IN browsing through some of the older literature, I came across the following short accounts, all from the Entomologist, Vol. iv for 1868-9. 1868 was incidently a most remarkable year for lepidoptera in general and migrants as well. I think they are of interest to record once more. Vanessa antiopa at Sproughton near Ipswich. I had the great success of capturing a beautiful specimen of this valuable insect. I first saw it on a bank of a ploughed field. Thence it flew on to a hedge and at last settled on an oak tree where I caught it. R. W .

RANSOM.

Limenitis sybilla and Apatura iris at Ipswich. Both these species have been so plentiful that some collectors have taken eight to ten dozen of each. G.

Argynnis lathonia at Ipswich. A few days since a lad took what he called a small adippe in a clover field near the town which proved to be a fine male of lathonia. He sold it to Mr. Eaton, a bird stuffer here. G.

GARRETT.

Hermaphrodite specimen of Satyrus semele. Yesterday my son captured in my garden a beautiful hermaphrodite specimen of Satyrus semele. The wings on the left side are precisely like those of the female and the wings on the right side exactly as those of the male. I suppose one would call it an hermaphrodite, as it partakes of both sexes. G.

GARRETT,

Catocala fraxini

Woodbridge Rd., Ipswich, 17 July, 1868.

at Aldeburgh.

Two specimens of Catocala fraxini have occurred here this summer, one on August 14th, captured by a friend near Low Lighthouse and the second I caught at sugar this day. They are both splendid specimens. N.
