March, 1905.] BuENO : HEMIPTERA FOUND NEAR NEW YORK. 29 formations. We believe that this species always hibernates as full grown larva and not in any other manner. Identity of Culex abfitchii Felt. — This is the form described as " cantans I " by Mr. Knab and myself (Proc. Ent. Soc. Wash., vi, 143, 1904). What Dr. Felt calls cantans is a third form, figured as cantans by Dr. J. B. Smith and which we had not previously distin-guished. It will be found defined in the preceding table. The com-parison of European material is now more urgently needed than before. Larva of Melanoconion atratus Theob. — Mr. Theobald has published a photograph of this larva (Mon. Culic, III, pi. xvi, 1903), but the enlargement is insufficient to bring out any of the distinctive characters. I have received the species from New Orleans, from Dr. Dupree (through Dr. Howard). It belongs in the territans group and falls near melanurus, but the spines of the comb are in a less reg-ular row than in that species, while the whole body is minutely pilose. Class I, HEXAPODA.
