1918.  To His Honour Sir Frank Stillman Barnard, K.C.M.G.,
Lieutenant-Governor of tlie Province of British Columbia.
May it please Your Honour:
The undersigned respectfully submits the Annual Eeport of the Provincial
Museum of Natural History for the year 1917.
j. d. Maclean,
Provincial Secretary.
Provincial Secretary's Office, Victoria,
March 1th, 1918. Provincial Museum of Natural History,
Victoria, B.C., March 7th, 1918.
The Honourable J. D. MacLean, M.D.,
Provincial Secretary, Victoria, B.C.
Sir,—I have the honour, as Director of the Provincial Museum of Natural
History, to lay before you the Eeport for the year ending December 31st, 1917,
covering the activities of the Museum.
I have the honour to be,
Your obedient servant,
Since the last Annual Report of the Provincial Museum it has been found that it was still
necessary that the strictest economy must be exercised in the maintenance of public institutions,
expending moneys only where it was absolutely necessary, and still keep up to the objects of
the " Provincial Museum Act," viz.:—
(a.)  To secure and preserve specimens illustrating the natural history of the Province:
(b.) To collect anthropological material relating to the aboriginal races of the Province:
(c.)  To obtain information respecting the natural sciences relating particularly to the
natural history of the Province, and to increase and diffuse knowledge regarding
the same.
Although quite a large number of specimens have been added to the collection during the
year, little actual field-work was undertaken, as at the usual time to start field-work it was
not possible to secure the desired assistants.
However, Dr. C. F. Newcombe, who has always been only too willing to assist in building
up the collections of the Provincial Museum, offered his services voluntarily, and accompanied
the Director on a trip to the Bella Coola District in the month of June.
While in Bella Coola special efforts were made to collect the flora of the district, as this
was particularly needed in mapping out the distribution of the different species of plants in
this Province. Quite a large representative collection was secured and prepared, of which
special mention is made in the botanical report. A number of plants were also collected at
Ocean Falls while waiting there for a steamer to Victoria.
Advantage was also taken of the information conveyed to the Director by Mr. W. H.
Gibson, the missionary at Bella Coola, that he thought it would be possible to secure a number
of old ceremonial masks, which had been in possession of the tribe for a great number of years,
from an old Indian chief, " Captain Schooner."
Dr. New-combe and the Director paid several visits to the old reserve to see the old chief,
and after using a great deal of diplomacy and secrecy (which is necessary when dealing with
Indians in such matters, especially with chiefs), these ceremonial masks were secured with
their stories and legends.
In the month of April the Department was fortunate in purchasing from Lieutenant F. C.
Swannell, B.O.L.S., of Victoria, a collection of Indian relics from the Northern Interior of the
Province, from which locality the Museum had very little material; these specimens belonged
to a number of tribes, which, like others, are fast disappearing. Lieutenant Swannell had
collected these specimens several years ago wdiile out with survey parties in the northern
portions of the Province.
Two very valuable collections of anthropological material were donated to the Museum, one
by Mrs. Gertrude A. Croucher, Yale, B.C., in memory of her much respected husband, the late
Rev. Charles Croucher. This collection, numbering 158 specimens, was collected by Rev. Mr.
Croucher many years ago, and has been much coveted by a number of the museums of America;
but the late reverend gentleman was loyal to this Province, and would not allow his collection
to go out of British Columbia, and always said that at his death the specimens were to be
donated to the Provincial Museum at Victoria, so that they would be accessible to students in
the study of the life-history of the aboriginal races of this North-west Coast of America.
The other anthropological collection, numbering eight specimens, was donated by Mrs.
Blanche Dewdney, in memory of her late husband, the Honourable Edgar Dewdney, P.C.,
ex-Lieutenant-Governor of the North-west Territory and ex-Lieutenant-Governor of the Province
of British Columbia. In this collection will be found a valuable set of bone gambling-dice, with
sticks as counters, used by the Kootenay Indians. Specimens similar to these are seldom seen
in any collection of anthropology.
Early in the month of October, Professor John Macoun, F.R.S.C, Naturalist to the
Geological Survey of Canada, Ottawa, who now resides at Sidney, B.C., received permission
from the Director of the Geological Survey, Mr. R. G. McConnell, to present to the Provin- O 6 Provincial Museum Eeport. 1918
cial Museum his fine collection of the Vancouver Island flora, numbering approximately 900
specimens, all named and classified. The Director undertook to transfer these specimens
personally from Sidney to Victoria, so that they would be handled with the greatest care.
These specimens have now been deposited in the Herbarium under the supervision of Mr.
W. R. Carter, and are now available for reference to those who are interested in the study
of botany.
It will be seen in the report on botany that special work has been carried out in this
particular branch during the past year, with the assistance of several volunteer collectors, who
have helped materially to make the Herbarium the most representative collection in the Province.
The exhibition cases of British Columbia butterflies on the second floor of the Museum have
been entirely rearranged by Mr. E. H. Blackmore, of this city, in accordance with the new
Check-list bf the Lepidoptera of Boreal America, issued by Messrs. Barnes and McDunnough,
of Decatur, 111., in February, 1917. This list is recognized as the standard authority by the
Victoria Memorial Museum at Ottawa, and also by the majority of the principal museums in
the United States.
The nomenclature has undergone radical changes and the sequence of genera is entirely
different to that of Dr. Dyar's catalogue of ' North America Lepidoptera, published in 1902,
which has hitherto been followed. The style of labelling has been altered, the names being
typewritten in two colours, the generic and specific names in purple and the author's name in
red, thus ensuring greater legibility than was formerly the case in the old hand-written labels.
The labels are also placed on the supporting pin at the same height as the insect, thereby
rendering them more easily readable to the general public. It is hoped to be able to continue
this work on the Museum collection of moths during the coming year.
It is very gratifying to note that a number of teachers, both in public and private schools,
are bringing their classes to the Museum in connection with their nature-studies, which I am
sure has been greatly appreciated by the scholars, and without doubt has been a great benefit
to them individually, judging from the manner in which they have gone around the exhibition
halls taking notes. The Director or one of the staff is always on hand to give the young folk
all the information possible.
