A HISTORY OF SURREY honey secretions of other insects is known to all. This solicitude is -not however confined to the aphis family ; the larvae of Psyllida and of the Membracidce and even those of the Centrotidce are often laid under contri- bution for what is analogous to the honey-dew obtained from homopterous species either living under or above ground. But this taste for sweets is not the only inducement to the epicitism of numerous insects of other insect orders, which are found to seek the sociability of the ant-hill ; amongst the Coleoptera alone Mr. Donisthorpe notes approximately one hundred species. Centipedes and woodlice also add their numbers as tolerated guests in these ant-communities. CICADINjE Haslemere Cicadetta montana, Amyot. MEMBRACID/E CENTROTID.S Centrotus cornutus.
