Abstract

This field book contains field notes of collections Stelfox made from 16 May 1948 to 18 September 1949 in Ireland. Most specimens collected were insects, primarily hymenoptera. Other types of specimens may have been collected. Notes on botanical specimens observed and possibly collected are also included. 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 Lucan, Kippure House, Athdown, Skerrie Bog, Clara, Killoughter, and Jobstown (currently western part of Tallaght). 'R.C.L.P' following a name signifies that specimen were seen and verified by D. R. C. L. Perkins, F.R.S. Correspondence from Henry Townes to Stelfox and miscellaneous notes are inserted at page 33. 16 pages of notes from A. H. Holiday's diary are included, starting from the back of this journal.
