Abstract

In a paper on Mosses, read before this Society on the 12th of last May, the more easily distinguished generic characters of that natural order were described, and amongst them the peristomes or fringes of teeth surrounding the mouths of the fruit capsules, which deck their summits at: with jewelled crowds. The inflorescence of these tiny plants was not referred to at that time ; nevertheless, a brief description thereof is essential to the study of bryology, and it may interest the Fellows of the Royal Society.
