About this Item

Pp. 135, 8 chromolithographic color plates, 20 text-figures. Publisher's original gray printed wrappers, folio. Memoirs of the American Museum of Natural History, volume 1, part 6. The Sesiidae or clearwing moths are a family of the Lepidoptera in which the wings have few of the normal lepidopteran scales, leaving them transparent. The general appearance of these clearwing moths is wasp-like or hornet-like which reduces their predation through the process of "Batesian mimicry." The seven pages of fine color plates show the numerous species within the Sesiidae in great detail. No ownership marks. Edges of wrappers chipped with some pieces missing; a bright and clean copy in near fine condition. Bookseller Inventory # 3954
