From H. N. Moseley   [after 17 November 1876]

The transcript of this letter is not yet available online.

Summary

Finds he does not have a duplicate of the Japanese natural history book. Sends other volumes of grotesque pictures.

He can show F. W. Hutton erred in calling Peripatus novae zelandiae self-fertilising; suspects J. F. Bullar has made a similar error on parasitic Isopoda. They both mistook spermatophores for testes.
