To Entomologist’s Weekly Intelligencer1 [before 25 June 1859]2
Coleoptera at Down.— We three very young collectors have lately taken, in the parish of Down, six miles from Bromley, Kent, the following beetles, which we believe to be rare, namely, Licinus silphoides, Panagus 4-pustulatus and Clytus mysticus. As this parish is only fifteen miles from London, we have thought that you might think it worth while to insert this little notice in the ‘Intelligencer.’—3
Francis, Leonard & Horace Darwin.
