R. rhipipht/lliis, Bast in Boreau, Fl. Cent. Fr. ed. 3. vol. ii. p. 11 (1857).

France. A specimen with very few submersed leaves, and with only 3-5 veins on the petals, from Leipzi<^; in Hb. Kew, labelled R. aquatiUs, var. micranthiis, probably is a state of this form, also some British speci- men ; but I have not seen an authentic specimen.


R. radians, Revel in Act. Soc. Linn. Bord. vol. xix. p. 114, f. (1853). R. heterophyllus, Bab. part (1855).

Occurs in Scandinavia, Scotland, England, Ireland, France, Switzer- land, Spain (weak state, with leaves approaching those oi Jlonbundus), etc. Not uncommon, 1 believe, in the North of England. I have it from Lancashire, Staffordshire, and Cambridge.


R. Godronii, Gren. in Schultz Arch. pp. 169, 173 (name only), (1850). R. aquutilis, /3. lirevifolius, Kossmann, Beitr. Kenntn. Wasserhahn, p. 58 (1854).

Occurs in England (Warwickshire !) and France, and probably else- where. Professor Babington, in 1855, united this form with R. Drouetii, and now he unites it with R. trkliophyllus. Floating leaves tripartite with cuneate and incise or crenate lobes, membranous and cjuite glabrous, or occasionally with a few scattered weak appvessed hairs beneath; flowers usually smaller than in radians ; subm.ersed leaves finely capillary ; carpels more or less hispid; fruit-receptacle rounded and hairy.
