A HISTORY OF WARWICKSHIRE LARENTIINJE (continued) Larentia dilutata (S. V.) Bkh. Very common everywhere cuculata, Hufn. (sinuata [S.V.] Hb.) Mr. W. G. Blatch bred one in 1869 from a larva found at Knowle rivata, Hb. sociata, Bkh. (subtristata, Haw.) j There are numerous records of both these species, but I am of opinion that most if not all of the specimens are sociata ; Rivata may occur, but I think it is rare if it does ; sociata is very common unangulata, Haw. Rare. Sutton (H. M. Lee) ; Knowle (W. G. Blatch, R. C. Bradley, etc.) ; Rugby = Bar- by, Overslade, etc. (Rugby lists) ; Atherstone (C. Baker) albicillata, L.

Bradley); Solihull (Blatch Coll.) ; Rugby = Overslade (Rugby lists) albulata, Schiff. Commoner than the above two species ; occurs every- where testaceata, Don (Asthena sylvata [S.V.] Hb.) Rare. Knowle = Chalcot Wood (R. C. Bradley, W. G. Blatch) ; Rugby (N. V. Sidgwick and Rugby lists) ; Wolford (W. C. E. Wheeler) ; Coombe Wood (G. B. Longstaff, E.M.M. iii. 138) obliterata, Hufn. (heparata [S.V.] Haw.) Not common. Occurs at Sutton amongst the alders ; and at Marston Green (G. W. Wynn and E. C. Tye) ; Know It (R. C. Brad- ley, etc.); Solihull (Blatch Cat.); Atherstone (C. Baker) LARENTIIN.S: (continued) Larentia luteata, Schiff. Not common. Knowle (W. G. Blatch) ; Rugby = Brandon Woods, etc. (Rugby lists) ; Atherstone (C. Baker) flavofasciata, Thnbg. (decolorata, Hb.) Not uncommon. Tardley, Marston Green, Sutton (G. W. Wynn, etc.) ; Knowle (R. C. Bradley) ; Rugby (Rugby lists) ; Atherstone (C. Baker) ; Whitchurch (J. H. Bloom) ; Edgbas- ton (R. C. R.

Wynn) ; Sutton (H. M. Lee, G. W. Wynn, etc., etc.) ; Knowle (R. C. Bradley, etc.) ; Solihull (Blatch Hand.); Rugby (Rugby list 1888 only) ; Atherstone (C. Baker) [ ruberata, Frr. Has been recorded many times, but never seems to stand investigation. I do not believe it occurs with us at all, although it is given in both Enock's lists and Blatch Hand.] silaceata (S.V.), Hb. Not common. Rugby (Rugby lists) ; Wolford (W. C. E. Wheeler) ; Whitchurch (J. H. Bloom) ; Brandon Woods (N. V. Sidgwick) corylata, Thnbg. Common through- out the county badiata (S.V.) Hb.

In the Blatch collection is a specimen bred by Mr. W. G. Blatch from a larva found at Knowle in 1869 Mr. C. Baker records it from Ather- stone, and it is given in the Rugby lists, but Mr. N. V. Sidgwick writes to me that he never heard of its capture and doubts it. It occurs in Mr. Enock's list 1869 comitata, L. Rugby = Overslade, etc. (Rugby lists and Mr. N. V. Sidg- wick) ; Atherstone (C. Baker) 144
