The material for this third unpretensive addition to the literature on Tasmanian plants has gradually been brought together from various sources. It was intended to offer this new contribution some considerable time ago, but the harassing anxieties which arose during the last few years in the writer's official life, and the impediment which thus occurred to his work in all directions, must plead excuse for the retarded appearance of this record of all those plants, placed so kindly at his disposal by several disinterested contributors. Some of the Algae now specially mentioned as not known from Tasmania at the time when Dr. Jos. Dalton Hooker's great work appeared, were already recorded in the magnificent volumes of the late Dr. Harvey's Phycologia, on the scientific elaboration and artistic embellishment of which work he spent also on Tasmanian shores many of his valuable days.
