Pipilo Clementae Excluded from Santa Cruz Island Avifauna.-After careful examination and comparison of measurements of a series of towhees from Santa Cruz Island, I am satisfied that this form is Pipilo maculatus megalonyx and not Piilo ’ ctement~, as heretofore supposed. In the specimens from San Clemente Island there seems to be a slight difference in the size of bill and feet. In coloration the difference is extremely slight, if any, compared with Pipdo maculatus megalonyx. However, my series from Clemente is too small to judge this from. There is no doubt, however, that the form found on Santa Cruz Island is not Pipilo clementz but P. wt. mexalonyx.-C. B. LINTON, Long Beach, California.
