T.* Wimbledon, larva found May 17, 1 Said at the time to be very abundant and troublesome, its bites causing inflammation, swell- ing and abscesses. At the same period this species was also attracting attention in other London suburbs, such as Lewisham and Stamford Hill. At Aldeburgh in Suffolk, where the insect is abundant and sometimes makes itself very objec- tionable, it is known as the ' Norway mosquito,' and is said to have been introduced from Norway by a yacht. It is however doubtless indigenous to this country. Cf. A. Piffard and E. E. Austen, Ent. Mo. Mag. ser. z, vol. vi. (1895), pp. 227- 229. 152
