. Homes without hands : being a description of the habitations of animals, classed according to their principle of construction . Animals. CADDIS FLIES. 403 State, together with the perfect insects. All the figures have been drawn from actual specimens, some of which are in the British Museum, and others in my own collection. The materials of which the nest is made depend greatly on the locality in which the insect is hatched, and in a rather large series of Caddis nests now before me tkere are some very remarkable instances of the manner in which the insect has been obliged to adapt itself to circumstances. The most common style of case is that which is composed of a number of sticks and grass stems laid longitudin- ally upon each other like the fasces of the Eoman consuls. Of. Gaddia. these I have specimens of various sizes and shapes, some being barely half an inch long, while others measure four times that â length, the sticks being sometimes placed so irregularly that the home of the architect is not easily seen. The creatures are not at all particular about the straightness of the sticks, but take them.
