PREFACE.

THE object of the present Catalogue is to give a complete List of all the genera and species of Hemiptera Heteroptera known to exist in the collections of European and American Entomologists. The letters a, b, c, &c., after the species, denote the specimens now contained in the British Museum, followed by the habitat and the mode in which each of them was obtained; and the absence of these letters indicates the species which are desiderata, and there-

fore desirable to be procured for the collection. J. KE. GRAY.
