381 SOME FURTHER OBSERVATIONS ON THE VEGETA-TION OF LORD HOWE ISLAND. By J. H. Maiden, F.L.S., Botanic Gardens, Sydney. (Plates xxxii.-xxxiii.) I offer a few brief notes on some Lord Howe Island plants to which I have given attention since the publication of my former paper (P.L.S.N.S.W. 1898, p. 112), together with a few additional bibliographical notes of some interest to the botanist. May I remind my readers, in passing, that there is, in the Santa Cruz Group, a second Lord Howe Island (see Proc. R.G.S. xlii. 220). JASMINE^:. Notel^a quadristaminea, Hemsl. — " Blue Plum." In my former paper (p. 130) I gave an account of the Blue Plum, and figured the fruits; I supposed it had not been recorded as having been found on the island. I have since received a complete series of botanical specimens, and find that the Blue Plum is referable to Notelcea qtiadristaminea, and a description of the fruit will be found in Mueller's Fragm. viii. 42, as Chionanthus. An amended description is given at x. 89, as Mayepea. I cannot find that this plant has anywhere been referred to by Mueller or others as " Blue Plum." Through Mr. J. G. Luehmann's kindness I have received specimens of leaves of (1) 1 Endiandra sp., Russell River, Queens-land (Sayer); (2) large coriaceous ovate lanceolate leaves, 8 inches long by 3 inches wide. New South Wales (Camara). Both are accompanied by fruits of NotelcBa qtiadristaminea. They are, in my opinion, incorrectly matched, but they aff'ord clues as to the occurrence of this species on the mainland. Up to the present I have not received these characteristic fruits from an Australian locality for certain.
