4 inches long, and an inch wide or less, 3 - 5 nerved, the upper diminished into small subulate bract-like 3-nerred leaves, only three fourths of an inch long, and a line and a half wide. The upright stem bearing a compact globose thyrsus of an inch in diameter (rarely with two lateral ones), composed of numerous many-flowered short cymules. Sepals ovate, obtuse, nerved below the middle, a line and a half long, shorter than the ovate-lanceolate capsule. Staminodia very short, blunt, entire, about the length of the stamens. Seeds few, large for the section, and tuberculate-roughened. (M. & B. 580; Remy, 552.)

35. SCHIEDEA VISCOSA (H. Mann, l. c. p. 311): decumbens, suffruticosa, glanduloso-pubescens ; ramis adsurgentibus foliosis apice laxe 2-6-floribus; foliis breviter oblongis utrinque acutissimis petiolatis trinervatis demum glabratis ; sepalis ovatis acuminatis plurinerviis capsulam 7-valvem superantibus ; filamentis calyce brevioribus staminodia late ovata obtusa 3-plo superantibus, iis staminodiorum oppositis latioribus ; seminibus plurimis tuberculato-rugulosis. — At three thousand feet elevation, on the mountains of Waimea, Kauai. - This species differs so entirely in its aspect from the rest of the genus, in its almost trailing manner of growth, and in its peculiarly nerved leaves and large flowers (nearly half an inch long, forming a comparatively simple cyme), as to form quite a distinct section. Plant suffruticose, decumbent and spreading with branches 2 or 3 feet long, sending up suberect flowering stems 8 to 12 inches high. Whole plant covered with a glandular pubescence, which is viscous, especially on the peduncles and pedicels. Leaves 14 - 13 inches long, 4-5 lines wide, evenly tapering at each end to a sharp point, below into a margined petiole 2 lines long, becoming glabrate on the upper surface with age, nerved with three well-marked veins running from the base to the apex. The peduncled terminal cymes, composed of 2 - 6 flowers on pedicels about 6 lines long, arising from the axils of small (6 lines long and 14 line wide) floral leaves. The pubescent calyx 5 – 6 lines long, of five subpetaloid ovate-acuminate many-nerved sepals, which enclose and surpass in length the ovate-lanceolate 7-valved capsule. Staminodia widely ovate, obtuse, small in proportion to the size of the flower, a line long and nearly as wide at the base. Stamens 10; those opposite the sepals inserted with the staminodia, the filaments dilated subulate ; those alternate narrowly subulate and a little shorter. Styles 7, short at first and stigmatose all round, but becoming longer with age. Seeds borne on a central placenta, very numerous, tuberculate-roughened with short obtuse points. (M. & B. 579.)

Ovarium uniloculare; ovulis plurimis columellæ centrali affixis: styli 4-7, breviter filiformes, apice intus stigmatosi. Capsula 4-7-valvis, polysperma. Semina estrophiolata. — Frutex Sandwicensis, orgyalis, fere glaber; ramis foliosis ; foliis oppositis amplis ovatis ovalibusque cuspidato-acuminatis basi in petiolum subito angustatis eximie trinervatis subeveniis ; cymis plurifloribus pedunculatis ex axillis superioribus, floribus subglobosis in pedicellis filiformibus pendulis.
