Abstract:

On two or three occasions I have received for determination Corixidae taken from considerable depths of water in Lake Erie. Several years ago Dr. C. H. Kennedy sent some examples to me and more recently Dr. V. E. Shelford forwarded five collections made in Lake Erie, and I consider the information of some interest. The species is <I>Arctocorixa lineata</I> Forster described in 1771. It is a small Corixid strikingly marked by three longitudinal dark markings on the hemelytra, two of them on the corium and one on the clavus, and is a species often taken in rivers having considerable current.
