for his letter [presumably Vandelli to Linnaeus 18 May 1772Letter L4665] with rare plants and the book on plants [Linnaeus refers to the Fasciculus plantarumVandelli, Domenico Fasciculus
plantarum, cum novis generibus, et
speciebus
(Lisboa, 1771).
]. The book was interesting not only for the rare plants but also for the good descriptions.

Linnaeus hopes that Vandelliís Hortus Olisiponensis will be published soon [Linnaeus refers to Vandellis work with the Florae lusitanicae et brasiliensis specimenVandelli, Domenico Florae
lusitanicae et brasiliensis specimen et
epistolae ab eruditis viris Carolo a
Linné, Antonio De Haen ad
Dominicum Vandelli scriptae
(Coimbra
1788).

In his garden, Linnaeus has flowering specimens of Sisymbrium parra and some other species, grown from seeds received from Vandelli.
