DescriptionPlant specimens, mainly ferns illustrating unpublished descriptive accounts contained in a catalogue by R H Waring and sent to Daines Barrington.

The dried specimens are noted from p.15 of the catalogue, commencing with 'Lonchitis aspera Ger.'. The author states there that 'These varieties may be frequent, tho I have not observed them, elsewhere, and, as I believe them to be hitherto undescribed, I give specimens of them.'

R H Waring's account is from Leeswood, near Mold, Flintshire, in Wales.
