H. G. Dyar, Bluebook 213-270, 1890-1896

About the Project

What do Dixa dyari, Euleucophaeus dyari, and 70 other insect species have in common? Their scientific names all pay tribute to the same scientist--National Museum of Natural History entomologist Harrison G. Dyar.

Dyar devoted his life to taxonomy, and classified thousands of new species of butterflies, moths, and mosquitoes, in his lifetime. This field book documents his research from 1890-96 in New York and California. Learn more about Dyar's groundbreaking research and help transcribe his field notes!
