145. Desmodium

(540.) D. canescens, DC.; Macoun, Cat. I., 118.

Not rare at Point aux Pins, Kent Co.; and abundant at Point Pelee, Essex Co., Out. Growing in rather low-lying wet sandy thickets. (Burgess.)

577. Onobrychis

(2130.) O. sativa, Lam.; Macoun, Cat. III., 511.

Cultivated on irrigated lands at Spence's Bridge and Kamloops, B.C., and escaped to brooksides. (Macoun.)

147. Vicia

(554.) V. Americana, Muhl., var. truncata, Brewer.

Thickets and borders of woods, Kananaskis Station, Rocky Mountains, 1885; thickets at Agassiz, B.C., 1889; and at Beacon Hill and Gordon Head, near Victoria, and Nanaimo, Vancouver Island, 1887. (Macoun.)

155. Prunus

(573.) P. Virginiana, Linn., Var. (?).

A form of this species, with very long deciduous sepals occurs in British Columbia, extending from the Eraser Valley northward to Telegraph Creek.

157. Spiraea

(580.) S. Douglasii, Hook. var. Menziesii, Presl; Macoun, Cat. I., 127.

This variety is very common throughout British Columbia and Vancouver Island, while the type of the species is confined to Vancouver Island, as far as our knowledge of it extends.

A variety which we refer to S. saticifolia, was gathered at Sicamous in July, 1889. It would pass in the east for S. salicifolia, as it has a large branching panicle, white flowers, and long exserted stamens. So far S. salicifolia has not been found west of the Rocky Mountains, but is reported from the far north.

158. Physocarpus. (Neillia.)

(584.) P. opulifolius, Maxim.; Gray, Man., ed. VI., 153.

(1890.) References under Neillia opulifolia, Benth. & Hook., Part 1., 127, belong here.

160. Rubus

(593.) R. Stellatus, Smith; Macoun, Cat., I., 130.

Port Simpson, coast of Northern British Columbia. (Anderson.)

(598.) R. strigosus x leucodermis.

A hybrid evidently between R. strigosus and R. leucodermis was found growing in profusion and fruiting abundantly on the hillsides, between the railway station and the hotel, and at other places at Sicamous, B.C. The fruit was very like that of R. neglectus, Peck, which is an undoubted hybrid between R. strigosus and R. occidentalis, but much more abundant and larger.
