notes:"Report for 1882 "When fresh fruit section is almost as round as inflata." - G. C. Druce. I queried this being var. brachycarpa, to which Mr J. G. Baler replies "Yes". Very like the plate of brachycarpa, Jord., but surely these forms are not worthy of distinction. C. C. Babington. Is praecox, Reich. (as I suppose I must call brachycarpa, E. B. III.), as D. brachycarpa is a North American plant quite different from the European. J. T. Boswell."
