The Ptinidae of Economic Importance

  • H. E. Hinton (a1)
Extract

The work which has resulted in the following paper has been carried out in the Department of Entomology of the British Museum (Natural History), at the request of Professor J. W. Munro and on behalf of the Pest Infestation Laboratory of the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research. The critical material used has been mainly that already available in the British Museum, but it has been partly supplemented from Professor Munro's resources.
