Among a number of Samoan plants placed for elucidation at my disposal by the Rev. S. T. Whitmee, occurs a whortleberry-bush the first member of the order of Vacciniere, as yet known from that group. The Royal Society of Tasmania has favoured me on former occasions by promulgating notes on plants not always Tasmanian, and, perhaps, this privilege will be continued at this and future opportunities to render known remarkable undescribed plants through the pages of its publications, while this advantage will be all the more appreciated, inasmuch as the praiseworthy regularity and punctuality with which the Tasmanian Society issues its papers, affords the most favourable vehicle in Australia for the early record of new observations.
