Naturevolume 51page294 (1895) | Download Citation



IN NATURE of October 25, 1894 (p. 617), Mr. Scharff mentioned Rhynchodemus terrestris, as stated, in Germany, near Würzburg, by Semper. It would seem that the worm was exceedingly rare. But I found it repeatedly at several points of Saxony and Thuringia, in the mountains and in the plain, in leaved and fir wood, under moss or dead leaves. Sufficient attention would detect it without doubt in many regions. Recently Mr. Ehrmann found several specimens feeding on a dead Arion empiricorum.
