Linnaeus states that he has answered the questions on Orobus pannonicus and Scandix infesta, to which Jacquin said he still waits for answers. He is sure he referred Jacquin to the Acta Petropolitana, (Linnaeus refers to Novi commentarii academiae scientiarum imperialis Petropolitanae ), for the Scandix.
Linnaeus can not determine Selinum austriacum from the plate alone; there are so many species of Selinum, so only Jacquin who has them as living specimens can distinguish between them.

Linnaeus encloses some seeds to be sown outdoors. He asks a question on Jacquin’s specimen of Doronicum.
