Among the enthusiasts who have pushed the study of
plants to its present high level, few have done much research
amongst the lower groups, especially the fungi. Little more
has been done than could be classed as simply scratching
the surface. There is plenty of new material at hand ready
for the worker. The only trouble is that sometimes when
returns are copious it is not always easy to induce an estimable
society to publish it. The plants brought before you in the present paper are
of exceptional interest, though few. The Hepatics here
described by Pearson are the last lot collected by our old
friend, W. A. Weymouth. Pearson, who died only a short
time ago, was for many years a corresponding member of
this Society. Terfezia tasmanica., n.s. An irregular subterranean
tuber, just emerging from the ground when mature, usually
1-3 cm. diameter, chestnut-brown, tough fleshy.
Slopes of Mt. Wellington, 300 ft.
Xylaria tolosa, n.s. Sporophore usually arising with a
long root from a loose subterranean sclerotium; erect, black
includes notes and description of species.
