Veratrum sabadilla, not included in the Species Plantarum. It is the seed vessel of a Mexican plant; like a barley ear, but with seeds not exceeding the size of lintseed. They are reckoned the strongest of the vegetable caustics. Monardes says, that for destroying vermin, and as a corrosive for some kinds of ulcers, they are equally effectual with the actual cautery. Dale thinks the capsula of the seed only used: the taste is, however, bitter and acrid; in quality highly drastic, and powerfully anthelmintic. It is also diuretic and emetic.
