Donegal. </p><p>While collecting on Dowros Head, near Glenties, Co. Donegal, my </p><p>brother and I took a fine specimen of Dasydia obfuscaria flying near </p><p>Ragwort, on the sea-shore. </p><p>This seems to be the first authentic record of this moth from Ireland, </p><p>as it is omitted by Mr. Kane from his Irish list, on the grounds of want </p><p>of evidence, since the only previous records are one in Birchall's list of </p><p>its capture in Wicklow by Bristow, and an incidental reference by </p><p>Birchall in the Entomiologist of J867 to its occurrence in Kerry. This </p><p>Scotch insect is interesting, as an addition to the number of northern </p><p>species which are found on the west coast of Ireland. The specimen is </p><p>now in the Dublin Museum. </p><p>Templeogue, Co. Dublin. G. P. FARRAN. </p><p>Sphinx convolvull In Ireland. </p><p>A flight of Sphinx convolvuli has made its appearance in England, and </p><p>captures have been made of this occasional visitant in many places. </p><p>Ireland, too, has not been without its share of arrivals, as Major Tenison </p><p>has captured one at tough Bawn, Co. Monaghan, attracted by the </p><p>flowers of Liliurn aura/urn; while at Dromoland Castle, Co. Clare, the </p><p>Hon. Edward O'Brien has taken two specimens. We shall, doubtless, hear of its occurrence in many other parts of Ireland. </p><p>Drumreaske, Monaghan. W. F. DE V. KANE. </p><p>Plezodorus llturatus In Co. Tyrone. </p><p>Examples of this plant-bug were found at Ardhea Rectory in September by Miss Garnett, feeding on Bramble in a bog. I,sent the specimens to </p><p>the Rev. W. F. Johnson, who kindly named them for me. </p><p>Knocknacarry, Co. Antrim. S. A. BRENAN. </p><p>MOLLUSCS. </p><p>Hycirobla Jenkinsi, Smlth, In Co. Down. </p><p>During a few hours visit to Newry one day this month (July) I found </p><p>this species living in immense numbers with Planorbis spirorbis and </p><p>Livinnatere,gra, among Watercress and other plants in fresh-water drains </p><p>in the long-reclaimed estuarine flat below the Moor Quarry, on the </p><p>Warrenpoint road. All the specimens, so far as I have examined them, </p><p>are the type-without the keel-like those Mr. Milne found (see Irish </p><p>Naturalist, June, I898), at St. Johnstone, Co. Donegal, where the river is </p><p>practically fresh. Is it possible that the carination increases with the </p><p>amount of salt water present ? It seems to be so in the Bann and Foyle. </p><p>Belfast. R.
