2. S. crocata, Ach. Th. submembranaceous, scrobiculate, greenishglaucous-fuscescent ; on the under side lanuginous, liver-colored at the circumference, with minute, pale-lemon-colored cyphellæ; laciniæ short, rounded, crenulate, with yellowish-pulverulent margins; 'apoth. scattered, fuscous-black.' Delis. Stict. p. 56.

Rocks among mosses, New England, infertile ; less common in the Northern mountains. S. Feei, Delis. I. c. p. 44, from North America, is perhaps a Southern species.

3. S. sylvatica, Ach. Th. coriaceous-membranaceous, laciniate-lobed, lacunulose, greenish-fuscous ; tomentose, and subfuscous-cinerascent beneath, with urceolate, whitish cyphellæ ; lobes somewhat truncate, rounded, crenulate ; apoth. marginal, peltate, rusous-fuscous.' Fr. Lichenogr. p. 51.

Rocks, among mosses. Pennsylvania, Muhl., New York, Halsey. S. fuliginosa, Ach., differs principally in its round-lobed, rugose fronds, frequently isidioid-efflorescent, and its (normal) sessile, orbiculate apothecia. The described apothecia of S. sylvatica depend upon the figures of Dillenius, Wulfen, &c. The species is now unknown in a fertile state.

4. S. quercizans, Ach. Th. cartilagineous, laciniate, plane, pale-rufous-fuscous; somewhat tomentose, and subfuscous-nigrescent beneath, with urceolate (membranaceous), whitish cyphellæ ; lobes subimbricate, oblong, rounded, crenulate ; 'apoth. scattered, disk somewhat concavoplane, with a thin entire margin.' Delis. Stict. p. 84. Lobaria, Michx.

Pennsylvania, Herb. Montagne ! Mossy rocks, New York, Russell ! The specimens from Mr, Russell seem to me to differ from S. sylvatica in the characters indicated by Delise, and to agree with his S. querci. zans, as they also do with my brief notes on the specimen (from Carolina) in herb. Michaux. S. Beauvoisii, Delis. I. c. p. 83, constituted on a North American Lichen, seems hardly distinct from the present.

5. S. scrobiculata, Ach. Th. coriaceous, suborbiculate, lax, scrobiculate, leaden-gray (and glaucescent); lanuginous on the under side, with naked, white spots; laciniæ rounded, somewhat entire (commonly sorediiferous) ; .apoth. scattered, from rufous becoming fuscous. Fr. Lichenogr. p. 53.

Trunks, and rocks among mosses, New England; infertile. Northward to Newfoundland, Pylaie. S. limbata, Ach., a species resembling this, but with urceolate, true cyphellæ, very possibly occurs with us.

6. S. anthraspis, Ach. Th. cartilagineous-membranaceous, lacu

nose-reticulate, broadly round-lobed, cinereous-virescent; rugulose and somewhat villous beneath, with small, white, sorediiform cyphellæ ; lobes somewhat crenate; apoth. scattered, disk at length convex, black, , and excluding the entire thalline margin. Ach. Syn. p. 233.

On the earth, among mosses; Northwest Coast, Menzies! New York, Halsey. The upper surface resembling that of S. pulmonaria.

7. S. pulmonaria, Ach. Th. coriaceous, lax, lacunose-reticulate, dark green (and olivaceous) ; tomentose on the under side, with naked, white spots ; lacinia elongated; discrete, sinuate-lobed, retuse-truncate; apoth. submarginal, rufous. Fr. Lichenogr. p. 53. Lichen pulmonarius, L.

Trunks in mountain forests, fertile. Also on rocks, where various sterile forms are found. Among these is S. linita, Ach., quoted by Delise as from the United States, which has occurred at the White Mountains, with all the features of the Swiss Lichen. New England. New York, Torrey. Pennsylvania, Muhl. Newfoundland, Pylaie.

