(115.) N. palustre, DC. Var.
Our specimens placed here agree exactly with SuksdorfFs plant collected May 4th, 1885, and distributed with the above name. The long pods, over half an inch long, with stiff branching stem and deep fusiform root distinguish it from all other forms of N. palustre in our possession. Our specimens are from Port Haney, and Agassiz in the lower valley of the Fraser River, B.C. The same form was collected on Vancouver Island, near Cedar Hill, in 1887. Other specimens approaching these were collected in muddy places at Kamloops, B.C., 1889. (Macoun.)

The plant in question is only about four inches high and branches from the root. Growing in ground subject to overflow, Thompson River, Kamloops, B.C., 1889; also at Nanaimo, Vancouver Island, 1887.
