P.S. I had a letter the other day from Lowe of Madeira who thinks that the Scorpæna Histrio figd in No. 1.2 & from the Galapagos is the same as one found in the Mediterranean & about him in Atlantic: the two species are very nearly allied I grant, but I can hardly think it possible for them to be the same.
LJ has had a letter from R. T. Lowe in Madeira who thinks Scorpaena histrio, a species from Galapagos described in no. 1 [of Fish], is the same as the one in the Atlantic and Mediterranean. LJ does not think it is possible.
