. Tront ani) sidesof bead and lides 
of tliorai paler; elytra pale ye) low isb -testaceous, withont mHrkinjn; ben»tb 
rufopiceous, legs teiCaceotiB. Head moderately convex, frontal tubercles evident, 
connected by a raised line ] surface in front of tbe raised line coaraely verriiooae 
and witb abort erect baiia; occiput coarsely punctate, somelimes rugose; clypeus 
i*ther deeply emarBipate. sides rounded. Prothorai moderately transveia*, a 
little narrowed in front, aides sparsely fimbriate, base evenly arcuate witb line 
marginal line, hind angles indislinct, sides moderately arcoate ; surface witb 
coarse punctures, wbich are nearly uniform in size hut somewhat irregular in 
distribution, rather sparse at middle, becoming moderately dense at sides. Elytra 
two-flfths longer tban wiile, a little wider than tbe thorai and two and two- 
third times as long, sides nearly parallel, bumeral angles narrowly rounded; 
strite mctderate, finely punctured, intervals sligblly conyei, eacb with a series 
of Hne sparsely placed punctures escb side, closely adjacent to the striK. Ueso- 
slernum opaqne, not carinate; metasternum and abdomen sparsely pnnelate. 
Femora with a few flue punctnr^. Anterior libice smooth in front, moderately 
strongly trldentate, spur slender, feebly carved and a little longer than the first 
tarsal Joint. Tarsi very slender and elongate, basal Joint of bind tarsus eqnal to 
the ueit two ; long spur of both middle and hind tibiffi evidently shorter tban 
the Brst tarsal joint. Lengtb 31-4 mm. 

El Paso, Texas; Aweme, Manitoba (C. H. Howe). 

The Kl Paso examples are to be regarded as types. The Mani- 
toba specimens are slightly larger, the thorax a trifle wider, the 
elytral strife more strongly punctured. The dilferences are, I think, 
of little moment, the wider thorax perhaps indicating the male. 
The spinules of the middle and hind tibise are very unequal, the 
longer and shorter alternating with considerable regularity. This 
species seems most closely related to scabricepg, with which indeed 
it has been confused by LeCoute, a single specimen being so placed 
in the collection. The very long tarsi with relatively shorler basal 
joint will at once enable it to be separated.

This peculiar and interesting little species should evidently be 
placeil near humeralU, which exhibits the same peculiarity in the

The type ia apparently a male and was taken at " Meailla, July 
31. at light" hy Prof. Cockerell. With it I sBsociate a smaller 
8pecimeu from Yuma, Arizona, collected by Dr. Fenyes. No sexual 
marks are evident. In the structure of the mentuni this species is 
approached hy pedoralis only, but in the latter the wedge is much 
thicker at base than in gnatko, and its anterior face is concave from 
side to side, while in the present species the concavity is front top to 
bnttoni. In peetorali», moreover, the prosternuiu is lobed in front, 
and the basal joint of hind tarsus stningly modifie<l. The mandi- 
bles in gnatko are even more strongly produced than in mandibu- 
laru, but are less strongly angulate externally. In the extremely 
broad head it is approached by no other species at present known.

and tani nearly aa in biarmatat. Length 5) mm.; width 2i mm. 
" Mesilla, July 31, at light " (Cockerell). 

By its flat, strongly transverse nientum the present species must 
be associated with etriatm and sparsus. In etriatwi there is no 
frontal tubercle, and the vertex is transversely carinate, the color 
darker and the elytral striee deeper. In rpareiis the frontal tuliercle 
is much more pi)Sterior in pi)siiion, being on the vertex instead of 
adjacent to clypeul margin ; the angles of the labrum are more pro- 
longed and the prothorax is £horl«r. 

DK^HKLONVCHA. 

The two following forms are closely related to baekii and fnlgida 
respectively, but differ so constantly in color through long series 
that distinctive names are desirable, even though they ultimately 
prove lo he merely subspecies.

FALL AMD COCKKRELL. 249 

Taken abundantly at Cloudcroft in the Sacramento Mouotaine of 
New Mexico by Mr. Knaus, to whom I am iudebted for a good 
seriea. Mr. Kaaiis writes thus coDcerning it: "This species I took 
on the summit (9200 feet) on scrub oak leaves aud balsam pine, also 
at Wooten's Station, six miles below Cloudcroft at 7000 feet oil 
willow and wild rose, but not nearly so frequent as at the summit of 
the mountains." 



This name is suggested for the Utah form alluded to under /tiZ- 
gida and crolchii in my " Notes on I^chelonycha " (Trans. Am. Ent. 
Soc., 1901, p. 285). A good series has lately been received from 
Mr. Knaus, who took thero at Stockton, Utah. The females appear 
to be invariably colored like the males, while iu both fulgida, and 
erotehii the females have the head, thorax, body beneath and legs 
quite as uniformly testaceous or rufoua. The eiytral punctuation is 
intermediate in character between futgida and crolchii.

Described from a single female specimen taken by the writer at

This species should stand in the firal division of the genus, but may 
be distiiiguiahed from any knowa to me by the conical rather than 
cuiupatiulate thorax, the hiud angles but slightly produced. Add 
to this the elytral costse, the very fine punctuation, and the blackish 
pubescence of tlie prothorax, which is not larger than that of the 
elytra, and we have a combination of characters which should make 
its recognition easy.

Smaller and slightly stouter than pundalas, with which it agrees

noticeably coarser and denser on the abdomen; antennal club not 
darker, prothorax a trifle more transverse, aides a little more 
rounded; metaat«rnum between the coxn but slightly longer than 
the diamet«r of the middle coxal cavity, subequal to the post coxal 
length of the first ventral segment and shorter than the second aeg- 
ment. In punetatua the erect hairs of the upper surface are shorter 
and very sparse, being nearly confined to the marginal portions of 
the thorax and elytra; the intercoxal length of the metasternum ia 
nearly twice the diameter of the middle coxal cavity and much 
longer than any of the ventral segments. In erinitus tiie metaster- 
num is almost as short as in fuseu», which species ia, however, very 
distinct by its subinflated elytra, more rounded sides of the prothorax 
and absence of erect hairs on the upper surface. Aa indicated by 
the very short metasternum the wings are rudimentary in futetu and 
it is probable that they are so, though perhaps in less degree, in 
erinitus. In all the species of this genus, of which males are known

Nearly allied to scufellaris, but narrower and more strongly 
attenuate posteriorly, and of quite a different aspect because of the 
much paler pulwscence. The antennal and palpal structure is nearly 
as in sculellaris. The sexea differ only very slightly, the eyes being 
a trifle larger in the male, the antennse scarcely stouter or more ser>

Of the fourteen species of this genus recorded in the preceding 
list I have not personally seen the following from the territory : 
atperm, inomala, impatie}is, ang-uata and ismula. With the possible 
exception of impatiens and angusta I have no reason to doubt the 
correctness of the references. Both impatient and angv,sla possess 
characters which should make them easily recognizable, and neither 
could by any possibility, I think, be identical with any of the other 
species of the present list. The genus might profitably be revised, 
and when so done, special search should be made for other charac- 
ters he.'ildes the so called tibial and tarsal ridges, which though of 
very great value, must at times be used with caution. It is certain 
that the palpi and antennse offer characters which can he used to 
advantage.

Specimens takeD by Mr. Schwarz at Deming and identified as lotta, 
are probably the present species, and are so given in the preceding 
list. Two other forms in my collection are superficially scarcely dis- 
tinguishable from pallens. One of these, from Onaga, Kansas, 
agrees fairly well with notes taken upon the type of ((w(a and is so 
labeled. Another form, collected at^ Tyngsboro, Mass., by Mr. 
Blanchard, by whom it was labeled tosia, seems surely distinct by 
the following brief characterization :

New Mesico (Gallup, Highrolls. Elba): California (Pomona). 

An apparently common species in the southwest, specimens of

A specimen taken at Pecos by Prof. Cuckerell seems lo fit Le 
Conte's descriptioD, differing from ihe eastern marginalia by its 
more abundant pater yellowish pubescence as indicated by LeConte. 
I find also that the auteunfe are much i^touter than in mar'jinalig, 
the outer jiiinta being but little longer than wide, while in margina- 
lis — as represented by examples from Ohio — they are nearly or quite. 
twice as long as wide. If the Pecos specimen is really diviga, as 
seems very probable, the validity of the species is uuqueiitioual>le.

With the typical form ] have placed a series collected at Pecoe 
by Prof. Cockerell, and others from Williams, Arizona, taken by 
myself, these differing only in the tibiee and tarsi being scarcely at 
nil rufescent, and the eutural line of denser pubescence very faintly

This species is evidently a near ally of pedalt* from Lower Cali-

Alamogorda (Viereck) ; Florence, Arizona (Skinner). 

Of this species females only have l>een seen. By Le Conte's table 
(Trans. Am. Ent. Soc., 1880, p. 210) popenoi, femifiamig and fcaber 
are said to have the abdonieti in the female yellow, while in all the 
remaining species it is black in both sexes. In this respect the 
present species occupies an intermediate position, the prevailing coh)r 
being yellow, hut with about as much black as yellow in some s[ieci' 
mens. From popenoi, vierecki may be further separated by the much 
less stout basal joint uf the hind tarsus, while the smooth thorax and 
less densely punctured head will separate it from scaber. I have 
compared with type of semiflavus (de.^cribed from Maryland) aud 
found them quite distinct, but neglected to make note of differences. 

SoHdttffinis Pierce agrees well in size, in tarsal formation and 
general aspect, but differs by the black legs and uniformly punc- 
tured thorax. In both soHdaginis and scaber the antent»al pectina- 
tions are of nearly uniform length from base to apex, and very much 
shorter than in vierecki., in which the basal ramus is'fully twice as 
long as the apical and about three- fourths as long as the width of 
the front between the eyes. This character will I believe separate 
the present species from many, and perhaps all of our' previously 
described forma.

Santa F€ (Fenyes), oue example. The maciilatJun of this species 
is mure distinct and symmetrical than usual in this genus, and is as 
follows : head with a median vertical vitta of dark brown ; a wider 
stripe of the same color through the eye, continued in a sharply 
dedned prothoracic vitta; middle third of the prothorax cinereous, 
sides beyond the brown vitta cinereous, flanks with an ochreous. 
ttripe. Interspaces 1-3-5, etc., ochreous ; 2-4-6, etc., cinereous, 
each with a double row of elongate dark brown spots. The tarsal 
structui-e of this species is so different from that of any of our other 
Oph,ryagt''» as to perhaps exclude it from this genus; as remarked 
by Horn, however, there is some variation iu this resjjecl among our 
older species. Other characters separating nymmelricm from previ- 
ously described species are : the median rostral carina, more abund- 
ant and more erect setse, lack of lateral thoracic tuberosities and 
slightly arcuate Hrst ventral suture. 

