Abstract

IN Mr. Beddard's Monograph of the Oligochæta, p. 216, reference is made to Rhynchelmis limosella Hoffm., in these words: “There is every probability that it is a native of this country.” I reported the finding of a specimen some years ago at Ringwood, but there was an element of doubt. Now, however, I am in receipt of an excellent specimen sent me by Mr. W. J. Lucas, which puts the matter beyond all question. Mr. Beddard thinks there is a specimen in the Oxford Museum, but I have had no confirmation of this.
