I find I forgot to send you the signature you asked me for, which I now enclose.
In making the additions to the Coleoptera you sent me there are a few points I want cleared up.
1. Where is Rhizophagus to be inserted in my list of new species? And is the authority (Blatch & Hotner1?) (I cannot make out the second name.)
2. Telephorus figuratus var cruachanus. (Chilty) or (Chitty)? [] 3. Heteroceridae -- where does it come? and the authority? (Kuw est?)
I cannot find either of these names in the Naturalist’s Directory or would not trouble you.
Yours very truly Alfred R. Wallace [signature]
1. The reference should be to Blatch & Horner.