The e.-^tablishment of Eupagoderes by Horn for certain species 
previously referred to Ophryojiles has not proved satisfactory, all 
the characters named being gradatioiial. The most conspicuous of 
these, taking the species as a whole, is the presence of lateral callosi-

tics of the prothorax in Opkryasles, but as pointed out by Dr. 
Sharp in the "Biologia" this cannot be properly regarded as a 
generic character. The latter author Is, however, equally at fault 
in stating that the two genera may be separated by the presence 
(Eupagoderes) or the absence {Ophryattes) of adhesive pubescence 
on the lobes of the third tarsal joints, this character being a purely 
sexual one in at least a considerable number of species of both 
genera and possibly in all.

fourths as long as the second. With the male type I have associ- 
ated two female specimens taken by Prof. Cockerell at Beulah and 
Pecos, which differ in their wider more oval elytra, being in fact 
closely similar in form to grisea. In these tbe terminal dorsal and 
ventral segments are rather narrowly rounded at apex, the latier 
with a much smaller apical impression; the third funicular joint 
but little more than half the length of the second. The present

The reference to Cimbocera is provisional, though aside from the 
distinct separation of the seventh funicular Joint from the cluh, and 
the evidently mucronate middle tibiie, the characters seem to agree

The type, and only specimen seen by me, woa takeu at Cloudcroft

coDstrictions, short robust beak and longer first funicular joint, are 
the principal distinguishing characters of this species.

slightly divergent posteriorly in the male, more distinctly so in the female; disk 
broadly variegated with dark and pale brown, the former predominating, this 
darker area entered by an oblique median pale fascia which does not reach tbe 
suture; sides and apei paler; inUrspaces alternately more convex, becoming 
quite prominently so at the summit of the apical declivity. Legs and lower sur- 
face m» usual. Length S.3-4 mm. 

Florida (Key Largo). 

Several examples collected by Mr. Beyer. 

This species agrees with dnermts in its smalt size and narrow sub- 
cylindrical thorax, but differs from it and all our other species iu its 
alternately oostifbrm elytral intervals, in the prevailing brown color 
of the scales, and in the paler central dorsal vitta of the pronotuai, 
this being darker than the lateral region in all others. 

Our five sjiecies may be tabulated as follows :

Thia species would fall near aem/.u* in Le Conte's labie, but 
difiers from that in its strongly evenly arcuate sides of the prothorax 
and lack of squamiform pubescence at the sides of the body beneath. 
The median rostral groove is also much narrower and deeper in

plainly exposed. This species resembles the paler forms of nxtbifer 
in a general way, but is a little larger, with broader thorax, the 
elytral humeri consequently less widely ex]io9ed, the legs thicker, 
the beak shorter ; the pygidial groove does not attain the apex as it

FALL AND COCEERELL. ^09 

A brief examioatioD shows that our species of Acailes are divisi- 
ble ioto two sections, in one of which the eyes are widely separated 
aud entirely lateral, while in the other they encroach upon the front, 
their distance apart being less than the width of the beak. More or 
less completely correlated with this difference in ocular structure, is 
the development of the erect bristles ; these being entirely or virtu- 
ally absent in the species with more approximate eyes, and nearly 
as constantly present in those species having the eyes smaller and 
widely separated. Hubbardi is a notable exception in the latter 
group.

A PRELIMINARY LIST OF THE AHILID^ OF 

NEBRASKA, WITH DESCRIPTION 

OF NEW SPECIES. 

BY PAUL R. JONES, UKIVEKSITY OF NEBRASKA. 

Most of the material upon which this paper ta based was collected 
in the Dorlhwesteru part of the State during the past two jears. 
Although there are a good many forms represented in this paper 
the number is low in comparison with what might be secured by 
more careful collecting- The entire State seems to be esiwcially 
adapted to a lai^ development of the family AsilidBe, The Dasy- 
pogoninie and Aailinie are the best represented, although many rare 
Laphrinfe have been found. The present paper may contain some 
errors, but the author haa takeu pains to insure the correct determi- 
nations ill all cases. Many of the species, which are undoubtedly 
new, have been left unnamed for lack of sufficient material. I wish 
here to thank Dr. Williston, to whom I am greatly indebted for 
certain determinations and valuable suggestions with reference to 
generic and other relations. 

1. LEPTOGASTER Meigeu.

Specimens from Glen, Sioux Co., Springview Bridge, Brown Co., 
West Point and Lincoln, Nebraska. Tlie specimens vary from 
light colored specimens with a yellow abdomen to dark colored 
specimens with a brownish-black abdomen. The first posterior cell 
is nearly closed in some specimens, while in others it is wide open. 
The antenuffl are not typical for the genus Stenopogon, tbe third 
joint being about the length of the first two together, and the arista 
more than one-half the length of the third joint. The hypopleura 
do not have a patch of bristles, which Mr. Coquillett thinks is a 
better character for separating Stenopogon from Scleropogon than 
the length of the style.

Ten females from Lincoln, Nebraska, June and July, and War

having the first posterior cell slightly narrowed, through one closed 
in one wing and nearly closed in the other to both closed. They

vary in the color of the 1^ from nearly-entire reddish yellow to 
3pe<^meDa in which only the extreme hase of the femora and apex 
of the tibi» are reddish. The second joint of the antennee is about 
two-thirds as long aa the first joint, third joint broad, style composed 
of two joints, second joint about two and one- half times as long as 
the first and hollowed out on the upper outer side, and in the center 
of this depression there is a microscopic bristle. Front, face, thorax 
and pleura covered with grayish pollen, that of the face slightly 
yellowish. Pile everywhere light colored. Abdomen shining, 
handed posteriorly with pollinose cross-bands which are nearly 
interrupted iu the middle, but wide on the lateral margins. 
Lmphf alia sji. 

Two males and a fernale from Sioux Co. aud a male from Halsey, 
Nebraska, which appear to differ from the above species, but cannot 
be separated by any good characters. They are smaller, more slen- 
der, the head appears wider on account of the more slender abdo- 
men, abdomen more shining metallic, the cross bands more silvery. 
In the female specimen from Sioux Co. the face is yellow pollinose, 
while it is silvery in the one from Halsey, the other specimens show 
variations in between. The structure of the antennce is the same as 
in the preceding species. A male and a female from Lincoln, 
Nebraska, and Clie sand hills seem to be intermediate between the 
two species. 

Dr. WillistoD has kindly referred these specimens to the genera 
Laphyslia and TriclU.

similar to that of fig. 6a of the head, but the upper part and an- 
tennal prominence are barely visible when viewed from profile. The 
third joint of the anteunse is not as broad as that of T. tagax. I 
will place this species in this genus, although I think the genus 
Truilit should not stand unless separated from LopAyofta by some 
other character than the closed posterior cell, which I found so 
variable in the preceding species.

This species can be readily distinguished from L. arenicola 0. S. 
in being more densely pollinose and not so densely pilose as that

Type— Ooe feraale from Meadow, Nebraska, July, 1906 (P. R.

This species can be separuted from C. macrocera by having darker 
wings and diflferently colored pile on the abdomen ; from C. nigra 
and C. dubia by having darker wings, lighter halteres and difier- 
entiy ciihired pile on legs : from C. nigripennis by the difference in 
the color of the wings, differently colored pile near the ocelli, differ- 
ently colored pollen on the face, shorter pile on the thorax, and by 
the abdomen having the fifth and gisth segmenta clothed as the

nien lacks the silvery pile, but is covered with yeilowish-gray pollen 
and marked like the female of E. cinerascena. Palpi in both sexes 
are black, with yellow or yellowish white pile. The females are 
difficult to separate from the females of i.". cmeraaceits when com- 
paring individual specimens, but when examining a series the s[ieci- 
mens of E. chiercuicens appear much whiter or grayish, while those 
of E. sUtmiueue appear more yellowish. They can be separated by 
the difference in the color of the pile on the palpi ; in E. dnerascrns 
it is black, and in E.gtamineua yellow or white. Formerly recorded 
from two males from Montana.

WM, G, DIETZ, M.D, 



BY WM. Q. DIETZ, 

(Plate IV.) 



A well defined genus of the Micro- lepidopteroua family Tineidse, 
characterized as follows : head rough-haired, more or less appressed 
on the face, two large tafta od the vertex, directed more or less for- 
ward. Antenna as long as the forewings, simple, basal joint with- 
out pecten. Labial palpi moderately ioog, smooth scaled, curved 
and more or leas asceDdiug; third joint pointed, shorter than the 
second. Maxillary palpi distinct, porrect and of moderate length. 
Forewings elongate- 1 an ceo! ate ; rein lb not furcate at base, 11 veins, 
3 abxent, 6 and 7 usually stalked, latter to costa. Hindwings nar- 
rower tlian the forewings, narrowly lanceolate, cilia 2-3; vein 3 
sometimes absent, cell open between 4 and 5, 5 and ti sometimes 
stalked. 

Of the species heretofore enumerated in our lisU, but few are 
definitely recognized ; this is due in part to faulty descriptiim, which 
leaves the identity of a species in serious doubt, and again to the 
fact thitt several of Clemens' species were described from captured 
specimens, their food-plant being unknown, and the type, eitlier lost 
or in such a condition as to make identification impossible. Ornix 
acerifoliella does not belong here, but is the type of Paraclenientia 
Busck. O. quereifoliella Ch. belongs to Qradlaria — Dialectiea 
Wish. — and is a synonym of Gracilaria strigifinUella. 

Thus far I have seen no representatives of the genua from the 
Pacific Slope. The species appear to prefer the temperate and 
more northern regions. If those who are Interested in the further- 
ance of our knowledge of the Micro -lepidoptera of our fauna will 
give more close attention to the breeding of material, I have no 
doubt that many more species will be discovei'ed than are here 
enumerated, and almost all of which were bred from the imtnediate 
vicinity of the writer. 

The species arrange themselves into two natural groups. The 
first of these is characterized by the forewiug being of a dark golden

or purple browo color, with ail very-white or yellowish, shining, 
marginal spots. The second group has the forewing graytsh-fuacous 
to brown or dark brown, with numerims oblique costal atrite, raostly 
white, rarely yellowish and without any metallic lustre. The epe- 
cies comprising this group resemble each other very much, are 
closely related and difficult to distinguish. The principal charac- 
ters to be relied upon are the markings of the labial palpi, colora- 
tion of the head, the dark ciliary lines, the plical spots and last but 
not least, the food plant. 

