aW 2* '^'^ PSYCHE VOL. XXII AUGUST, 191S No. 4 A PRELIMINARY LIST OF THE ANTHOPHILOUS COLEOPTERA OF NEW ENGLAND. By John H. Lovell, Waldoboro, Maine. The following list of the floAver-visiting beetles of New England is based on observations extending over more than ten years. No records are gi^-en of visits that were known to be accidental, or of captures that were made by sweeping. The writer has worked only at Waldoboro, Maine; all other records whether in Maine or Massachusetts should be credited to Mr. C. A. Frost of Fram-ingham, Mass. To avoid needless repetition the following abbre-viations for localities are employed: F. for Framingham, S. for Sherborn, and H. for Hopkinton, Mass.; and W. for Waldo-boro, Maine. In the determination of the more difficult species the authors desire to acknowledge the assistance of Mr. E. A. Schwarz, Col. T. L. Casey, Mr. Charles Dury and Mr. W. S. Fisher; the larger part of the material taken at Waldoboro, Maine, was some years ago kindly identified by Professor H. F. Wickham. Where onh^ the generic names Cornus and Viburnum appear in the list the species may usually be understood to be C. alternifolia and V. nudum. Carabid^. Lehia atriventris Say. Solidago, S.
