Collection and Preservation of Insects — A Correction
Collection and Preservation of Insects
In this article, which appeared in the last issue, cotton wool is advocated for storing dry insects (p. 17, line 5 of second paragraph, and p.19, 7 lines from bottom). Dr. Woodward advises that cellulose (surgical) wadding is much preferable because the fibres of cotton wool cling to the appendages with great risk of damage to small or delicate specimens.
