Abstract

The illustrated key, accompanying this paper, is prepared
chiefly for the use of students, residing in our country districts,
who have not at all times access to the many valuable Botanical works in the Royal Society's Library.
The illustrations are, for the most part, drawn from nature;
or, where specimens of the mosses have not been available,
the drawings been taken from standard works on the
subject, namely: "Flora of Tasmania," "Flora of New Zealand," and "Flora of tbe Antarctic Islands," by Dr. J.
D. Hooker, F.R.S.; "Bryologia Britannica," by William
Wilson, Esq.
The genera are all arranged on one large sheet so that the whole may be presented at one view.
We find at the top of the key all the mosses of Tasmania
are divided into two sections these are, terminal
fruiting or acrocarpous mosses, and side-fruiting or pleurocarpous
mosses.
Includes a description of species of mosses and index of Genera, sub-Genera to illustrated key and to description.
