The notebook documents Harrison G. Dyar's observations and collecting of insects. Covers specimen numbers 158-196 (December 1889 – August 1890 noted) and is entitled “Descriptions of Lepidopterous Larvae continued from Blue Book, 158 - 196”. Entries are headed with number (BB#), followed by reference to vegetation, sometimes location. Descriptions are often accompanied with dates; these often entail characteristics (appearance, color, size, measurements) of specimen relating to life cycle. Insect identifications are sometimes at the end of the entry. There are sketches in insect anatomy, references to catalog numbers, and loose inserts with additional specimen information. Locations related include Florida (Palm Beach, Jacksonville) and New York (Ulster county).
