This field book contains a catalogue of specimen numbered 1-1075 which Chittenden collected or which was collected by others and numbered according to Chittenden's directions between approximately 1907 and 1914. Chittenden and his colleagues collected Lepidoptera, Diptera, Hemiptera, Coleoptera, and other insect groups many or all of which are parasitic. Collecting took place in the United States, Panama, South America, and possibly other locations. Some frequently recorded locations in the United States include Florida, Georgia, Connecticut, North Carolina, Texas, Washington, DC, Maryland, Virginia, California, New Jersey, and Massachusetts. Other locations not recorded in this record are included. The catalogue contains the following information: number, name (binomial), “det” (probably determination), Host (plant or other insect was found on), Locality, Date, and “coll” (probably collector). The beginning of the field book has recorded a “System for numbering Parasites”. The next page includes “Chittenden numbers”, which lists Chittenden's numbers and which collector they correspond to.
