Abstract

WITH regard to the occurrence of Pseudorca crassidens in Ceylon, to which reference was made in NATURE of Dec. 6, 1930, p. 892, and Jan. 10, 1931, p. 60, the full circumstances were not recorded at the time, owing to a printer's lapse. An account of the stranding of a school of 167 false killer dolphins off the northern coast of Ceylon is now in the press and will be published in the Ceylon Journal of Science (Sec. B). This species was previously recorded from Ceylon about forty years ago.
