ocrnotes:I submitted this plant to Professor Babington, and it was named by him " R. Reuteri, agreeing well with authentic specimens of Mercier's." I cannot bring myself to believe that this is the same bramble as the R. Reuteri of the Ross neighbourhood, specimens of which I also send (from Sellack). It is very abundant near Ross, and after seeing a great deal of this Ross plant, I think the Edwin Ralph plant cannot be the same. The plant is abundant in Edwin Ralph wood, but I do not know it elsewhere in the county.--Augustin Ley. "R, hirtus, W. andN, A much more weak form."--Dr. Focke. " I have this Rubus, or what is essentially the same, though on my specimens the leaves of the stems are quinate, from a wood at Puslinch, Newton Ferrers, Devon. It was gathered so long ago as 1873 and 1874, but has remained unnamed. In fruit the sepals appear to be patent or loosely adpressed."--T, R. A. Briggs. New record for Vice-county 3.