The following characters are common to all of the last group: 
Maxillary palpi white, sometimes slightly dusted with fuscous ex- 
ternally. Antennie fuscous or brown above, indistinctly annulate 
with and beneath paler. Costal strise rarely definite in numlwr, 
generally ill defined, obscure and directed obliquely backward in 
basal half of wing, the outer stria distinct, more or less perpendicu- 
lar to the coatal mai^in, the last stria as a rule forms a curved line 
extending through both the costal and dorsal cilia; immediately 
behind this line and in the apex of the wing Is a dark blackish 
spot. Generally speaking the interatrial spaces are darker than the 
color of the wing. In the fold are two spots or patches— plical 
spots— rarely absent ; the first of these is at one-fourth, the second 
about the middle, these spots vary in size and form, but appear to 
be fairly constant for each species. That part of the wing below 
the fold — subplical space — is in almost all the species, more or less 
mixed with white; basal part generally white. In the cilia,<com- 
mencing about what would correspond to the tornus, are three darker 
lines, the first about the middle, the second nearer and the third on 
the free ciliary margin ; this last line either extends entirely around 
the apex, or it coalesces below the apex of the wing, with the second 
line, and in this case the cilia are white on their free margin around 
the apex; generally there is a short fragmentary line below the 
apex and between the first and second line. Anterior and middle 
legs dark blackish-fuscous; femora spotted with white; end of tihire 
white; tarsi white, joints fuscous at apex ; hind legs whitish, tarsal 
joints darker at the apex. Anal bush in the male generally a sordid 
yellow. 

Generally the larva at first forms a neplicula like tract, which 
widens into a blotch-mine. When full grown it leaves the mine and 
forms a cocoon under the turned over edge of the leaf. According

WH. O. DIBTZ, H.D. 20V 

to Chambers 0. imuitatianella Ch. proves an exception to this rule, 
as the larva pupates in the mine. The pupal case is projected from 
the cocoon during the emergence of the imago. The latter in repose, 
like Oraoilarui, Corisdum, sits with the anterior part of the body 
elevated. 

Only two of the European species occur in North America — 0. 
gvttea and anglvxlla. Of other European species, of which authen- 
tic specimens had l)een placed at my disposal by the Natioual Museum, 
none correspond with species herein described.

Tlie above is Dr. Clemens' description of this species. Type in 
tlie Academy of Natural Sciences, Philadelphia. In poor condition 
when ilescrihed. Head, abdomen and wings of one side wanting. 
Although the head is wanting and the neumtion of the wing differs 
somewhat from the normal form, according to Clemens, I neverthe- 
less believe it to be a true Ornix. There should be no difficulty to 
identify the species if found.

This rather common European species occurs in our fauna. Two 
specimens in my collection, collected by and received from Mr. 
Albert Shaw, Hampton, N. H„ entirely correspond with an authen- 
tic Sjjecimen of this species in the National Museum collection. 
In the specimens before me the last costal spot is very small, con- 
fined to the cilia and might readily be overlooked. The larva, 
according to Meyriok,is yellowish, dorsal line dark green or reddish. 
Head dark brown. It lives in folded leaves of apple.

Hab. — Penna. (Hszleton). 

The single Bpecimen which serves as type of thie species, was bred 
by the writer from thorn (^Cfratagiu) in 1899. The fine, yet very 
distinct and nearly alilie costal stHas are not seen in any other spe- 
ciea known to me. Unfortunately the cilia are defective and I can- 
not discern whether they are tipped with dark fuscous or not, 
around the apex. It is therefore placed here tentatively, as it 
resembles more the two preceding species than any others.

Hab. — Europe ; New England States. 

I cite this species here on the authority of Lord Walsingham.* 
A well authenticated European specimen of this species is before 
Fne, but have not seen one from within our own faunat lipnits. 

The third ciliary line, although complete, extends to but not 
around the apex, thus distinguishing it from any others of our 
North American species. The larva lives on OraUcguB (hawthorn), 
also occasionally, according to Meyrick, on Fragaria (strawberry). 

O, prnnlvorellH Cb,— Palpi white, third joint with a wide, dark fuscous

especially in basal half with grayish-purple; cosul strin rather obscure, more 
diBtinct on the cosla. the outer four or five atrlee exlendioic nearly to the dursal

Two specimens in my collection, received a number of years ago 
from Miss Murtfeldt, agree with specimens bred by the writer from 
wild cherry, and have the dorsal patch of semi-erect scales, espe- 
cially well developed; they do not, however, agree wilh any iipeci-

with a specimen in the National Museum collection, bearing the 
label "0. prunivorella Ch. geminaUlla Pack, bred from apple." 
The authenticity of this specimen is in doubt. I have not seen the 
type of geminaiella. To judge by the description it is the same as 
prunivarella Ch. Nevertheless, I have serious doubts on this point, 
and while positive as to the identity of prunivorella, feel compelled 
to assign geminatella as a doubtful synonym of the former.

I entertain not the least doubt that this is the species of which 
Dr. Clemens described the larva and food-plant only. The former 
is pale yellowish, head and first segment each with a transverse row 
of ■black dots, I have bred specimens from Pyrus arbutifolia 
(choke berry), which is closely allied to and generally mistaken fur 
Amelinchier canadensis. I have also bred it from apple. A speci- 
men from the National Museum collection and referred to under A. 
pranivarellcL belongs here. 

A specimen received from the National Museum collection, bred 
from quince (^Cydania vulgaris), while scarcely distinguishable from 
the species under consideration, I feel restrained to consider at least 
as a variety, which eventually may prove to be specific. 

Var. alblfkdella. 

Differs from typical specimens by the grayish-white head, face 
silvery white, tufts light yellowish fuscous. The larva also, accord- 
ing to a note ou the label, differs " Larva differs from that ou wild 
cherry, no black spots on thorax or head." This latter observation 
alone, if correct, would prove it a genuine species.

BY LBONARD HA8EHEN, COLUMBIA, UISSOITRI. 

(Pr*e«medaaaTheeisia Zoology forlbt Degree of Master of Arts, Indiana titilverslly.) 

(PUKK V-VIII.) 

Id prepariug this paper the writer has attempted to give as accu- 
rate and as complete bd account of our present knowledge of the 
mature and immature stages of the North American members of 
this family as possible. He has met with some little disappoint- 
ment, however, in being unable to get specimens of several of the 
named species. It has been impossible for him to leave his work 
and visit the various collections, and the fragility of the flies has 
caused some little hesitancy in the loaning of specimens. For the 
species which he has unfortunately not been able to examine the 
original description of the type has been used whenever possible. 
Any minor detail errors that may be present in these type descrip- 
tions or errors in the generical location of these species are largely 
beyond his control. It does not seem at all probable, however, that 
there has not been more than a single species of Pericoma taken Id 
the East, and as Kincaid ooce suggested, it is quite likely that some 
of these Psychodie are really PericomsB, but from the type descrip- 
tion the writer is unable to say definitely. A species from Cuba by 
Williston and one from Guatemala by Coquillett, together with ten 
new species, have been included. Notes on Professor Kellogg's - 
aquatic larvK and pupie and the life history of a new species from 
Florida have also been given. 

The Psychodidte have been very appropriately called "moth 
flies" from the resemblance which they bear to tiny moths. In 
most species the wings are broad and held roof-like in repose, which, 
together with the hairy vestiture of the body and wings, gives the 
flies the moth-like appearance. They are very small, the wings of 
the largest not exceeding about 4 mm. in length, so that they are 
^Idom taken, except by careful collectors. They shun the sunshine 
and are most readily found upon shaded windows, upon the trunks

of trees, aod in the overhanging foliage of trees and shrubs, border- 
ing streams. They are very readily attracted to lights, and the 
writer finds this to be the most successful way of collecting them. 

The venation of the wings probably represents the most general- 
ized type in the Diptera, although there is good reason perhaps for 
placing the Tupulidie at the foot of the scale. The immature stages 
of the PsychodidsB bear several points in common with Tipulidte and 
Culicidte; while the adults of the geuus Fkbolomvx have the blod- 
sucking habit of the mosquitoes, 

Escepting P^choda altemaia Say, which was first described in 
1824, and Peyehoda degenera Walker,* the type descriptions of 
which the writer has not seen, the work of collecting and dei^cribing 
the North American Psychodids was not taken up until the early 
90's. A number of the European Psychodids were described during 
the earlier part of the last century ; some of the bibliography cited 
by Eaton dating back to 1804, while the genus Ptyekoda dates 
back to 1796, when it was erected by Latreille.f 

The European Psychodidfe have been grouped in two rather dis- 
tinct dividoDs; the subfamily PblebotominEe and the three genera 
Pericoma, Peychoda and Vtomt/ia. Pour genera are included in the 
subfamily Phlebotominte, classed in two series. 

The first series includes the two genera Nemiypalpus Macquart 
and Phiebotomu^ Rondani. The antennae are 16-jointed. The pro- 
boscis is prolonged and the palpi are elongate, with a flexible t«rtiii- 
nal joint. The radial sector is 3-brauched, and the third anal vein 
in PhlebotoTMis is wanting or hardly distinguishable from the anal 
furrow; while in Nemopalp\i» it is short and descends to the margin 
of the wing not far from the anal cross-vein. 

The second series includes the two genera Sycorax and Trichomyia 
Ualiday, in which the antennte are IS-joinied. The proboscis is 
not prolonged and the palpi are short, rather stout, with a firm ter- 
minal joint. The radial sector is reduced to a single forked vein. 
The third aual vein is short in Sycorax as in Nfnnopalpvs, but in 
Trichomyia it is long. In Syeorax minute, rounded prominences, 
hardly distinguishable, replace the ovipositor and subgenilal plate; 
while in Trichomyia the valves are short, broad, suboval, lamiute, 
and the plate minute, subtriangular and subobtuse.

LEONARD HA8EUAN. 301 

The three genera, Perieoma,, Pet/choda and Ulomyia, all have 4' 
jointed palpi; 3-branched radial sector, forked cubitus; three anal 
veins and with a maximum number of sixteen joints in the antennse. 
Some of the American species have Heventeen joints. 

Ulomyia is distinguished fnim Perieoma and Ptyckoda bv tlie 
wings having a median upwardly bellowing sinus in the mules. 
Perieoma and Ptyehoda are not so sharply defined. Eaton* eliar- 
acterizes the old genus Fsyckoda as follows : 

" Male antennie 14- t^i IS-jointed, with nodose flagellum composed 
of full sized joints as fur as the thirteenth joint of the antenna, fol- 
lowed by one, two or three diminutive joints and furnished with lialr 
inserted upon the symmetrica] or su bey m metrical nodes in verticles 
consisting of a series of eleven long haired verticles closely inoiiili- 
form, the eleventh including the diminutive joint or joints, wings 
ovate lanceolate, acute at the end of the m^ian vein; subcosta 
very short and rudimentary, ending in the radius and not linked to 
the costa." 

