XLI, '30] ENTOMOLOGICAL NEWS 113 The Crambinae in the Brackenridge Clemens Memorial Collection of the Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia 1 (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae). ]>v FRANK HAIMBACH, Academy of Natural Sciences, Philadelphia. This paper deals especially with the North American species, which are represented in our collection by approximately two-thirds of the known species. A list of European species con-tained in our collection is also given. The tropical and neo-tropical species in our collection have not yet been studied by us. We are desirous of building up our collection of Microlepi-doptera, and this paper is the first of a series which will show to other Institutions and specialists just what we have, and from which it will be easy to see what we lack, and we invite correspondence with anyone who can furnish us with any Buries or sub-species which are not represented in our collect-ion, with the view of obtaining such forms either by exchange or otherwise. For specimens of like value we will give paratypes and other typical material in exchange. \Ye are citing in this paper all the types in our collection of forms here dealt with, including the designation of a number of forms of which we have selected single types (lectotypes) from larger series of cotypes. We have also noted all para-types as well as specimens compared with types, and by whom compared. Students of this group, as well as other groups which have been studied by us, are invited to consult our collections, and material sent to us for determination will be promptly returned, retaining only such species which are new to our collection. The sequence of species and nomenclature here used, is that of Barnes and McDunnough's List-, with such changes as were made by Dyar and Heinriclv"' and the elimination of the genera 1 Published by the aid of the Brackenridge Clemens Memorial Fund. ~ Check List of tin-I.epidoptrra of I'.orenl America. iKvatur.
