Abstract

THE three illustrations referred to by Dr. Gunther do not include Acer pseudoplatanus, nor do his pub lished notes make any reference to the fact that the carving is the earliest known record of the occurrence of the sycamore maple in Britain, antedating previous records by a quarter of a century. I did not mention the hogweed and water crowfoot, as their identification seemed less certain than that of the other species.
