A HISTORY OF WARWICKSHIRE ACIDALIIN.S (continued) Acidalia emarginata, L. Doubtfully recorded from Rugby ; in Rugby list 1867 G. B. Longstaff records it, and in a com- munication to me Mr. N. V. Sidg- wick tells me that Mr. A. Sidgwick thinks he saw it years ago, but is not certain remutaria, Hb. Common. Sutton (P. W. Abbott, G. W. Wynn, etc.) ; Knowle (R. C. Bradley, G. W. Wynn, etc.) ; Rugby = Brandon Woods, etc. (Rugby lists) ; Wolford (W. C. E. Wheeler) - immutata, L. Only recorded from Wolford by W. C. E. Wheeler - imitaria, Hb. Not common. . Tardley (H. Taylor) ; Atherstone (C. Baker) ; Wbitchurch (J. H. Bloom) ; Wolford (W. C. E. Wheeler); Rugby = Overslade, etc. (Rugby lists) Ephyra pendularia, Cl. Not common. Knowle (R. C. Bradley, C. J. W., etc.) ; Erd'mgton (Blatch Hand.) ; Rugby = Brandon Woods, etc. (Rugby lists) - annulata, Schulze (omicronaria [S.V.] Hb. Not common ; only re- corded in Rugby lists = Brandon Woods, etc. - porata, F. Not common. Erd'mgton, Knowle (Blatch Hand.); Rugby = Brandon Woods (Rugby list 1886 only) punctaria, L. Not uncommon. Sutton (C. J. W., etc.) ; Knowle (W. Kiss, R. C. Bradley, etc.) ; Erd'mgton (Blatch Cat.) ; Rugby = Brandon [foods, etc. (Rugby lists) ; Atherstone (C. Baker); Coombe Wood (G. B. LongstafF, E.M.M. iii. 138) Timandra amata, L. (amataria, L.) Not common, but generally distributed LARENTIIN^E Ortholitha plumbaria, F. (palumbaria [S.V.] Tr.) Very common in Sutton Park. Also recorded from Rugby = Overslade, Brownsover, etc. (Rugby lists) ; Atherstone (C. Baker) ; and probably common in all suitable localities - cervinata, Schiff. Not common. Sutton (P. W. Abbott, R. C. Bradley) ; Hampton-in-Arden (G. W. Wynn) ; Knowle (Blatch Coll.); Rugby = Ovenlade (Rugby list 1892 only); Atherstone (C. Baker) ; Rugby (once only, N. V. Sidgwick) limitata, Sc. (mensuraria, Schiff.) Common throughout the county LARENTIINJE (continued) Odezia atrata, L. (chaerophyllata, L.) Very local, sometimes occurring in one field only, but it is given in all my lists, and usually is common in the spots where it is found Anaitis plagiata, L. Not uncommon, and seems to occur throughout the county [ paludata, Thnb., var. imbutata, Hb. Both W. G. Blatch in Brit. Assoc. Hand, and Enock in his 1869 list mention this as occurring near Bir- mingham. I however do not know of its occurrence nearer than Chart ley Moss, Staffordshire, and do not think it is at all likely to be found in Warwickshire] Chesias spartiata, Fuesl. Very local, but well distributed. Sutton (G. W. Wynn); Knowle (R. C. Bradley, W. Kiss, etc.) ; Rugby = Ovenlade, etc. (Rugby lists) ; Atherstone (C. Baker) Lobophora carpinata, Bkh. (lobulata, Hb.). Rare. It occurs at Knowle, where I have taken it ; and F. Enock gives it in his list 1870, probably from captures at the same place. At Hopwas Wood just over the border it is very common halterata, Hufn. (hexapterata, Schiff.) Rare. Mr. N. V. Sidgwick writes to me that he took it once at Bran- don Woods, and Rev. J. H. Bloom records it from the Worcestershire side of Whitchurch parish - viretata, Hb. Sutton Park is a well- known headquartersof this usually un- common insect, and in some years it has been taken there in considerable numbers. Of late years however I fear it has been rendered much rarer by over collecting ; at any rate I have not heard of many being taken recently, though that may be because it has not been looked for so much as it used to be Chcimatobia brumata, L. Very common here as elsewhere Triphosa dubitata, L. Common every- where Eucosmia certata, Hb. Rare. Ather- stone (C. Baker) ; Rugby = Ovenlade, etc. (Rugby lists) ; Whitchurch, Worcestershire, J. H.
