  • Olearia forsteri, Hook. f. Near Oamaru : R. Kidd !

  • Celmisia lindsayi, Hook. f. The reputed Lake Harris station for this fine plant is very doubtful indeed, the plant being purely littoral. In “crevices of the trap rocks at the Nuggets;” the specimens are small, sometimes not more than 3in.—4in. high, but on the tops of the cliffs at the back of the pilot's house, Catlin's River, it forms huge masses 6ft.—8ft. in diameter or more, with the branches stout and woody at the base. Probably common on the north side of Foveaux Strait. One of the most beautiful species of the genus.

  • Abrotanella linearis, Bergg. Port Pegasus : T. K.

  • Cotula traillii, T. Kirk. Stewart Island : T. K.

– 539 –
  • Euphrasia repena, Hook. f. Bluff Island: Lyall. Oreti River, T. K. Port Pegasus, T. K.

  • Utricularia monanthos, Hook. f. Stewart Island. Doubtless the U. colensoi of Mr. Petrie's list, due to a clerical error.

  • Teucridium parviflorum, Hook. f. Water of Leith, near Dunedin : T. K.

  • Plants Erroneously Recorded By Various Authors As Having Been Collected in the Otago District.

  • Ranunculus areolatus, Petrie.—Scraps of the Scandinavian R. pygmæus, Wahl. (mixed with fragments of R. rivularis, Banks and Sol.), said to have been collected at Lake Wakatipu, were given to Mr. Petrie, who described them under this name.

  • Carmichaelia australis, R. Br.—Not found south of the Marlborough district.

  • Carmichaelia odorata, Col. Some other species must have been mistaken for this.

  • Metrosideros scandens, Banks and Sol.—Included in Buchanan's list, but has not been seen in Otago of late years, although reported from the Auckland Islands.

  • Azorella reniformis, Benth. and Hook. f.—I am indebted to Mr. Petrie for specimens of the Otago plant so named by him, which must be referred to A. haastii, Hook. f. The stipules of the Otago plant are ciliate, while those of A. reniformis are acute, and quite entire; the fruits of A. haastii are usually shorter than the pedicels, while those of A. reniformis usually exceed the pedicels. I fell into exactly the same mistake with a form of A. haastii from the Spencer Mountains.

  • Ligusticum acutifolium, T. Kirk.—This has only been found on the Snares, which are outside the district.

  • Pseudopanax lessonii, C. Koch.—Buchanan's specimen, named Panax lessonii in the “Herbarium of the Otago Museum,” is a narrow-leafed form of Panax colensoi, Hook. f.

  • Veronica carnea, J. B. Armst.—A garden plant of unknown origin, certainly not indigenous in New Zealand.

  • pimelea urvilleana, A. Rich.—Probably a clerical error.

  • Libocedrus doniana, Endlich.—Evidently a slip of the pen for L. bidwillii, Hook.f.

  • Potamogeton heterophyllus, Schreb.—The name occurs in Lindsay's list, the young state of P. cheesemanii having been mistaken for it.

  • Carex neesiana, Endlich.—Has not been found in New Zealand, C. solandri being usually mistaken for it.

  • Stipa teretifolia, Steudel. (Dichelachne stipoides, Hook. f.).— Doubtless a clerical error, as the plant is not found south of Poverty Bay.
