In the rich mesic deciduous forest of the hills along the north shore of Long Island, N. Y., Botrychium obliquum Muhl. is occasionally found. In a small group of the dissectum variety found July 28, 1931, some had such tiny leaves as to suggest the search for gametophytes. On digging up the smallest plant the brown empty skin of the gametophyte was found, attached to the crown of the young plant, about 3 cm. below the surface of the ground The soil was a fine sand, covered by less than a centimeter of leafy humus.
