MIMULUS BOLANDERI: tenuiter viscoso-pubescens ; caule e radice annua gracili simplicissimo (semi- vel subpedali) stricto a basi fere florifero; foliis oblongo- seu ovato-lanceolatis sessilibus fere integerrimis parvis (lin. 7 - 9 longis); floribus subsessilibus ; calycis ovati plicati dentibus inæqualibus, postico dimidio longiore corolla (ut videtur rosea limbo brevi) paullo breviore ; capsula subulato-fusiformi. — Dry hillsides, at Clark's Ranch, Mariposa Co., Bolander. Corolla about 9 lines long, with included tube, funnel-form throat, and apparently very short ascending lobes. Calyx-teeth almost as in M. brevipes, but rather broader. Nearly allied to that species, but apparently distinct. It begins to flower, like an Eunanus, from the axils of the lower leaves.

EUNANUS COULTERI, Benth., Gray in Bot. Whippl. p. 64 (120), var. ANGUSTATUS : tubo corollæ sesqui – bipollicaris calycem sexies ad octies, folia linearia triplo quaduplove excedente. — Placer and Plumas Counties, Rattan, Bolander.

Corolla tubulosa, sursum leviter ampliata : labia brevia, fere semper æquilonga, inferius latum obtusissime 3-crenulatum : galea recta, apice breviter quasi uncinata. Stamina Orthocarpi. Antheræ loculi aut piloso-ciliati aut basi apiceque barbulati. Stylus apice sæpius uncinato-inflexus, sub stigmate integerrimo terminali incrassatus. Ovula plura, adscendentia, fere orthotropa, apice rostellata seu apiculata, rostello mox inflexo, vel campylotropo-reniformia. Capsula compressa, loculicida. Semina pauciuscula vel plura, nucleo ratione testæ parva, angusta, subrecta, apiculata : radicula supera.— Herbæ annuæ, ramosæ, angustifoliæ, floribus apice ramorum capitatim spicatim aut paniculatim congestis flavidis vel sordidopurpurascentibus.

$ 1. ADENOSTEGIA. Anthela composita. Flores sæpe breviter pedicellati, 2 – 4-bracteolati, calyce diphyllo instructi, phyllo vel sepalo antico æstivatione exteriore. Folia floralia et bracteæ apice (C. laxifloro excepto) sæpissime truncatæ retusæ vel subtridentatæ callo glandulæformi pl. m. manifesto instructæ.

* Calyx phyllo antico sub-5-nervi, postico subscarioso binervi bifido. Stamina 2: filamenta fere glabra : antheræ biloculares. Folia floralia trifida vel subpinnatifida.

CordylanTHUS CAPITATUS, Nutt. Appears to have been found only by Nuttall. I possess a short flowering branch, on which I can confirm the characters assigned by Bentham, and add that the posterior division of the calyx is only 2-nerved (the nerves distant and running to the apex of the lobes), as in no other known species. Apparently the inflorescence is hardly as much capitate as in the next.

** Calyx phyllis 5 – 6-nervibus, postico etiam integerrimo vel emarginato. Stamina 4: filamenta pl. m. villosa : antheræ omnes biloculares. Folia angusto-linearia seu filiformia,

+ Superiora et floralia 3 – 5-fida, cum ramis minutim scabro- vel subglanduloso-puberula.

CORDYLANTIUS FILIFOLIUS, Nutt., Benth. (Adenostegia rigida, Benth. olim.) Folia caulina inferiora integerrima ; floralia parce hispida præsertim ad margines, basi subcuneata, segmentis apice pl. m. dilatatis. Flores capitato-conferti. Calycis phylla oblonga obtusa. I have no Nuttallian specimen of this, but one from Douglas and from other collections. I possess a mere fragment of C. ramosus, Nutt., which I suppose to be a slender and somewhat canescent form of the present species.

CORDYLANTHUS Wrightu, Gray in Bot. Mex. Bound. p. 120. Folia omnia quæ exstant 3 - 5-partita, filiformia ; Aoralia conformia, nec hispida. Flores pauci ad apice ramorum, pollicares: calycis phylla lanceolata. — Dr. Parry has recently collected this in New Mexico; the flowers evidently purple or purplish.

++ Folia fere semper etiam floralia integerrima. Flores subpaniculati.

CORDYLANTHUS PILOSUs : elatus (3 - 4-pedalis), pilis mollibus patentibus ut videtur subviscidis cinereus ; foliis linearibus, superioribus plerumque apice truncato-emarginatis vel dilatato-trilobulatis ; foribus confertis demum furcato-paniculatis; calycis phyllis lanceolato-oblongis. - Dry soil, near San José, Brewer: Oakland hills, Bolander: Upper Sacramento, Dr. Newberry. — Var. BOLANDERI : inferne viscosoglandulosus, parce seu vix pilosus ; floribus laxius paniculatis ; foliis



raro truncato-emarginatis, floralibus calycibusque longe laxeque villosis. — Coll. Bolander, probably not far from San Francisco. — Flowers about the size of those of C. filifolius. Seeds orthotropous, ovate-oblong, with a hooked point or beak, the testa apparently fleshy and smooth.

