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.
