UR. OTTO STAUDINGER.
The death of this prominent Lepidopterist is announced as having
taken place on October 13, at Lucerne, Switzerland, during a journey
undertaken for his health, and at the age of 71 years. Dr. Staudinger's
work is well known. It has been given to few to acquire his influence
over theoretical and practical workers alike. The new edition of his
standard catalogue of palearctic Lepidoptera, upon which the work has
been long in hand, has not yet appeared, but may very shortly be
expected. In this place we can only express our profound regret at
the closing of a long and prosperous career which has greatly benefited
the general cause of Entomology. — A. R. G.
