PROC. ENT. SOC. WASH., VOL. 43, NO. 8, NOV., 1941 187 RECORDS OF TENNESSEE CHRYSOPIDAE (NEUROPTERA).' By Wm. E. Bickley, University of Maryland, College Park, Md. In 1934 I became interested in the family Chrysopidae and subsequently collected several hundred specimens in various parts of East Tennessee. Most of this material is now in the collection of the Department of Entomology of the University of Tennessee. Further studies have been made of Tennessee material in the collections of the University of Tennessee, the U. S. National Museum (courtesy of Dr. A. B. Gurney), the Museum of Comparative Zoology at Harvard University (cour-tesy of Professor Nathan Banks) and the Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia (courtesy of Messrs. E. T. Cresson, Jr. and John Rehn). A.t least one specimen of each species in the list that follows was sent for determination or verification to the late Mr. A. N. Caudell, to Professor Nathan Banks, or to Dr. Roger C. Smith, and this help is gratefully acknowledged. The late L. C. Marston, Jr., and David A. Johnson helped with the collecting. Their initials in the list indicate that they col-ected at Knoxville one or more specimens of the species con-cerned. Unless otherwise noted, collections are my own. Allochrysa virginica (Fitch). This species, which is often associated with aphids on oak trees, is known to be of eastern distribution, ranging from Massachusetts to Florida. Specimens are recorded from Knoxville and Byington (D. A. J.). One specimen collected by S. Marcovitch, Knoxville. Meleoma signoretti Fitch. This species has not previously been reported south of New York. However, there are speci-mens in the M. C. Z. collection from Plummer's Island, Mary-land, and Mountain Lake, Virginia. I collected one specimen at Martel (Loucion County), Tennessee, on August 16, 1934. Chrysopa lineaticornis Fitch. This species has previously been reported from New England, New York, Michigan, and Maryland. It may be synonymous with C. ampla Walk, accord-ing to Banks (1903). Specimens are recorded from Knoxville 'This paper is based in part upon a thesis submitted to the Graduate Com-mittee of the University of Tennessee in partial fulfiUment of the requirements for the degree of Master of Science, August, 1936. I wish to express my appre-ciation to Professor G. M. Bentley and Dr. A. B. Gurney for help in the prep-aration of the manuscript.
