Abstract

The monthly evening meeting of the Fellows was held on Tuesday, tho
11th May, M. Allport, Esq., in the chair.

Proceedings include: discussions on the
existence of a second species of Kingfisher in Tasmania,
-Mr. Allport incidentally remarked that many of the Salpae from the
diaphanous nature of their outer covering, would form beautiful living
objects for low powers at one of the Society's microscopic meetings.
-Mr. M. Allport called attention to a branch of Gum (Eucalyptus sp.),
kindly forwarded by Lady Dry, the leaves of which were coated with a
purple powder, resolving itself, under the microscope,into myriads of eggs
of some insect, now rapidly hatching, and probably belonging to the
Aphides. Under the low powers of the instrument the brilliant colours
of the egg-cases elicited much admiration.
