Abstract

Since my "Field Memoranda for Tasmanian Botanists"
was published sixteen years ago (1874), there has been a considerable alteration in the nomenclature of species as
adopted in Hooker's Flora of Tasmania, as well as additions
to the list of species then known. Now that our zealous
Secretary is about to issue a new and comprehensive Descriptive
Catalogue of all the Ferns of tbe island known at the
present time, I have thought it desirable to place on record
a revised list of the species, together with as complete a list
of the localities of the various species as are known to me,
with the desire to aid him in making this portion of his
valuable work as complete as possible.
Includes descriptions of species and a table listing Tasmanian ferns, club mosses, and pillworts.
