For the record

An article on the French elections misattributed several quotes to political analyst Virginie Martin. The remarks were actually made by political and policy analyst Marie-Cécile Naves. (“Mélenchon surge puts left in contention”, News, last week, page 23). Apologies.

We confused butterflies last week, using a picture of the great orange tip (Hebomoia glaucippe), a south-east Asian butterfly, twice as large as our intended subject, the UK’s native orange tip (Anthocharis cardamines). As readers pointed out, were the pictured butterfly to thrive in the UK we really would be in the grip of global warming (“Great moments from the ‘most exciting time in nature’s calendar’”, In Focus, last week, pages 28-29).

Garland Jeffreys’s new album is 14 Steps to Harlem, not, as we had it in “A brush with greatness” (Magazine, last week, page 33), 14 Steps to Heaven.

Apologies if we ruined your lunch last Sunday. Our recipe for a traditional Italian Easter roast with potatoes (Magazine, page 34) recommended initially setting the oven to 200C/gas mark 6 and cooking the dish for 90 minutes before increasing the temperature even further. We meant you should start at 120C/gas mark ½.
