After writing my last paper on the Lepidoptera of Iowa, viz., "Some Iowa Records of Lepidoptera," I still had in my possession a considerable number of specimens of Tineoidea and all of the Phycitinae which I had taken in the state. I attempted to work up this material during my last few months as curator of the Barnes collection at Decatur, Illinois, and succeeded with most of the Tineoidea. The subfamily Phycitinae of the Pyralidae is in such great need of careful revision that I feel safer in omitting it entirely at present, though I have identified a few species with a reasonable degree of certainty.