8. S. glomerulifera, Delis. Th. coriaceous-cartilagineous, thick, orbicular, appressed, smooth, from pale green becoming glaucescent; villous on the under side, with scattered, excavated cyphellæ (which are often wanting); lacinia elongated, sinuate-lobed; apoth. scattered, dark-reddish-chestnut, with a rugose, persistent margin. Delis. Stict. p. 129. Tuckerm. Further Enum. I. c. Parmelia, Ach.

Trunks of trees, and rocks, fertile ; New England. Pennsylvania, Muhl, in herb. Willd.! Northward to Newfoundland, Pylaie. The green glomerules of the European Lichen always wanting in ours. Young plants of this species may be taken for the next.

9. S. herbacea, Ach. Th. membranaceous, appressed, smooth, obscurely green (and glaucescent); on the under side paler, lanuginous, the membranaceous, hoary cyphellæ rare ; lacinia sinuate-repand, rounded at the apices; apoth. scattered, rufous, margin crenulate.

SYNOPSIS OF THE Sections. Sect. I. The fibrillose hypothallus adnate to the foliaceous thallus,

which is discrete from the matrix. Subsect. I. IMBRICARIA, Fr. — Apothecia elevated, subpedicellate,

regular; disk very thin, naked, placed upon the gonimous layer. Thallus imbricate-foliaceous ; often black-dotted from abortion

of the apothecia. — Sp. 1-24. Subsect. II. Physcia, Fr. — Apothecia at first closed, at length de

hiscent. Disk thickish, waxy, placed upon the medullary layer. Thallus normally foliaceous ; ascendant or stellate ; fibrillose on the under side. * Thallus normally ascendant, or loosely decumbent; apoth. some.

33. Sect. II. Thallus subfoliaceous, at length compacted into a conglom

erate, subgranulose crust; arising from a fibrillose (rarely ob

solete) hypothallus, which is adnate to the matrix. Subsect. III. Pyxine, Tuckerm. — Apothecia erumpent, at first

closed, palish ; becoming patellæform, and, with the altered thalline margin, black; finally cephaloid, excluding the margin. Thallus subfoliaceous, imbricate-laciniate, at length crustaceous-concrete at the centre, on a black, fibrillose hypothal

lus. — Sp. 34. Subscct. IV. AMPhiloma, Fr. — Apothecia erumpent, somewhat cor

onate with an accessory thalline margin. Disk waxy, thickish, naked. Thallus foliaceous, somewhat monophyllous, rounded, at length crustaceous-compact at the centre, placed on a spongy

pannose hypothallus. — Sp. 35-38. Subsect. V. Psoroma, Fr. — Apothecia for the most part two-formed,

adnate or immersed; arising in the one case from the thallus, with a crenate-thalline margin ; and in the other from the hypothallus, with an entire proper margin. Disk waxy. Thallus of discrete, foliaceous squamules, arising from a common hy. pothallus; often at the centre, or wholly, concrete in a subgranulose crust. — Sp. 39-41.

squamulose-effigurate. Hypothallus smooth, adnate to the ma

trix, often confused with the thallus. Subsect. VI. PLACODIUM, Fr. — Apothecia plano-scutelliform, elevat

the hypothallus sometimes fibrillose-radiant. Subsect. VIII. PATELLARIA, Fr. — Apothecia regular, scutelliform,

sessile, the thalline margin persistent. Lamina of the disk somewhat plane, without proper margin. Thallus crustaceous, adnate to an indeterminate, mostly black hypothallus. Disk not

cæsious-pruinose. — Sp. 51 - 66. Subsect. IX. URCEOLARIA, Fr. — Apothecia innate in the crust, or

immersed in protuberant warts. Lamina urceolate, or protuberant, verrucæform, blackish, normally cæsious-pruinose, marginate. Thallus crustaceous; the whitish hypothallus confused with the thallus, or often fibrillose and radiant. — Sp. 67 – 70.
