PSYCHE. CONTRIBUTION TO A LIST OF THE COLEOPTERA OF THE LOWER PENINSULA OF MICHIGAN. BV TYLER TOWXSEND, WASHINGTON, D. C. The coleoptera, embracing i6i spe-cies, which appear in this list were all, with 9 designated exceptions, collected by the writer in the vicinity of Constan-tine, Saint Joseph county, Michigan, and form additions to the species given by Hubbard and Schwarz in their "Con-tribution to a list of the coleoptera of the lower peninsula of Michigan" (Proc. Amer. philos. soc, 187S, v. 17, p. 643-666). The exceptions to the local-ity of Constantine referred to consist of 9 species which have been recorded elsewhere in the lower peninsula but are not included in the H. & S. list ; and the localities of these, whether gen-eral or special, are appended, the au-thorities for the same appearing after them in brackets. For aid in the matter of determina-tions the writer is indebted to Dr. C. V. Riley, Mr. E. A. Schwarz of the De-partment of agriculture, and Mr. M. L. Linell of the National museum ; also to Dr. G. H. Horn of Philadelphia, who kindly determined a portion of the spec-ies several years ago. A very large number of the coleoptera recorded by Hubbard and Schwarz as occurrinsf in the lower peninsula of Michigan have been locally verified by being collected in Saint Joseph county, but are omitted from publication, as this simple addition-al list will prove much more useful. The species mentioned here, as well as all those collected in this locality, now form a part of the National museum collection. In several genera, notably oi staphyl-inidae^ unnamed species have been col-lected, but those belonging to genera represented in the H. & S. list are not inserted, unnamed species being desig-nated only in such genera as have no^ been recorded for the fauna, CiCINDELIDAE.
