Abstract

From the difference in geological and floral conditions of the northwestern part of the state, we might naturally expect a somewhat interesting insect fauna. Occasional specimens of species, rare or unknown in the central part of the state, have come to hand and, especially in Hemiptera, have served to strengthen a desire to investigate more thoroughly the fauna in this order. Many of these additions have been due to the successful collecting of Mr. E. D. Ball, whose faithful, persistent efforts it is a pleasure to acknowledge here. During the summer of 1897 I spent a couple of weeks in the northwestern counties, primarily in the investigation of Hessian fly injuries, but availing myself of such opportunities as presented to collect the Hemiptera, and such collections at Rock Rapids, Little Rock, Storm Lake, Alta, Cherokee and Sioux City, in Iowa, and Sioux Falls, S. D., by myself, and at Little Rock by Mr. Ball, who gave especial attention to the jassidae of the prairie grasses, furnish a basis for the preliminary consideration of the hemipterous fauna of the region.
