PARASITES.

[The British species of this interesting family are sadly in need of reVision. Marshall's 1872 Catalogue enumerates six kinds, ofwhich the two Evanice are no more than introductions from abroad and, in the course of a half-century's collecting, I have seen nothing like either or Fcenus erythrostomus, Dahl. T h e other two Fcenus are ubiquitous and I possess Hyptia minuta„ With the completion of this computation of our Hymenoptera, it may , w e U t o succinctly state that well over E I G H T AND A H I L F T H O U S A N D insects are now specifically recorded from Suffolk. This is a satisfactory increase of nearly a thousand beyond the figures (Trans, i, P . 10) known the tlme of this Society's inception ; and may be shown thus : — 1929 1937 Coleoptera . . 2052 2112 (Trans, iii, 186). Hemiptera . . 602 646 ( „ ii, 170). Orthoptera 26 28 ( „ ü, 170). Neuroptera.. 164 208 ( „ iii, 96 & 200). Lepidoptera 1356 1505 (Memoir 1937). Diptera 1857 1919 (Trans, iii, pt. 3).
