Excerpt: ... petiolo 3-5 lin. longo. Inflorescentia et flores parvi fere Z. vulgarit. Stamina longitudinc calycis. Petala subbreviora, obovato-oblonga, convoluta. Fructns non vidi. 125. Gouania corylifolia Raddi.--DC. Prod. 2. p. 39.--Columbia. I can see no difference of specific importance between these specimens and the common Brazilian form, but the genus is at present in so much confusion that it is doubtful whether both may not be referable to some of the older described species. The fruit is acutely three-winged. Anacardiaceje. 126. Rhus terebinthifolia, Schlecht. Linnaea, 5. p. 600.--Tepic. 127. Rhus macrophylla, Hook, et Arn. Bot. Beech, p. 413.--Acapulco. 128. Mangifera indica, Linn.--DC. Prod. 2. p. 63.--Panama, Columbia, Guayaquil. 129. Anacardium occidentale, Linn.--DC. Prod. 2. p. 62.--Panama to Guayaquil. 130.

The calyx is that of Omphalobium, but the specimen is insufficient to determine the genus with certainty. Leguminos:. 133. Crotalaria Hooheriana, Alph. DC. 8. Not. PI. Rar. Gen. p. 23.--Tepic. Scarcely different from C. oralis of Pursh. 134. Crotalaria buplevrifolia, Schlecht. Linnaea, 5. p. 575.--Hook. Ic. P1. t. 382.--Tepic. 135. Crotalaria Tepicana, Hook, et Arn.
