Notes

This Field Trip Diary comprises the field notes from the James A. G. Rehn and Morgan Hebard Southern Utah Expedition encompassing Utah, Nevada and Arizona from 16 August 1926 to 17 September 1926. Rehn and Hebard were entomologists from the Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and this was one of many expeditions they undertook to collect and catalog the grasshopper fauna of the western United States. The field notes were authored by James Rehn and provide a daily description of activities, routes traveled, towns visited, the terrain, flora and fauna, collecting sites, specimens collected, and birds sighted each day. A list is included of the photographs taken on the expedition (although these photos have not been located.) The specimens collected were primarily grasshoppers, but references to other animals - bats, two prairie dogs, a pinyon jay, and western ground snake led to their discovery in the Academy’s collections.
