ocrnotes:"Correct, I think."--W. 0. Focke. " What is most undoubtedly the same as this occurs in many places in Devon and Cornwall, and I am delighted at being able, through the receipt of the specimen from Howie Hill, to get a name for it. I had thought it near R. Kxhleri, Weihe, and cavatifalius, P. J. Mull. The sharply pointed leaflets, with formal outline, and the light yellowish-green hue of the plant generally, are striking features. I have specimens from Bircham and Shalaford, Egg Buckland; Passage Wood, Revelstoke ; and Caton, all in S. Devon; Anthony ; Sheviocke; and the Camel Valley."--T. R. A. Briggs. New record for Vice-county 3.
