ln Africa, Australia, and South America, and they are So numerous that a collection of insects exhibiting Lycoid colouring, if brought together from all parts of the world, would occupy many cabinets. When in SuAh a group the mimicry between any single member and one of the central dominant species is very close, am inclined to suppose that the mimicry is Batesian father than Mullerian ; a very distasteful insect can gam much by acquiring a generalized resemblance to the central dominant species, but it probably has many Ather independent advantages, and may even exhibit a subsidiary warning coloration of its own. But the Palatable Batesian mimic has no advantages outside !ts mimicry, and therefore the resemblance between *t and its model, to be effective, must be close and ^tailed.
