THE CORIXIDAE OF THE WESTERN HEMISPHERE (HEMIPTERA). THE UNIVERSITY OF KANSAS SCIENCE BULLETIN, VOLUME XXXII, NOVEMBER 25, 1948
Hungerford, H.B.
Lawrence, KS: University of Kansas Publications, 1948.

Inscribed by Hungerford on the front free endpaper, "to R.L. Usinger with the compliments of H.B. Hungerford." The identification of American Corixidae has been a difficult and discouraging task. The uniformity of shape, similarity of color patterns, the lack of obvious structural characters have always made this family a perplexing one. 827 pages with 112 plates and index. From the library of Robert L. Usinger with his bookplate on the front paste-down endpaper. Usinger (1912-1968) served on the faculty in the Department of Entomology at the University of California at Berkeley from 1946 until his untimely death in 1968. Bound in original dark blue cloth with lettering and rule on the spine in gilt. Short scrape to the front cover. A very good copy.
