The closing lines in Mr. Scudder's paper should therefore be amended' so as to read thus : " In Linne's mind which was a typical Papilio — Rhamni, or Antiopa, or Machaon ? The answer is simply tha^ Linne in his study arrived at the conclusion that the first class of his Papilio should be formed by the Equites. I would remark, however, that Linne never speaks, as far as I know, of any particular species being the type of its class, and this idea that his first species is the type is of very recent date. The fact that so few Entomologists have the opportunity of consulting,. Linne's older works, induced me to publish these statements. MICRO -LEPIDOPTERA. 15Y V. T. CHAMBERS, COVINGTON, KENTUCKY. (Continued from pas;e 153.) ANTISPILA. A. cornifoliclla /Clem. Can there be two Antispila miners of the Dog-wood ? Either there • must be, and my specimens are specifically distinct from this species, or Dr. Clemens' description is strangely erroneous in at least one particular, . viz., the color of the fascia and streaks, which he says are golden in cornifoliclla, but which are silvery white in my specimens, all of which — six in number — agree exactly in ornamentation, and all but one of which ; are bred specimens. The species of the genus generally resemble each other very closely, and some recognized species do not difter from each . other more than my specimens do from Dr. Clemens' description. Neither is it improbable that two species mine the leaves of the Dogwood, for the same thing occurs in Europe, where A. Pfeifferella and A. Treitschkiella-both mine the leaves of Cor?ms safiguinea. A. cornifoliclla and my specimens both mine the leaves of Corniis florida. I subjoin Dr.
