INTRODUCTION.



IN preparing the present Catalogue, the principal object
has been to give a complete list of all the specimens of Myria-
poda contained in the collection of the British Museum, indi-
cating, at the same time, the peculiarities of each, as regard
age, sex, variety of colouring, condition, habitation, and the
source from whence it has been derived.

With this view, the different individuals of each species
contained in the collection are indicated by the letters a, 6, c,
&c., following the name of the species and its synonymes.

The habitat is given as particularly as the materials pos-
sessed by the Museum permit. The specimens which have
been presented to the Museum, have the name of the donor
marked immediately after the habitat.

The collection is arranged in conformity with a paper on
the classification of these animals, lately read by Mr. Newport
at the Linnean Society, which will appear in the forthcoming
volume of the Transactions : and as the Museum collection has
been the chief source from whence Mr. Newport has derived
his materials, they may be regarded as the type-specimens of
the species described in that paper, and in Mr. Newport's pa-
per in the ' Annals of Natural History.' The collection also
contains the type -specimens of the species described by Dr.
Leach, in the 'Zoological Miscellany;' of the North-

346403



VI INTRODUCTION.

American species described by Mr. Thomas Say in the * Trans-
actions of the Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia ; '
also by myself, in Griffith's translation of Cuvier's ' Animal
Kingdom.'

To give some idea of the extent of the collection, I may
state that M. Brandt, in his Memoirs in the 'Bulletin de
1'Academie Imperialedes Sciences de St. Petersbourg,' the last
general work on the subject, indicates 16 ascertained and 9
doubtful species of Chilopoda, and 117 ascertained and 16
doubtful species of Chilognatha : the Museum collection con-
tains 94 species of the former and 75 of the latter order, the
majority of which appear to have been unknown to that author.
