I have decided therefore to offer now to the Society the account of the five Orders which I have been able to elaborate ; trusting at some time in the near future to deal with the remaining Orders of the Class. [...] Fruit coriaceous or membranous free or more or less admit° to the base of the calyx 2-6-relied or (by absorption of the partitions) 1-celled dehiscent or indehiscent. [...] Flowers in short axillary branches sessile solitary in the arils of reduced leaves ; bracts in pairs filiform shorter than the tube of the calyx. [...] Stamens in the hermaphrodite flowers; of the same length as the calyx-teeth longer in the male flowers. [...] Calyx 12-14-ribbed ; the teeth half as many as the ribs the ribs opposite the teeth broader ; flowers 2-3 in.