The number of visitors that have signed the register in the entrance hall during the year
1917 was 35,672; this does not give the number of visitors by any means, as the school-children
are not asked to register their names, neither are a large number of Orientals and others.
The Director has had a number of requests from other museums, societies, and persons
who are interested in the several branches of natural sciences for the loan of specimens for
comparison, which has always been willingly granted whenever possible.
By permission of the Honourable Provincial Secretary, the annual meeting of the British
Columbia Entomological Society w7as held in the Botanical Room in the Provincial Museum,
when a number of very interesting papers were read by members on systematic and economic
The Honourable Minister of this Department also gave the Director permission to have
the meetings of the Natural History Society held in the Museum on evenings when subjects
are being discussed on natural-history specimens that are represented in the collections; this
arrangement is most satisfactory, as it saves loaning specimens, and I think is of more interest
to members and has been greatly appreciated by the society.
The Director wishes to extend grateful thanks to the following persons that have assisted
with the identifications in their respective branches of biology:—
Identification of Botanical Specimens.—Professor J. Macoun, Sidney, B.C.; J. M. Macoun,
C.M.G., Chief of Biological Department, Ottawa; C. F. New7combe, M.D., Victoria; and Professor J. K. Henry, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, B.C.
Identifications in Entomology.—Doctors Barnes and McDunnough, Decatur, 111.; Professor
E. M. Walker, University of Toronto, Ont.; L. W. Swett, Lexington, Mass.; R. S. Sherman,
Vancouver, B.C.; and E. H. Blackmore, Victoria, B.C.
Thanks are also extended to a number of persons who have donated specimens.
Botanical specimens have been received from the following: Professor J. Macoun, Sidney;
W. B. Anderson, Victoria; Dr. C. F. New7combe, Victoria; W. R. Carter, Alberni; W. A.
Newcombe, Victoria;   J. R. Anderson, Victoria;   and Professor J. K. Henry, Vancouver. 8 Geo. 5 Provincial Museum Eeport. O 7
Notes on bird observations have been received from the following: J. E. Kelso, M.D., and
W. B. Johnson, Lower Arrow Lakes; A. H. Palmer, New Westminster; J. A. Munro, Okanagan
Landing;  and others.
(This island is known as Indian Reserve No. 9, Saanich Tribe, and is situated in Haro
Strait about twenty miles north-east of Victoria.)
Owing to certain conditions it was not deemed advisable to place a warden on this island
during the last nesting season, and it was expected that after this island had been guarded so
closely for the two previous seasons, and persons warned to keep away, no person would go there
to molest the gulls, guillemots, puffins, and cormorants that make this island their nesting ground.
But in a report that was sent to me by Mr. Leonard S. Higgs, who lives on one of the
neighbouring islands, it seems imperative that a guard must be maintained on Bare Island
during the nesting season and continued indefinitely. The following is a quotation from his
" As perhaps you know, I take a deep interest in the few sea-bird breeding-places in the
neighbourhood, and especially in that on Bare Island, which I have visited practically every
summer for twenty-five years.
" The policy of the Government in placing a warden on Bare Island for a couple of months
during the breeding-season was admirable, and was responsible for raising the number of breeding pairs to at least double what it was two or three years ago. But it is a policy which
should be continued indefinitely.
" My experience this summer has been as follows: I visited the island early in June, when
the nests were just made, and contained either one or two eggs. I counted over 100 eggs in an
area perhaps equal to one-thirtieth of the breeding-ground, taking an average of one egg and
a half to each nest at that time. When the full hatches should have been laid, the number of
eggs available for hatching should have been 6,000. I called again after an interval of ten
days, and should have had difficulty in finding 100 eggs upon the entire island, practically every
nest being empty.    No bird, however prolific, can stand such treatment."
Accessions, 1917.
By Purchase from Lieutenant F. C. Swannell (Nos. 2912-296/f).
1. Athabascan. From the Northern Interior of British Columbia. This portion of the
collection consists of 100 specimens which were acquired by Lieutenant Swannell at the following localities: Lac la Hache, Chestalla Lake, Fraser Lake, Stuart Lake, Stella Lake, and the
Babine River country. It consists principally of articles of stone, such as arrow and spear
points, knives, chisels, skin-scrapers, hammers, pipes, and a polished mirror. There are also
snow-shoes, bone skin-scrapers, adzes, fish-spears, knives with iron blades, and birch-bark
2. Salishan. From Lillooet seventeen specimens include a two-handed stone pile-driver of
the rare type, illustrated in last year's report. There are also a few specimens from the Lower
Fraser River, Victoria, and the Bella Coola region belonging to this stock.
Rev. C. Croucher Collection, mostly from Yale, B.C. (Nos. 2979-3137).
2996 to 2999 and 3137. A remarkable set of carved stone dishes. Of these, No. 2996 is of
soapstone in a very fine state of preservation. Like Nos. 2998 and 3000, it represents a seated
human figure. No. 2997 is of bird form, and 2999 closely resembles a turtle. No. 3137 is a very
large, crudely carved object of animal form-.
There are also four small figures of human shape, and a knife-handle of horn, boldly carved
to represent certain ancestors of its Indian maker.
The rest of the collection includes stone dishes (some of cigar-holder shape), a stone labret,
and a great number of stone chisels, hammers, arrow-points, etc.
Collection presented by Mrs. Dewdney on behalf of the late Edgar Dewdney (Nos. 2901, to 2911).
2904. Salish.   Medicine-man's head-dress of two paws of grizzly bear with claws. O 8 Provincial Museum Eeport. 1918
2905. Gambling set of four long polished bone, marked with diagonal and circular lines.
Set of twelve sticks for counting.    Kootenay.
2906. Salish.    Spindle-whorl of big maple, carved to show two thunder-birds.

lanyard of twisted gut.    Lower Fraser.
2910. Salish.    Stone chisel.    Lower Fraser.
2911. Salish. Spoon of mountain-goat horn, the carved handle riveted to bowl; raven below
holding inverted man.
Bella Coola Collection.
From Chief Schooner were purchased the following ceremonial objects:—
1. Nos. 2965 to 2973. Masks used at potlatches and dances and representing crests and
legends of the chief's clan.
