One of the results incidental to the meeting of the British Association for the Advancement of Science at Dover in September last was a visit paid to Folkestone by the members of Section C (Geology). Among the ladies present was Miss Caroline Birley, well known both as a traveller and for the deep interest which she has always taken in palæontological research; she is also the owner of an excellent private museum of minerals and fossils, mostly collected by herself. Miss Birley was fortunate in obtaining from Mr. J. Griffiths, the resident geological collector, a small but well - preserved carapace of a Gault Crustacean, believed at the moment to be the usual Necrocarcinus Bechei (Deslongsch., sp.), a form about as abundant in that locality as the Palæocorystes Stokesii (Mantell, sp.). The specimen, enlarged twice natural size, is clearly depicted in the accompanying illustration in the text.