Since the European species of Psychodidse are quite numerous the 
Rev. Eaton t recently began distributing them in smaller genera. 
The generic redistribution has not been completed, but the followiag 
six genera have been distinguished In the old genus Peyekoda: 
Philosepedon, TAreiicua, Logima, Telmatoscopns, Xenapatet and 
Clytocerut. When it conies to distributing our species in the 
smaller genera, as suggested by Eaton, it will evidently be necessary 
to erect some new genera peculiar to North America. Dealing with 
the North American species the writer thinks it would be best for 
the present to retain the two old genera Psyehoda and Perieoma. 

Six of the new species described in this paper possess the charac- 
ters quoted above for Ptyehoda and have been placed in that genus. 
The three placed in the genus Perieoma have broader, wings, rounded 
at the apex between the simple branch of the radial sector and the 
median vein. Sycorax lanceolnln Kin. is a Tric}iom.yia; the third 
anal vein, ovipositor and ventral plale are not reduced as iu Sycorax, 
and the antennoe in Trickomyia are 15 jointed as in Sycorax, accord- 
ing to Eaton. In the collection received from Professor Snow the 
writer finds a new species of Trickomyia taken in Arizona. The 
39 species included in this paper from North America and Cuba

are geoerically distributed as fuUone : Psyekoda, 22 ; Pericoma, 13 ; 
Triehomyia, 2 ; Fleholomug, 2. This does not include P«. degenera 
Walker. 

In tbe paper recently mentioned Eaton maintains Chat the basis 
upon which the inferior pair uf genital appendages of the male are 
borne, is in reality the anal segment, which dorsally is abbreviated, 
sometiraea to a hair-like loop, tn make room for the opposed pair of 
superior appendages and the intromittent parts. That the homo- 
logue in the female is termed the subgenital plate. And that the 
edge of tlie basis has been mistaken by several entomologists for a 
basal joint of the inferior appendages viewed sideways; but that a 
2 jointed condition of the inferior appendages is unknown in Psy- 
ch od id le. 

The writer's observations agree with Eaten's statement concern- 
ing the single jointed condition of the inferior genital appendages 
of Che male. Some species bear a number of brietling, hair-like 
Centicles at the tip of the appendages, while others have a single, 
strong, clavat« tenticle, which has been mistaken by Banks and 
Riiicaid for a terminal segment. The shape of the basis bearing 
the inferior appendages shows very plainly in some species Chat It is 
nothing other than the reduced anal segment and not fused basal 
segments of the inferior appendages, as erroneously described by 
Banks and Kincaid. 

In the descriptions of North American species there has appar- 
ently been no mention made of the intromittent organ and the basis 
of the inferior male appendages, both of which are certainly struc- 
tures of importance. In two of the new species the thirteenth seg- 
ment of the antennie bears a terminal spike with two or three 
slight enlargements. Eaton considers these enlargements as distinct 
segments, but the writer is unable to detect any segmentation what- 
ever. In the descriptions of the new species, the following enumer- 
ation of the wing veins has been adopted : 0, subcosta; 1, radius; 
2, 3, 4, branches of radial sector ; 5, median vein ; 6, 7, branches of 
forked cubitus; «, 9, 10, anal veins; vein 4 being absent in Tricho- 
myise. The artificial key for Pericoma is original, while that for 
Pgychoda includes the list of eastern Peyelioda by Banks. The four 
plat«s included contain original camera lucida drawings, and Che 
lignres of the life history material were drawn largely from living 
specimens.

Through the kindness of Professor Snow the writer haa been per- 
mitted to examine Williston's type and will add the following 
notes: Wings rather broadly rounded at tip between two simple 
nervures; length 3.1 mm.; breadth 1.25 mm. Hair on wings prin- 
cipally dark brown, with reflected light; anterior fringe light; 
breadth .6 mm. ; posterior fringe broader, dark, except light patches 
between first and second anal veins, and at tip of wing, and a light 
brown patch at tip of third anal vein ; upper surface of wing with 
a rather distinct, narrow, transverse band of white, midway between 
furcations and tip of wing, bordered on its inner margin with a nar- 
row band of black; at the furcations a broader but less distinct 
band, consisting of scattered white hair; under surface of wings 
principally dark brown, with some scattered white hair; bifurca- 
tions about even, near middle of wing. 

One wing and part of the body is all that is left of the specimen. 
Should probably be Perieoma.

An Aquatic Psychodid from Florida. 

On the 19th of December, 1905. the writer collected a few lily 
|)ads and a little hay with whicli to niake a culture for I'erameniim. 
After the uiaM bad compleled the work on the J'eramceiiim the cul- 
ture was left standing in a large glass jar. In the latter part of 
January some very large nios<jnilo larvte and pu|we were found in 
the culture, and de^iiring to find out what species of mosquito they 
were, a cover was placed ou the jar and the emerging of some of the 
pu|ne awaited. On the afternoon of February 1st the jar was again 
examined and a few specimens of the mopquitoes were taken, and 
along with them some very small fuzzy insects, which were at once 
found to be flies. The next day on making a clo^r examination of 
the contents of the jar a large number of pupie and full-grown 
larvs were taken. Ou the morning of February 3rd a single batch 
of eggs was found. They had been deposited the night before by 
a female whowe wings ha*) become stuck to the glass c<)ver. And 
again, on the morning of the 6th, a second brood of very young 
larvie was found. Then all the life history material needed was at 
hand. 

In locating this peculiar little fly, which was found to be a very 
eaM' task, so far as the family was concerned, since its superficial 
cliaracters at oiice disclosed it to be a moth-fly, the writer was 
greatly surprised to be unable to find scarcely any literature on the

life history of the North American members of this faniilj-. Prof. 
Kellogg's account of Perieoma ealifontica Kin. contained our pres- 
ent knowledge of the lite history of the North American Psychodi- 
die. Psyohoda cinerea Banks was reared on manure by Kincaid, 
but the younger stages were not secured. Professor Kellogg also 
mentions the discovery of two pupie in a small stream in the Rocky 
Mountains of Colorado, which he thinks are Psychodid pupfe, but 
different from the pupas of P. ealifomica. The thoracic breathing 
tubes are long, tapering and flexible, but the flat, adherent, shield- 
shaped body is as in P. ealifomica. 

The life history and breeding habits of a number of the Euro- 
pean Psychodids have been studied in detail. Verrall bred Ps. 
humeralis Meigen from putrid snails, and Gunerthal bred the same 
from larvte feeding on rotten potatoes, C. O. Wuterhouse reared 
Pa. albipennis Zetterstedt upon decaying turnips, and it was also 
bred upon other decaying vegetable matter. The larvse of P». 
phalienoiden Linn6 has been found to feed upon all sorts of decays 
ing vegetable matter. The larvie of si)me EnropeHn Psychodids 
have been found to feed upon cow-dung. 

The accimnt of the aquatic Psychodid larvK and pupie discovered 
by Fritz Miiller in Brazil si)me twenty six years ago, and the paper 
by Miall and Walker on the life history of Perieoma cane^tcens, 
together with other notes on the early stages of Psychodidie, are 
found in the "Trans. Ent. fioo. Lond., 1895." Through the kind- 
ness of the Kansas University liie writer has recently had an oppor- 
tunity of reviewing these papers.

The larvse of the genera Perieoinn and Vlomyin are reported as

metre closely with Haliday'i; Pgyekoda thau Perieoma, and the adulu 
certainly belong t« the old genus Pnychoda. The writer believes 
that a more thorough study of the life histories and a careful com- 
parison of the Europeau and American material will do much 
toward establisliing a more perfectly satisfactory syalematic classifi- 
cation of this family of flies. 

The aquatic Psychodid discovered by Professor Kellogg in Cali- 
fornia, and described and figured by him in the February numl>er 
of the " Entomological News," 1901, ie of the same general type as 
the Brazilian forms, although it differs in many details. The larva 
is broad, with eight ventral suckers. The trachial gills present in 
the Brazilian larvee were not found in the California s[>ecimen». 
The pupa is flat and broad shield-shape, adhering to the surface on 
ffhicl. it resu. 

On comparing the aquatic Psychodid from Florida with P«. tali- 
fornica, the writer finds very little correspondence. It is more 
nearly of the type of Miall's aquatic form. The larva is long, slen- 
der and cylindrical, without the least sign of ventral sucking discs 
and anal trachial gills. It is semi-ai]uatic, l)eing able to remain 
under water for sometime without coming to the surface lo breathe. 
The pupa is of the usual Tipulidlike ty[>e, biding cylindrical, rather 
slender and possessing long, flexible thoracic breathing tui>cs. 

It will probably be well to include a f.-W notes on Professor Kel- 
logg's aquatic larvic and pupat before turning lo the life history of 
the Florida spceie.-. 

The larvie were found ahmidant on tiie first of Mareh ami later 
dates in the mountain streams of Snnta Clara County, California. 
They were present on the stones at the verge of the water, where 
they were kept moist by the sprays and current. When full grown 
they attain a length of 2.5 mm. and a breadth of 1 mm. From the 
figures tliey np[H'nr flat, but they are rather thick and the dorsal 
stiriacc (piiie firm. On ihf ventral surface are eight median seg- 
mentally arran^'^■d suckers, by which they h'llil firmly to the surface 
of the rocks. 'I'liere are no thoracic breathing tubes and oi)enings 
as described for Pv.iroma by Miiill, but simply a pair of anal spira-

The pupie were found atoug with the larvie, though usually a 
little higher up on the rock. They are 2.5 mm. in length and 2 
mm. wide at the middle; broad, shield shaped, flat and adherent. 
The pair of short, clavate, prothoracic breathing tubes are cylindri- 
cal, with a fine mesh-work covering. The dorsal surface is strongly 
chitinized, while the flat, adherent ventral surface is not, and the 
foldeil wings and legs lie uncovered, although protected hy the dor- 
sal wall. The pupse are without ventral suckers, but the adhesion 
is sufficient to prevent the occasional splashes of water which strike 
them from carrying them away. The pupse were found March 1st, 
and the larvie were first not«d at this time also. By the 5th of 
April they were more abundant than the lavs, and adults were 
emerging at that time. 

Tlie egg, larval and pupal stages of the Florida Psychodid are 
discussed separately. The adult fly is described in the first part of 
this paper as Ptychoda fioridim u. sp, 

EGG. 

