In June, 1902, I sent an underground fungus to Kew to be named, and with the hope that a description would be published in due course in the Kew Bulletin. George Massee, who at that time controlled the fungus department, suggested for it the name Secotium sessile, but it appears a description was not published.
In the year 1911 I read a paper before the Royal Society of Tasmania on the Hymenogastaceae, of Tasmania, including therein four Secotiums. In all good faith I described
S. sessile, believing it had already been described by Massee. Mr. G. H. Cunningham, Mycologist of New Zealand, now points out that, according to modern ideas, the presence of Cystidia places this tuber in the genus Elasmomyces, and advises me to describe it as a member of that genus.
