The discussion continues also on Brassica campestris, and on how it differs from Brassica orientalis. Jacquin is not satisfied with Linnaeusís previous answer and closes by asking for seeds and other details of the plant.
Also on variants of Carduus and Phleum schoenoides there is discussion and inconsistency between scholars, among them Adolf MurrayMurray, Adolph (1751-1803).
Jacquin sends a twig of Cyperum Pannonicum. He can not decide on Gallium hierosolymitanum as he has not seen it.
Four more plates are sent from Florae Austriacae, sive plantarum selectarumJacquin, Nicolaus Joseph, baron von
A dried plant is enclosed with the plate of a Senecio, since Jacquin does not find the species in works published by Linnaeus.
Jacquin is waiting for answers from Linnaeus, since he can not continue with the printing of the work before hearing from Linnaeus.
