Abstract

I AM indebted to Eugene S. McCartney for calling attention to an error in my article on "The use of generic names as common nouns," SCIENCE, Vol. 96, p. 252. "Pelomyxa carolinensis," line 13, should be omitted, for "carolinensis" is not a noun in the genitive case, but an adjective in the nominative case.