2965. Eagle mask (TsElkt).
2971. Loon Mask (Squsin).   This crest was also observed in the graveyard.
2972. Setting-sun mask (Nothokomai). This is now the property of Schooner's son. It is
shown at potlatches over a screen at the back of the dance-house, the wearer himself being out
of sight.
2973. Eagle mask. This is one of the chief's principal family crests, and is shown at the
same time as—
2969. Raven mask (Qoaxmanikwulla).
2966. Killer-whale mask (Suit). A large mask in three parts which represent the head
(enq), the dorsal fins (qutleik), and the tail (sliamont). The story relating how this crest
came into the chief's family is, in part, as follows:—
In far-distant days Schooner's ancestors lived in a large chief's house in the sky. The first
of them of whom there is still any tradition was named Tamaltsen. This man when he danced
used two masks, the eagle and the killer-whale. These were obtained by him at an old village
named NuskElste, a place half-way up the River TEintz, which runs past Bella Coola. Of this
place it is said that at one time the sea rose so high that it filled up all the streams and
reached the tops of the mountains to the west of Bella Coola, driving out all the natives from
their houses until they could climb no higher. Just in time to save them from extermination
a huge killer-whale swam close up to their last place of refuge on the mountain-tops and most
of the people were able to climb inside and so were saved. The whale was as large as a big
house and here all were cared for until the waters subsided. When land was seen once more
the raven flew up and down croaking joyfully that so many people had escaped from drowning.
2967. 296S.    Small masks representing two of the people who were saved.
2. Nos. 2974 to 2976. Masks used in the cannibal winter dance. These are all bird masks
with long narrow beaks differing slightly in certain details, and all are called Hauhau, the
Bella Coola form of the Kwakiutl Bohok. These are only parts of a complete set belonging to
the winter dance, but supplement specimens purchased at Bella Coola some years ago. It was
then found impossible to obtain from any one owner a perfect series such as belong to several
Kwakiutl chiefs. Chief Schooner's consent had to be obtained in every instance, and he also
promptly annexed a large part of the purchase-money, without opposition from the seller. It
was stated that outlying parts of the set used in the cannibal dance were held by different
individuals belonging to the society and were liable to be called for.
Schooner said that his family came into possession of the cannibal dance in early days.
One of his ancestors was walking along the beach near Bella Coola when suddenly there
appeared rising out of the sea a large chief's house. Some people came to the door and
invited him to go inside. Here he saw, sitting at the far end of the house, a chief whose
name was Qomoqoya, who was wearing a ceremonial hat of great size. The visitor at once
produced a valuable " copper " and presented it to Qomoqoya.
Two of the ancestor's brothers had been made prisoners and taken to this house, but soon
after were drowned. For this reason the use of the cannibal masks was explained to him and
the right to use them was granted.  PLATE  I.

The house was named Nuskoahltnaixsta. Certain important chiefs in it were Smaiyakila,
the head; SixsEkilaixla was a brother of the last; Atlkuntan and Nunatsonajen were also big
chiefs and rulers.    These were the spirits who presided over the cannibal dance.
2977. Storage-box (Pilkw-a).    This is a Bella Bella box.
2978. Spindle-whorl.    Bella Coola.
During the early part of the year a collection of bird-skins numbering 68 and mammal-skins
numbering 154 were purchased from Mr. J. A. Munro, of Okanagan Landing; these skins are
prepared in a most satisfactory manner, a number of them being collected in the Nicola District,
from which the Department had very few specimens, thus making them very valuable in mapping
out the distribution of species.
The Provincial Game Warden at Vancouver sent to the Museum two skins of wapiti, which
had died while being transferred from the Colony Farm to be turned out in the Lillooet District.
These animals were unfortunately badly skinned—in fact, ruined entirely for mounting purposes.
The raccoon group (Procyon lotor) in a wild crab-apple tree, which have been mounted for
a great number of years and had become very much worn and faded, have been replaced by
three good specimens, presented by Mr. J. N. Evans, Duncan, B.C.
The Museum was also fortunate in having a (albino) squirrel, "Vancouver Island
Chickaree" (Sciurus hudsonius vancouvcrensis), presented by Mr. W. Fairall, which he shot
on the Malahat, west side of Saanich Inlet, September 16th, 1917.
By E. H. Blackmore. '
The weather conditions of the past season were very similar to those of the previous year,
a very wet spring and early summer being followed by a dry hot spell which extended until
late in September.
Throughout the valley of the Lower Fraser, the Coast District, and Vancouver Island the
heavy rains of the early spring were continued on and off until the end of June. To those
insects that in the pupal state pass the winter underground an abnormally heavy rainfall does
a great deal of damage, causing many of the pupae to rot, thereby reducing the number of
individuals of those species. It also delays the appearance of many other species which, when
they do emerge, are quickly killed off by the cold wet -weather. On account of these conditions
collecting in the early part of the season was exceedingly poor.
The late summer and early fall were very dry and warm, the sunny days being practically
continuous for nearly three months. This continued hot weather brought out in greater numbers
species which as a rule are rather scarce.
There was a rather severe outbreak of cutworms in the Victoria and Vancouver Districts
during the month of May and the early part of June. A great deal of damage was done to
small gardens and cultivated lots; in some instances whole beds of garden produce were completely devastated. The chief offenders were the dingy cutworm (Feltia ducens Walk.), the
glassy cutworm (Sideria devastator Brace), and the caterpillars of Euxoa messoria Grote, Euxoa
excellent Grote, and Feltia Vancouverensis Grote. This latter species has not hitherto been
considered of much economic importance, but I am convinced that it does as much damage as
any of the others, with the possible exception of Sideria devastator.
During September a particularly bad infestation of shade and ornamental trees occurred in
Victoria. This was caused by the larva; of an undetermined species (Tenthredo sp.) of sawfly.
