It is to be regretted that the author did not examine the types in the herbaria of the British Museum and Kew ; had he done so, the synonymy might have been made much more correct, and several doubtful species might have been cleared up, such as Homa Joniena major, minor, and rostratum, Griff, (published by a misprint as 11. Some important generic changes are made; thus Thomsoma and Staurostigma, being older names, are adopted in place of Pythoniiuu and Asterostigma ; Bracht/sjiatha and Gonophattw are reduced to sections of the genus Amorphophcdlus ; Leptopstion, Cylleniuui, and Ischarum to sections of the genus Biarum ; Tap'nwcurpus and Calyptrocorym to Therio- phonum; and Heterostalis to a section of Typhonium. ; uorsica, Jiralik 503 ; France, many collectors ; Geneva Boissior Hor Tehl 1 - 11 V Heidelb Urg ' V ? * g Ured ^ Seichenbach, and yracilis is a sia U ^k^^! BECENT ADDITIONS TO THE MOSS-FLOBA OF THE WEST BIDING.— SUPPLEMENTARY LIST. Scliott, in his ' Prodromus ' (published in 18G0), enumerates over 960 species ; since then a large number of others have been described, yet the total number of species enumerated by Engler is only 800, including 31 here described for the first time; he has reduced many of Schott's species to synonyms without having seen the types, not having consulted the English herbaria, in which a large number of Schott's types are preserved : there is no statement as to what herbaria have been seen by him, so that it is difficult to know to what extent the descriptions have been made from authentic specimens. It is evident that the author has examined a large number of specimens, and it is to be hoped that the American representa- tives of this too-much neglected group will continue to receive his attention.
