BEPORT OF THE BOTANICAL EXCIIANGR CLUB. 185

Riimex ? " Crook of Devon, Kinross and Perth." — J. Boswkll Syme. I have sent a few specimens of a Rnuu-x which is a puzzle to me. It grows in the same stations as R. conspcrsus, but is less abuii'lat\t. The stems are 18 inches to 3 feet hit^'h ; the root leaves narrowly oblong, scarcely cordate at the base, and subacule ; the panicle is very similar to that of R. obtiisifoUns, but the enlarged petals, which are of a brilliant red, are smaller, more deltoid, and with shorter teeth. It seems inter- mediate between R. ohtmifuliiis and the supposed hybrid sant by me last year.

Asnrum enropanin (L.). " Deerfold Poorest, Herefordshire. The spe- cimens are from the locality communicated to Mr. Britten by Dr. Bull, and mentioned in the ' Journal of Botany ' for 1870, p. 161." — AuGUSTiN Ley.

Eiiphorhia Laihyrh. "The locality, at Breinton, Herefor Ishire, for this plant is the side of a steep wooded bank, where it has been fully established for some years, and has the appearance of bein.; natural. There are, however, gardens and houses within a short diitance." — AuGUSTiN Ley.

Narcissus major. Curt. "Thickets, Penygraig rocks, Glyn, Llangollen, Denbighshire." — Elizabeth Jones.

Allinm car'mntnm, Linn., Pries, non Smith. Banks of the Tay below Perth (Preu. Stratton and J. Boswell Syme) ; and banks of the Tay at Seggieden, Perth. — H. M. Drummond Hat. The plant gr )ws in the greatest profusion along the banks of the Tay, especially a little above the first turnpike-gate on the Dundee Road, more than a mile below Perth Bridge. Seggieden, from whence specimens are sent by Colonel Drum- mond Hay, is, I believe, about three miles below Perth Bridge. The plant is certainly well naturalized on the banks of the Tay, if it be not native. Dr Hooker, in the ' Student's Flora,' admits it as a nutive, on the faith of the Newark station, where, however, it appears to be confined to a single patch.

Alli.nin paradoxnm, Don. " Bienny Crag, Linlithgowshire. In very large quantity, and has spread very much within the last few years." — A. Craig Christfe.

Malanthcmum blfoUnm, DC. " Wood, Linlithgowshire. Probably in- troduced, but if so it must have been a long time ago, as it is well esta- blished, and in quantity." — A. Craig Christie.

Bntomus mithdlatns, Linn. " Abundant in a tidal marsh on the Tay, about four miles below Perth." — John Sim. Mr. Sim states that it was discovered in this station in 1869, by Colonel Drummond Hay. In the April number of the ' Scottish Naturalist,' p. 59, Dr. Buchanan White suggests that it is " possibly a colony from Loch Cluny, where the Bidomus occurs as an introduced plant."

Potamo(j('lon niU'.ns, \\ eber. A specimen sent by Dr. Roy adhering to living plants of Cirex Walsoni, from the river Don, Aberdeenshire.

Junciis h'ujhuais, Linn. " Isle of Skye, luveruess-shire." — M. A. Laavson. Profi'ssor Lawson is the first botanist who has fouiul' this plant in the west of Scotland.

SrirpuH Huifjlumis, Link. '•Sandhills near Deal, Kent." — J. P. Duthie. New to province 3.

S. parvidns, Rom. and Sehultes. "Near Studland, Dorset." — J. C. Mansel (Journ. of Bot. VIII. p. 290). Mr. H. C. AVatson seids some specimens collected by Mr. Mausel in tliis station.
