Mr. G. Okuyama in November, 1933 procured a swan on Hachijo Island, one of the Seven Islands of Izu and, it was identified by Mr. Tokutaro Momiyama (1939) as Cygnus cygnus (specimen no. 340033).
I have recently exmined this specimen and found out that it is Cygnus olor, not C. cygnus as formerly considered it to be. This fact constitutes the first record of the Mute Swan found in the Japanese Islands.
