1. Eleocharis gracilis R. Br.
Mr. S. Blake, of the University of Queensland, who has kindly examined my specimens, finds that there is no specific difference between the E. cunninghamii Boeck. of New Zealand and the E. gracilis R. Br. of Australia. In both countries this species shows considerable habitat modifications, and the varietal names so far applied are of very doubtful status.
2. Eleocharis pusilla R. Br.
E. acicularis R. Br. was admitted to the New Zealand flora by Cheeseman (1925, p. 217) on immature specimens collected by Petrie at Lake Te Anau. He remarks: “Mr. C. B. Clarke, who has examined them, states that he is satisfied that they belong to the small group consisting of E. acicularis and a very few closely allied species, and most probably to E. acicularis itself.” Mr. Blake places specimens sent by me under E. pusilla R. Br. It is represented in the herbarium of the Plant Research Bureau, Wellington, by specimens from: Lake Taupo (Volcanic Plateau Bot. Dist.) at water's edge, K. W. Allison!; Foxton (Ruahine-Cook Bot. Dist.) in damp sand hollows among dunes, V. D. Zotov!; Lake Tekapo (Eastern South Island Bot. Dist.), margins of tarns and moraine.
3. Gaultheria colensoi Hook. f.
This species was rightly revived by Burtt and Hill (1935, p. 620). The stations given by them are: base of Mount Tongariro, near Lake Rotoaira, and Mount Ruapehu. Mr. N. Elder, who has devoted great attention to the Kaimanawa and adjacent ranges, found it on the Kaweka Range (at 900-1,200 m.), Black Birch Range (at 1,100 m.), and the southern Kaimanawas (at 1,370 m. and more).He finds that it usually occurs on rocky or shingly faces, flowering in December or January.
4. Hebe acutiflora (Benth.) Ckn.
Mr. K. W. Sexton has forwarded excellent specimens of this, well matching the type from Kerikeri, collected near Herekino, also in the North Auckland Bot. Dist.
5. Isolepis crassiusculus Hook, f.
Mr. Blake so identifies specimens, in ripe fruit, collected by me in bogs above the forest-line on Mount Hauhungatahi (Volcanic Plateau Bot. Dist.). Possibly some of the records of I. lenticularis R. Br. really referred to this species. Mr. A. L. Poole has recently collected the same species on the Kaimanawas.
6. Poa lindsayi Hook. f.
Near Lake Taupo (Volcanic Plateau Bot. Dist.), K. W. Allison! Previously reported for North Island only from the Ruataniwha Plains (Ruahine-Cook Bot. Dist.).
7. Triodia pumila (T. Kirk) Hack. ex Cheesem.
Near Lake Taupo, K. W. Allison! Cheeseman (1925, p. 182) gives only South Island stations.
