Excerpt from book: A NEW VICIA FROM TENERIFE. By The Rev. R. P. Murray, M.A., P.L.S. Vicia scandens, n. sp. V. glabresceus, caule scandente, iutri- catissimo, foliis 3-5-jugis, cirrhosis, cirrhis ramosis, foliolis liueari- oblanceolatis vel linearibus, stipulis hirsutis, lanceolatis, plus minus dentatis; pedunculis quam folia longioilbus, multifloris; vexillo angusto, alarum longitudine; ovario stipitato; leguminibus latis, compressis, nervosulis, 4-6-spermis. Perennial? climbing. Stems glabrescent, angular, furrowed, branched. Leaves with 3-5 pairs of leaflets, cirrhose, tendrils branched. Stipules hairy, lanceolate, toothed at the base (semi- hastate), the upper ones broader, sublaciniate towards the tip. Leaflets -1J- in., linear-oblanceolate to linear, obtuse, apiculate, very thinly hairy on both sides, shortly stalked. Flowers 4-6 lines, in a secund raceme.

Corolla cream-coloured; standard only slightly dilated upwards, about equalling the wings, and slightly exceeding the keel. Pod 1 in. 9 lines to 2 in. long, 4 lines broad, stipitate, gradually narrowed to the base, shortly acuminate at the tip, glabrous, reticulate, much compressed, about 5-seeded. Seeds (immature) about 2 lines in diameter. The present species differs from V. cirrhosa Chr. Sm. in the structure of the calyx (in V. cirrhosa the teeth are almost obsolete), and in the much broader and larger pods, which contain larger and fewer seeds; and in other respects. It is, I think, more nearly related to V. varia Host, and may possibly be identical w...
