This field book contains field notes of collections Stelfox made from 1 January 1940 to 15 July 1941 in 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. Localities include, but are not limited to Glenasmole, Raheen, Powercourt, Glencree, Glen of Imaal, Kilkea Park, Athdown, and Clondalkin. 'R.C.L.P' following a name signifies that specimen were seen and verified by D. R. C. L. Perkins, F.R.S. A letter from Irene Briscole is inserted at page 269.