The eggs are laid in irregular shape<l masses, presumably on the 
surface of the water, or on objects at the surface, where they are 
kept moist by the water drawn up by capillary attraction, for the 
young larvje were first found on the sides of the jar just above the 
surface of tlie water. The single packet which the writer was so 
fortunate as to find contained about three hundred eggs, and each of 
the two packets, from which the two broods of larvie came, must also 
have contained at least three hundred. Almut half of the eggs con- 
tained in the j»acket were placed in a shallow vessel of water, but 
nouc of them developed. Either they were not fertilized or their 
natural place of deposition is not under water. The former is, per- 
haps, the correct explanation for their failure to mature. 

The egg is about a quarter of a millimeter in length, oval tn 
shape, and with its length equal to three times its middle diameter. 
The yolk composes about half of the egg and is centrally located, 
causing that part to be quite opaque, while the remainder is clear. 
The wall of the egg appears to be divided up in small, circular pat- 
terns. As to the time required for the eggs to hatch the writer is 
unable to make a definite statement, but judging from the apjiear- 
ance of the second brood, he would place the upper limit at seventy- 
two hours, and most likely a shorter time is sufficient.

LARVA. 



The young larvae make their appearance on the sides of the jar 
just above the surface of the water. Here thev remain for some 
time, feeding npoii the decaying vegetable matter found in the sur- 
face film. The number of moults ca.-<t was oot determined, but 
specimens from 2-3 mm. long were found moulting. The skin 
splits open along the top of the head and thorax, after which the 
larva crawls bodily forward, leaving the moult behind. In one 
instance under observatinii tbe moult refused to slip, and in the 
struggle to free itself from it the larva severed one of ihe main 
tracheie near tbe posterior end, and died within a few minutes. 

About one day after the larvte hatch they become quite active, 
descending into the water, where, apparently urged by an unquench- 
able hunger, they scramble over and gulp in with their fang-shaped 
mandibles all that their spacious alimentary canal will hold, after 
which they return to tbeir "airy" perch, so to speak. This opera- 
tion is repeated from time to time, the older larvse spending most of 
the time in the water. 

There are no ventral sucking discs whatever. They stick to the

secretion, whicii continuously surrounds them and often makes it 
very difficult to study the mure minute details. 

The anal breathing lube is somewhat similar to that of mosquito 
larvse, although it is relatively much stronger. The two main 
trachese run side by side and (ipeu separately at the end of the tube. 
The external openings are armed with strong, tance()late cilia, 
mounted upon three small, retractile processes. The two main 
tracheie may be traced forward to tbe thoracic region, where each 
will be seen to have a side branch, wliich terminates as a short, 
black nipple on the dorsal surface of the prothoracic segment. 
While these thoracic air ni|)ples are present in the younger larvae, 
they are not so pronounced as in the older. They are slightly pro- 
tractile in the older larva. Tbe writer noticed in one living adult 
larva just before pupating that these nipples had already taken on 
the elongated structure of the thoracic breathing lul>e of the pupw, 
but he has been unable to find examjile^ of it in his preserved mate- 
rial. In larvfe that are " most at homo" in water just deep enough 
to cover their bodies, it can well be seen bow these nipples can l>e

feeding habits simitar to mosquito larvte, the advantage is less 
appareot. While feeding near the surface the tip of the abdomen 
is protruded above the water, while the head hangs down or is bent 
around so as to feed on floating vegetable matter. The larvffi are 
never particular about keeping the nipples above water, and bub- 
bles of gas are not seen to come off from them as from the anal 
spiracles. If these nipples really have spiracles they are unprotected 
and certainly of little importance as compared with the anal spira- 
cles, but the writer thinks that, in this species, they are simply the 
- rudiments of the pruthoractc tubes of the pupa and not used for 
respiration in the larva. 

After carefully examining a great number, both of living and 
preserved specimens, the writer is led to conclude thai there are no 
true anal tracheal gills. Several were examined under the high 
power of the microscope, and although a series of low papillse were 
seen to surround the anal ojiening, no trachex were found in iheni, 
nor were retracted gills present. In order to verify the conclusions 
reached by the microswipical examination, the following experiment 
was performed : 

Three larvie, one very young, one half grown, and the third 
almost full grown, were submerged in a vessel of waler under a 
small rubber ring to which a glass cover hud been cemented. There 
was perfect communication between their little apartment and the 
surrounding water, and they were given an abundance of food. 
They were placed under the cover on the morning of February 9th, 
and on examining in the evening were found to be still alive, but on 
the following morning were all dead. They were examined from 
time to tirae during the experiment, and it was noted that the anal 
papillie became enlarged and protruded somewhat from the body. 
It is very probable that these papillas are more strongly developed 
and possess true tracheie in some Psychodids, as described and 
figured by Muller for the Brazilian form, but the tracheie are cer- 
tainly absent in this species. 

Concluding from this experiment and from the microscopical ex- 
amination the writer is led to infer that in the larval stage of this 
species respiration is carried on principally through the system of 
traoheie, which have their external openings at the posterior end of 
the body and possibly in the thoracic air nipples. Although the 
experiment would seem to suggest that some oxygen is received 
from the water, it is evident that this supply is far too inadequate

to sustain life for any coosiderable length of time. While feeding 
the larva UBually allows the tip of the tube to extend out of the 
water, and wlien it descends into the water it is seen to throw ofl* 
bubbles of gas and invariblj returns to the surface after a verj 
short time. 

The segmentation is rather indistinct in living specimens, espe- 
cially in very young and some of the old ones. In cleared speci- 
mens the three thoracic and eight abdominal segments can be clearly 
made out. The annulation is much less distinct than in Perieoma 
caneseent. The lifth and sixth abdomiual segments each have three 
distinct aiinuli and the seventh two. The remaining abdomioal 
and thoracic segments are without distinct annuli. There is no 
marked break between the abdominal and thoracic regions of the 
body. The body is all covered with very fine, spine-like cilia, 
together with one or two long hairs on each side of the segmeuta. 
The head is dark brown in color, which makea it quite difficult to 
detect the small, black pigment eye spots- The antennie appear to 
consist of tufts of plates as in F. caneicene. The central part of the 
body is opaque, due to the presence of great quantities of food in the 
alimentary canal. The anal breathing tube is usually heavily 
charged with dark pigment, CBpecially at the tip. The annuli of 
the fifth and sixth segments and the second annuli of the seventh, 
together with the eighth segment, are each armed above with a 
email, chitinous shield. These shields decrease in size anteriorly 
and are entirely absent on the anterior segments The adult larva 
is about 8 mm. long, and varies in diameter from about ,6-1,3 mm. 
They are usually not so slender as the specimen figured, 

PUPA. 
The pupie are found concealed in the debris at the surface of the 
water, where their protlioracic breathing tubes extend above the 
surface. They are relatively active, being able to move quite freely 
by the lashing of the abdomen. The transformation from the adult 
larva to the pupa has been found to take place within twelve hours. 
The pupa, as is seen from the figures, possesses a girdle of conspicuous 
spines on each abdominal segment, especially the posterior one, 
tDfrether with two curved ones on the tip of the last segment, which 
aid in locomotion. The eyes, antennae, wings and legs are all dis- 
tinguishable on the surface. The thoracic breathing tubes are long 
and flexible, with a short, much wrinkled stalk, and a wider, cylin-

drical tertuiDal portion. Beyond the etalk the tube is rough and 
heavily charged with black pigment, except a narrow streak on the 
dorsal surface, which is lighter and bordered on each side with a 
row of small, circular papillie. These papillte also surround the tip 
of the tube and, accxtrding tn Miall and Walker, are the external 
openings of the trachea. As can be seen Irom a side view, the ante- 
rior end of the pupa is much the heavier, the posterior end tapering 
to rather ab acute point. 

The pupal period seems to vary a great deal. In two instances 
the adult emerged after a pupal period of two and a half days, while 
in some cases the pupa persiste as such for a week. The moulting 
and drying of the wings take place in a very short time. The 
writer has removed all the adults from the jar, and on returning an 
hour later has found a number of adults flying about in the jar. 
The pupie vary somewhat in size, but average about 3.75 mm. in 
length and 1 mm. in breadth. 

The imiiiature stages of the Psychodids are unfortunately too 
little known. The writer has recently discovered an aquatic iarva 
on the rocks above a waterfall near the University, which he thinks 
is a Psychodid larva, but is unable to say definitely until it matures. 
He thinks that the immature stages of other Psychodids can be 
obtained by means of prepared vegetable cultures and will work to 
this end during the coming spring and summer. 

Since this has been written Prof. V, L. Kellogg kindly informs 
the writer that one of his students has just complet«d, for publica- 
tion, the life history of one of the western species.

NOTES OM VEBTAIN DESCRIBED SPECIES OF 

OEOMETRID,E, WITH DESCRIPTIONS 

OP A FEW NEW SPECIES 



:, NEW BKTFNSWtCK, S. J. 

In the course of my studies od the Geometridse I have accumula- 
ted a number of ootes which, for the most part, are based upon 
specimens in the Hulst collection at New Brunswick, N. J. These 
are presented in this paper, together with descriptions of several 
new species, 
Rftehela latlpennla Halat (Trans. Amer. EdL Soc, xiiii. 254, ie96j. 

The single male type from California is the same as Rachela ocei- 
dentatis Hulst (Traoa. Am. Ent. Soc, xxiii, 254, 1896). This latter 
was described from Victoria, Brit. Col. (Danby), from one male and 
two females. The male is smaller than the average form otoeciden- 
talis and the maculation is well marked. Laiipennia is a large 
moth and rather abraded, hence Hulst's comparison with bruceata 
instead of occidentalis. The specimen is certainly unlike the male 
type of occidenlalu, but I have a series of intergrades both in size 
and ornamentation from British Columbia that leaves absolutely no 
doubt as to its correct position. LatipennU is described immedi- 
ately afl^r oceidentalii on the same page and thus falls before that 
name. 
R«ch«la hypcpborea Hulat (TraDs. Am. Ent. Soc, izlii. S54, 1866). 

The description of this species follows that of htipennis. The 
one type in the Hulst collection from Alert Island, Alaska, is 
smaller than any oectdentalig I have seen and approaches brueeala 
in color. It may be an extreme northern form of occidentatU rather 
than a distinct species. The maculation is indistinct and otherwise 
exhibits the peculiarities effected by a cold climate. 
Eucestia rotondata P&ck. vsr. ariamata Ort. (Can. Ent., tv, 1S6, 1883). 

I have a specimen from Yuma County, Arizona, received through 
Professor Smith, which from the description I take to be arizonata 
Grt. It is truly quite different from Packard's types of rotundata 
and therefore from his description, but Packard's specimens were old 
and worn and are otherwise so nearly like Grote's variety that the 
latter is hardly worth more than a synonym.

AMERICAN LEPIDOPTERA. 



