Up towards Carn Llidi, the carpet effect of the golden Gorse (Ulex europaens) and Ling (Calluna vulgaris) command admiration. Here too can be found the woolly-stemmed Cudweed (Filago germanica), Carline Thistle (Carlina vulgaris), and Sherardia arvensis -this latter is more common in cultivated fields. A rather interesting plant, Sea Milk Wort (Glaux Maritima) can be found with its tough root-stock wedged amongst the shingle at Porth Melgan. The five-lobed bell-shaped flowers are a flesh colour spotted with crimson, a pleasing contrast to its grey sur- roundings. A ramble on the Moors is rewarding. Here conditions favour Carex, Juncus, a few Bryophytes, Equisetum, Reed Mace (Typha latifolia), Marsh Cinquefoil (Potentilla palustris), Bog Bean (Meny- anthes trifoliata), Knotted Pearlwort (Sagina nodosa), Burr Marigold (Bidens tripartita), Bog Asphodel (Narthecium ossifragum). Erica and various orchids, to mention but a few interesting species, but what appear to be the most exciting finds "are the dimunitive pale yellow Cicendia filiformis and the minute pink bells of Bog Pimpernel (Anagallis tenella). Crow garlic (Allium vineale) is well established in several localities. Great Mullein (Verbascum thapsis) often grows to a height of 3 feet in suitable habitats, and Sweet Cicely (Myrrhis odorata), its lacy-patterned, sweetly scented umbels lasting for several weeks is common on waste ground around the City.

The bug-hunter is, to the layman, anybody who takes an interest in any class of insect. Probably there are not more than a dozen real bug-hunters, or students of the half-winged insects or plant-bugs,' in Britain today. In Wales, there has been very little work done in this Order Hemiptera-Heterophera, as may be evidenced by the fact that the latest County Census of the known 507 British species lists only 274 species from Glamorgan, while Cardigan and Montgomery are credited with only 9 and 3 species respectively. The writer has increased the Cardigan list to 63 by only a few scattered hours' searching during the past two years. In this country these bugs are of practically no economic importance, though hops and fruit may suffer some damage occasion- ally. They are not obtrusive some are beautifully built some are fairly coloured but most are small and dingy or are so coloured as to tone in closely with the plants on which they feed. In habits they range from sluggish to extremely active runners, fliers or swimmers from feeders on plant juices to blood suckers of man,
