79. PLATYDESMA CAMPANULATA, H. Mann, l. c. p. 317. - Oahu, on the mountains behind Honolulu, at middle heights. — A small tree. Leaves 5 to 15 inches long. Flowers an inch long. (M. & B. 94.)

80. ZANTHOXYLUM KAVIENSE (Gray, l. c. p. 354 ; H. Mann, l. c. p. 318): “ inerme, glabrum ; foliis alternis pinnatis 3 – 5-foliolatis ; foliolis coriaceis ovalibus integerrimis haud punctatis; paniculis axillaribus compositis ; fructibus stipitatis ”;- floribus tetrameris ; calycis lobis ovato-subulatis petalis fl. masc. lanceolatis triplo, fl. fem. lineariligulatis quadruplo brevioribus ; antheris ovalibus ; ovario solitario. — Kauai. Hawaii. — The fruit has been described from the specimens of the South Pacific Exploring Expedition. I have described the flowers from a specimen, probably of the same species, collected on Hawaii by Remy, but differing in the thinner texture of the leaves, which appear with the flowers. Calyx four-lobed ; the lobes ovate-subulate, about three fourths of a line long, in the male flowers thrice shorter than the lanceolate petals : stamens four, a line in length ; filaments capillary; anthers oval. In the female flower the sepals are four times shorter than the linear-ligulate petals, which are imbricated in æstivation ; stamens reduced to four glands; ovary unilocular, stipitate; stigma globular. (Remy, 614.)

81. ZANTHOXYLUM MAVIENSE (H. Mann, 1. c. p. 319): inerme, pube tenuiter velutina cinereum ; foliis alternis 3-foliolatis ; foliolis coriaceis ovalibus (lateralibus basi hinc excisa valde inæquilateris) integerrimis haud punctatis ; paniculis axillaribus ; coccis solitariis estipitatis lunulato-ovoideis. — Maui. — The specimen is apparently from an unarmed tree, bearing mature fruit only; it is cinereous with a fine velutinous pubescence, especially on the under surface of the alternate trifoliolate leaves. Petioles fifteen to twenty lines long. Leaflets ovate, truncated at the base ; the two lateral ones unequal, the upper base being three lines shorter than the lower, two to two and a half inches long by fifteen to twenty lines wide. Panicle several-flowered. Carpel solitary, estipitate, four to five lines long, lunulate-ovoid, becoming two-valved; the endocarp adnate. Seed solitary, filling the cell. Known only from Remy's collection. (Remy, 615.)

82. ZANTHOXYLUM (BLACKBURNIA) DIPETALUM (H. Mann, l. c. p. 319): inerme, glabrum ; foliis alternis 3 - 9-foliolatis ; foliolis coriaceis oblongis vel ovatis integerrimis punctatis ; paniculis forum sterilium compositis ; petalis 2 ovalibus crassissimis æstivatione valvatis calyce 4-dentato quadruplo longioribus ; antheris oblongis : - flores fertiles

fructusque ignoti. — Oahu?- A tree about thirty feet high, entirely glabrous. The specimens furnish immature sterile flowers. Leaves alternate, 3 – 9-foliolate, petioled. Leaflets two to four inches long by seven to twenty lines wide, oblong or oblong-ovate, obtuse, coriaceous, punctate, pinnately veined, entire, equal at the base, and with one or two small (three to nine lines long) foliar bodies arising from just below the lower leaflets, which, were it not for their anomalous position, might be likened to large stipules. Panicles axillary or terminal, cymosely many-flowered, with a very thick and nodose peduncle and axis. Calyx small, less than a line long, four-lobed. Petals only two, oval, valvate in æstivation and remarkably thick, in the bud three or four lines long, probably caducous. Stamens four; filaments short, subulate ; anthers oblong. (Collected only by Hillebrand.)

Leaves palmately puro pinnately 3 - 5-foliolate : leaflets 3-5 inches long, 2-3 wide, the wper surface punctuated with black dots. The reticulations are much fubedded, and therefore not very conspicuous ; the two lower and

lateral leaflets are very small, about an inch long, and with the margins strongly revolute (perhaps a diseased state ?). Peduncles opposite the leaves, three to four inches long, and few- (to 8?) flowered. As the specimens are only in fruit the flowers are unknown, but the four very small and thick persistent sepals appear to have been slightly imbricated, and about a line long. Follicle quite woody, an inch long, and entirely filled by the very hard black seed, which seems to be inserted along the whole ventral suture, and is entirely without an arillus ! Cotyledons thick and fleshy, plano-convex. Radicle short, included, superior. - Only a single tree seen. (M. & B. 581.)
