|notes:||" This form, which was described by Mr Toensend in the Hnts Flora (1883) was first noticed by me several years ago, growing in some plenty, along a bank on the coast, near Redbridge, Hants, but I have not met with it elsewhere. The present specimens were collected in the same locality by my sister, Miss m Groves, in May and June, 1882.The usual notch at the apex of the pouch is entirely wanting in this form" _-J Groves. "L. Smittii without a notch is interesting." - C.C.Babington. " A very remarkable plant, probably deserving to be considered a sub-species if it comes true from seed. the entire pods are considerably more swollen than in L Smithii, the fruit peduncles are shorter, and the rachis has long hairs. The name is an unfortunate one. If a nominative name with a capital letter, it ought to be Alastistylis; if an adjective, alatisstylatum," -J. T Boswell.|