This species was described with others by Dr. Packard in the 
above publication in advance of his Monograph, and in a later vol- 
ume of the same journal he gave a recognizable figure of it (svi, 
pi. 1, fig. 12, 1874). In a note preceding the descriptions he stated 
merely that the species were coliectetl in California, but the number 
of specimens of calijomiaia was not given. In the Monograph the 
description was repeated, and from the localities and dates given 
there were at least four specimens. 

In the Hulst collection there are four specimens as ca^i/omiata, 
but which represent two species. Of one of these there are three 
examples, one of which is marked as having tteen compared with 
Packard's type. This, however, does not agree with either the 
description or figure of ealifomiata. 

In the Packard collection there are three specimens with printed 
type labels, and two bear written name labels in addition, one Pbile- 
reme ealifomiata, the other Seotosia ealifomiata. The latter of these 
two is the species that Packard described and figured, and is the 
same as the single specimen Hulst had under this name; the former 
is like Hulst's "typical ealifomiata," of which he had three speci- 
mens. This has not been described, so is characterized below as 
Hi/driomena indefinala, new species. 

Califomiata must be transferred to Hydritrmena, though the 
change renders it necessary to rename it on account of its preoccu- 
pation in that genus. I should prefer to refer it to Meeoleuea where 
the name would not have Co give way, but the distinctly flattened 
antennae prevents its entrance into that genus. The D&nKpackard- 
aia is therefore proposed for ealifomiata.

The species differs markedly from packardata by its larger size, 
by the indefinite meculation and white spots on the veins, and, in 
the hind wings, by the much less scalloped terminal line, which in 
packardata ie dentate. The third specimen in the Hulst collection,

This name will have to be used for the American insect that at 
present goes under the name aenata Den, and Schiff, I have seen 
a large series of European specimens in the Packard collection and 
there are probably forty examples of the American species in the 
Museum of Katural History in New York. The position of the 
transverse lines is approximately the same in each, but in etuiaUt 
they are dark brown, very clearly defined, and in strong contrast to 
the almost white ground color, whereas in auraia the ground color 
is gray, the lines are indefinite and can scarcely be followed across 
the wing in some cases, and these difierences obtain throughout the 
series of each species. The illustration in Packard's Monograph, 
plate 8, 6g, 16, represents the European species, though his descrip- 
tion (1. c, p, 67) is that of aurola. Mr. Butler in Papilio, vol. i, p. 
222, says after seeing a Californian specimen that it is not the 
etBtiala of Europe, the occurrence of which he doubts in America. 
Wtiether this note of Mr. Butler's was overlooked by later writers 
or whether they did not coincide with his opinion ) am not in posi- 
tion to say ; but at any rate be was never followed and catiala is 
still found on our latest lists. 

A reference to atiraia seems to have been overlooked by Packard 
in his Monograph, and not having the particular paper in which 
the description appears, the reference above was kindly furnished 
me by Dr. Dyar.

This species, originally described as a Cleora, was later referred as 

a synonym of Metoleuea iruncata var. tkingvallata (Ent. News, vl, 
43), which variety now appears in Staudinger's latest list as an 
aberration of immanata. In Dyar's Catalogue it is cited as a syno- 
nym of immanata, not even varietal rank being accorded it. In the 
HuUt collection a female specimen of atrtfasdata stands as a Eutt-

N. Y., and three others io the Brooklyn Institute as Eiutroma nubt- 
lata, and these show that Hulst's generic reference is correct, but it 
is a very distinct species and has nothing to do with inmanata. 
The name atrifateiata is omitted from the index in Dyar's Catalogue 
and this coupled with the fact that it does not appear as a Cleora 
led Dr. Hollaod to conclude that the reference was overlooked 
(Moth Book, p. 344). 
MeaolencM eilial* HaUt (Tnoi. Am. Ent. Soc., iilll. 363, 1896). 

It has been suggested that this species is a form of M. herHliaUt 
On. Of the many forms of this latter species that I have seen 
none approached in coloration the peculiar combination displayed 
in elhela. Besides the type there is another identical specimen, also 
from Sierra Nevada, California, in the Edward's collection in the 
American Museum. The perfectly immaculate, pale yellow sub- 
basal area is singular, and there are other pointe which if they 
prove constant in ethela will hold the species abundantly distinct 
from herHliaia. 
MeaolencM «fc«et* Halit (Can. Eot., iix, IIT. 11196). 

I believe that this will eventually fall before Hydrimiena rejiala 
Grt. I have only the type of the former before me and a speci- 
men of the latter, which I have identified from the description, and 
while they represent respectively a light and dark form the delinea- 
tions and structural characteristics are precisely alike. The species 
is best referable to Hydriomena. 
Hjdrloinena ocel<i«n* HqIm. 

The receipt of additional specimens of this species has convinced 
me that Dr. Dyar is right in referring it as a synonym of curvilinea 
Hulst. 
HjdrlomcnR rrMDdlOM Halat (Cud. Ent., iii, 118. 1698). 

The male type at New Brunswick is the same as Mesoleuca impli- 
cata Gn., and Dr. Dyar tells me that the female type in the National 
Museum though larger and looking rather different from implieala 
is nevertheless prebably that species. I think it is quite safe to say 
that both names apply to the same thing. The species is almost 
intermediate in structure between Hydriomena and Metoleuea, but 
is probably best referable to Hydriomeiia.

sent me a specimen which agrees with the type at Washington, and 
from this it is immediately seen that It is a distinct species and that 
of the types of serieeata at New Brunswick, one which I bad taken 
for a much abraded example of eorrellatum is conspecific with it. 
The other type, however, is eorrellatum. Sericeala by the character 
of the antennie is referable to Selidosema. S. albescens Gross, is

This vas ori^Dally described as a dark variety of Tomot rubigi- 
nonu MoiT. =^ seolopaeinaria Gn,, but in Dyar'a Catalogue it appears 
as a distinct species. A rather loDg series of specimens shows it to 
be simply the male of seolopaeinaria, and indeed Guente in his 
description refers to tbe male as being reddish-bronn, while he 
speaks of the female as being yellowish-testaceous ; furthermore, 
rubiginottu, long since placed by Hulst himself (Ent. Am., iii, 11, 
1887) as a synonym teolopacinaria appears to be abJMtariiu. Abbot 
also figures both sexes as well as the larva on "Coreopiis [Primula'] 
auriculata or probably grandijlora," and from this Packard secured 
his illustration of the larva ou plate 13, fig. 3, of his Monograph. 
In the text lie also speaks of the variation in color of the adults, but 
he does not apply the two colors to the different sexes. Of my 
thirty specimens fifteen are pale yellow females, thirteen are brown 
males, while two males are intermediate between the extremes. 

This species is apparently common in Texas, and extends north- 
ward to Kansas and Missouri and eastward to Alabama and Florida.

This was described from a male and a supposed female- The 
former is not in my possession, bus is evidently a distinct species 
and being a male is probably also correctly referred to Selidosema. 
The supposed female type is before me, but instead of being a female 
of deliealum it is a male of SlergamatcBa inomata Hulst. The 
description of Stergamatcea is from a female only, so I append a 
generic diagnosis of the male. 

Palpi abruptly upturned, closely appressed to the head and ex- 
tending a little beyond the somewhat projecting front; tongue well 
developed ; antennse simple, filiform ; thorax hairs, the patagia pro- 
duced into tufts of fine long hairs much as in SpodolepU; abdomen 
smooth ; hind tibia slightly thickened, with two pair of spurs and a 
hair pencil. Venation as in the female.

This species was described from a single female from Colorado as a 
Cleora, but on the type label Hulst wrote "Selidoeema;" neverthe- 
less, perhaps, for want of a male, he retains the species in 0/eora in hie 
portion of Dyar's Catalogue. Male specimens at hand from Stockton, 
Utah (Spalding), shows it to possess no hair pencil on the posterior 
tibia, 30 the species may now with certainty be referred to Selidoeema,

NOTES ON THR SPRC'IES OF AHATHES HbN. 

BV JOHN B, SMITH, SCD. 
(Pl«t« IS-X.) 

Under the term Orihosia Ochs. we have long hfid in our lists a 
number of species which divided normally into two groups or seriex. 
One of these was robust, large, heavily built, with quadrate thorax 
like helva Grt. The other was much slighter, smaller, with smoother, 
convex thorax Wke ferruginoides Gn, That these could not remain 
united has been recognized ; but partly because of lack of material 
and partly Itecause there was doubt as to the identity of some spe- 
cies, matters have been left as they were. In his vol. vi, Sir George 
F. Hampson unites the slighter species of our "Orf/iosia" with the 
genus AmeUket Hbn., and makes it possible to identity and place ail 
our species. 

As thus defined Amatkea Hbn, has the " Proboscis fully devel- 
oped; paipi obliquely porrect, fringed with long hair in front, the 
3rd joint short; frona smooth ; eyes large, rounded ; antennse of male 
typically ciliated; head and thorax clothed with hair only; the 
tegulfe produced to a dorsal ridge, the pro- and metathorax with- 
out distinct crests; abdomen dorsally flattened, with lateral tiifis of 
hair and some rough hair at base but without crests. Forewings 
with the termen evenly curved." The eyes are naked and the legs 
are without spinulation or other armature $ave the normal spurs. 
As a minor character it may be noted that in all the species the 
reniform is dusky filled inferiorly. 

Within this genus are three sections, two of which contain Ameri- 
can g]>ecies : Section II with antennte of male minutely serrate, with 
fasciculate cilia, and Section III with male antennte ciliate only. 

Section I contains no recognized North American species. 

Section II contains two species only, both belonging in the series 
in which the antemedial or t. a. line of primaries is single, and the 
costal area of the secondaries is pale. Verberala is said to have the 
" frons black at sides," while bUolorago is one of those having the 
" frons concolorous at sides."

raodilied to contain only those forms, reads as follows :

hi. Forewing with the markinjn pale rafaas deHplcNB. 

Of these species immaculata Morr. aud americana Morr, are 
autoptically unknown to Sir George. The type of americana is in 
the Tepper collection, and is a poor example of the European lola; 
the type of immaenlata has disappeared. It should be in the collec- 
tion at Cambridge according to the statement in Morrison's descrip- 
tion ; but it is not now tii be found, and there is do record of what 
has become of it. The description leaves a doubt as to whether the 
species really belongs here. 

In arrangiug tlie material in my collection it became obvious that 
there were several new forms involved, and these were characterized 
as preliminary to a more careful study of some of the structural 
characters of the series. 

