Specimens of a Lichen collected on the Island of Kapiti, where it is abundant, with samples of dyes made from it were exhibited by Mr. W. H. Levin, M.H.R.

The Lichen belongs to the genus Leuconora, which was formerly used as a dye-stuff under the name of Archil, till displaced by the less fugitive Aniline dyes.