CORDYLANTHUS TENUIS : effuse paniculatus, bipedalis, subtilissime puberulus, fere glaber ; ramulis filiformibus ; foliis angusto- seu filiformilinearibus, floralibus apice calloso raro bidenticulatis vel emarginatis ; foribus mox sparsis; calycis phyllis oblongo-lanceolatis. — Dry sandy soil near Lake Tahoe, Nevada, Brewer, Dr. C. L. Anderson. Near Ostrander's, above Yosemite Valley, Bolander. – Flowers 6 to 8 lines long, purplish and yellowish, scattered on the developed filiform branches. Seeds (immature) resembling those of the foregoing species, semi-ovate with a recurved beak, smooth.

*** Calyx phyllis utrisque 6-nervibus, postico apice emarginatobifido. Corolla profundius bilabiata, labio inferiori galea dimidio breviore. Stamina 4: antheræ omnes uniloculares, loculo inferiori aut abortivo aut præsertim in stam. breviorum plane nullo : filamenta villosula. Folia brevia, linearia, conformia, fere semper integerrima.

CORDYLANTHUS LAXIFLORUS, Gray, in Bot. Mex. Bound. I. c. — The flowers are said to be “ bright yellow.”

§ 2. HEMISTEGIA. Flores ebracteolati, in spicam simplicem quandoque ramosam congesti, singuli in axilla bracteæ amplexantis sessiles, calyce monophyllo (apice bidentato) instructi, sepalo seu phyllo erga bracteam deficiente. Filamenta glabra : antheræ loculi basi tantum ciliolati seu barbulati. — Eglandulosa, subviscosæ, spithamæi ad pedalem.

* Folia, etiam floralia seu bracteæ, integerrima. Stamina 4, longiorum antheris bilocularibus, breviorum loculo unico parvo (superiore deficiente). Semina rostellata, testa lævi ?

CORDYLANTHUS MARITIMUS, Nutt. : subpubescens, pallidus ; foliis linearibus seu lineari-lanceolatis glabratis plerisque obtusis patentibus ; spica brevi simplici; filamentis valde inæqualibus. — Salt marshes along the coast from San Francisco to San Diego.

CORDYLANTHUS CANESCENS : pube brevi molli cinereus ; caule erecto pedali ; foliis lanceolato-linearibus acutis suberectis ; bracteis lanceolatis; spica seu capitulo paucifloro; floribus purpurascentibus. — Near Carson City, Nevada, Dr. C. L. Anderson. At Lake Washoe in the same district, Dr. Torrey.

** Folia caulina integerrima, floralia seu bracteæ latiora sæpius incisa. Stamina 2. Semina obtusa : testa favoso-reticulata.

CORDYLANTHUS MOLLIS : laxe subhirsuto-villosus ; caule ramisque diffusis ; foliis caulinis linearibus brevibus ; bracteis oblongis inciso 2 - 3-dentatis vel integris corolla luteo-alba paullo brevioribus ; spicis nunc ramosis. — Mare Island, Bay of San Francisco, Charles Wright, in N. Pacif. Expl. Expedition, November, 1855. No one else seems to have met with it. It is a rather coarse, hairy plant, with leaves hardly more than half an inch, the thick and either dense or lax spikes 2 or 3 inches long : bracts sometimes nearly an inch long. Seeds moderately reniform, with a loose and thick cellular-reticulated integument, and no obvious rostellum, but the nucleus is slender-pointed.

ORTHOCARPUS PALLESCENS, Gray in Sill. Jour. 34 (ser. 2.) p. 339. Euchroma pallescens, Nutt. herb. ; but in the flowers examined the calyx not equally 4-cleft, only 2-cleft, with the segments 2-cleft at the apex or to the middle. To this, however, I would refer a plant of Dr. Lyall's Oregon Boundary collection, received from Kew as “ Castilleia pallida var.?” No. 291 of Geyer's Coll., mentioned in the enumeration under C. septentrionalis ; also Dr. Torrey's No. 363, from Donner Lake in the Sierra Nevada, No. 1866 (“ tips of bracts and corolla white") and 2838 of Prof. Brewer's collection, from high sierras, and in Klamath Valley, Southern Oregon, by Dr. Cronkhite. It is not easy to decide whether it should be ranked under Orthocarpus or Castilleia. The root is clearly perennial, as in no other Orthocarpus, and the lower lip is not as much triplicate as in some species of Castilleia ; but in length it very nearly or quite equals the short galea, and its oblong lobes are about as long as the undivided portion. The coat of the seed appears to be cellular-favose, in the manner of Castilleia, but at maturity it forms an arilliform covering not much larger than the nucleus, which lies loose within it. The species of Orthocarpus most like it is 0. attenuatus, Gray, which appears to be distinct from 0. hispidus by its white corolla with less trisaccate lower lip and proportionally longer lobes.

PEDICULARIS ATTOLLENS: Faucidentes Longirostres ; caulibus erectis gracilibus (semi- ad bipedalibus) apice cum spica elongata angusta primum lanatis ; foliis (caulinis superioribus parvis) pinnatipartitis, segmentis linearibus serratis incisisve; calycis dentibus tubo subæquilongis ; corollæ rubro-purpureæ galea cassidiformi e calyce breviter exserta labio lato dimidio breviore, rostro abrupto super galeam elevato