On both structure and maculation three series are obvious in the 
geuQs, and they are not even closely related, although for conven- 
ience they may be held together for the present under one generic 

The first series is the equivalent of Hampson's Section II, with 
the male antenna minutely serrate and fasciculate. This serration 
is variable in the species, never very strongly marked, and the fas- 
ciculation is as diverse, leaving a very small margin between the 
series 1, and some forms of series II. However, in addition to this 
anteniial character, all the species have trigouate primaries with 
arched osta, distinct apices and obliquely arcuate primaries on 
which the s. t. line is continuous and preceded by a darker shading ; 
characters which are obvious in both sexes.

JOBK B. SMITH,. eC. D. 347 

The males of all the species further agree in geDitalic Btructure. 
The aupra-anal plate ia of the usual triangular form, and the uncus 
is a long, simple curved hook of the usual type. The harpes are 
elongate, of moderate width, and drawo to a rather long point. 
AloDg the upper raargiu they are thickened, and at or behind the 
middle the corneous clasper Is attached. This clasper is rather 
short, stout, and divided into two forks or branches of which the 
interior is somewhat bood-like, with a serrate eitremity, while the 
exterior, lying next to the harpes, is more or less spatulate, drawn 
out and flattened. Within the limits of this series the agreement is 
close and the species form a thoroughly natural little group. 

Verberala Smith is the darkest, and, in a way, the best marked 
species. The ground color ia a sordid luteous, more or less tinged 
with reddish, mottled and blotched with smoky, and with & very 
conspicuous, angutated median shade. The dull smoky secondaries 
with broad costal and narrow exterior yellow margins are alike in 
both sexes. The black color at sides of front noted by Sir George 
Hampson is really only a small margin in front of the eyes ; but it 
is present and ia characteristic. 

Bicolorago Guen^, with its more usual form ferruginoides Ga., 
has a much lighter, more rusty yellowish ground color, the wings 
seeming altogether more thinly scaled. The maculation is all 
broken up and the shadings are purplish. The tendency is to 
darken the entire outer half of the wing ; the extreme is this direc* 
tion being the typical though rather more exceptional bicolorago, 
while the more common type in which the shadings are reduced to 
the broken up lines is ferruginoides. The median shade is rarely 
conspicuous in itself, and is not strongly angulated over the inferior 
half of the reniform. The secondaries are very like those ofverbe- 
rata, except that they seem more thinly scaled and the light color is 
paler, more reddish throughout. This is, perhaps, the most common 
and widely distributed species of the genus. 

Deeipiens Grote looks like a large, washed oat ferruginoides with 
yellow secondaries. The primaries are without contrasts of any 
kind, and the maculation is traceable merely. 

Acta Smith is a bright species, In which the secondaries are uni- 
formly bright lustrous yellow, almost transparent. The primaries 
are a little darker in ground color and are marked and mottled with 
brick-red ; sometimes approaching the appearance of /emi^iwoiWe*.

348 AifERICAN LEPIDOPTERA. 

All the markings are distinct, and the median shade, which tenda 
to tiecome prominent, is very much like that ofverberata in course. 

Straminea Smith is a small species, straw-yellow in appearance, 
with all the maculstion present but not conspicuous. Thes. t. space 
is somewhat darkened by a smoky shading and the reiiiform is dusky 
inferiorly, as usual. The secondaries, while they are pale, are dull, 
with a smoky tinge, and there is a darker outer border. 

The second series, with the antennte of the male ciliate only, is 
the equivalent of Hampson's Section III; but this contains two 
series more widely distinct than the difference between the series 
distinguished on the anteonal character alone. 

Superficially all of these species, except inops, differ from all the 
preceding in that they have a punctiform s. t. line ; and in gen- 
eral that line Is preceded on the costa by a distinctly darker patch 
filliug the s. t. space at that point. But that is a somewhat variable 
character, and while in the series it stands out conspicuously in each 
species, yet individuals occur in all of them in which the point is 
obscured. 

A series of three species, antapiea, purpurea and Jomiea have the 
primaries somewhat elongate, with acute apices, even or slightly 
depressed eosta and the outer margin a little excised below the apes. 
There is a tendency ta the darkening of the s. t, space, and the ter- 
minal space is concolorous or even a trifle paler. 

The sexual characters of the male agree remarkably in the form 
of harpes and clasper. Only 'm purpurea were the supra-anal plate 
and uncus examined, and in that species the latter is broad and flat- 
tened, altogether unlike the slender hook of the species in the pre- 
ceding series. The barpes in all the species are narrow, elongate, 
drawn out to a long point ; not so markedly unlike the bicolorago 
type, hut even narrower with a longer point. The superior margin 
of the harpes is thickened at base and to the middle, and then the 
chitinous thickening extends obliquely across to the inferior margin 
and may extend almost or quite to the tip. From the oblique 
thickening and almost at the middle of the part a rather stout, 
moderately long, curved hook arises, which becomes more slender 
toward the tip, but ends bluntly. Only in antapiea does this hook 
seem to be absent; but 1 believe that to be due to defective material 
rather than to a real divergence from its allies. Toward the apex 
and a little nearer the inferior mai^in is a chitinous, short, stout.

JOHN B. SMITH, BC. D. 349 

slightly curved or etraight tootb, claw or hwik, characteristic for 
each species, and this is ud the line of the oblique chitinous ridge 
already described. 

ArUapica Smith is a large, rough, powdery brown species; dull 
throughout and with stnoky, dark secondaries; the costal region 
paler, however. All the niaculation is distinct in this species, the 
median shade is strongly angulated and distinct, and in almost every 
case the costal dark patch in the a. t space is well defined. The 
excision below apex of primaries is not prominent, nor is that on the 
secondaries very strongly marked ; but the former is at least readily 
made out and the latter is obvious. The dark filled reniform is 
unusually conspicuous in this species. 

Purpurea Grote varies from reddish brown, often with a smoky 
suffusion to creamy luteoua; the latter being the variety eriipa of 
Harvey. This is the largest of the species and the wing form is 
most characteristic. The depression of the costal margin of prima- 
ries is evident, the apex is almost subfalcate in some examples, and 
the excision on the outer margin of secondaries is well marked. 
The surface tint is quite even whatever its color, and while all the 
markings are present they are not conspicuous. In dark specimens 
the lines are paler filled, and the veins through the outer part of the 
wing are pale marked. The s. t, line is pale, continuous, accom- 
panied by a series of black interspaceal dots. In dark examples the 
pale line is conspicuous and the dots are lost, while in pale individ- 
uals the line is scarcely noticeable and only the dots appear to rep- 
resent it The secondaries are dusky, the costal margin somewhat 
paler, and they vary in tint much as do the primaries. 

Fomica Smith is a decidedly smaller species tending to brick-red 
in color, in which the characteristic wing form is hardly obvious, 
while the agreement in niaculation and In essential structure is well . 
marked. The markings are all present but not prominent; and the 
most conspicuous feature is the dark mark on the ctjsta preceding 
the B. t. line. The secondaries are pale, transparent reddish, with a 
smoky clouding, which forms an outer band and discal spot. The 
8. t. line consists of a series of neat, small, interspaceal dots, without 
traces of an accompanying line. 

The remainder of the species, excluding inopg, difler from all the 
preceding species by having the uncus id the male furcate, or divi- 
ded into two divaricate prongs. These prongs are as long as the

single hook of the bicolorago series, and the etnicture is oonatant 
and not confined to this series of species only. The epedes as a 
whole are slighter bodied than those of the preceding series ; but the 
differences are so slight that it is difficult to draw the line. The 
costs of primaries is always arched, and generally the inner margin 
as well; but aggretea, in wing form, is very like antapica, except 
that on the secondaries there is a mere trace of the subapical exci- 
sion. The harpes of the males vary quite a little; that of aggreisa 
resembling the preceding series quite nearly, while that otralla has 
a series of spinules on the inner side of the tip. All the species 
agree in having as clasper a long, slender or moderate curved hook. 

Aggretm Smith is the palest of the species, and in niug form 
most like those of the previous series. In fact, taking only the first, 
superficial impression as controlling, its reference as an ally of pur- 
purea is the most natural. It is the palest in color of all the spe- 
cies, and in the terminal space in some examples there is a distinct 
wash of whitish. The median shade is especially well marked and 
is nearer to a real band than in any other of the species. The sec- 
ondaries are dirty gray or even whitish, and, altogether, this is a 
well defined form. The harpes of the male are drawn to a blunt 
point from the inferior margin, and there is no spinulation at tip, 
though there are isolated loDg bristles at the margin. The clasper 
is moderate in length, stout, well curved, with a blunt tip. 

Euroa Grote is a distinctly redder gray to brownish form, with 
shorter primaries, which have in the male always, and in the female 
usually, arched costal and inner margins. In some of the females 
the reddish-gray predominates, all the maculation is well written, 
and the appearance is very like that of the preceding species, save 
for the tendency to a dark terminal space and the reddish shade. In 
the males this narrow winged paler form does not appear to occur, 
and there is no difficulty in recognizing it. The secondaries are 
dirty whitish to smoky, with a pinkish or faint reddish tinge. In 
the male the harpes are shorter and broader than in its allies, the 
tip more obtuse and the margins set with longer, stiff bristles. The 
clasper is very long, more slender than in any other species, and 
well curved. 

Lhigcata Smith looks at first eight like a smaller, darker euroa, in 
which there is a tendency to a blackish shading; and with males of 
euroa only at hand for superficial comparison, that conclusion would

JOHM B. BMITH, BC. D. 351 

be justified. But with a series of both sexes for companson, the 
difference between the two species becomes obvious. lhacata is 
uniformly smaDer, more brown in ground, and more suffused with 
blackish. The primaries are shorter, broader, and similar in the 
sexes; the outer margin with not a trace of an incurve below the 
apex. In the primarj' characters of the male the difference is 
emphasized. The harpes are much longer and narrower than in 
evroa. and at the tip there is a small series of spinules directed 
inwardly. The clasper is shorter and stouter than in euroa, but yet 
of good length and moderately curved. 

Kalla Grote and Robinson differs from the others of this series in 
its rusty yellow color and general resemblance Xn Jemiginoidee. The 
shorter, broader primaries and the punctiforni s. t. line will differen- 
tiate it at once, however, when the male characters cannot be referred 
to. The uniform yellow secondaries give it a nearer appearance to 
(Ida, which is of another fannal region. In the male structures this 
species departs a liille from the other species in this series by the 
oblique fringe of spinules at the tip of the moderately elongate 
harpes. The clasper is the same curved hook, but shorter, and on 
the whole stouter in appearance. 

