The Coccidae: Tables for the Identification of the Subfamilies and Some of the More Important Genera and Species Together with Discussions of Their Anatomy and Life History (Classic Reprint) by Alex D Macgillivray (Paperback / softback, 2015)
Excerpt from The Coccidae: Tables for the Identification of the Subfamilies and Some of the More Important Genera and Species Together With Discussions of Their Anatomy and Life History The following materials were originally collected for the use of students in the indentification of coccids. They were based upon printed descriptions and original studies of specimens. There were, when the tables were first prepared, extensive or limited analyses that could be used for this purpose. The first plan was to arrange analyses of all the genera and species of all the subfamilies, but it was soon found that this was impractical. The first draft was prepared about fifteen years ago. This was later greatly extended, modified, revised, and mimeographed for issuance to students.. The mimeographed edition contained the following preface: The tables given herewith are compilations to facilitate the determination of species. In making the compilations, numerous studies were made on the phylogeny of the different subfamilies, genera, and species and the results of the studies thus made are embodied herein. Although compilations from descriptions in the main, yet they contain names t used elsewhere (all those marked MacG.) and hence unpublished. The preparation of mimeographed papers does t constitute publication according to the rules of systematic zoologists. Hence these new names and this manuscript has standing in entomological literature. In justice to the writer, therefore, the names and tables given herewith should be considered the personal property of the writer and are t to be referred to by any person using the tables in any paper that may be published until after the names and facts here given have been printed in such a way by the writer as to be recognized as published by zoologists. This statement is included in order to fix the status of the mimeographed copies in case any of them should find their way into libraries. Besides the preparation of the tables there was accumulated from various sources in addition to my own studies upon specimens, many facts bearing upon the preparation, anatomy, metamorphosis, and habits of coccids. These facts were presented to the students in the form of a course of lectures. Most of the students who have taken this coccid course have been provided with a set of the mimeographed tables.
