ocrnotes:Agrostispalustris, Huds. Aviemore, Easterness, July, 1887.--G. C. Druce, The specimens sent, I suppose, belong to Parneli's var.palustris (ofalba). It occurred in a swamp by theSpey side, between Aviemore and Downe, Easterness, 96, and from the robust habit suggested at a distance a Uigraphis form, "Is A. alba v. coarctata, Hoffm."--E. Hackel. " Professor Hackel now considers that A. alba should bear the name A. stolonifera, L. I have only the 'Sp. Plant,' ed. II. for reference, but in that work (p. 93) ' Fl. Suecica,' ed. II. (1755) is quoted under the latter name ; while Nyman (' Sylloge,' p. 408) quotes the ' Skanska Resa' (1751) as the authority. Both of these works greatly antedate the first edition of ' Hudson's Fl, Anglica,' "--W, H, Beeby.
