the list of Hymenoptera, and by Mr. E. P. Van Duzee, who arranged the list of Hemiptera, exclusive of the Aphididae and Coccidae. To all of these gentlemen I desire to express my sincere thanks.

Class ARACHNIDA.

The Arachnids of the Toronto district have been almost entirely neglected, and are practically unknown. The only records I have found are those of a few mites taken by Mr. J. B. Tyrrell from birds in 1878-1880 and described by Dr. C. Haller in the " Archiv fur Naturgeschichte " for 1882. The following is a list of these species, revised by Mr. Nathan Banks :

Pteronyssus simplex, Haller. Analges digitatus, Haller. "   passerinus, Linn.

44

tridentulatus, Haller. Megninia aculeatus, Haller.

,,

forcipatus, Haller.

pici-majoris, Buchholz.

Allanalges gracilepinneata, Haller.

Class DIPLOPODA and Class CHILOPODA.

Neither the Millipedes nor the Centipedes of the Toronto district have received any attention from zoologists.
