Several genera included among the Bryozoa, in the original text of this work, belong to the polyp corals. See remarks under Ccelenterata. in 1889, when the work was in part printed, and most of the article on the Bryozoa was in the ^'alleys, but not yet made up into pages, part of the printed pages of Vol. YIII of the Illinois Geo. Sur. was presented to me, and, on the representation that the volume would be published at about the sair.e time that my work would be, I was induced to open up the galleys and insert the Bryozoa from the Illinois Report. This caused several genera, by oversight, to appear in different families, and practically destroyed the family arrangement, and it, probably, also led to the accidental placing of the words "Subkingdom Mollusca" over the word Brachiopoda. While, therefore, I published the species from the Illinois Report as "in press," the fact is, that the volume was not published for a year or more after my work was published. Such family names as Amplexoporid(e, Batostomdlidce, Rhabdomesontidce, etc., must be stricken out; but as so many genera of polyp corals are printed with the Bryozoa, I. will not, at this time, undertake a family arrangement of the Class, which, at best, could only be approximately correct. Microscopic sections, in the hands of a scholar, are no doubt of great service in exposing the life history of the Bryozoa; but there are some who can make two or three genera and five or six species out of a single specimen, and it will not do to place much confidence in their microscopic work. Ample.vopora is not a valid genus and affinis, pustuloHn, »<'ptom, sitperba, and irwchelti may be referred to Moriticuli- pora; end canadeniiig, cingttlata,
