Notes

The scanty material of this genus is inadequate to decide with certainty how many species should be recognized. It is difficult to assess the significance of some of the rather marked differences between specimens. In view of the nature of the material available I feel that the broader view of HOOKER.f. & THOMSON of species is preferable and I therefore recognize only two species in the genus.
Baterium was first reduced by DIELS (1910).
