עמוד 210 - ... examined about 25 skulls which belong to Symbos cavifrons. In all of these the exostoses of the horn-core meet across the forehead. If the Grand Rapids skull is the female of S. cavifrons, it is very remarkable that only one female should be discovered among 25 specimens. Among the skulls of S. cavifrons there is a good deal of variation in the size of the cores. It seems very probable that those specimens which have the more feebly developed cores are the females. Inasmuch as in the males of...
עמוד xv - Enock next exhibited a living example of the remarkable aquatic Hymenopteron — Prestwichia aquatica, Lubb., and said it was one of a brood of nine, including 8 $^ and 1 £, that issued on May 1st from a single egg of Pelobius found on September 5th, 1898. He was thus enabled to complete the life-history of this strange creature which was parasitic in the eggs of no less than six different kinds of aquatic insects.
עמוד vii - Great was the care and diligence of our captaine, master, and company to consume these vermine, but the more we laboured to kill them, the more they increased ; so that at the last we could not sleepe for them, but they would eate our flesh, and bite like Mosquitos.
עמוד xvii - M. Hippolyte Lucas, an Honorary Fellow of the Society. He also announced the death of Mr. Samuel Stevens, and in reference thereto said the Society had to deplore the loss of one of its oldest and most highly esteemed Fellows. — Mr. JJ Walker exhibited a specimen of Galerita bicolor, Drury, a North American beetle of the family Carabidœ, said to have been taken many years ago at Doncaster.
עמוד xxvii - Idolum diabolicum, recently published in the Proceedings of the Cambridge Philosophical Society (vol. x. part iii. ). He exhibited the plate, drawn after nature by Mr. Muir, which illustrates the paper, pointing out that no drawing of this kind showing a Mantid in its natural colours simulating the petals of a flower, had hitherto been published. He also exhibited species of Mantodea of various genera, to show the different modifications by means of which insects of this group are made to resemble...
עמוד xxi - Cleoiuis sulciroslris, taken on red sandy soil at Barr's Hill, near Oxford. These examples, he pointed out, were of a reddish tint, harmonising with the colour of the soil on which they were found, and in marked contrast to that of normal grey specimens, some of which, taken at Deal and Reading, he showed for comparison. — The President exhibited specimens of Chersodromia liirta, which were found under sea-weed at Brora in August 1899.— Mr.
עמוד xvii - He also showed larvie and pupie of insects in air-tight glass tubes in which a little cotton wool, sprinkled with formalin, had been placed. The specimens, which had been thus preserved for nearly two years, had lost little of their original colour or brilliancy. — Mr. Gahan exhibited pupa-cases of a Longicorn beetle, Ploccdcrus obesus, Gah., which were remarkable in being composed almost wholly of carbonate of lime.
עמוד xxiv - Description of a new Genus and Species of Cicadidae collected by Dr. Modigliani at Mentawei Island. [Ann.
עמוד xv - MERBIFIELD showed some specimens of Hemaris bombyliformis, Esp., with the scales still covering the central portions of the wings. He said these scales, which are present immediately after the emergence of the insect, but soon become detached, may be rendered adherent by allowing a very weak solution of indiarubber in benzoline to run over the wings. Mr.
עמוד xiii - In reply to remarks from Canon Fowler and others, Dr. Bennett stated that the male beetles use their cephalic horns in fighting with one another, as well as for puncturing the bark of vines in order to bring about a flow of the sap upon which they feed.
