The work in the proposed supplementary volume of the "Nomenclator Zoologicus" has progressed as fast as could be expected and by the end of the year more than 17000 generic terms had been card-catalogued and arranged alphabetically by classes. It is evident that the original maximum estimate of 2000 genera will be reached or was exceeded.

Mr. Frederick C. Test has been employed as an aid to the department during the entire year. One half of the official time has been devoted to work on the "Nomenclator Zoologicus", the other half almost exclusively to routine work in the department.
