The lichens of this collection are all conspicuous foliaceous or fruticulose forms. One striking feature is the evident care of the collector to preserve excellent specimens. There are no notes accompanying each packet. However, if all were collected in one of the above named states as is stated on the card accompanying the package sent me, the collection is a very good one, as Cetraria Islandica, Evernia vulpina, and Stereocaulon puschale, are probably new or very rare in either state. The same may probably be said of the two Umbilicarias listed.
