Abstract

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.