In normal years they confine their ravages to the Lombardy poplar (Populus dilatata Alt.),
wdiich is their natural food-plant, but this year they occurred in such countless numbers that
they attacked everything in sight, even invading houses and office buildings. The larva? when
full grown measure from 1% to 1% inches in length and are of a brilliant yellow colour marked
with round black spots on each segment. They are generally mistaken for the caterpillars of
moths or butterflies, but they can always be distingushed by the fact that they have from six
to eight pairs of prolegs; the false legs situated behind the three pairs of genuine legs near
the front end of the body, while lepidopterons larva? never have more than five pairs. O 10 Provincial Museum Eeport. 1918
Lower Fraser Valley District.
At the request of the Director I made a three-weeks' collecting trip through this district,
starting on June 11 th and returning July 2nd. Taking into consideration the remarkable scarcity
of insects in general up to the end of June, and also the number of wet days that occurred, the
total amount of insects taken was very satisfactory; out of a total of nineteen days' actual
collecting, there were six days of heavy rain, three days dull and cloudy, and ten days of bright
On the rainy days, beating for Geometridse and searching for Coleoptera was undertaken in
the daytime, and at night collecting noetuids by " light" was successful. It was noticeable that
more moths came to " light" on the wet nights than on those nights which had been preceded
by a bright sunny day.
The localities visited were Vancouver, Cloverdale, and Rosedale. The Vancouver District
was not at all productive, although trips were made to all the chief collecting-grounds, including Cauldfield (nine miles west of North Vancouver, on the P.G.E.), the famous Lynn Valley,
Stanley Park, and South Vancouver, including the Eburne District.
Three days were spent at Cloverdale, twenty-five miles east of Vancouver, where some good
material was taken, including some very interesting geometers taken while " dusking." The
best district of all from a collecting point of view was certainly at Rosedale, where some
valuable material w7as taken, some of it new to British Columbia.
Rosedale is situated at the apex of the valley, being about eighty miles from Vancouver,
and is on the south side of the Fraser River (nearly opposite to Agassiz, at w7hich place the fine
Experimental Farm belonging to the Dominion Government is situated).    It is heavily timbered
on the north side, but skidways belonging to the shingle-mills in operation there furnished a
% convenient means of getting into the heart of the woods.
Mount Cheam, rising to a height of 6,925 feet, is situated about two miles away and is a
magnificent sight when the rays of the setting sun strike its rugged peaks. An ascent of this
mountain was contemplated, as some very desirable alpine species are known to occur there, but
owing to the great depth of snow on the trails this w7as found to be impossible; in some places
the snow was estimated as being from 30 to 40 feet in depth; three fresh falls of snow occurred
during the nine days spent there. I found out from some of the inhabitants that the ascent to
the top cannot be undertaken until the last week in July on account of the snow, and then it is
only possible for about three or four weeks.
The total number of insects taken on the trip w7as 883, made up as follows : Lepidoptera,
589; Coleoptera, 72; Hymenoptera, 105; Diptera, 102; and Odonata, 15. The Lepidoptera were
comprised of the following: Butterflies, 55; moths (other than geometers), 170; geometers,
272 ;  and Microlepidoptera, 92.
The nomenclature used is that contained in Messrs. Barnes and McDunnough's Check-list of
Lepidoptera of Boreal America, which has been adopted by the Museum, and which will be
followed in all future Museum publications.
The scarcity of butterflies seen on the trip was very noticeable, a short series of Pontia
napi marginalis Scud, being taken, while Parnassius clodius claudianus Stich. was captured
at North Vancouver and at Rosedale. These were the only two species worthy of mention.
Amongst the noetuids a nice series of both Acronycla hesperida Sm. and A. oblinata A. & S.
were taken, most of them being newly emerged. Three specimens of that very desirable species
Autographa nichollce Hamp. were taken at " light " at Rosedale. Other species of interest were:
Polia lubens glaucopis Hamp; Luperina passer Gue.; and Hyppa xylinoides Gue. In the subfamily Hypeninw a number of specimens were taken, including a good series each of Chylolita
morbidalis Gue. and Hypena humuli Harr. Three female specimens of Bomolocha palparia
Walk, were captured at Rosedale; these are, to my knowledge, the first of this sex recorded
for British Columbia, although I took a male specimen at Goldstream on June 16th, 1915; this
w7as figured in the Report of the Provincial Museum, 1916, Plate VII.
A fine male specimen of Bomolocha abalienalis Walk, was taken at Rosedale on June 25th.
This has never been recorded previously from British Columbia, and is an inhabitant of the
Eastern and Middle States.
A nice collection of Geometridse was made, including a single specimen of Hydrelia albifera
Walk., at Rosedale on June 26th; this is the first authentic record of this species west of Kaslo. 8 Geo. 5 Provincial Museum Eeport. O 11
Other desirable species taken at various localities in the valley were: Cosymbia lumenaria
Hbn.; Calocalpe undulata Linn.; Dysstroma occidentata mutata Taylor; Xanthorhce designata
emendata Pears; Eupliyia multiferata Walk.; Epirrhce, alternata Mull.; Enpithecia casloata
Dyar;  E. castigata Hub.;  and Metanema quercivoraria Gue.
nAmongst the micros two of particular interest are Pyrausta ochosalis Dyar, taken at
Cloverdale  (only previous record from Kaslo), and P. funebris Strom., captured at Rosedale.
The Coleoptera and Hymenoptera have not been worked over as yet, but some work has
been done on the Diptera, many of which, however, await further determination.
Odonata (Dragon-flies).
A small collection of about forty specimens were recently submitted to Dr. E. M. Walker,
of Toronto, for identification. They comprised seventeen species, three of which, it is pleasing
to note, are species that have not previously been recorded from British Columbia, viz.:—
Ccenagrion resolutum Hagen. One female taken by W. A. Newcombe at Chilcotin on June
25th, 1915.
Leucorrhinia intacta Hagen. Two males taken by J. A. Munro at Okanagan Landing on
July 6th, 1916, and one male taken by W. R. Carter at Alberni on July 29th, 1915.
Leucorrhinia borealis Hagen. One male taken by W. A. Newcombe at Chilcotin on June
22nd, 191.5.
Hereunder w7e publish a list of the remaining fourteen species, with their localities, and
hope at some future date to give a complete list of the Odonata of British Columbia, an order
which has hitherto been somewhat neglected:—
Enallagma calverti Morse.    Vancouver (E. H. Blackmore).
