To J. V. Carus 30 January 1871

Jan 30 1871
My dear Sir
I am much obliged for yr corrections. The omission at p. 128 was a stupid one; please to add—“Proceedings of Royal Society.”1
I am perplexed about the name Hyrtl; I have referred to your Bibliotheca Zoo: & I find the name thus spelt. Perhaps there is a Hyrt as well as a Hyrtl.2 Be so kind as to inform me on this head.
There are some other errata, & as soon as I can get a proof of the errata I will send you a copy—
At p. 327. please to omit, (10 lines from bottom) the words “or Annulosa”; though I find authors differ so much in their classification that I hardly know what term is the most correct—3
I have now sent you sheets as far as p. 160 of vol 2—& I hope, in about a fortnight, to send you the remainder.
My dear Sir | yours sincerely | Ch. Darwin
Thanks JVC for his corrections. Will send other errata. Hopes to send remainder of vol. 2 [of Descent] in a fortnight.
