It may be well to place on record the fact that this beautiful microscopic plant has been noticed in Tasmania; and as so little is known of it even amongst microscopists, I will, at the same time, with the permission of the Fellows of the Society, describe it, and give a few lines on its history. The first occasion on which it was observed here was last year by Mr. Sale, of Launceston, by whom it was found adhering to the glass sides of his aquarium, and since then I have discovered it in its natural habitat, namely, the leaves and stems of water plants. I send prepared specimens for examination by the Fellows.
