On Digge's Island, Hudson Strait. August, 1884. (R. Bell.)

(440.) W. micro-denticulata, CM. & Kindb. (n. sp.)

Tufts dense, glossy green, about 3 cm. high. Leaves small, loose when dry open-erect, decurrent, short, ovate-oblong, nearly entire, more widely areolate with a red and not percurrent costa, the comal ones longer, lanceolate, acute or sub-obtuse, narrow-areolate, revolute at the borders nearly all around, faintly denticulate above, costa pale and sub-percurrent. Capsules small (not ripe) obovate, short-necked; lid tow mammillate. Dioecious.

Probably allied to Webera commutata, Schimp., but differing principally in the distincter decurrent, loosely disposed leaves.

Close to perpetual snow on the Gold Range, north of Griffin Lake, B.C.; alt. 1,000 feet. August 7th, 1889. (Macoun).

(441.) W. micro-apiculata, C. M. & Kindb. (n. sp.)

Tufts small, dense and shining, bright green above, decolorate below, about 2 cm. high. Leaves small; narrow-areolate, densely imbricate and appressed when dry; when moistened suberect, not decurrent, ovate-lanceolate with a needle-shaped, often incurved point, thelower nearly entire, the comal a little longer, faintly and distantly sinuolate-denticulate above, borders not revolute, costa not excurrent.

This species is very peculiar, but only found in a barren state. It resembles in habit a species of Bryum sect. Anomobryum also the pleurocarpous genus Myurella.
