On the earth, near the sea, fertile ; Hingham, Duxbury, Mr. Russell ! and elsewhere on the coast of Massachusetts, Dr. Porter! Mr. Oakes! – B, alpine and montane districts, infertile ; White Mountains. Monadnoc, Russell! Newfoundland, Bory! I have endeavoured to point out the features that seem to distinguish this remarkable Lichen from C. uncialis, but it is possible that the conclusion of its original indica. tor may be correct. The podetia become very turgid, and at length often explanate, measuring in one of my specimens eight lines in diameter at the base, and five where the branches begin. The Newfoundland specimen, and our alpine ones, belong to an apparently sterile, subalpine state of the Lichen.

On the earth ; Newfoundland, Herb. Hook.! This beautiful species resembles C. deformis in some respects, but belongs to the present subdivision, and seems very distinct from every other scarlet-fruited Cladonia with which I am acquainted. I venture to inscribe it to the illustrious botanist who first proposed a complete survey of the cryptogamy of British America, and who has done more than any other to illustrate it.

On the earth, Canada, Michaux! Fries. This is the “Lichen cocciferus; major, Dill. t. 14, f. 6, M,” of Michaux's herbarium, the specimens appearing to me, at the time I examined them, to resemble some states of C. deformis. Fries observes incidentally (Lichenogr. p. 237) upon Canada specimens ( specimina authentica Canadensia ') of Michaux’s Lichen, that the podetia do not become squamulose, that it has
