A few years ago I had the honour of submitting to the Royal Society of Tasmania a census of the flowering plants and ferns, then known, from the main island and its dependencies. The issue of this index in the Society's volume of 1874 has rendered it accessible to collectors of Tasmanian plants; and as some there have arranged their botanic specimens according to the census list, I may feel justified in adding now a few more plants to the previous enumeration, and may also be allowed to effect a few changes in the names and arrangement first adopted, furnishing simultaneously a few other notes supplemental to my former communications.
