Homoptera strix Fabr. – Brazil – Jas. Monroe. On the tray itself is a new label “Thysania agrippina”. Unfortunately, the collector didn’t include the date it was collected but the specimen label is quite old, handwrittenin ink, and we assume it to be from late 19th Century.
I can't quite decipher this. "Fabr." is no doubt Johan Fabricius, a Danish taxonomist whose name is associated with some 10,000 species he described. "Strix" is an owl genus--is it a taxonomist's shorthand for "owl" moth? --DLC