Enallagma cyathigerum Charp.    Chilcotin (W. A. Newcombe);   Cranbrook  (C. Garrett).

Leucorrhinia hudsonica Selys.    Vancouver (Blackmore) ;   Cranbrook  (Garrett).
Rake and Uncommon Insects taken in British Columbia during 1917.
Under this heading we propose to give a list of the rare and uncommon insects which have
been taken during the past season at various localities in the Province of which we have any
knowledge. Properly authenticated records of these insects from any collection in the Province
will be gladly welcomed. It is hoped by this means to get a better knowledge of the distribution
and geographical range of our lesser-known species, which in some instances may eventually
prove of great economic value.
Victoria.—During the past season the writer, with the assistance of Mr. Edward Cooke and
Mr. Arthur Robinson, of this city, has -been fortunate in taking many desirable species of noetuids
and geometrlds.
From a pupa found in the city park I bred a splendid female specimen of Smerinthus cerisyi
opthalmicus form pallidulus Edw. This is a very rare form and is new to British Columbia.
The ground colour is of a beautiful pale fawn, in contradistinction to the dark olive-brown
colour of typical opthalmicus. Amongst the noetuids taken were the following uncommon
species: Euxoa intrita reuda Streck; E. terrena Sm. (very rare); E. divergens Walk.; E.
atrifera (rare); Matuta apposita Grt.; Eriopyga infidelis Dyar; Eurotype contadinaSin.;
Eumichtis loda Streck; Septis antennata purpurissata B. & McD. (rare); Trachea cinefacta
Grt; Vfcus electra, Sm.; Luperina passer Gue. (rare); and Autographa ampla Walk. This
latter is the first record from Victoria that I know of, although it has previously been taken at
Duncan and Wellington. O 12 Provincial Museum Eeport. 1918
Several interesting specimens were taken amongst the Geometrida?, including two new to
the Province—viz., Vemtsia duodecemlineata Pack, and Eupithecia borealis Hist. The former
was taken at rest on an electric-light pole by the writer in April. It is closely allied to V.
pearsalli Dyar (which is one of our commonest spring species), but can be distinguished by its
generally darker colour and the wavy extra-discal line on the forewlngs. The latter was taken
at " light" by Mr, A. Robinson on June 27th, and another specimen was taken by Mr. W. Downes
at Oak Bay on the 30th of the same month. This species was originally described from
The other geometers of more than passing interest were: Lobophora nivigerata Walk.; this
has been an exceedingly rare species until this year, when we had the good fortune to take half
a dozen specimens; Cosymbria dataria Hist.; Calocalpe undulata Linn.; Nematocampa limbata
Haw. As recorded in last year's Annual Report, this pretty little geometer had not been recorded
from this district for twelve years until 1916, when two specimens were captured at "light."
This season a special look-out was kept, with the result that a nice series of eleven specimens
were taken. It is evidently very local. Metanema inatomaria Gue.; a single specimen was
taken at " light" in the same locality as the one taken last year. Pero occidentalis Hulst.;
two males were taken on June 4th and 7th respectively. This is a very interesting record, as
it is rather a rare species and not previously known west of Penticton.
We have specimens from the latter locality and also from Rossland. The Azelina occidentalis Hulst., given as " generally distributed" in the 1906 Check-list of British Columbia
Lepidoptera, is an error, as the species there referred to is Pcro giganteus Grossb., which has
a known range from Vancouver Island to Kaslo. The chief determining character of occidentalis
is the dentate antenna? of the male; in the other three species of Pero which occur in British
Columbia the antennse are filiform in both sexes.
Mr. W. B. A-iiderson, Inspector of Indian Orchards, took a single specimen of Neptyia
phantasmaria Streck in September. This is also an interesting record, as this, together with
one taken by the writer in September, 1915, constitutes the only known records of this species
in Victoria.
The same collector also took a specimen of Hwmorrhagia diffinis rubens Hy. Edw. in his
garden at Oak Bay in September. This species is single-brooded and flies about the first w-eek
in May; the most probable explanation is that the cocoon, which is generally spun up under
fallen leaves, was lying in an exposed place subject to the direct rays of the sun, and consequently brought to maturity at the end of the summer instead of lying dormant until the
following May.
The following noetuids, collected by Mr. W. Downes, of Oak Bay, are worthy of mention:
Euxoa catenula Grt. (new to this district) ; E. esta Sm. (rare) ; Polia lubens glaucopis
Hamp.; Septis multicolor Dyar (rather rare) ; Trachea finitima cerivana Sm.; and Autographa
celsa Hy. Edw. He also took a short series of Eupithecia obumbrata Taylor on Mount Tolmie
in May. This is the first record of this species in Victoria. It is evidently a mountain form,
as it has been taken by Mr. Day on Mount Tzouhalem, near Duncan, and also on the mountains
at Goldstream.
I nearly forgot to mention that a school-boy captured a specimen of Pseudohazis eglanterina
Bdv. (the sheep-moth) near the Ross Bay Cemetery. This is the first record of this species
that we have from Victoria;  it occurs sparingly at Goldstream, Shawnigan, and Duncan.
Goldstream,—On one of the writer's occasional trips to this locality a number of noctuid
moths were taken after dark feeding on a large patch of cultivated sunflowers, amongst which
were specimens of Euxoa esta (rare) ; E. tessellata tesselloides Grt.; and Rhynchagrotis rufi-
pectus Morr. On another occasion a beautiful specimen in perfect condition of Cleora excelsaria
Streck was taken. This is the first capture of this exceedingly rare geometer that has been
recorded for about thirteen years. It was taken at rest on a fire-blackened tree-trunk early on
the morning of June 4th. An extensive search for further specimens was made, but no others
were seen.
A nice series of Perizoma costiguttata Hulst. w7as obtained on the 3rd and 4th of the same
month; this species is evidently very local in its habits.
Duncan.—Mr. G. O. Day, of Quaniichan Lake, has succeeded in breeding a short series of
that uncommon deltoid Bomolocha toreuta Grt.    The larva? were found feeding on dogwood in 8 Geo. 5 Provincial Museum Eeport. 0 13
August of 1916, and the adults emerged at the end of the following May.    This is a valuable
record, as the knowledge of the food-plants of a great many of our species is very limited.
