Capture of Trichius fasciatus near Neath (S2: 1847)

 
 
Editor Charles H. Smith's Note: A one-line note printed on page 1676 of the April(?) 1847 issue of Zoologist. The Editor's snide remark following Wallace's words is amusing. For many years this was thought to be Wallace's earliest publication. To link directly to this page, connect with: http://people.wku.edu/charles.smith/wallace/S002.htm


    Capture of Trichius fasciatus near Neath--I took a single specimen of this beautiful insect on a blossom of Carduus heterophyllus near the falls at the top of Neath Vale.--Alfred R. Wallace, Neath. [The other insects in my correspondent's list are scarcely worth publishing.--E. Newman].
