work and have brought back many treasures, which in due time will be worked
up and reported upon ; thus, useful knowledge will be disseminated as to the
geographical distribution of species, their life habits, and varying foods in
widely separated localities. Of the officers of the Geological Survey Depart-
ment, Mr. Joseph Keele, collected during the past summer along parts of
the Stewart and Pelly Rivers in the far oflf Yukon. Mr. W. J. Wilson again
visited the Hudson Bay slope and was this year along the height of land.
Mr. T. P. Reilly, of the Alaska Boundary Survey, and Mr. Douglas H.
Nelles, of the same Survey, brought back small collections, the former from
near Sixty Mile River, along the 141st meridian in the Yukon, and the lattei
from Bartlett Bay, off Glacier Bay, Alaska. Mr. Andrew Halkett, Naturalist

in tlie Provinces of Saskatchewan, around tlie Qu'Appelle Lakes^ and in
Alberta around Beaver liake, which localities he was visiting to study the
local fishes, but found time to collect several interesting insects. Mr. J. B.
Wallis, of Winnipeg, collected at Banff, in the Rocky Mountains, and at
Peachland, in the Okanagan Valley, B.C., where he made large collections
of insects during July and August. Dr. E. M.' Walker, of Toronto, spent
the summer at the Georgian Bay Biological Station, at Go Home Bay, Ont.,
where he made interesting observations on aquatic insects. He also took
short trips to Nepigon and Fort William, where he made important collec-
tions of orthoptera and odonata. In the monih of June, Mr. W. D. Kearfott,
the well known microlepidopterist, of Montclair, N.J., paid a visit of a few
days to Ottawa, where he made large collections at various places in the dis-
trict. Dr. Henry Skinner, of Philadelphia, also visited Canada and, after
addressing our members at the summer meeting in the beginning of July,
proceeded with Dr. Fletcher to Nepigon where two days were spent. They
then went to Aweme, Man., and had four days collecting with the Messrs.
Criddle, after which a long trip was taken in company with Mr. T. N. Will-
ing, along the Canadian Northern Railway; districts visited were, the GFoose
Lake district west of Saskatoon, Duck Lake, Prince Albert, Elinistino, Radis-
son, Lloydminster, Edmonton, Calgary, Banff and Laggan. From Laggan
Dr. Fletcher went alone to Vancouver Island. Large numbers of insects
were collected in all localities mentioned above. Mr. Gibson spent the first
three weeks in September at Rostrevor, on Lake Rosseau, Muskoka, and not-
withstanding the unfavorable season, collected enough insects to indicate the
•richness of the locality. Mrs. Nicholl, of Bridgend, South Wales, this year
made a third expedition to the Rocky Mountains and British Columbia, for
the special purpose of collecting butterflies. In part of her expedition she
was accompanied by Mr. F. H. Wolley-Dod, and, on the whole, these trips
were very successful. Mr. Dod has kindly provided us with several of Mrs.
NichoU's records in laddition to his own, and there is much of the material
still to be worked up.

We have again to express our great obligation to the leading specialists
in the IJnited States for their constant courtesies in naming material for our
Canadian collectors. Dr. Howard, of Washington, with his assistants; Dr.
J. B. Smith, of New Brunswick, N.J., Prof. H. F. Wickham, of lowa City,
Mr. W. D. Kearfott, of Montclair, N.J., and Mt. E. P. VanDuzee, of Buffalo,
have placed us all under deep obligations to them. Sir George F. Hampson,
of the British Museum, has not only sent several copies of his valuable cata-
logue to those who have contributed specimens to the British Museum, but
has also corrected the names of some species which had been standing under
wrong names in Canadian collections for some years.

LiTEEATUEE.

Among the many valuable works, reports^ and separate papers which have
dealt with Canadian insects and which have appeared during the past year,
special mention may be made of the following :

BuscK, August, Revision of the American Moths of the Genus Argyres-
thia (separate from Proc. T7. S. National Museum, Vol. XXXII., pp. 5 to
24, plate IV., V.), Washington, D.C., 1907. In this important pamphlet,
Mt. Busck gives a monograph of the American species of these most attractive
and beautiful little moths. All the species are figured except three doubtful
species which are unknown to the author. Of particular interest to Canadian
collectors are A, conjugella which is occasionally destructive to apples in
British Columbia and A, thuiella, which has been noticeably injurious to the

American Arbor- vitee, or White Ceda«r, of Eastern Ontario and Western Que-
bec, for the past tbree years. With Mr. Busck's excellent paper there should
be no trouble in recognizing any species that have been described.

CaudeIiL, Ajidrew Nelson, The Decticinse (a group of Orthoptera) of
North America, ninety-four figures. (Separate from Proc. XJ. S. National
Museum, Vol. XXXII, pp. 285-410, published May 23, 1907.) An important
paper and one which will b^ of great help to those studying Orthoptera. Mr.
Caudell deals in an exhaustive way with a group which has been found very
troublesome to students. His opportunities to study a large number of
specimens and also of having travelled extensively in the localities wheve
many species occur have given him facilities which few have enjoyed. The
figures given are excellent and will be of great assistance to those working at
these difficult insects. Several published species have been reduced to
S3monyins and new genera, have been erecled, but the work is very thorough
and all orthopterists will be grateful to the author for this timely monograph.

Chittenden, F. H., Sc.D., XT. S. Department of Agriculture, Insects
Injurious to Vegetables. Small 8vo. New York. Orange Judd Co., 262
pp., 163 illustrations. This is a handy little manual treating briefly of the
best known insects which attack vegetable crops and giving the remedies
usually applied. Preliminary chapters deal with the value of a knowledge
of entomology, the classification of insects, practical agriculture and artificial
remedies, and apparatus. Not only will this book be df use to gardeners, but
it should be a convenient handbook for students and teachers.

