230 CONTRIBUTIOISrS TO A KNOWLEDGE OF THE FLORA OF AUSTRALIA. No. I. By R. T. Baker, F.L.S., Assistant Curator, Technological Museum, Sydney, (Plate X.) PITTOSPOREJE. *Cheiranthera filifolia, Turcz. — Walltingara, N.S.W. In the open and on the slopes of granitic ridges (Mr. D. A. Porter). The specimen forwarded by Mr. Porter is a smaller plant than any I have yet seen of C. linearis, A. Cunn., and agrees fairly well with Bentham's description of C. filifolia, except perhaps in the i-elative length of the anthers and filaments, — points, I find, that are not constant ; and so with the balance of evidence in favour of this species I now I'ecord it for Eastern Australia, believing that further material will confirm my present determina-tions. If this should prove not to be C. filifolia, A. Cunn., then I think the latter name will have to be considered as a synonym of G. linearis, Bentham himself stating (B.Fl. i. p. 127) that the two are closely allied. STEKCULIACEffi. Seringia platyphylla, J. Gay. — Murwillumbah, Tweed River (W. Bauerlen). TiLiACE.a;. El^ocarpus BABUERLENije/'.ir.i)/. et B.T.B. — Richmond River, Emigrant Creek at Tintenbar and Byaneum, 5 miles from MuU-umbimby, Tweed River (W, Bauerlen). * Species marked with an asterisk liave not previously been recorded from New South Wales.
