This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1844 edition. Excerpt: ...Comicularia bicolor. Amongst the stones under the rocks at Llyn Bodlyn. 6. lanata. Sent to me by Mr. Ralfs from Cader Idris. 7. Urceolaria cinerea. Common, particularly about the borders of lakes. U. calcarea is found only where the rocks are of a calcareous nature. 8. Nejihroma resupinata, ft papyracea, Ach. and Wahl. On stones and mosses, and upon the mossy trunks of trees: not uncommon. I have hitherto regarded this plant as the parilis of Acharius, and I still believe it to be the same as the plant described and figured in the ' Eng. Bot.' under that name. After much examination, however, and in the absence of authentic specimens from Acharius of the Swedish plant, I must confess my belief, that whether the true parilis or not, our plant is that which Acharius has described as the " resupinata, fipapyracea;" Wahlenberg as the " Peltidea resupinata, ft papyracea;" and Dillenius, xxviii. 105. p. 206, Edinb. ed. 1811, as the " Liche-noides fuscum, var.farinosa et crispa." My friend Dr. Taylor has always contended that what I have sent him as the parilis is only " a mountain state of the resupinata." Acharius, who in his ' Lien. Univ.' in 1810 described the parilis as a native of Sweden and England, in his ' Syn.' in 1814 speaks of it only as a Swedish plant, as if he had given up the claim of our English plant to be the parilis; yet he does not refer to it under the /5 papyracea of that work, so that he leaves us in doubt what at that time he considered the parilis of the ' Eng. Bot.' to be. Dillenius, Acharius and Wahlenberg all describe a variety of resupinata which pretty accurately agrees with the plant I have hitherto regarded as parilis, and which I have indeed no doubt is the parilis of ' Eng. Bot.' Dillenius says in the place above...
