OBSERVED near Cambelton a very curious scandent Fern (Pteris scandens) rambling over low bushes, in humid situations, the lower larger fronds were digitated, or rather radiated, but towards the tops or extremities of the branches they became trifid, hastated, and lastly lanciolate; it is a delicate plant, of a yellowish lively green, and would be an ornament in a garden.