It is also interesting to note that Mr. Day also took a line specimen of Venusia obsoleta
Swett on April 18th. This species was described last year from specimens found in the Harvey
and the Museum collections taken in 1908, and was figured in the Provincial Museum Report for
1916 on Plate VIII.
Mr. A. W. Hanham, also of Quamichan Lake, took a beautiful geometer on June 20th, which
turned out to be Stamnoctenis morrisata Hulst, a species which was described from Arizona and
is entirely new7 to our fauna.
Cumberland.—A few specimens of Cercyonsis alope ariane Bdv. were taken in this district
in July. This is noteworthy as no species of this genus has ever been recorded from Vancouver
Island before. Boopis Behr., a form of ariane with fewer spots on the under-side, occurs in the
Interior from Lillooet to Cranbrook.
Savary Island.—Mr. R. S. Sherman, of Vancouver, who spends his annual vacation on this
island, reports that he has seen specimens of Danaus archippus Fabr. (the mllkw7eed butterfly)
there every year for several years, and that this year he found several patches of milkweed
growing there. As this is the natural food-plant of archippus, the probabilities are that it breeds
on this island, but this fact will have to be proved before it can be accepted as such. This
butterfly has a cosmopolitan range, but has not been known to breed in British Columbia,
although occasional specimens have been taken in various parts of the Province. He also
mentions that Epargyreus tityrus Fabr. (the large silver-spotted skipper) was very common
in July.    It has been previously recorded from Vancouver and doubtfully from Glacier.
Cloverdale.—Mr. Bevan L. Hugh, who collected a number of geometers during the past
season, captured a specimen of Philobia ulsterata Pearson. This is an exceedingly rare
geometer, and is the first taken to my knowledge since 1908, when the late Mr. A. H. Bush
took one in Vancouver. Amongst others taken by the same collector was a nice series of
Spargania magnoliata pemotata Hulst. and a fine specimen of Selenia alcipliearia ornata B.
& McD.
Quesnel Forks.—While engaged on business connected with the Provincial Fisheries Department in this district in late August and September, Mr. W. A. Newcombe, of Victoria, collected
a few insects which proved of great interest, as we had not received any material from this
particular district previously. The butterflies taken were Phyciodes cam.pestris Behr.; Polygonid
progne. Cram.;  and Aglais J.-album Bdv. & LeCon.
A short series of Hypoprepia miniata Kby. (the scarlet-winged lichen-moth) was obtained;
this has previously been recorded from Kaslo. The Noctuida? comprised Euxoa mimallonis
gagates Grt.; Qraptolitha georgii Grt.; Catocala briseis Edw. (previously recorded from Kaslo) ;
Autographa rectangula Kirby; and Scoliopteryx libatrix Linn. The geometers proved scarce,
only three species being taken, viz.: Lygris xylina Hulst; Hydriomena f areata Thun; and
Ceratodalia gueneata Pack.
Lillooet,—In the beginning of August Mr. A. W. A. Phair took two or three specimens of
a bright coppery-red butterfly which we identified as Heodes cupreus Edw. It was taken at
Mount McLean at an altitude of 7,000 feet, and is a new record for British Columbia. It is
very closely allied to iff. snoicl Edw., which also occurs in British Columbia, but is very rarely
taken; cupreus is brighter in colour and more heavily spotted than snowi. He has kindly
donated a pair for the Museum collection.
Mr. Phair, on a recent visit to Victoria, brought with him a large amount of material for
identification; as many of the noetuids were new to us, w7e sent them to Dr. J. McDunnough
for determination, with the result that many of them proved new to British Columbia, and
materially add to the known lepidopterous fauna of this Province.
The following is a list of those new to British Columbia: Euxoa cinereopallida Sm.;
Agrotis piscipellis Grt.; Rynchagrotis vittifrons Grt.; Lasionycta rainieri Sm.; Polia nugatis
Sm.; Polia farnhami Grt.; Tholera americana Sm.; and Cerapoda oblita Grt. Amongst the
others -were some very desirable species, the following being of special interest as extending our
knowledge of their known range ; Euxoa satiens Sm.; E. murdocki Sm.; Lasiestra phoca luteola
Sm.;  and Pseudanarta flava Grt. O 11 Provincial Museum Eeport. 1918
New British Columbia Lepidoptera.
Under this heading we publish an annotated list of those new species and varieties which
have been described during the past season. We believe that this list will be of value to those
entomologists in the Province who are unable to keep in touch with all the current literature
on the subject, but who are desirous of keeping their collections and check-lists up te date in
nomenclature and scientific arrangement.
Glaucopsyche lygdamus Columbia Skin. This new race of lygdamus was described by Dr.
Henry Skinner in the Ent. News for May, 1917. The type and paratypes are from Port Columbia,
Wash. Amongst other localities mentioned for this species is Corfield, Vancouver. We presume
this is meant for Corfield, near Duncan, on Vancouver Island. This pretty blue butterfly is
fairly common all over the Island about May, and has been going under the name of G. lygdamus
behrii Edw7. (vide Report, Provincial Museum, 1916). The true behrii is a California race of
lygdamus, with San Francisco as its probable nimotypical locality; Columbia differs from
behrii in being of a much deeper shade of blue and the spots on the under-side of the wings
being larger.
In Vol. III., No. 4, Cont. Lept. No. Anier., March, 1917, Messrs. Barnes and McDunnough
describe a number of new species and varieties of Geometridna, amongst which are eight new
to British Columbia. As these " Contributions " were published subsequent to the issuance of
their new check-list, the following additions must be made to it:—
Trichodesia albovittata tenuifasciaia B. & McD. This form was described from Spirit Lake,
Idaho. In the Barnes collection there were specimens from Wellington, B.C., and the writer
has a specimen taken -by Mr. W. H. Danby at Ymir in 1900. In this variety the white band
of primaries is much narrower, being only 1 mm. in width.
