About a year ago I described in the Western Medical Review (Vol. I. pp. 35, 36) a new tape-worm under the name of Taenia confusa. Only two specimens of the form were available at that time and I have not been successful in obtaining others since then. During the past 'year, one of the students in the Zoological Laboratory of the University of Nebraska has been conducting a careful investigation of this form and one specimen has been entirely sacrificed to that purpose, In advance of the publication of his thesis it seems that I should make a short explanation of one point in which it will perhaps appear lacking.
