Willis Stanley Blatchley, Charles William Leng. 1916. Rhynchophora or Weevils of North Eastern America. Nature Publishing Co., Indianapolis, Indiana. 682 pp.

This work was begun by the senior author, W. S. Blatchley, as a continuation or supplement to his "Coleoptera or Beetles of Indiana,'' published in 1910. After about one-third of the manuscript had been completed the junior author. Chas. W. Leng, wrote that he had a similar work in progress on the Atlantic Coast species of Rhynchophora and proposed that the two works be combined and the geographical scope enlarged so as to include the United States and Canada east of the Mississippi River. After due consideration the arrangement of a joint authorship was agreed upon, the works as begun were merged, enlarged and mostly rewritten, and the book as issued is the result.

Abstract

At four sites spanning a general triangle with 50–100 km legs in East Tennessee over a six-week period in July and August 2013, 56 fireflies, male and female, from four species and three genera were associated with common milkweed, Asclepias syriaca L. Photinus pyralis (L.), Photinus cooki Green, Pyropyga minuta LeConte, and an determined species of Photuris Dejean repeatedly exhibited seven common behaviors of nectaring from individual blooms and stigmatic slits and actively mouthing floral stems, recurved sepals, and uppermost leaves, lasting from 9–175+ minutes.
