From 2 batches of [[underlined]] Apanteles [[/underlined]] (White) cocoons found beside  dead [[underlined]] aurinia [[/underlined]] larvae in marsh - specimens of [[underlined]] Ap. melitaearum [[/underlined]] Wilkinson emerged from 23.5.1934 onwards : examined by D.W. Wilkinson in Oct 1936 & made co-types of his n. sp. A.W.S. 24.1036.

During June 1934 two unlabelled cocoons, which I am certain I collected in Duncarron district, Co. WX on above trip, produced the following :-
[[underlined]] Aphidius [[/underlined]] [[male symbol]] from Aphid on head of grass.
[[underlined]] Hemiteles [[/underlined]] areator ? [[male symbol]] from cocoon of Campoplegid? [[underlined]] A.W.S. [[/underlined]]

22nd May 1934, evening 6.0 - 7.0 PM.
Garden at 14 Clareville Road, Harold's Cross, Co. DU.
[[underlined]] Homocidus ornatus [[/underlined]], var [[underlined]] deplanatus [[/underlined]] ? 1 [[female symbol]] (first [[insertion]] ^ ex. [[/insertion]] taken in garden 1934) has the apically converging keals on 1st segment, supposed to distinguish [[underlined]] deplanatus [[/underlined]] from [[underlined]] ornatus [[/underlined]]; but if this [[female symbol]] is the real [[underlined]] deplanatus [[/underlined]] 
Later: this [[female symbol]] is not the same as the Haliday [[female symbol]] & is certainly only a form of [[underlined]] ornatus [[/underlined]] : the Hal [[female symbol]] in museum, may be distinct. It has black antennae smoother 2nd segment, white spot on face &c. AWS. 21.10.34
then I agree with authors who lump it with [[underlined]] ornatus [[/underlined]] AWS. 13.10.34.
[[underlined]] H. cinctus [[/underlined]] 1 [[female symbol], abd: almost black. 
[[underlined]] Angitia [[/underlined]] 1 [[female symbol]]. [[underlined]] Diaparius [[/underlined]] ?
