|Contribution||Reported that silkworm deaths were attributable to two diseases.|
|Notes||One was the corpuscular disease, or pebrine; the other was a non-corpuscular, enteric-fermentation disease, or flacherie. The corpuscles were seen to reproduce (cf. 1866) and were thus microorganisms. Both diseases could be controlled by selective breeding of healthy worms.|
