Though variable in the leaves, and in a lesser degree in the flowers, this is a well-marked species, at once recognized wherever seen in the mountain forests which it inhabits, and of which it at times almost forms a part, as it is a large, much-branched shrub or small tree, 10 to 30 feet high.

283. “BRIGHAMIA INSIGINIS.— Molokai. (W: T. Brigham.) Kauai or Niihau. (Remy, 309ter.) — Stem 5 to 18 feet high. Leaves (in the specimens) only 6 or 8 inches long, contracted at the base into a very short petiole, evidently more or less fleshy, and forming a close tuft at the summit of the columnar stem. Peduncles stout and manifestly fleshy, 3 to 5 inches long; the thick ascending pedicels half an inch or an inch long: bracts deciduous. Calyx-teeth much shorter than the tube, oblong-linear, slightly accrescent and persistent on the ripe fruit collected by Mr. Brigham, deciduous from that of Remy's specimen. Corolla showy, white with a tinge of cream-color; the rather slender tube about 4 inches long, slightly incurved; the 5 lobes when expanded about an inch long, thickish, valvate in æstivation, with the pointed tips inflexed, in equality of size and position apparently as nearly regular as in Isotoma, but the two anterior lobes separated from

each other and from the lateral ones by sinuses, forming narrow claws of nearly the same length as the lobe. The anther-tube half an inch long, scarcely projecting beyond the cleft of the corolla, straight, with the apex abruptly curved toward the upper side of the flower, and tipped with a uniform tuft of beard, otherwise glabrous. Stigma neither bearded nor indusiate, of two small and flat rounded lobes. Ovary acutely and nearly equably 10-ribbed. Fruit three fourths of an inch long, fleshy-coriaceous, 10-ribbed, evidently capsular; each cell opening by two equidistant, longitudinal, intercostal chinks or clefts extending from just below the apex to the base. Seeds very numerous, half a line long. — Described from a specimen in Remy's collection, communicated by the Paris Museum, and from flowers and fruits collected by Mr. Brigham, and preserved in alcohol. — This very interesting addition to the peculiar Lobeliaceæ of the Sandwich Islands, I have dedicated to Mr. Mann's companion in Hawaiian exploration, William T. BRIGHAM, Esq., who not only, after M. Remy, discovered it, and brought the materials needful to complete its characters, but who has paid particular attention to this group of plants, collecting specimens, and especially making sketches of the arborescent species he met with. The fruit of my specimen from Remy would rather be thought to be baccate; but Mr. Brigham's prove it to be capsular. The resemblance of our plant to Isotoma is mainly in the great length and general form of the corolla. But its true relationship is evidently with the unfortunately little-known Sclerotheca arborea, A. DC. (Lobelia arborea, Forst.) of Tahiti. In that, however, so far as is made out, the corolla is no longer than the foliaceous calyx-lobes, and cleft to the base, and the capsule opens at the vertex by two round pores. The oneflowered peduncle is of small moment, as it is bibracteate; and I suppose it is not certain that the flower is resupinate after the manner of the order, although so described by De Candolle. In the present plant there is no torsion of the pedicel, and the odd sepal is anterior. Unless future discoveries invalidate the characters, Brighamia and Sclerotheca must surely be regarded as distinct, related genera.” A. Gray, mss.

284. LOBELIA MACROSTACHYS, Hook. & Arn. I. c. p. 88; Gaud. Bot. Voy. Bonite, t. 46; Gray, l. c. p. 150. A shrub with an upright simple stem, 4 to 8 feet high, dividing at the top into a crown of flowering branches, spreading like the arms of a chandelier. When the light pink flowers have expanded, it is an exceedingly showy plant. (M. & B. 463.)
