This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1846 edition. Excerpt: ...levior lineata Platysthetus sulcatus tibialis Oxytelns depressus. The banks of the river Flesk are the best collecting grounds in the vicinity of Killarney, and that portion of them between Flesk priory and the shores of the Lower Lake I found by far the most productive. At Glengarilfe in the county of Cork, I met with tolerable success but, here, as in all the other maritime localities, the Brachelytra occupied the largest portion of the insect community. The damp woods at the head of Bantry Bay produce an abundance of the commoner Geodephaga, ---and I here for the first time met with Phosphuga subrotundata, --an insect so common in many parts of Ireland, though not yet recorded as an English species. The following short list will give a fair idea of the few insects with which these unproductive woods more particularly abound: Helobia brevicollis Agonum parumpunctatum Badister bipustulatus Synuchus vivalis Argutor vernalis Omaseus nigrita. Harpalus latus Trechus fulvus Notiophilus striatus Laccobius globosns Cercyon laterale Aphodius fimetarius Otiorhynichus sulcatus Lagria hirta Astenus angustatus Oxytelus nitens depressus Platysthetus sulcatus Rugilus orbiculatus Lathrobium punctato-striatum Staphylinus aeneocephalus Xantholinus linearis _ atomarium-Raphirus semiobscurus minutum Quedius impressus stercorarium Tachyporus chrysomelinus Aphodius prodromus subtestaceus. Further inland the county Qf Cork opens a far richer field to the entomologist. Leaving the bare, uncultivated tracts of Kerry (as unproductive as they are beautiful) greater fertility abounds, and along with it, civilization, comparatively speaking, strides apace. The im, mediate neighbourhood of Cork I had but little time to explore, and nothing in any way uncommon occurred.
