(PLATE 279). The species marked * are new to the Malay Peninsula. Gleichenia glauca Hook. Penang Hill, 1500 ft. elevation. G. flagellaris Spr. Penang and Perak, sea-level. G. dichotoma Willd. Perak, sea-level. Cyathea Brunonis Wall. Penang and Perak, up to 500 ft. Alsophila glauca Bl. Perak, 3000 ft. d. commutata Mett. Perak, 5000 ft. *Alsophila dubia Bedd. Stipes ?; main rachis and rachis of pinne purple-brown, slightly furfuraceous above, glabrous below; fronds subcoriaceo-membranaceous; primary pinne 16-20 in. long, pinnate, with the apex only pinnatifid; pinnules about 4 in. long by k in. broad on petioles 1–14 lines long, more or less truncate at the base, much acuminate at the apex, pinnatifid only about one-sixth of the way to the costule, the very shallow lobes rather truncate; costules scaly below or at length glabrous, furfuraceous above; veins pinnate; veinlets simple; sori large, generally only in 1-2 rows, i.e., on the 1-2 lower veinlets only, but sometimes in 3-4 rows, i.e., on 3-4 veinlets and then near the base of the veinlets, and consequently parallel with the primary vein, and not shaped like an inverted V, as in glabra. Perak, 4000 ft. elevation. It is more allied to podophylla of Hooker than to glabra, and there is a specimen of it in the Kew packet of podophylla gathered by Curtis in Java ; which Mr. Baker now thinks distinct from the Chinese plant.

Asplenium Griffithianum does not appear to occur in Perak or Penang; the plant referred to at page 193, Syn. Fil., as having been collected by Mactier in Penang is an undescribed species, and as Mr. Baker has allowed me to describe it, I annex a description :

Asplenium Mactieri, n. sp. - Caudex small, erect, scaly; scales dark brown, with a paler margin, lanceolate from a broad base, finely acuminated; stipes 649 in. long, pale yellow, whitish at the base; fronds 6–9 in. long, 1–14 in. broad, gradually narrowed below, gradually and finely acuminated at the apex, the margin crenate or serrate; texture subcoriaceous; veins distinct, usually once forked from near the base, occasionally again forked towards the apex, not quite reaching the margin ; sori reaching from the midrib two-thirds towards the margin; indusium broad and very prominent.—Penang, gathered by Mactier. Allied to Grifithianum, but with a long slender stipe, rather more coriaceous in texture, and of a paler colour.
