Abstract of proceedings reports brief notes of meetings conducted through the year. A longer note is included of an exhibit of some specimens of an Ichneumon (species not determined), having a colour pattern identical with some very common Bracons (species not determined). Mr. Hardy now exhibited a
number of Ichneumons belonging to four definitely distinct
species, for each one of which there is a Bracon having
identical, or almost identical, colour patterns. Mr. Hardy also exhibited a further and unexpected case
of apparent mimicry in which these Eracons again form
the pattern. A Hemipteron, probably family Capsidae,
has the colour pattern identical with a further species of
this widely variable group of black winged Bracons.
