Bombylliidæ of Palestine

Nature volume 142, page 596 (01 October 1938) | Download Citation



THIS monograph is concerned with the rich fauna of Bombyliidæ found in the relatively small country of Palestine. The bulk of the collection upon which it is based was formed by the author during the Palestine campaigns of 1917-18 in the Great War. Out of 128 species or varieties dealt with in its pages no fewer than 46 are described as new. The work is a model of its kind-admirably clear descriptions, first-rate text-figures and excellent printing. It does credit to all concerned in its production.
