Arthur W. Stelfox - Diary of hymenoptera, other insects, plants, etc., Vol. 14, September 1943 - August 1944
About the Project
Ready for another Arthur W. Stelfox challenge? This time his field diary takes us from September of 1943 through August of 1944 as he collects specimens in the vicinity of Dublin, Ireland (Phoenix Park, one of the largest urban parks in Europe, is shouted out—see if you can spot the mention!). While Stelfox's main focus is on the study and collection of Hymenoptera, a group that includes bees, ants, and wasps, observations on local flora and other insects are sprinkled throughout—as is his commentary on the weather. While the light pencil and slanted, unique handwriting look formidable, we are confident you and your fellow volunpeers are up to the task!
