(3207.) F. subuliflora, Scribner MS.
F. occidentalis, Macoun, Cat. IV., 235.
Prof. Scribner writes of this - "This (No. 7) is believed to be F. subulata, Bong, by Prof. Haekel, but it does not agree so well with his description of that species as your No. 89 (of this year.) It = 1171 and 1367, Henderson, and No. 19, Howell, in my herbarium. Note that the branches of the rather short panicle are all solitary, that the curved callus of the following glume is remarkably long and is covered with a few short stiff hairs, that the edges of the flowering glume are ciliate with a few scattered hairs near the base, and that the joints of the rachilla are also ciliate-scabrous. The panicle branches are shorter than in your No. 89, the leaves are shorter, of much firmer texture and pubescent on the upper surface. I will name this grasss provisionally F. subulifolia." This is the Vancouver Island plant.
(3208.) F. subulata, Bong.? No. 89 of 1889.
"Panicles nodding, the long and slender lower branches in pairs; callus much shorter than in No. 7, and with the joints of the rachilla simply scabrous. Flowering glumes 3-nerved. In No. 7, the flowering glumes are 5-nerved, the intermediate nerves, however, indistinct, excepting when the glumes are moistened and viewed by transmitted light." (Scribner.) In thickets at Agassiz, B.C., on the mountain side,
(2904.) F. occidentals, Hook.; Macoun, Cat. IT., 235.
On rocks, North Arm, Burrard Inlet, B.C., April 30, 1889. (Macoun.)
(2907.) F. rubra, Linn., var. longearistata, Hack. in herb. Scribner.
"Your No. 88 is this variety, and is apparently the same as 15 of Howell, named by Dr. Vasey F. ovina, L., var. polyphylla.
No. 87 is very near No. 88, but possibly distinct." (Scribner.) No. 87 is from Shuswap Lake, and No. 88 from Yale, B.C.
