It was with much interest that I discovered soon after my
arrival in Tasmania, that a species of White Ant (specific
name at present undetermined) abounds in this colony,
feeding after the manner of the North-American type upon
decaying timber, and having its intestine similarly laden with
specific description of these Infusoria has been published up
to the present date, and it is only so recently as the year
1881, that a detailed account, with illustrations, of the analagous
parasites of the American White Ant (Termes flavipes),
has been contributed by Dr. Joseph Leidy to the "Proceedings
of the Academy of Natural Sciences," Philadelphia.
William Saville-Kent, F.L.S., F.Z.S., was Superintendent and
Inspector of Fisheries, Tasmania.
