Corrections and Additions in Mr. Mill’s List of Plants in the Isle of Wight
Phytologist, I (Jan. 1842), 132-3. No. 97 in Art. XLV, “Varieties.” Signed “J.S. Mill; Kensington, December 20, 1841.” The corrections and additions are to the previous item, pp. 262-3 above. Not republished. Not listed in Mill’s bibliography.
line 34, for Triticum Nardus read T. junceum. Tamarix gallica, (line 37) has most probably been introduced into the locality near Yarmouth. Poa bulbosa (line 42) must be erased from the list: the mistake arose from an imperfect specimen of a grass from Alum Bay having been compared by a friend with continental specimens of Poa bulbosa, in its viviparous state. The Alum Bay plant was afterwards found to be an Agrostis. To the plants growing in salt marshes at Yarmouth, add Triglochin maritimum and Potamogeton pectinatum. To those of the New Forest add Triglochin palustre.
