June, '03] . ENTOMOLOGICAL NEWS. A List of Lepidoptera Found in the Adirondack Mts. BY G. F. COMSTOCK. Lists of Adirondack insects being so few in number, my list may be of sufficient interest to the readers' of the NEWS to warrant its being published. It represents three years of butterfly collecting, and one year of careless moth collecting, very few moths having been taken at sugar or light. How-ever, it contains the names of species never before found to my knowledge in the Adirondacks. The collecting ground was Keeue Valley, Essex County, New York, on the Ausable River, about ten miles east from Mt. Marcy, the highest peak of the Adirondacks. About seven miles above Keene Valley the Ausable River has its source in two beautiful lakes which bear its name. At the head of the upper lake there is a large marsh, very wild and full of deer, and in the centre of the marsh is a small grassy meadow, nearly grown up with spruce and laurel. Most of the rarer species of diurnals were taken in this open spot of the wilderness, known as the " Marcy Marsh " from its being tra-versed by the trail to that peak. On the bare summits of Mt. Marcy and Mt. Haystack I have never seen any butterflies, although I searched for them twice. I am indebted to Mr. Wm. Beutenmuller of New York for the identification of most of. the Noctuidae. PAPILIONID.E. Papilio aslerias, rare in August. turnus, very common in June. I have seen 25 or 30 together at once ound a mud-puddle. Pieris rap&, very common in summer and autumn. oleracea, common in spring. Colias philodice, very common everywhere. Albinic females common in autumn. interior, very rare in July ; two specimens from Marcy Marsh, and one from summit of Mt. Baxter, near Keene Valley. NYMPHALID.K. Danais plexippus, rather common in autumn. Argynnis cybele, Generally common in autumn, but in 1901 I saw none. No larger than aphrodite. aphrodite, rather common in July and August.
