|notes:||"I gathered this plant in a small marsh in Strath Tay (the precise locality of which I advisedly withhold, since the plant was confined to a limited area), and thought it to be the above plant, so at oncesent a specimen to Mr. Arthur Bennett, who wired back to my query "yes, or borealis." I submitted it to Professor Hackel, who named it Calamagrostis neglecta, Gaerta., var. elatior, Hartm. in 'Anders. Skand. Vaxt. 2, p. 95, - C. borealis Laestad." Nyman places borealis as a sub-species of neglecta. If placed in a variety in our lists it will be D. neglecta, Kunth, var. borealis (Laestadius). It is on record for Finmark, Finland, West Bothnia, Greenland. - Ed.(Site noted in Flora of Perthshire as first Scottish record, site later reported destroyed by sawmilling operations, but Fraser (1913) rediscovered the species within a mile of Druce's sit, Report of the Botanical Exchange Club 1917, 55 & 133.)
