+ MENZIESIA cærulea. "The station is on the Athol Sow, at Dalnaspidal, half way between Dalnacardoch and Dalwhinnie. The hill fronts the Highland road, and runs parallel with it, being on the west side of the road, and immediately north of Loch Garry. Assuming the road to be 1400 feet, the plant would be at 2600 or 2800 feet. I should hardly think it reaches 3000 feet. It grows among Empetrum nigrum, which takes the place of Calluna vulgaris; the latter becoming stunted, and almost disappearing before any of the Menziesia is found." W. Brand, sp.'


By such an explicit direction, Mr. Brand has at once ended the mystery in which the locality of this species has been so long shrouded. The plant is said to have been nearly all eradicated lately by a nurseryman, who found the sale of specimens too profitable for many to be left on the hill. Unless it shall be discovered elsewhere in Scotland, I fear we ought to regard the plant as only a doubtful native.

Concealment always begets suspicion, but the character of the nurseryman is said to have been too good to give any fair ground for supposing the station to be artificial. Mr. Don's name is attached to a different locality, by Smith; and if Mr. Don communicated the station of "Isle of Shiant to the author of the English Flora, on his personal responsibility, this must remove all doubts.
