showed me the very small collection of insects, and arranged to take me out with him in the afternoon. After lunch he came by and we drove out a few kilometers past Bayamon to a [[strikethrough]] pineapple [[/strikethrough]] grapefruit packing plant where the cull-pile seemed to offer possibilities.
[[underline]] Station 51. [[/underline]]
5 miles west of Bayamon. The cull-pile of a [[strikethrough]] pineapple [[/strikethrough]] grapefruit packing plant. Fruit in all stages of decay. Found about three ^[[(5)]] [[insertion written in pencil]] Staphs (only 2 species), many Nitidulids, a Forficielid, and a large series of some oval beetle. Were stopped after ten minutes by a heavy rain. Drove back to Bayamon and along a road southward for several kilometers.
[[underline]] Station 52. [[/underline]]
2 miles southwest of Bayamon. A pasture overgrown with grass. A few ^[[(13)]] [[insertion written in pencil]] Staphs and Sphaeridiinae, and an [[underline]] Aphodius [[/underline]].
On way home stopped to look at rotting alinendos at roadside. Found nothing.
[[underline]] Station 58. [[/underline]]
Road between San Juan and Bayamon. A specimen of [[underline]] Metamasius [[/underline]] flew into the car. In the evening finished working over the bag of fungus. Tiny Staphs were very abundant. There must be many hundred.
