PREFACE.

The subject of Vol. IV. of the ' Catalogue of Moths ' is the classifi- cation of the Agrotino', consisting of about 1200 known species and constituting the first of the fifteen subfamilies into which the very large and dominant family Noctuida', witli some ten to twelve thousand described species, is divided.

The family has two main divisions the Trifid group of subfamilies with vein 5 of the hind wing obsolescent, inhabiting chiefiy the temperate regions and with comparatively few species in the tropical and subtropical zones and those chiefly "found in mountainous districts ; and the Quadrifid group with vein 5 of the hind wing fully developed, very largely represented in the torrid zones and with few species in the temperate regions and on mountain- ranges.

The difficulty of dealing with the Trifid group is greatly increased by the great variability of many of the species and by the large numl)er of species described from Central Asia and jNorth America, tlie limits of variation and range of wliich are verv im])erfectly known.

In tlie vVsiatic species Staudinger and Rebel's Catalogue has ])(!en to a large extent followed ; but some of the forms treated in it as varieties will doubtless in the future lie found to be distinct species, and some treated as species will be consifiered to be local

races or varieties, when the distribution of the forms is better known.

In the N. American species Prof. J. B. Smith's most excellent work with his clearly defined genera and species, as published in his Catalogue of N. American Noctuidce and revisions of man)' groups of genera, has been almost entirely followed, its latest form, published in Dr. Harrison G. Dyar's Catalogue of N. American Lepidoptera, having appeared too recently to be available for reference in the present volume. The range and limits of variation of the species from the Western States are, however, very imperfectly known, and of the very numerous described species many only exist as one or two specimens in scattered Collections in the States, so that no specimens were available for examination, and of these many will doubtless turn out to be varieties and not species when long series from numerous localities have been accumulated and carefully examined.

Prof. J. B. Smith has most liberally presented to the Britisli Museum specimens of all the species not before contained in it that he could spare, has lent many others for examination, and has taken great trouble to clear up numerous points of difficulty. Dr. Harrison G. Dyar also has obtained Sir George Hampson the loan of many species for examination from the National Collection at Wasliington, and has had coloured photographs prepared of all the unique tyi)es contained in that Collection, and, in addition, has most kindly written descriptions of all the known larvae of N. American species, published in this Volume under the initials " H. G. D.''

Mr. W. Beutenmuller,of the American Museum of Natural History, New York, has lent specimens of several species contained in that Collection and sent coloured drawings of the other tjpes in it which it was desired to figure. Dr. A. G. Mayer, of the Brooklyn Institute of Arts and Sciences, has sent coloured figures of the types of species from the Neumoegen Collection which is now in that Museum ; these are reproduced on the plates and acknowledged in the text. Prof. A. R. Grote, of Bremen, also has sent a few American species, and "Mr. T. D. A. Cockerell, of East Las Vegas, has sent some from

I'EEFACE.

Jvew Mcxioo. Jlr. H. Wolley Dod, of Calgary, Alboita, has preseiilcd specimens of many desiderata from that district, and Mr, H. H. L} man, of Montreal, has obtained the loan of other Canadian species for examination.

Uf ralsBarctic species, Hcrr 11. Piiiigclcr, of Aachen, has lent many forms from his very fine collection. Prof. Ch. Anrivillius has lent, from the Stockholm Museum, his types from Scandinavia and Greenland and also Wallengren's types from various localities ; and Mr. H. J. Elwcs has lent all that was required from the Christoph Collection in his possession.

The Abbe J. de Joannis has lent several types from S. Europe, Algeria, and Syria ; Mons. Ch. Obcrthur types from S. Europe and Algeria, also many of Guenee's types, almost the whole of the remainder of which have been sent for examination by Prol'. Bouvier, of the Paris Museum ; and Mr. G. T. Pethune-Paker his types from Egypt.

Mons. Paul Dognin, Mr. Herbert Druce, and Mr. W. Schaus have lent their types from Tropical America ; Prof. E. Karsch, of the Berlin Museum, has examined Maassen's types from Colombia and Ecuador described in Stiibel's ' Reise ;" whilst of the species described from Patagonia and Magellan the types described by the late Dr. Carlos Berg have been lent from the Buenos Ayres Museum, Mons. Paul Mabille has lent his types, and those described by Dr. Staudingor have been sent from the Stockholm Museum, and by Prof. K. Kra3pelin from tlie Hamburgli Museum.

Mr. E. Meyrick has sent his types from the Australasian region, and others from Hawaii have been lent by Dr. J. D. Alfken, of Bremen. In addition to tlicse, all those whose assistance has been acknowledged in former volumes have continued to give any help that was asked of them.

In this Volume the plates are reproduced by trichromatic photo- graphy, which is better suited to give the efiect of dull shades '■■rading one into tlie other, such as are found in most Noctaulw,

VUl TREFACE.

whilst chromolit'hograpbj- is better suited for reprodiiciug sharply- defined bright colours : some allowance will doubtless have to be made for the figures of the American species that have been reproduced from coloured photographs ; when this is the case, it will always be found stated in the text.
