notes:"E. verna Meyer (vulgaris DC., sensu stricto); not stenocarpa Jord."-Drabble. "Mine seems a mixed gathering, but none of them should I name stenocarpa; the fruits are too short and too broad, even broader than Y.119 from Cronkley Fell, which is a neat little plant."-Druce."

Four plants and an unmarked envelope, possibly containg 5th sp on sheet. Two labels same detail.
