Tyrone. </p><p>By the discovery, on a Belfast Field Club excursion, on July 25th, of </p><p>Spiranthes Romanzoffiana, at Washing Bay, Co. Tyrone, this rare plant is now known to grow in all five counties which surround Lough Neagh, </p><p>viz., Down, Antrim, Derry, Tyrone, and Armagh. It is here essentially a </p><p>lakeside plant, the stations more than a mile from the lake shore being </p><p>beside rivers which flow into or out of Lough Neagh. In the present instance the plant was first detected by Mr. N. H. Foster, and subsequently traced by the party for a distance of a mile, at least a hundred specimens </p><p>being se^n, occurring sometimes singly, sometimes in little colonies of up to a dozen. The habitat was the usual one?marshy meadows. </p><p>R. Ll. Praeger. </p><p>Dublin, </p><p>Rumex maritimus in North Kerry. </p><p>While walking with a friend along the north side of Tralee Bay towards </p><p>the close of last July, we came upon a fair quantity of this rare Dock </p><p>growing in a small swamp near the sea ; this swamp is probably a pool for </p><p>the greater portion of the year. As at present known, Rumex maritimus </p><p>appears to be confined in Ireland to a few of its southern counties. In </p><p>addition to this North Kerry record, it is only known to occur in single stations in Counties Limerick, Cork, and Wexford. Mr. Colgan considers </p><p>this Dock to be now extinct in Co. Dublin, while several other old records </p><p>are regarded as doubtful. </p><p>Reginald W. Scully. </p><p>Dundrum, Co.
