Excerpt from The Rotifera; Or Wheel-Animalcules: Both British and Foreign; Supplement

IT was originally intended that the two volumes of the 'rotifera' should contain all the. Foreign, as well as all the British species; but, while the work was being written, so many new British forms were discovered, that want of space compelled the authors to omit all but a few of the more remarkable foreign Rotifera. The Supplement, however, now remedies this omission; and completes the work, by describing every known foreign species, as well as the British that have been discovered since its publication in 1886.

Upwards of one hundred and fifty species 1 have been added, in the Supplement, to the two hundred and fifty already described in vols. I. And ii.; and, in almost every case, the description is ao companied by a figure. Besides these, more than forty doubtful, or imperfectly described species, have been briefly discussed, and occasionally illustrated. Both the descriptions and drawings of the foreign species have been taken from the original memoirs in which they first appeared; the doubtful, or insufficiently described species, as well as the mere synonyms, being distinguished from the others by their position in each genus, and by the arrangement of the type.

The Bibliography has been considerably enlarged, and now exceeds two hundred memoirs, the greater part of which I have studied: all of them directly refer to the subject, and most of them are well worth the reading.
