|Title||Referee's report by Albert Charles Seward, on a paper 'Some new species of lagenostoma: A type of pteridospermous seed from the coal measures' by E A Newell Arber|
|Date||26 January 1905|
|Description||Sectional Committee: Botany|
Should be published in the new form of Proceedings, in full as regards the subject matter, but with some curtailment as to the descriptive part, especially the account of the morphology of the seed. Queries a point regarding the description of the seed on page thirteen of the paper. The illustrations should be reduced in size and slightly in number so as to be reproduced in two plates of the size used in the new Proceedings. Photograph five might be omitted, so too might photograph two. If photograph two is retained, the drawing number eight, plate two, might be left out. Photographs one, three and four should be reproduced in part only, they are unnecessarily large in their present form. Queries if both drawings three and four are necessary. The paper is important and well worthy of publication but would lose nothing of its value by a little compression and by the substitution of two octavo for two quarto plates.
