Coquillett. The present paper is an attempt to settle the question of what species is the type of each North American and European genus of Anthomyidae that has been proposed up to the present time, a ques-tion of vital importance both as regards the synonymy and also the correct names for the various genera. In those cases where the origi-nal describer of a given genus did not designate the type species, and more than one species was mentioned or described, the first species, or at least the first of the recently recognized species, has been selected as the type, and when none of the species have been recently recog-nized the question of the type species has been left open ; cases of the latter kind are chiefly confined to Rob.-Desvoidy's ill-conceived and very imperfectly described genera and species, and it is to be hoped that some one more familiar with the Anthomyidae of France will settle this phase of the question in a satisfactory manner.
