Correspondence

HUDDERSFIELD ENTOMOLOGY.

To the Editor of the Huddersfield Chronicle.

Sir,

In the work "History of Huddersfield," lately published by Mr. Hobkirk, the only localities mentioned where Gonepteryx rhamni[1] has been caught, are Lepton Great Wood, Lockwood, and Honley Moor. It will, perhaps, be interesting to the entomologists of Huddersfield and its neighbourhood, to know, that on Sunday last I took a very fine specimen, a female, in Birks Wood, thus adding one more locality, where this fine insect has been taken.

Yours respectfully,
J. Hamer.
Almondbury, August 18th, 1859.
