Reference number: RR/16/40

Date: April 1903

Description

Sectional Committee: Zoology

Recommended for publication in Philosophical Transactions, with some minor exceptions. The few illustrations should be reproduced and will require to be more neatly drawn. The section describing the larva could be shortened as it is very long and as the author states these larvae have been recently fully described. The lengthy tables at the end may also be omitted as they seem to him to be laboratory note-book work which may be summarised, and from which conclusions may be drawn.

[Published in Philosophical Transactions B, 1904].
