THE MOOSE FLY—A NEW HÆMATOBIA

  • W. M. A. Snow (a1)
Abstract

Entomologists will be interested to learn of the occurrence of a near relative of the Horn Fly, HŒmatobia serrata, in the middle of the great cranberry swamps of Northern Minnesota. These vast low areas extend for hundreds of square miles in the vicinity of the Lake of Woods. They are the favored home of the American moose, and the hope of obtaining some specimens of this animal for the museum of the University of Kansas led Professor L. L. Dyche of that institution to traverse these dangerous marshes. Professor Dyche has recently returned after remaining for over three months in the very centre of the swamps, camping upon the occasional sand ridges which cross the region; and to him I am indebted for specimens of a new HŒmatobia.
