CADDIS IXIES. 383 nests now before me, there 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 longitudinally upon each other like the fasces of the Eoman consuls. Of these I have specimens of various sizes and shapes, some being barely half an inch long, while others measure four. times that length, the sticks being sometimes placed so irregu- larly, that the home of the architect is not easily seen.
