The following paper is based largely on two collections Of fishes, the first being made by the writer and Mr. F. E. Lutz, Of the Carnegie Station for Experimental Evolution, Cold Spring Harbor, in the spring of 1901, and the other by the writer during February, March, April, and May, 1903. Through the courtesy of Dr. Barton W. Evermann, assistant in charge of Scientific Inquiry, United States Bureau Of Fisheries, I have had at my disposal two small collections made by Mr. E. W. Nelson, one from the Rio Balsas and the other from the Rio Soto la Marina. Dr. W. L. Tower, Of the University Of Chicago, also placed at my disposal a collection of fishes made by him at Rio Verde, San Luis Potosi. In January, 190 3, in Washing ton, D. C., Dr. Richard Rathbun, Assistant Secretary Of the Smith somian Institution, and Mr. B. A. Bean, Assistant Curator Of fishes U. S. National Museum, permitted me to examine a large collection which formed a portion Of the Mexican fish exhibit at the Columbian Exposition. I have included only a small portion Of this collection in the following list because of the doubtful character Of the localities given. TO have included the entire collection would have very much confused our study of geographical distribution.
An account Of the collection made by Mr. F. E. Lutz and myself is published in Vol. III. Of the Zoological Series Of the Field Colum bian Museum, Pub. 65, pages 63 to 128, plates 14 to 31. The results Of the second expedition are (1903) included in this paper.
