Abstract

A. maculipennis var. labranehiœ is reported to swarm readily in a small cage (1 m. high and 50 cm. wide) if a blue light of intensity about 3 f.c. at a distance of 30 cm. is placed on top of the cage1. No record is known of laboratory mating of this variety without these experimental conditions.
