(934.) S. Labradorense, Warnstorf. (n. sp.)

This species belongs to the Acutifolioe group, and is characterized by yellow woody corpuscules of the stem, by stem-leaves tongue or spatula-shaped, without fibres, narrowly edged, their hyaline cells generally 1-4 parted and showing on their inward surface great gaps in the membrane. The leaves of the branches are eggshaped, toothed at their broadly truncated apex, almost or not at all edged, and finely denticulated on their upper edge. Pores are found on the inward side in small numbers; these are small toward the apex and are situated in the corners of the cells; there are besides a few large holes toward the middle near the lateral edges. On the outside the pores are very numerous, narrowly elliptic, and are near the commisures; downward and toward the lateral edges they become broader and larger. The chlorophyll cells appear in transverse section equilaterally triangular and have a thin wall around; on the exterior they are well enclosed by the hyaline cells which are much arched forward. Plants above dark dirty purple.
