He also showed a specimen, of a species of Jassidae found on the apple. No jassids have before been found on that tree. Mr. S. H. Scudder remarked on the number of subsegments in the larvae of butterflies. Mr. Scudder has applied this to the position of Libythea, which has been variously placed in the Pierinae, Nymphalidae, and Erycininae. Mr. Scudder stated that most of the changes in the larvae of the Lepidoptera, such as moults, etc., occur before ten o’clock in the morning. Mr. S. H. Scudder mentioned the finding of the larva of Oeneis semidea which had formed a very slight silken cocoon for pupating. It is now a pupa. 9 November, I888.--The I4oth meeting of the Club was held at I56 Brattle St. Mr. J. H. Emerton was chosen chairman. Mr. J. H.
