Page 221 - Xanthia aurago and Polia chi have been examined from time to time up to the middle of January ; and so far — with one exception only — nothing but the faintest traces of the future larvae have been detected by microscopic examination of their still fluid contents. At the last examination — about January 14th —the larva of X. aurago was found partially developed, but not to such a degree that it could be extracted from the shell in the larval form. So far, therefore, the guess formed by Dr....
Page 11 - of discoveries have been made, not whilst Entomologists were looking for insects, " but while they were resting discussing some luncheon : for one thing they then " remain stationary in one spot for some little time ; but we fancy the main cause " of discoveries being then made is, that as they are not specially looking on any " plant, any moving thing that enters their field of view more readily attracts
Page 284 - Hampshire (Photimis?) is perfectly continuous, without trace of lines either bright or dark. It extends from a little above Fraunhofer's line C, in the scarlet, to about F in the blue, gradually fading out at the extremities. It...
Page 59 - One imago has already emerged on July 15th. The egg may be called large for the size of the fly, and is nearly globular — though somewhat ovate — in shape, and placed on end ; the shell is glistening, and ribbed, but not deeply, with about thirty longitudinal ribs, and with very shallow transverse reticulations ; in colour, pale greenish-yellow ; afterwards, pale pinkishgrey, speckled with claret-brown.
Page 31 - A primrose by the river's brim A simple primrose was to him, And it was nothing more.')* 1 Keats, Isabella, xxxii.
Page 100 - When the burrow is some six or seven inches in length, a rounded extremity is made to it, in which the female deposits her eggs, and it is for the time abandoned, the parent beetles commencing the construction of a branch. Eggs are laid as early as the beginning of August, and as late as the end of October, and usually, I think, in recently constructed branches of the burrow. I have found single eggs, and groups of two or three, at various points in such a branch, but the proper place seems to be...
Page 60 - ... Throughout its whole larval life this species is very quiet and even sluggish. The pupa is nearly five-eighths of an inch in length, the wing-cases long, the abdomen plump, thickest in the middle, tapering to the tail, and ending in a blunt flat spike ; the back of the thorax is rounded, the head and the eye-pieces prominent. At first the head, thorax, and wing-covers were semitransparent, and of a pinkish-grey tint, the abdomen ochreous, with dark dorsal stripe and other lines, and spiracles...
Page 85 - Subsequently he studied for the legal profession, and was called to the bar, but he very rarely practised.
Page 120 - Syme has had altogether about two hundred larvae, and says " head always red," whilst Stainton, in his notes made from living larvae, says " head pale greenish," with the memorandum that Sepp's figure came nearest to his specimens. The pupa I examined is If -inch long, including the short, curved horn or anal spike, and moderately stout ; the head rounded and narrower than the thorax, the anal extremity a little tapered but otherwise tolerably uniform in bulk ; the wing-cases lie close to the body,...
Page 277 - Eanuoch, to the head of which was adhering a foreign substance, apparently a fungoid growth. Several members dissented from this explanation of the nature of the substance in question, and thought it was probably the pollen-mass of an orchid. Mr. Miiller exhibited a gall on a species of Carex, concerning which he read the following notes : — collected near Thetford, in Norfolk, pointing out to me at the same time some curious galls on its leaves. They may be described as oblong, of the size of...