Dyar, H. G., Report on the Mosquitoes of the Coast Region of California,
with Descriptions of New Species. (Proc. 17. S. Nat. Museum, Vol. XXXII,
pp. 121-129). Although a paper of only a few pages, this article by Dr.
Dyar will be read with much interest by our western dipterists, as it deals
with many species which are found in British Columbia and some other parts
of Canada. Anopheles maculipennis of the West is now Anopheles occiden-
talis D. & K. A majority of the species treated either have been already
found 'in British Columbia or are sure to be discovered as more extensive
collections are made. The value of securing the preparatory stages is shown
in many instances in the present paper. Anyone having opportunities of
rearing the larvae of mosquitoes should be careful to save the exuviae and
forward them to Dr. Dyar with the specimens for examination, remembering
always that a few perfect specimens are of far more value than a large num-
ber of broken ones.

Casey, T. L., A Revision of the American Components of the Tenebrio-
nid sub-family Tentyriinse (Washington Academy of Sciences, Vol. IX, pp.
276-522). October 18, 1907. In this important work Major Casey mono«
graphs in a thorough manner and brings up to date all that is known of J'that
part of the great family Tenebrionidse, having the abdominal segments un-
modified by a coriaceous hind margin and the middle coxae enclosed externally
by the sterna alone, without the intervention of a small piece attached to the
coxae and sometimes separating the sterna, known as the trochantin." This
was Leconte and Horn's definition of the subfamily and has been adopted
tentatively for the meantime. The author suggests that he may have over-
stepped the limit of prevailing conservatism in proposing new genera, but
the high quality of Major Casey's work during many years has proved
that although it has occasionally been somewhat severely/ criticised, on
account of this very feature, and the great convenience and stability of a large
proportion of his differentiations, these are being adopted more find more
even by the most conservative. As in the case of his work on Staphylinidae,
noticed last yeaT, much foreign material has been used in making comparison

with American forms. The advantage of this is shown in many places. We
trust that Major Casey may at no very distant date treat the other subfamilies
of the Tenebrionidae in the same thorough manner as he has done ii^ this pub-
lication.'

GiLLBTTE, C. p., Chermes of Colorado Conifers (Proc. Acad. Nat.
Sciences, Philadelphia) January, 1907 (separates issued April 2, 1907), pp.
22, plates 11. This article by Prof. Gillette is th^ most important contTibu-
tion towards our knowledge of the spruce gall lice which has yet appeared.
It is copiously and beautifully illustrated and the different new species
described are dealt with in an exhaustive manner. Chermes Cooleyi is the
name given* to the large and handsome gall found in British Columbia upon
the Sitcha Spruce, and the gall, as well as the insect in all its stages of de-
velopment,, are figured and described with great detail. This paper will be
welcomed by all homopterists who will be glad to have these different species
characterized. In the past nearly all the gall making species of Chermes
found on spruce have been called Chermes ahietis,

Hampson, Sir. George P., (Bart.), Catalogue of the Lepidoptera Phal-
»nae in the British Museum, Vol. VI, Noctuidee, 1906, pp. 532, plates XCVI
to CVII. Sir George Hampson's new volume appeared early in the year and
through his kindness and that of the Trustees of the British Museum was
presented to several of the members of our Society who had helped by send-
ing good specimens to the British Museum collection. This volume is of
particular interest to Canadians from the large proportion of insects belong-
ing to our fauna which are included among the 692 species described. Of
the 322 coloured figures given on the plates no less than 141 species have
been already taken in Canada or are quite likely to occur within our limits.
The range of the present volume is **the CucuUian®, the third of the fifteen
sub-families into which the Noctuidse are divided. This subfamily is
characterized by its trifid neuration of the hind wing combined with spine-
less tibiae and smooth eyes surrounded by eyelashes of bristle-like hairs.
It forms a group of genera very closely related to the Acronyctinae, the
lowest of the subfamilies of the Noctuidse Trifinee." This volume is of
great importance to all North American students. From correspondence
with Sir George Hampson it is apparent that there are a great many species
of North American Noctuidee, of which good specimens would be most
acceptable for the British Museum. It is manifestly to the advantage
of everyone to help now by sending specimens to Sir George Hampson,
particularly those concerning the identity of which there is any doubt. He
will gladly examine and report upon them. It may be noted that Prof. J.
B. Smith, who is one of ourselves, is closely in touch with Sir George Hamp-
son and has been of great assistance to him in the volume now referred to.

Kearfott, W. D., New North American Tortricidse; Transactions of the
American Entomological Society, Philadelphia, Vol. XXXIII, No. 1, pp.
1 to 98. (Separate signatures mailed as issued between Feb. 2 and March
27, 1907.) In this article 159 species and 4 varieties are described as new,
and of these 20 species are from Canada. This valuable contrib tion will
be of great value to Canadian students of microlepidoptera, in whose behalf
the author has been so untiring in his efforts. Many hundreds of speci-
mens have been submitted to him from collectors in all parts of the country
and he has been most generous in naming and returning authoritatively
labelled material. Our Ottawa members not only had the great pleasure
of meeting Mr. Kearfott when he paid us a short visit last spring but had
the privilege of accompanying him to the field, where they got muc*" valu-
able information as to the best ways of oolleoting and rearing microlepid-
>tera. Mr. Kearfott's enthusiasm was an inspiration.
