Not illustrated. 1844 edition. Excerpt: ... a dimidiate involucre, or I should place it in Hemitelia. Fig. 1. Portion of a pinna, upper side. f. 2. Pinnule, with fructification, seen from beneath: nat. size. f. 3. Segment of pinnule, with sori. /. 4. Involucre and receptacle: --magnified. Inermis? rachi-costaque inferne subsquamosa strigoso-hispidis, frondibus 2-3-pinnatis, rachi secundaria conspicue alata precipue inter pinnulas, pinnulis sessilibus oblongo-lanceolatis apicibus productis obtusis membranaceis infra medium pinnatifidis, segmentis ovatis obtusis integris, venis liberis ad medium furcatis, soris 2-3 quoque segmento axillaribus versus marginem sitis, involucro ciliato plerumque ad latus inferum sori2-3 lobato. Hook. Sp. Ml. v. I, p. 31. Hab. British Guiana. C. S. Parker, Esq. I do not find this anywhere described, nor am I clear that it should not be placed in Cyathea. In habit and form of the pinnules, it exhibits the closest affinity with H.Parkeri, Hook., but the involucre is dissimilar. fflg.l. Portion of a segment with son. f.2. Involucre and sorus: --magnified. Paniculis amplis ramosissitnis, ramis capillaribus elotigatis patentissimis, foliis brevi-petiolatis ovato-lanceolatis obscure penninerviis, sepalis pedicellisque glabris. Eucladus suffruticosus. Nutt. Mst. Hab. On the rocks of the Parri, Oahu, Sandwich Islands. T. Nuttall, Esq., 1 834. This plant possesses the true character of Schiedea, (Chamisso and Schlechtendahl) a shrubby genus of Caryophylleous (or some have it Portulaceous) plants, as far as we can at present know, peculiar to the Sandwich Islands. It is extremely different from the only described species, S. ligustrina, Cham, and Schlecht. in its very ample panicle, smaller flowers, petioled and penninerved (not strongly 3-nerved) leaves. A third species.show more
