Catalogue of the Lepidoptera Phalaenae of the British Museum


WE have again to congratulate the authorities of the British Museum and the indefatigable author on the appearance, within less than a year, of another volume of this highly important descriptive catalogue of moths. It is the sixth which has been devoted to the Noctuidæ, and is the third and last volume dealing with the great subfamily Acronyctinae, of which 385 genera and 2288 species (a large proportion new) are described, and a great number illustrated in the three volumes devoted to the subfamily.
