Obtained by Donovan from the coast of Cornwall, where it is said to be provincially known by the name of Green-Fish. According to Mr. Yarrell, it appears also to have been met with on the Devonshire coast by Montagu. It is probably the L. Psittacus of Risso*, but Donovan's description is too imperfect to speak with certainty on this point.
