This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1881 edition. Excerpt: ... first, of which F. vesiculosa is the type, the fronds are dioecious and the midrib distinct throughout. In the second, represented by F. evanescens, they are hermaphrodite and the midrib indistinct. F. vESicrLOSus, L.; Phyc. Brit., PI. 204; Etudes Phycol., PI. 15.
