In a paper presented before this Academy in 1931, the writer reported a species of Fabronia under the name F. gymnostoma. The species was collected by Dr. B. Shimek August 16, 1916, near West Lake Okoboji, where it occurred very sparingly near the base of a large partly decorticated red cedar (Juniperus virginiana). Only a few old fruits were found. There were no peristomes, but a few rather ragged cells at the mouth of the capsule were taken to be a remnant of a membrane which closed the opening as in F. gymnostoma.
