Abstract

In continuing the subject opened by me in the proceedings
for 1893, I desire to acknowledge my further indebtedness to
Professor V. F. Brotherus, of Helsingfors, from whose third
series of " New Species of Australasian Mosses," as published
in Oefversight af Finska Vet.-Soc. Foerh, Helsingfors, 1895, I
obtain the descriptions of New Mosses given under the first
following heading. It is a pleasure to call attention to the
fact that the writer's name does not appear alone in connection
with these new species, his friends, Mr. T. B. Moore, of
Strahan, and the Bev. John Buftou, of Dunally, bearing him
company. This portion of the paper adds fifteen (15) new
species, mating in all twenty-eight (28) new mosses since Mr.
B. A. Bastow's list.
The second heading notes two new varieties. The third
deals with mosses already known elsewhere, but now for the
first time recorded for Tasmania. One of these, Barbula
rubella (Hoffm.), Mitt., is of the more interest in that it is
also thus first recorded for Australasia.
The fourth part gives descriptions of four new mosses the
names only of which appeared in my 1893 paper. These are
obtained from the sources in which the respective authors
published their original descriptions.
