Galway: " Report on Sea and Inland Fisheries of Ireland, 1901, pt. 2.) Mr. Farran has observed about 40 species on the west coast, one </p><p>of which, new to science (Ccetanuspileahts), is described and figured. </p><p>Convolvulus Hawk-moth near Belfast. </p><p>I have had given me to-day (September 4) a live specinien of S15kinx </p><p>convolvuli in fine condition, which was captured at Knock, Belfast.

R. M'Clean in that neighbourhood, and among commoner </p><p>species the following are worthy of note:-Leucoy5asic iaf is; %5ione </p><p>advenaria, not rare in Cratloe Woodc; Eurymene dolobraria, several; Perica//ia </p><p>syrin;aria, three; Se/edna lunaria, one at Cratloe Wood; Acida/ia candidata, </p><p>do.,; BagSa ternerata; Panagra petraria, numerous at Cratloe; Lobophora </p><p>ha/tera/a and L. viretata, not rare at Cratloe; Me/anitpe wris/ata and Eucosmia </p><p>undulats, Cratloe, a few. Of the above, Pp/one advenaria (already recorded </p><p>by Mr. Carpenter, A, Nat., vol. xi., p. i9) seems the most important </p><p>discovery, only one other locality in Ireland' being known, but the </p><p>Pericallia and Selenia are most welcome additions to the hitherto known distribution. </p><p>W.
