Prof. Scribner says of this species: " This is A. rubra, Linn. May be called A. rubra, Linn., var. Americana. It is the same as A. rupestris,
Chapm. (non All.), found on Roan Mountain, North Carolina. The same plant grows on the White Mountains of New Hampshire (A. carina, var. alpina, Oakes) together with the true A. rupestris, All." (Scribner.) Our specimens from Mount Albert, Gaspé, Q., belong to A. rubra, var. Americana. (Macoun.)
(3203.) A. Macounii, Scribner, in Herb.
A. canina, Linn., var. paleata, Vasey; Macoun, Cat. IV., 198.
"Very distinct from A. canina, Linn. Probably a new species and will name it A. Macounii." (cribner.)
(2764.) A. exarata, Trim; Macoun, Cat. IV., 198.
Prof. Scribner says of No. 31 collected at Burrarol Inlet and New Westminster, B.C., "one of the many forms (or species) referred to A. exarata, Trim, by American authors."
(2770.) A. varians, Trim; Macoun, Cat. IV., 200.
Of specimens of this sent to Prof. Scribner, he writes - "'Agrostis varians, Trim = 6054 Bolander.' This certainly does not equal 6054 Bolander, of which I have specimens, nor is it A. varians, Trim It may be a small form of A. exarata, Trim" These specimens were from Queen Charlotte Islands. (Macoun.) Of others he writes - "not A. varians. Am not prepared to say what it is. I have the same from Oregon." These specimens were from Adams Lake, B.C. 1888. Collected by Dr. Dawson. Small specimens gathered on Mount Queest and Griffin Lake Mountains of the Gold Range, B.C., at an altitude of 6500 feet are doubtfully referred here by Prof. Scribner. (Macoun.)
(3204.) A. humilis, Vasey.
"Rootstock creeping, palea 3/4 as long as its glume and a short naked prolongation of the rachilla." Mount Queest, altitude 6500 feet 1889. (J. M. Macoun.) Abundant on mountains north of Griffin Lake in the Gold Range, B.C. 1889. (Macoun.)
(2768.) A. perennans, Tuck.; Macoun, Cat. IV., 199.
Of Ottawa specimens, Prof. Scribner writes - "A. perennans, Tuck., but hardly of Gray's Manual; certainly Trichodium perennans of Ell."
