701. Deschampsia

(2802.) D. atropurpurea, Scheele, var. minus, Vasey; Macoun, Cat. IV., 209.

Prof. Scribner says of this that it is "exactly like my European specimens ticketed Vahlodea atropurpurea. Certainly no variety."

(2806.) D. elongata, Munro; Macoun, Cat. IV., 210.

On dry spots, Cragellachie, Gold Range; on gravel at Penticten, south end of Okanagan Lake, B.C., 1889. (Macoun.)

703. Trisetum

(2809.) T. canescens, Buckl.; Macoun, Cat. IV., 211.

Not uncommon in thickets at Agassiz, B.C., May, 1889. (Macoun.)

(2810.) T. cernuum, Trin.; Macoun, Cat. IV., 210.

Not uncommon in thickets at Yale, on the Fraser, and Craigellachie, in the Gold Range, B.C. 1889. (Macoun.)

704. Avena

(2840.) A. Smithii, T. C. Porter; Gray, Man., ed. VI., 653.

"Closely allied to, but distinct from, Melica aristata. Neither of these can be referred to Melica, and they are no better classified when placed in Avena. Bromelica (Thurber as a section of Melica) might be raised to the rank of a genus, and made to include these and two or three other species which at present are evidently out of place in the genera to which they have been referred. Your No. 52 would then be Bromelica Smithii." (Scribner.) Rather common in damp thickets at Agassiz, B.C., May, 1887. (Macoun.) Prof. Scribner refers my No. 2840 (Melica aristata) to this species, so references under it are transferred here.

715. Eatonia

(2832.) E. obtusata, Gray; Macoun, Cat. IV., 218.

Two forms of this species were collected: "(a) Culm slender, 40 cm. high, panicle 4 cm. long: green plant, with the aspect of Koeleria cristata, and may be named sub-var. koelerioides. (b) Culm 90 cm. high, panicle 15 cm. long, interrupted, dark purple." (Scribner.) The first form was gathered on the Indian Reservation at Kamloops, B.C.; the second at Griffin Lake, in the Gold Range, B.C. 1889. (Macoun.)

(2833.) E. Pennsylvanica, Gray; Macoun, Cat., IV., 218.

Borders of ponds south of Kamloops, B.C., June, 1889. (Macoun.)
