These were roughly dissected ; the first to die had apparently laid nearly all its eggs before capture, </p><p>while the ovaries of the second contained eggs at all stages of maturity and ripe eggs had passed down into the oviducts ; unfortunately it was not possible to dissect properly through lack of equipment, and so it cannot be stated whether pairing had occurred before capture or </p><p>not. The time of flight was between 11.15 and 11.50 p.m., after which Bad light made observation difficult. No moths were seen on those nights when none had appeared at the white Rhododendron by 11.30 ; eight of the twelve known for certain to be this species were over the same white Rhododendron bush at various dates and times. A careful search of the neighbourhood for wild ova has so far been unsuccessful, but they are doubtless hard to. find. </p><p>A. F.
