    Until tihe puIblicalion of the paper previously mentioned,a the
    Flo'rida velvet Ibean had been known in this country under the name
    of Jlcthar Ouib;,. Mrs. Bort. showed clearly that it could not be
    thle plant olrigitally described under that name, nor could it be
    identified wiIlt any other described species. On this account she
    na1lledl and describted tie plant as a new\ species, tSlzolobiam (d,' ; ,i/j'-
    I I/,. She also emphasized tlie fact that tihe Florida velvet bean and
    allied planits collstitute a distinct genus from Mucuna, pointing out
    that the enums Mliucunia, consists of perennial plants with woody stems
    an1d with a biand-like hilum that extends two-thirds of the way;I
    al'oludr tlie seed, 1or 11oree, while thlie genus Stizolobiub consists of
    plants essentially annual, with an oblong-crateriforin hilium to the
    s Ied. Site futthier stated that Mucuna in germination is hy,,r',.,u-.
    witile Stizolo 0iulni is pi_', ous. This last statement is incorrect, as
    both a-e hypo! cous. There is a pronounced difference, however, in
    tlie gerninalion. In Stizolobiuni tlie first, leaves above the cotyledons
    are a pair ,of petiled leaves having solitary cordate leaflets, which
    immeliiatelv a:ie followed bv the typical alternate, trifoliate leaves of
    tlhe plant. Ii Muumna, on tle contrary, the initial leaves are all
    alternate, verly mutt reduced, amnd scale-like. These differences are
    well shown in Plate 1, where the germination of Muacuna. t. ,' is
    contrastedI witli hal of t t 'jilfolo 14ihla.i8 )f thlie 20 forms of Stizoloblium obtained, 10 have been grown to
    matulrity for one year or mnore in the field, and several others in the
    geel 1ouse. The lie ld work has been conducted principally at Biloxi,
    iss.1, and in coopelrationI within thlie FlHorida Agriciultural Experiment
    Stlaion at G(ainesville, Fla. In addition, large qu(iantities of seeds of
    lhe1 Lyon b ean (S. P. I. No. 19979) andl consideralble quantities of the
    llts\y-pw)d lean (S. P. I. No. 21094) and of tlie Maurnitius or B.ngal
    beolln (S. P. I. No. 21:100) have been distributited for field testing.
    Tihe characters by which thlie dileretit species of Stizolobiumi are
    di stI. _.disheet are paincipall in thlie pods4 and seeds; otherwise thlie
    spe'ie ale' lmuili alike both in habit and foliage. Slight differences
    (o1.cct in (lie leaves ad1 flowers, which, Itowever, are not conspicuous.

    The' original source oI) this species has never yet been determined,
    though inl all probability it comes from southern Asia or some
    island of the Malay Ar' hip,,j.,-o. It has been widely distributed
    tlihroi-lJi it the world by the United States Departmentof A-ii lilt lre.
    Seed which is und(loub)tedly the pig,-iiy of such distributions lias
    beenn obl)taine(d Ifrom Saigon, Cochin China (S. P. I. No. 25261), and
    also from Poona, India (S. P. 1. No. 25715). On account of the wide
    distribution which has been made of the seed of this species, it will
    le rather (dillicult to ascertain its exact place of nativity v, which can
    probably be determined only by fIliin. the plant gp,,1i',i under
    conditions where it is undoubtedly wild.

    Wiglit publishes an excellent plate of this plant, which has been
    rep)roduce(l in Bulletin No. 141 of the Bureau of Plant Industry,
    pagne 2S. The only dh- sription given by WVight is as follows:
    Murcua otilis i\Vall. MSS.). The princilmpal difference of this species, if indeed a
    slpecies, and A1. poriiN con-ists in the hairs of its legumes being appressed and almost
    Sill. i ot erect, rigid, and stinging. In all otier respects ihei -ill, Lily i" r'.i
    The flowers in lili are purple. The greater size of tlits is probably attributable to
    cultivation, in whilh state only it is known.
    Voigt (Iortus Suburbainus Calch'uttensis, IS45, p. ': 2) identifies
    the plant with "ti'te variety extensively cultivated in the Mauritius
    and Van DI)ienlen's Land as a table vegetable and also as a fodder
    for cattle." Thlis plant is tile variety with black, shiny seeds corn-
    mon v known as Mauritius bean. \oigt also gives the name "Pois
    noir de Bourbon." ('ordemoy (Flore de Vile de la Reunion, 1,,i.',
    1). 393,) accepts thls identification. This author states that the
    plant on the island of Reunion is known under thlie name of "Pois
    nllascate." Hle also gives a detailed description of tlie plant, which
    lie states was importedl into Reunion to serve for breeding purposes,
    but is now naturalized. We should be inclined to accept this identi-
    fication if it were not for two facts. First, Wallich's figure indicates
    more ptlbhescence on tihe pod than occurs in the Mauritius bean and
    tlhe p)ul)escenc'e is not closely appresse(ld; secondly, we have obtained
    from Maj. A. T. Gtiae, superintendent of tlihe Botanic Garden at
    Calcutta, seeds of two species of Stizolobiumni now 1iiin grown in
    tlie garden at (Cacutla. One of these is NStizol/oium cal'i,;Il,,,.
    already dlescriibed; lthel other is tlie species which we feel confident
    is tlhe same plant that WVallich has figured. It is very different
    from tlie Mauritius bean in that thlie pod is densely covered with
    tawnv pubescence which is not appressed. The following is a
    (detaile(d description:
    Stu.m stolt, growing :0 O t 50t feet long, striate anid furrowed, pubescent with fine
    retMrore hairs; il, i- pi ane, ,vate, 5 to 8 in-ehes longi, mostly obtuse, niucronate,

    Tli s has larger seeds lihan any other species, and thle pods also
    are the lari,'-( and least pubescent. It requires, unfortunately, a
    hmlo er season than the Florida velvet bean byv at least a month.
    Some of tlie clusters of pods of this bean measure 3 feet in length
    and bear over 50 pods.
    The edibility of the pods and seeds has been tested by Mr. S. If.
    Gaitskill, of McIntosh, Ila., who writes:
    We have been_ i. ii, the fleshy-p )d velvet bean a I rial. 1 could not get the ii'_i..-
    to try it until I had ealen it and had Mr. DIedman Iry it; Ohen the negroes tried it. I
    do not c) isider' it a ii, i ., v-red bean, but haIs no bad taste; in fact, is quite palatable,
    and there were no bad effeels at all. I would call it an edible bean.
    We found tlhe bean better than hie pod, and it mihlit be that it would be more
    palatabhlde to let them get fairly ripe and use them as shelled beans.
    An important characteristic in which this species differs front the
    others is thliat the pods do not dehisce at maturity, but the.pods can
    be broken in pieces without the valves separating. This character
    will very likely lbe valuable in crossing within the L-on bean and others
    which dehlisce rather ,too easilyv and thus shatter seed.
