Abstract

The genus Trithuria has hitherto been represented by one
species only. Like the order to which it belongs, it is probably
the remnant of an ancient stock that nourished in past
ages. It can hardly be said that the type is being exterminated,
in the struggle for existence its peculiar locality is
hardly otherwise occupied, it seems rather to be dying out
from some more obscure cause, a senility that renders it
unable to adapt itself to small, gradual change.
