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.
