Abstract

It will be understood from the previous papers that the Andreaeaceae and the Sphagnaceae are so far removed from other mosses as to each form separate sub- orders, the remaining sub-order Bryaceae containing two sections, which are again divided into Tribes. Tribe 1, of this sub-order, containing Phascae and Bruchia, has already been described, and we now notice Tribe 2. The Weissiae are a low and tufty growing tribe, with narrow leaves, and are difficult subjects for the tyro to identify.
