Abstract

This field book contains field notes of collections Stelfox made from 8 September 1955 to 29 June 1957 in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. Specimens collected or observed are mostly insects, primarily hymenoptera, but botanical specimens 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. 'R.C.L.P' following a name signifies that specimen were seen and verified by D. R. C. L. Perkins, F.R.S. Sliddery Ford, Killakee, Bushy Park, Glassdrumman, Tullybrannigan, and Tollymore Park. Botanical specimens in an envelope are inserted at page 175 and 196. A photo is inserted at page 258.
