Peripatus in the West Indian Islands


WEST INDIAN records show that occasionally single specimens of various species of Peripatus have been found in the different islands. During the past week, Mr. Lunt, my assistant, found a single specimen, and a further search being organised, resulted in the capture, by two collectors, of fifty specimens. These, it is believed, belong to two different species, and a goodly number of the specimens have been sent for determination to the British Museum.
