Correction of an Error in the “Notes on the Species of Oenanthe”
Phytologist, II (Apr. 1845), 116. Signed “J.S. Mill, Kensington, March, 1845.” The reference is to the previous item, pp. 265-6 above. Not republished. Not listed in Mill’s bibliography.
since my note on the species of Oenanthe was printed (Phytol. ii. 48), my specimens from Battersea, Weybridge and Seaford have had the advantage of being examined by Mr. Watson. That gentleman confirms my statement respecting the Battersea and Weybridge plants, which he decides to be his Oenanthe Smithii, the peucedanifolia of Smith. The plant from Seaford, which I had classed as the pimpinelloides, he pronounces to be Oenanthe Lachenalii; and he has fully satisfied me, both by his high authority, and by a comparison of specimens with which he has most courteously supplied me, that I was previously unacquainted with the true Oe. pimpinelloides.
