1. The type specimens of the species of Anthoceros created by J. F. C. Montagne are described. 2. The following additional observations were made: Anthoceros dissectus Mont. belongs to the Podostemaceae. Dendroceros endiviaefolius (Mont.) comb. nov. raises the problem of the generic differences between Megaceros Campb. and Dendroceros Nees, a matter which is briefly discussed The description of the sterile type material is augmented by an examination of fertile material collected by Dusen. The species is probably closely related to Dendroceros giganteus (Lehmann et Lindenberg) comb. nov. Dendroceros cichoraceus (Mont.) Steph. is very closely related to D. crispus (Sw.) Nees, and may even be a synonym of that species. Anthoceros fuciformis Mont from Reunion appears closely related to certain anomalous material from West Africa, which lacks stomata in the sporophyte.
