. Linnaeus compares it to an Arnica from the form of the flower.

Solidago alpina is so different sown indoors in a pot and outdoors in free soil that they can be taken as different species. Linnaeus has witnessed the development himself.

Of Isopyrum thalictroides, Linnaeus wants a full specimen, if Jacquin can not send seeds. Linnaeusís dry specimen is not sufficient.

Linnaeus asks for seeds of Horminum Pyrenaicum and encloses a specimen of the Veronica Jacquin had wanted.
