"Plot,"

domestica. (The tree referred to in the Philosophical Trans-
actions, English Flora, &c. is in Wyre Forest, Worcester-
shire;
and there is no other in England that can be posi-
tively referred to, as reputedly wild. Mr. Lees.
not Mr. Pitts, is the authority referred to by Turner and
Dillwyn, as also by Ray. "Mr. Pitts" is named in Eng-
lish Flora, only as the authority for the tree in Wyre Forest.
Turner and Dillwyn should have written "moorlands,” in-
stead of "woodlands. It would seem that all the notices
respecting the existence of the species in this county, are to
be referred to Dr. Plot's statement of it being frequent in
the moorlands, which is not the case now, if it ever were so.
