Specimens listed in the catalogue that is an appendix to Parfitt's short article were collected in identified locations throughout Devon by a majority of those listed in the index. Edward Parfitt (1820-1893), naturalist, was born 17 Oct. 1820. His father was head gardener to Lord Hastings. Parfitt studied gardening under his father; then became successively gardener to a number of Norfolk estates, and subsequently went on a voyage for scientific purposes. He was wrecked near the Cape of Good Hope, and an enforced stay in the colony intensified his taste for botany and entomology. Returning to England, he became in 1848 gardener to John Milford, Coaver House, Exeter. In 1859 he was appointed curator to the Archæological and Natural History Society of Somerset. He died 15 Jan. 1893. Parfitt contributed numerous papers to the 'Transactions' of the Devonshire Association, 'Annals and Magazine of Natural History,' 'Entomological Magazine,' 'Naturalist,' and 'Transactions' of the Royal Microscopical Society.