Thera georgii benesignata B. & McD. This racial name has been given to the Vancouver
Island form on account of its larger size, paler colour, and the strong contrast between the
brown median and basal areas and the ground colour. Typical georgii is now restricted to
the Nevada species. The types of benesignata are from Wellington and the paratypes from
Mesoleuca gratulala latialbata B. & McD. Described from three specimens from Plumas
County, Cal. In this form the median white band is strongly constricted centrally below the
cell, due to an outward bulge in the dark basal area and a strong inward bend below vein 4
of the outer dark area. I have a specimen from Kaslo which Dr. McDunnough considers this
form, although the basal line is not quite typical.
Epirrhw plebeculata vivida B. & McD. This is the species hitherto known as Rheumaptera
rubrosuffusata Pack., which occurs commonly throughout the Island and Lower Mainland.
Rubrosuffusata has been found to be a synonym of plebeculata, which was described by Guenee,
from California, and the racial name of vivida is proposed for our Vancouvef Island form on
account of the coloration being much better defined.
In describing a new species, Phasiane ponderosa, Messrs. Barnes and McDunnough mention
a variety of it under the form name of demaculata, in which the cross-lines tend to become
obsolescent, especially in the females. The types are from Calgary, Alta., but one of the female
paratypes is from Field, B.C. We have two rather worn females, one from Atlin, taken by E. M.
Anderson, and one from Chilcotin, taken by W. A. Newcombe, so that although uncommon it is
widely distributed.
Itame plumosata B. & McD. This pretty yellow and brown geometer was described from
specimens taken in various localities in Arizona and Utah. We have a male specimen from
Mount McLean near Lillooet, taken in July, 1916, by E. M. Anderson. It is rather remarkable
that this species should turn up here, as it is a long way from its nimotypical locality; it is
apparently a high altitude species and may turn up on any of the high mountains in the intervening country.
Cleora satisfacta B. & McD. Described from one male and one female taken at Kaslo.
This is closer in general habitus to cxcelsaria Streck and albescens Hulst..than to any other
Cleora that occurs in the Province.
Mthaloptera anticarla fumata B. & McD. This is the insect from Kaslo that has been
previously known as /E. intextala Walk. Dr. McDunnough states that anticaria should be used
for the common Eastern species instead of intextata, and proposes the name of fumata for the  PLATE  II.

Kaslo race, which is more evenly suffused with smoky brown and with the lines more or less
obsolescent. The types are six males from Kaslo, presumably taken by Mr. J. W. Cockle. This
locality is the only one from which we have any record of this species.
In addition to the foregoing, it is as well to note that Messrs. Barnes and McDunnough have
given the study of Sicya macularia Harris and its various races considerable attention, with the
result that crocearia Pack, is rescued from the synonymy and applied to the form that occurs
in the Great Basin Region of the United States, and also to a similar form occurring on Vancouver Island. For the benefit of those collectors who may think that they have two different
varieties of this species, it is as well to add that this form is sexually dimorphic. In a long
series taken by the writer it is noticeable that while the females in general are much scarcer
than the males, the dimorphic female is far more prevalent than the typical one.
In Cont Lep. No. Amer., Vol. IV., No. 1, May, 1917, Messrs. Barnes and McDunnough have
revised the whole of the genus Hydriomena. Many radical changes have been made and new
species added, some of which refer to our British Columbia forms, so that it will be advisable
for collectors to alter their check-lists accordingly.   ,
Hydriomena albifasciata victoria B. & McD. This has always been listed as reflata Grt. in
British Columbia collections, but this name has been restricted to an Arizona race of albifasciata,
and the name victoria has been given to the Vancouver Island form; the types being three males
and two females from Victoria.
Hydriomena exculpata tribulata B. & McD. This is a grey form of exculpata, a new species
described from Ketchikan, Alaska. The localities given for the form tribulata are Oregon,
Colorado, and Kaslo, B.C.
Hydriomena perfracta exasperata B. & MoD. The race exasperata was described from two
specimens taken by the late Rev. G. W. Taylor, one at Departure Bay, near Nanaimo, and the
other at Wellington. It is evidently very rare. One male specimen was taken by the writer at
Victoria on May 19th, 1914.
Hydriomena renunciata columbiata form pernigrata B. & McD. The types of this form
came from Glacier National Park, Montana; the paratypes, one male and one female, from
Skagit Basin, B.C.; and one male from Stikine River, B.C. The latter probably collected by
Theodore Bryant, of Ladysmith, who collected in that district when with a survey party.
Hydriomena edenata grandis B. & McD. The racial name of grandis has been given to our
Vancouver Island form, which has been previously known as edenata Swett. Typical edenata,
which was described from Eden Valley, Monterey County, Cal., is very much smaller than the
one we get here and is shaded with a warm brown, while our form is tinged with green.
The genus Xanthorhce, which contains several distinct groups of species, has been badly
mixed up in the past, and much misidentification of species has ensued.
As it was also felt that there were several species, or at least good varieties, going under the
same name, the writer collected extensively in this genus for several years, with the result that
Mr. L. W. Swett, the well-known geometridist, described several new forms of the defensaria
group, which were illustrated in the Annual Report of the Provincial Museum for the year 1915,
Plate VII., Figs. 5 to 12.
In the pontiaria-fossaria group Mr. Swett has just described the following three new species
in the Can. Ent, Vol. 50, No. 1, p. 17 et seq.:—
Xanthorlwe macdunnoughi Swett. This occurs all over the southern portion of Vancouver
Island, but it is not common by any means. The types are from specimens taken by the writer
at Victoria.    Paratypes of each sex have been placed in the Museum collection.
Xanthorhce atlinensis Swett. This species was taken at Atlin by E. M. Anderson in 1914,
and was described from eight specimens, all male. It is close to fossaria Taylor, which was
described from Mount Cheam.    Paratypes are in the Museum collection.
Xanthorlue blackmorei Swett. Described from material taken by the writer at Goldstream
and Victoria. This species is very distinct, as in most cases the blackish median band becomes
obsolescent below the median vein. A male paratype has been, placed in the Museum collection.
Illustrations of these new species will be found in an accompanying plate.
