DELACROIXIA CORONATA (Cost.) Sacc. and Sydow. Figs. 4, 5. This interesting member of the Entomophthoraceae was first described by Costantin from France as Boudierella coronata (Bull. Soc. Myc. France 13: 38. 1897) and shortly afterwards transferred by Saccardo and Sydow (Syll. Fung. 14: 475. 1900) to Delacroixia. In the United States it was first isolated in Wisconsin by Gilbert (Trans. Am. Microsc. Soc. 38: 263-269. 1919), who did not, however, ascribe a name to it. A few years later it was isolated from wood in Iowa and published, on what at that time seemed sufficient warrant, as Conidiobolus villosus Martin (Bot. Gazette 80: 311-318. 1925). Kevorkian (Jour. Agr. Puerto Rico 21: 191-200. 1937) transferred the species to Entomophthora, but Couch (Am. Jour. Bot. 26: 128. 1939) expressed the opinion that it should be retained in Delacroixia, in which conclusion I concur.