Inopi Grote is altogether out of place here; but my material is 
too scant to work out its affinities at present. It resembles a small 
ralUi in color and wing form, but has the s. t. line c<mtinuuus, pre- 
ceded by a dusky shading, much more even than in the first series. 
In the genitalia of the male it is different in all points from the 
other s{>ecies referred here, As to the uncus I cannot speak, because 
I have had no material of my own available for dissection. In the 
harpes we have a composite structure, the clasper being not really 
separated from it. A horny plate runs through the lower half of 
the harpes from baaal third to the inferior angle at tip, and there 
it is produced into an irregular serrate process. At about the 
middle of this plate there is a small, cylindrical, obtusely terminated 
spur. 

There are at least two other allied, undescribed species in collec- 
tions, but in single specimens and in no condition to form satisfac- 
tory types. 

As to the species here noted they may be arranged in taliular 
form as follows :

There are only single examples from each locality, indicating that 
it is not exactly common ; hut they are all very much alike, indica- 
ting that there is no very great range in variation. There are 
several examples from Kaslo in the collection of the United States 
National Museum. 

So far as examination baa been made, the sexual tuflings of the 
male correspond closely with those described for hicolorago ; but 
material for destructive study has not been available,

Id this species I have under examination a very interesting series 
of considerably over 200 examples." Besides my own- collection, 
there are more than 70 examples from the U. S. National Mu^um, 
which are particularly useful because of the range of localities and 
because there is a series of seven bred specimens; tliere is also a 
seriea of about n dozen examples from the Museum of the Brooklyn 
Institute, showing extremes of variation ; Mr. O, Buchholz has sent 
me a large number of examples, spread and nnspread from Mani-

toha, which illustrate local rauge, and with the smaller coDtributious 
I have an ezcelleDt basis ibr a study of the species. . . . 

First of all, it should be said that the structure of the male geni 
talia is practically identical throughout. I have examined speci 
mens of each type and from almost every locality, and a series of 
dry specimens from Cohasset, Mass., furnished a large lot of matC' 
rial which was softened in liquor potassa and from which the genital 
structures were then dissected out entire. In the corneous porta, 
clasper and uncus, there is absolutely do perceptible variation; in 
the harpes, or side pieces which are less chitinized, there occurs a 
very slight variation iu details of outline; but so slight as to be 
unnoticeabie, except on close comparison. The abdominal brush is 
also identical throughout. 

In locality the specimens range from Maine to Tesas, to the 
Mississippi Valley to South Dakota and to Manitoba. I have noth- 
ing from the Rocky Mountain region nor from the Pacific Coast. 
As to dates of capture, they begin in early September, extend 
through October, and a few examples are marked as taken in May, 
indicating a. form that hibernates in the adult stage. 

The range of size is unusual for a Koctuid : the smallest example 
expands 1.10 Inches and is a i ; the largest expands 1.50 inches 
and is a 9 , the largest ^ reaching almost as much, or 1.48 inches. 

In ground color the primaries may be anything from a pole lute- 
ous to coppery red-brown, and the secondaries range from uniform 
glistening reddish -yellow to black. Usually the primaries are more 
or less powdered with block scales; but sometimes they are almost 
uniform reddish brown, the other extreme coming in when all 
beyond the median line is black or blackish, making a typical 
bicolorago. In what may be considered the normal form of /erru- 
ginoides, the primaries are of a tolerably even rusty luteous, with 
blackish or darker brown powderings, which first become more 
noticeable over the median shade, making that broader and more 
diffuse, and then darken the s, t. space to the" a. t. line which is 
thereby relieved and made more prominent. The terminal space is 
usually not quite so dark as the sub-terminal. As a rule the dark 
secondaries go with the dark primaries, and all the bicolorago that 
I linve seen have the hind wings black. As the primaries become 
paler the secondaries follow, and a mottled forewing means, usually, 
a hindwiug in which the disc is blackish. In the bred senes from

the U. S. NatioDftl Museum the primaries are iD most cases quite 
uniforiD, but rather unusually luteuse brown, and the secondaries are 
blackish ; but the palest specimen is paler throughout, and the only 
mottled example has the secondaries also mottled. I have attempted 
to determine whether locality had anything to do with the amount 
of mottling; but this seems not to be the case. Series caught at 
one time in one place are apt to be very similar; this is proved by 
the series from Manitoba, and by the material from Cohasset ; but 
in the U.S. National Museum collection there are 28 examples from 
one general region in New York Statt', and the full range of 
variation is represented in this lot. Thirteen of these examples 
are from Mr. David Bruce, and while most of them are dark or 
strongly mottled forms, the more UDiform red-brown forms are also 
represented. 

Altogether this is an excellent example of a decidedly variable 
species, with two well-marked forms connected by a full series of 
intei^rades. Typical bicolorago is rare; forms nearly immaculate 
are also rare ; the mottled form in which there is a more or less 
diffuse median sliade and a dusky subterminal space is by all odds 
the most common. 

The large series of dry specimens from Cohasset, to which refer- 
ence has been made, gave an excellent opportunity for studying the 
structure of the hair pencil which is attached to the base of the 
abdomen in the male. The first abdominal segment is dorsal only, 
and ends at the lateral line of the body where the front margin of 
the ventral portion of the second abdominal segment joins the tho- 
racic structure. Attached just at the extreme outer edge of this 
second segment, where it joins the dorsal portion of the first seg- 
ment is a long strip of chitin, broadening toward the lateral margin 
and from there produced into a long curved stalk, at the end of 
which is a round concavo convex disc-like structure. The curva- 
ture of this stalk is such that when at rest it lies close along the 
edge of the first segment. The under or concave side of this disc is 
set with pittings, and from the margins of these pittings conies a 
dense mass of very long fine hair, forming a slender pencil, almost 
half the length of the abdomen. This pencil normally fits into a 
membraneous pocket which is attached on the inner wall of the 
abdomen, reaching to the end of the fourth segment. The opening 
to this pocket is on the lateral Hue of the second and third segments.

that part of the pocket that lies inside the fourth segment having 
no opening to the face of the ring. This part is also soniewhat 
curved and a little enlai^d, to receive the folded up tip of the pen- 
cil. On the second abdominal segment, just above the edge of the 
slit opening into the pocket, is an elongate flap bordering a depres- 
sion ill which a portion of this pencil lies folded up, and acting as a 
cover and protector to it. That part of the pencil beneath this flap 
is quite apt to be darker in color than the rest of iL 

Covering the sensory disc, the pedicel and the base of the pencil, 
is a delicate, elastic membrane, attached for the greatest part to the - 
first abdominal segment and serving as a complete covering to the 
structure while it lies at rest 

The species is sometimes common locally, and the larva, accord- 
ing to r)r. Dyar, feeds on maple.

Mr. Grote's type was a female from Northern Indiana, taken in 
June, and that is the only example now in the British Museum. 
Hampson was therefore compelled to place the species in the section 
in which the male had the antenna ciliate only, by guess. The 
occurrence of a good male shows a close ally of bicolorago, and, 
indeed, Mr. Grote's comparison with that species or its variety /w- 
ruginoides, is justified throughout. 

A specimen in my own collection is from Elizabeth, New Jersey, 
taken October 19th, by Mr. S. T. Kemp. I have seen, altogether, 
only four examples of this species, so it can scarcely be considered 
common in a territory which is fairly well collected over. 

Soc., iixiii. 133, OrOiotia. 
My examples are from Corvaiis, Oregon, September to Novem- 
ber; Livingston and Corfield, Vancouver, in September; and Pull- 
man, Washington, in October. The species is therefore of the 
Northern Pacific Coast area, and will probably occur throughout 
that general region. The species varies a little in depth of color, 
and it is not improbable that examples of it are in collections as 
pale forms of ferruginoidet. Examples are in at least two other 
collections that I have seen.

The original description and the preceding notes teil practically 
all that I know of this species. I have only two males, both from 
Colorado ; tbe type, a fairly good example from Glenwood Springs, 
\a October; the other a decidedly rubbed specimen without date or 
other intbrraation. I am not aware that I have seen others in col- 
lections that I have recently looked over.

This ia a very distinct and characteristic species, probably not 
uncommon and with a coiisiderabJe range of variation. I have it 
from Corvallis, Oregon ; Pullman, Washington ; and Corfield, Van- 
couver ; the dates ranging from the eud of September to tbe middle 
of November. It is an ally of the crispa form of purpurea; but 
alti^ther a rougher more coarsely powdery species. The range of 
distribution ia like that of acta, and the difference between the punc- 
tiform a. t. line of this species as compared to the continuous line of 
acta is almost like that obtaining in the east between femtginoidet 
and ralla.

The base of my knowledge of this species is a nice series of speci- 
mens in the collection of the U, S, National Museum, in which both 
the purpurea and erispa forms are represented. The range of vari- 
ation is considerable, and greater than is indicated in the original 
types of the species ; but I believe Sir George Hampson has ex- 
tended it to include the species that I have separated off as antapiea. 
In the catalogue above cited, the localities Vancouver and Oregon 
almost undoubtedly apply to antapiea, while the California localities 
only are really applicable to purpurea and are from the type exam- 
ples. I have nu doubt whatever of the distinctness of the two spe-

cies that I have separated here, aod from the material knowD to me 
and from the general run of geographical distribution I doubt 
whether the tr\ie purpurea or crUpa occur in the Vancouver faunal 
area and that antcpica runs down to Sauzalito. 

A comparison of the figures of the i genitalia will show at once 
sufficient differences not due to variability, to enhance the superficial 
characters referred to. Not only are the harpes materially different 
ID outline ; but the form of the small accessory clasper is altogether 
different in the two species. 

Dr. Dyar has bred this species and has described the larva from 
Alameda Co., California, as feeding on hollyhock and plantain. 

Except this, only the type localities are known and the dates are 
October and November. 



I have only a single example of this species. Fortunately It is a 
male and in good condition, so that its relationships are apparent. 
It is tagged with the old "S. Cal." locality label, and I have abso- 
lutely no present guide as to its original source. It has evidently 
been respread since I had it, and if it ever had any distinctive label 
it has disappeared. In appearance and color it is much closer to 
anbipica than to purpurea, but is smaller, smoother and more neatly 
marked. In genital structure the relation to antapiea is equally 
clear and the difference is rather in details than in character. I do 
not consider it beyond the bounds of probability that this is a 
dwarfed aberrant antapiea with an erroneous locality ; but I do not 
believe it to be so.

This looks not unlike a faded eurora and is probably in collec- 
tions uuder that name. I have it from Cartwright, Manitoba, with- 
out date, taken by Mr. Heath ; from Chimney Gulch near Denver, 
Colorado, in July, taken by Mr. Oalar, and from Clear Creek Canon, 
Colorado, in August, through Dr. Barnes. The wing form is almost 
elongate enough to justify association with purpurea ; but the faseiea 
which is so easily recognized and so difficult to describe suggests 
ev,Toa. even more slrongly, and that is borne out by the genital 
structure, which has been already described.