During the season of 1917 there have been numerous accessions to the Herbarium of the
Provincial Museum, notably the presentation of a large collection of plants of Vancouver Island, O 16 Provincial Museum Eeport. 1918
collected, mounted, and named by Professor John Macoun since he has resided at Sidney, B.C.,
together with a collection of Musci and Lichens made by him on Vancouver Island and a portion
of the Mainland of this Province. This collection, made and named by so eminent a botanist,
will be a valuable acquisition as a source of reference in the identity and for determination of
other specimens.
Mr. W. B. Anderson, of Victoria, has contributed a large number of plants, collected in his
leisure hours, from the Interior, which cover many localities, from Fort George to Penticton and
extending through West Kootenay. This collection will undoubtedly add much new material to
the Herbarium, especially as regards distribution.
The Fort George specimens cover a new area not hitherto represented in the collection.
A few of the plants from the various localities mentioned are as follows:—
Chenopodium b'otrys. Physostegia parviflora.
Axyris amarantoides. Orthocarpus luteus.
Calochortus elegans. Potcntilla flabelliformis.
Mclampyrum lineare. Galeopsis tetrahit.
Anemone virginiana. Crepis tectorum.
Chrysothamnus nauseosus. Eehium vulgare.
Chimaphila menziesii. Hieracium scouleri var. cynoglossoides.
Antennaria rosea. Erigeron acris var. drwbachiensis.
Anthriscus sativa. Senecio balsamitce var. thomsoniensis.
Gilia aggregata.
Among these Axyris amarantoides L. and Crepis tectorum L., introduced plants, appear to
be additions to the flora of British Columbia.
Mr. W. A. Newcombe has also donated a representative collection made in the vicinity
of Quesnel Lake and a portion of the Chilcotin country during the seasons of 1916 and
1917 ; amongst the rarer species and some not previously reported from these regions are the
Chilcotin, 1916.
Stephanomeria minor. Solidago decumbens.
Calochortus macrocarpus. Mentzalia kevicaulis.
Quesnel Lake, 1917.
Epipactis repcns var. ophioides. Alnus tenuifolia.
Habenaria orbiculata, Mltella nuda.
Parnassia palustris. Ribes glandulosum,
Rubus strigosus. Ribes oxyacanthoides.
Spiraa menziesii. Vaccinium canadensc.
Dracocephalum parvifforum. Hieracium umbellatum.
Stephanomeria minor. Senecio eremophilus.
In this as in Mr. Anderson's collection there are a number of doubtful specimens, which
have been forwarded to Mr. J. M. Macoun, Chief of the Division of Biology, Geological Survey,
Ottawa, and Professor J. K. Henry, of the University of British Columbia, for comparison with
authenticated specimens and identification, and until such time as this work has been completed
no adequate list can be chronicled.
Specimens of two additions to the flora of Vancouver Island, Arnica cordifolia and Roman-
zoffia unalaschensis, collected by Dr. C. F. New7Combe, of Victoria, have been donated by him to
the collection in the Herbarium.
On June 16th, 17th, and 18th, Mr. F. Kermode, Director, accompanied by Dr. F. C. Newcombe,
of Victoria, made a small collection of the more uncommon plants growing around Bella Coola;
the following, which are usually plants growing at much higher altitude, were collected on the
river-bottom, a little above sea-level:—
Epilobium lalifolium. Pentstemon diffusus.
Mimulus leicisii.
In the matter of distribution the following interesting species were collected in close
proximity to salt water:—
Trautvetteria grandis. Corydalis sempervirens.
Ranunculus orthorynchus var. platyphyllus.       Aralia nudicaulis.
Hemieva raniinculifolia. Senecio balsamita; var. thomsoniensis. The Director and his assistant made a small collection on August 1st and 2nd of the more
interesting plants of Mount Arrowsmith, undoubtedly one of the richest floral fields of Vancouver
Island. The following specimens were collected, which appear to be additions to the flora of
Vancouver Island not hitherto recorded:—
Oxyria digyna.
Lewisia pygmcca.
Saxifraga lyallii.
Antennaria rosea.
Other species of interest were:—
Lewisia Columbiana.
Erysimum elatum.
Saxifraga punctata.
Potentilla dissecta var. glaucophylla.
Lomatium martindalei var. augustatum.
Cladothamnus pyrolwflorus.
Mimulus alpinus.
Pedicularis ornithoryncha.
Arnica amplexicaulis.
Draba nivalis.
Silene acaulis.
Osmorrhiza purpurea.
Agoseris glauca.
Ranunculus eschscholtzii.
Saxifraga bronchialis.
Saxifraga tolmiei.
Potentilla villosa,
Epiloblum anagallidifolium.
Dodecatheon pauciflorum,
Phyllodoce glanduliflorus.
Arnica latifolia.
Senecio triangularis.
A few plants were also collected in the vicinity of Long Beach, on the west coast of
Vancouver Island, the latter part of September, including:—
Polypodium scouleri. Botrychium silaifolium.
Carex macrocephala. Hydastylus brachypus.
Listera caurina. Empetrum nigrum.
Gentiana douglasiana. Franseria bipinnatiflda.
.     St achy s ciliata var. pubens.
A large number of specimens have been mounted by Miss H. J. Hendry, now in charge of
the office of the Museum, and placed in the collection of the Herbarium; a card-index has been
completed of the mounted specimens, and the whole have been arranged in their systematic
order of families, according to the check-list of the plants of Gray's Manual.
A record has also been made of all duplicates and unmounted material, and the same placed
in genus-covers and arranged in the same systematic order.
The nucleus of the Herbarium, the original collection loaned by the Department of Agriculture, and made by Mr. J. R. Anderson at the time he was Deputy Minister of Agriculture, has
been rearranged and placed in the accepted order; this collection still remains in its original
genus-covers and is in an excellent state of preservation, due to the great care Mr. Anderson
took in preparing his specimens, many of which were collected twenty years ago.
From an educational standpoint the collection now in the Herbarium is available to teachers
and other students of botany, and should prove a great facility to them for comparison in
identifying any plants they do not know. A number of the latest and most authentic books on
our flora are also at hand for reference; these will be found in the office of the Museum.
