The following paper was read by title :

A LIST OF PLANTS COLLECTED BY MISS MARY B. CROFT, 1884-
'86, AT SAN DIEGO, TEXAS, NEAR
THE BIO DULCE, BY N. L.

The species here enumerated were collected by Miss Croft
dnring the years 1884-1886 and sent to Dr. Busby for deter-
mination. His absence in South America has prevented their
examination until the present time.

BANUNCULACEiE.

19. Anemone decapetala, L., var. heterophylla (Nutt.)
{A. heterophylla, Nutt.^ mss.; Wood). We are unable to find
any characters which would entitle tnis plant to specific rank.
Indeed, our specimens show every gradation in leaf-form
from the linear lobes of the typical A. decapetala to the
nearly entire ones of the variety. A specimen collected by
Merrill, in Bobertson Co., Texas,* has both forms on the same
plant. As here recognized, the variety extends east into Ala-
bama (Buckley) and occurs also in South America, Guming^s
specimens from Valparaiso in Herb. Torrey consisting of both
type and variety.

New or Noteworthy North American Phanerogams.— I.

Aquilegia Canadensis^ L., var. FLAVIFLORA, n. var. {A, flavi-
flora, Tenney, Amer. Nat, i., 389). On the 15th of May, 1866,
Prof. Sanborn Tenney, of Vassar College, found a yellow-flow-
ered Columbine on the high ground west of the Hudson, and
opposite the city of Poughkeepsie, which he described in the
first volume of the American Naturalist as Aquilegia flavijlora.
On May 17th of the succeeding year he collected the same vari-
ety near the same place, and proposed to try to raise the plant
from the seed. Of his farther observations I find no record.

On May 24, 1885, during a Club Field Excursion at Sea-
bright, Monmouth County, New Jersey, the plant was found in
considerable abundance on the south bank of the Navesink
River, along the top of a bluff some twenty feet above the water
level. It grew there with the ordinary red-flowered, typical form,
with which its showy flowers formed a marked and beautiful con-
trast, both being remarkably luxuriant. Associated with them
was Cerastium arvense^ L., and near by grew Smilacina stellata^
Desf , neither of which had been noted so far south along the
coast I removed a plant of the yellow Aquilegia to a gardea
where it has since bloomed every year, maintaining its character.
I have not been able to detect any other differences between it
and the type except that the whole plant is of a light yellowish
green instead of the usual reddish purple hue of the young plants
of the ordinary form.

Cerastium Texanum, n. sp. Stem slender, 15-20 cm. high^
pilose, especially towards the base, branching dichotomously

above ; leaves two to four pairs on the lower part of the stem,
spatulate with an acute apex, sparingly pilose on both surfaces,
8- 1 5 mm. long, 3-4 mm. wide; flowers few, small, terminating
the branches; calyx lobes ovate, acute, 4-5 mm. long, nerved,
minutely hairy ; petals apparently linear, slightly longer; capsule
about 7 mm. long, its ten teeth revolute ; seeds numerous, angu-
lar, roughened with minute points.

Habitat: " Hills, Blanco, March, April," C. Wright, Mexican
Boundary Survey Collections, No. 69.

This very distinct species is represented in the Torrey Herba-
rium by half a dozen fragments, and does not appear to have
been distributed. It adds another member to the section Strepto^
carpi, and seems nearest to C. pilosum,

Astilbe decandra, D. Don, var. crenatiloba, n. var. Leaf-
lets obtuse, crenate, mucronate, the upper one somewhat three-
lobed; follicles about 2 mm. long, ovate; calyx lobes obtuse.
Collected on the slope of Roan Mt, East Tennessee, along Ae
trail from " Cloudland " to the Roan Mt. station of the E. T. &
W. N. C. R. R.

The plant differs markedly from the typical Astilbe decandra
in its shorter and stouter pods and blunt crenate leaves. It may
be more than a mere variety, but I do not feel warranted in de-
scribing it as a species. The fact of collection is noted in this
