The following paper was presented : — Catalogue of the Reptiles and Batrachians found in the Vicinity of Norway, Oxford Co., Me. By A. E. Verrill. The following catalogue is intended to afford some additional data concerning the geographical distribution of our animals; and since we have in Maine, as I have in another place shown,* at least in respect to the birds, two faunae, — the Canadian, in the northern and eastern parts of the State, and the Alleghanian, in the southern and central, — it is of great importance to ascertain •with the utmost care the exact range of all the species, and also their relative abundance at different places. In this list I have endeavored to embody all the facts of this kind ascertained from personal obser-vation, during a residence of several years, concerning the locality, adding in a few instances observations made by others, which are in each case acknowledged. It is not probable that any additional species will be found, except two or three Salamanders, and possibly another Hylodes; but several other species occur in the south-western part of the State, York and Cumberland Counties, such as the Black Snake (Basca-nion constrictor B. & G.), Box Turtle (Cistudo virginea), and a few more, which do not appear to extend so far northward as Norway.
