dry pinned: caddis


Notes:
Part of William Hunter's (1718-1783) insect collection dating from eighteenth century. The specimens were curated by Johann Christian Fabricius, whose work 'Species Insectorum' (1781) was used to lay out the collection by the Trustees and Hunter's nephew Matthew Baillie between 1783-5. Some specimens in some drawers were known to have been added later, up to end of the C18th century. Some originate from other collections such as those of Drury, Banks, Yeats and Fothergill. There is a a marked difference between this and the one next to it (136734), which surely Fabricius would have noticed and not grouped them together.
