Abstract

This field book contains field notes of collections Stelfox made from 1 June 1926 to 27 March 1929 in mostly Wicklow and Dublin Counties, Ireland. Most specimens collected were insects, primarily hymenoptera. Other types of specimens may have been collected. Stelfox lists the name of the specimen, date collected, sex, quantity, sometimes remarks on the weather, location, sometimes specific type of environment, sometimes remarks about which specimens he would like to collect, sometimes additional information. Some specimens were collected by R. A. Phillips. Localities include, but are not limited to Arklow, Rathdrum, Kilbarrack, Powerscourt, and Cloghoge Glen. 'R.C.L.P' following a name signifies that specimen were seen and verified by D. R. C. L. Perkins, F.R.S. “List of ichneumon sent to S. Roman, 14/2/28. See also in letter dated 24/2/28”, with numbers 35-74, is also included, as well as miscellaneous inserts containing field notes.

Stockholm Nov. 18th, 1927. Dear Mr Stelfox, Now your Glypta are perused & I am returning them to you. Your identifications are not at all bad, in fact most of them are quite right & only wanted a confirmation. It is remarkable how dark the colour is on most of them, a little darker than in Scandinavia, where it is, however, darker than in central Europe. No doubt this is a consequence of your climate with much moisture & little sun. I am sorry you had no species with "broken" costa [[strikethrough]] pr [[/strikethrough]]genalis, but I only remember two, fradigena Thu & genalis Möll., & both are rare, but you had at least a species with an intermediate form (bipunctoria Thunb.), so you can imagine how it looks (see also your notes!). Two species I had almost expected to find in your box, vis mandibulator Thunb. (xanthognatha Thoms.) & femorator Desv. The former is not rare in all Sweden & is easy to recognize by the yellow clypeus [[male symbol]] [[female symbol]]. The latter is a small [[male symbol]] with ± blackish femora & thickly peibescent clypeus, & I think it is simply the [[male symbol]] of vulucrator Gr. Perhaps you will find them in the future. By the study of your specimens I found there is a distinct variability in the length of the terebra within certain species. There is much reason to believe, that different hosts have produced these variations, & I suppose they are real races & not only aberrations. Unfortunately your specimens were very difficult to handle & it is sheer luck I have not broken anything. Outside the British Isles entomologists have no experience of the short needles & consider them a nuisance. For Hymenoptera I heartily concur with
this opinion I find well founded. Some time ago I wrote about it to Rev. Johnson & have not yet received an answer, so he may have grown cross. I hope, however, it will not be for a long time, for he is a kind & interested gentleman & accordingly a desirable correspondent. Your notes accompany this letter. Your next box is expected with mixed feelings, for interesting as the insects may be, the needles are, to speak with a Swedish proverb, as "salt in a sour eye". Yours truly, [[underlined]] A. Roman.

