The list above is tolerably complete. I have given the spots where I gathered my specimens. I have put the English names to those plantswhich are found in the British Isles. For those plants which I did not collect myself, I am indebted to Hooker's Journal, 1813; Zoega's Flora Islandica; Preyer u. Zirkel, Reise n. Island; Dr. Lindsay's Flora of Iceland, in the Edinburgh New Philosophical Journal, July, 1861; and to Dr. Hjattalin's Icelandic work of the plants of the island, published in 1830. I have not given any account of the mosses and algae, as I gathered none myself.
