122 PROCEEDINGS ENTOMOLOGICAL SOCIETY of tree cotton and plants of cultivated (similar to Sea Island) cotton. On February 13, 1914, at a scattering collection of houses and a "tienda" (country store) called Bejuquero, Central Chaparra, Oriente, I found in the dooryard of one of the houses, three cotton plants (similar to Sea Island) which had matured quite a number of bolls, but would probably mature very few more, as most of the squares had been punctured by the boll weevil. I collected eight adults, all but two of which were destroyed by "hormiga brava," Solenopsis geminata, a few days later. One cotton plant at Vedado, Central Chaparra, only about five miles from Bejuquero, examined February 20, showed no injury by the weevil and no adults were found. Some cotton plants in a dooryard in the village of Chaparra showed no injury by weevil and I found no adults. No cotton is grown commercially at Chaparra, so far as I was able to learn, although I enquired spe-cifically regarding this point of Mr. Pupo, who has charge of all the sugar cane field inspection work, and I saw no other volunteer cotton plants during my stay of over three w r eeks at Central Chaparra. I also visited the island of Jamaica during March, 1914. I found no boll weevils on any of the varieties of cotton grown at Hope Gardens, Kingston. Haytian cotton was most abundant, although I examined plants of Sea Island, or what was possibly Cuban commercial cotton, and of the ordinary upland variety of the South. I was informed that this was the only cotton on the island of Jamaica. NOTES ON THE CHALCIDOID FAMILY CALLIMOMIDAE. BY J. C. CRAWFORD, U. S. National Museum. Since a new subfamily is described I have given, to locate this as well as two others characterized since the publication of Dr. Ashmead's monograph, a table based on his but much abbre-viated. For additional characteristics his table should be con-sulted. Attention is again called to the fact that the Megastig-minae possess two well developed apical spurs on the hind tibiae. No specimens of either the Pulvilligerinse or the Eutanycorminse have been seen and they are placed in this table solely from the original descriptions.
