  As a part of the study of the distribution of the Locust  
E Borer and its injuries in Kentucky the species of Solidago col-  
lected in the state are presented below in the form of a list and  `_
i synopsis, together with the localities from which specimens have  
’ been obtained when the plants were in bloom. The determina-  [
. tions have been made after an examination of the collection in  
the United States National Herbarium at Wasliiiigton, thru the  
courtesy of Doctors XV. R. Maxon and Paul C, Standley, and 7
' also an inspection of the collection in the Department of Botany , 
of the University of Illinois, an opportunity for which my  .
thanks are due to Doctors Trelease, Hottes and others, in cl1a1‘g€·
