Thanks to the distinguished labours of Robt. Brown, J. D. Hooker, Gunn, Stuart, and other naturalists, the extent and distribution of our Tasmanian ferns, in nearly all parts of the island, have been so thoroughly investigated that it would seem little now remains to be done. The following is a description of the two species referred to:—Hymenophyllum marginatum (Hook and Grev.), p. 705, Flora Austral., vol. vii.; p. 57, Hook and Bak., syn. Honeysuckle Hill, Queen River, Tas., T. B. Moore; Port Jackson, N.S.W. -Hymenophyllum malingii, Mett.; Trichomanes malingii, Hook, p. 66. Hook and Bak., syn. Honeysuckle Hill, Queen River, Tas., T. B. Moore. New Zealand.
