THE Flora Glottiana (Flora of the Clyde, or of Glasgow,) includes most of the plants of Lanarkshire, together with others occurring in the adjacent parts of the counties of Renfrew, Dumbarton and Stirling. The Indigenous Plants of Lanarkshire, a work more recently published, is a descriptive Flora of the county. I can give very few particular localities or stations, in addition to those indicated in the two works mentioned, but my Herbarium contains a large number of specimens from these counties, and the shores of the firth of Clyde; for which I am indebted to Mr. Joseph Hooker. Unfortunately, the method chosen by Mr. Hooker, for intimating the counties in which the spe cimens were gathered, (by means of a printed list and initial letters, without tickets to the specimens,) is so liable to inadvertences on the part of the sender, and misapprehension on the part of the receiver, that the chances are very great, for some of the specimens being referred to wrong counties. But we may safely trust that they have all been gathered in one or other of the four counties mentioned, or on the coasts of the firth of Clyde, as in Ayr, Argyle, or the adjacent islands; and, probably enough, in nineteen out of twenty specimens, the counties will be correctly indicated. This explanation is particularly made, because it may possibly happen that I name a specimen from a county, in which the species does not really exist.
