COMMENCING with entomology, mention may be made of a paper on new and little-known North American Tipulidæ, by Mr. C. W. Johnson, published in vol. xxxiv., pp. 115–33, of the Proceedings of the Boston Natural History Society. In addition to the description of a number of new species, the paper contains the diagnosis of the new genus Aeshnasoma, proposed for a large tipulid with antennæ of the type of those of Longurio, but with a wing-venation differing from both that genus and Tipula.