[[underlined]] Specimens of genus Glypta [[/underlined]] from A.W.S. Nat. Mus., Dublin. 1 & 2. [[male symbol]] & [[female symbol]]. Run to [[underlined]] rostrata [[/underlined]] Holmgr. but in [[female symbol]] "die hintorsten Schienen-spitzen und Tarsen" are not "schwarz"! I presume this is your "hornless var." of [[underlined]] bicornis [[/underlined]] which Johnson has recorded? Is this var. really the [[underlined]] rostrata [[/underlined]] of Holmgr.? Glypta bicornis rostrata Hgn [[male symbol]] [[female symbol]]. I have only seen a few specimens & only taken 1 myself. 3 & 4. [[male symbol]] & [[female symbol]]. Run to [[underlined]] ceratites [[/underlined]] Grav., but "hintersten Sporen" do not seem to me to be "fast länger als des halbe metatarsus". Very common. Glypta ceratites Gr. [[male symbol]] [[female symbol]]. 5 & 6. [[male symbol]] & [[female symbol]]. Run to [[underlined]] elongata [[/underlined]] Holmgr. Very common. Glypta elongata Hgn [[male symbol]] [[female symbol]] dark var. Wanted, A. Rm. [[checkmark]] 7. 1 [[female symbol]]. Runs to [[underlined]] monoceros [[/underlined]] Grav. I have one other [[female symbol]]. Glypta ?monoceros Gr. [[male symbol]] dark var. 8. [[vertically, left margin]] Certainly [[underlined]] not [[/underlined]] genalis Möll. [[/vertically, left margin]] 1 [[female symbol]] Runs to [[underlines]] genalis [[/underlined]] Möller, but metathorax is not, in my opinion "vollständig gefeldert mit kräftigen Leistor". Is it possibly only a black "[[underlined]] rostrata [[/underlined]]? It comes from the same locality as the [[female symbol]] [[underlined]] "rostrata" [[/underlined]] above (No. 2) & is the only specimen I have seen. [[vertical line, left margin]] What is the "Wangen leiste"? And when is it "gebrochen"? I dont know what to look for! Wauge = cheek. The "Waugeuleiste" is the posterior margin of the cheek; it is called "broken" when it has a|narrow emargination. Seems to be a black var. of G. bicornis rostrata Hgn. [[image: section of insect]] [[label]] Waugeuleiste [[/label]]
[[ripped page]] 9 & 10. [[male symbol]] & [[female symbol]] Run, with doubt, to [[underlined]] mensurator [[/underlined]] Grav. Very common. Probably right, but dark var. Wanted. A. Rm. [[checkmark]] 11. 1 [[female symbol]]. Smaller & doubtfully the same as No. 10. Right. 12. 1 [[female symbol]] A large reddish specimen with very elongate terebra & short transverse 2 & 3 segments. ? same species as No. 10 An interesting form of meusurator, perhaps = migrotrochauterata Strobl. but w. yellow stigma & more red on abd. & trochanters. 13. 1 [[female symbol]]. Same as last ? only blacker. Is nigrotrochauterata, only the yellow stigma differs. 14. 1 [[female symbol]]. Same as last? Right, only darker. NB. These [[2 female symbols]], with long [[terchra?]], which look like a var. of [[underlined]] "mensurator" [[/underlined]] are equally as common as those like No. 10 with shorter [[terchra?]]! Wanted. A.Rm [[checkmark]] 15. 1 [[female symbol]]. With clypens ? "dicht schopfig behaart". If so, then, it seems to run to [[underlined]] vulnerator [[/underlined]] Grav., but the costulae are ? "deutlich". This, the only specimen [[insertion]] [[circled]] like this [[/circled]] [[/insertion]] I have seen with "d. schopfig behaart clypeus", was taken in the same locality, an island spp the Dublin coast, as No. 10. Is vulnerator Cr. Seems to differ from mensurator only by the densely pubescent clypeus. The more or less distinct cortulae are of little importance.
16 & 17. [[male symbol]] & [[female symbol]]. I cannot make these fit anything; but they seem distinct from anything I have. Its [[2 male symbols]] are not uncommon but I have only taken 2 [[2 female symbols]]. Probably similis Bridg. (clypeus densely pubescent!) 18 & 19. [[male symbol]] & [[female symbol]] Seem to fit [[underlined]] biforeolata ! [[/underlined]] Very common. Right, but var. with coxa [[male symbol]] [[female symbol]] black. 20. 1 [[male symbol]] (rather mutilated). Johnson named this [[underlined]] filicornis [[/underlined]], but I am more than doubtful if it fits that species! Either similis or filicornis, but impossible to discern in a [[male symbol]]. 21 & 22. [[male symbol]] & [[female symbol]]. Runs to [[underlined]] longicauda [[/underlined]] Htg. I have numerous [[2 male symbols]] & 2 or 3 [[2 female symbols]]. [[checkmark]] Wanted. A.Rm. Probably right, but is only a form of bifoveolata (antennae!). 23 & 24. [[male symbol]] & [[female symbol]] Runs to [[underlined]] haesitator [[/underlined]] Grav., but costulae in [[female symbol]] seem fairly well marked. Common. Is parvicaudata Bridg. (= crassitarsis Thu, both described 1889). 25. 1 [[female symbol]]. Runs to [[underlined]] nigricornis [[/underlined]] (?). I have another [[female symbol]]! Right. Have found [[male symbol]] [[female symbol]] at Upsala on umbelliferous flowers. 26. 1 [[female symbol]] Runs to [[underlined]] varicoxa [[/underlined]] [[strikethrough]] Grav. [[/strikethrough]] Thoms (or ? pedata Desv.). The only specimen I have seen. Right. A [[female symbol]] from Upsala has purer white on hind legs. 27 & 28. [[male symbol]] & [[female symbol]]. Run, with much doubt, to [[underlined]] tenuitarsus [[/underlined]] Thoms. This is a common species in the mountains at 1,000 to 2,000 ft. above sea-level, amongst [[underlined]] Calluna vulgaris [[/underlined]] &c. Is parvicaudata.
29. 1 [[female symbol]] Somewhat like the last (28), but with shorter terebra & differently coloured hind tibiae & tarsi. Johnson named this specimen "[[underlined]] scalaris [[/underlined]]" Grav.! This specimen was also taken in the mountains! Also parvicaudata. The length of terebra evidently varies a little within the species; different hosts? 30. 1 [[female symbol]] Might run to [[underlined]] filicornis [[/underlined]] Thoms., but does not seem to fit that species. Is clypeus "nicht" or "dicht" sehopfig behaart? The only specimen I have taken! Is nigricornis. Clyp. seen in profile thickly pubescent. 31 & 32. [[male symbol]] & [[female symbol]]. Run to [[underlined]] flavolinealia [[/underlined]]]] Grav. Common. [[underlined]] Obs! [[/underlined]] The costagenalis ("Waugeuleiste") is sinuous nearly "broken". Right, but the species ought to be called [[underlined]] bipunctoria Thumb. [[/underlined]]. 33. 1 [[male symbol]]. Runs to [[underlined]] evanescens [[/underlined]] Rtzb. The only specimen I have seen. Right. 34. 1 [[male symbol]] which I cannot place at all! Probably meusurator, but different to say from a single [[male symbol]. Please return these notes to A.W.S. [[line]]
