AN INTERESTING WAIF. In some interesting notes contributed to the Zoologist, Dr. James Clark points out that nowhere probably in Great Britain are the conditions so favourable for abundance and variety of crustacean life a-s on the coast of Cornwall. And among the numerous species there found, none, perhaps, are of greater interest than those which appear from time to time as waifs and strays from nther parts. Among these casual visitors Dr. Clark notes the curious little gulf-weed crab (Planus minutus). This species has its head- quarters, and breeds among the drift weed of the Sargasso Sea. The Gulf Stream occasion- ally carries it to our shores. It is usually found on drift timber covered with barnacles. Such casual drifting illustrates how a sptJcie" may extend its geographical range, but it does not appear that the Cornish waters are suitable for the gulf-weed crab.
