Hypochnus is a genus of fungi. The original treatment of the genus by Elias Magnus Fries included various wholly unrelated species, therefore it is now considered a "nomen

Some species, especially the narrow endemics, are decreasing in abundance due to loss of habitat. The South African natives "D.

"Kunzea ambigua" was initially described as "Leptospermum
" by James Edward Smith, before English botanist George Claridge Druce gave it its current binomial name in 1917. The generic name honours German naturalist Gustav Kunze, while the specific epithet is derived from the Latin adjective "ambiguus" 'doubtful' or 'uncertain'. Its common names are white kunzea and tick bush.
In botanical nomenclature the phrase "nomen dubium" has no status, although it is informally used for names whose application has become confusing. In this regard however, its synonym "nomen
" is of more frequent use. In botany, such names may be proposed for rejection.
Not much is known about the species. While it is endemic to New Zealand, the larvae have so far only been recorded feeding on naturalised plant species: "Nasturtium officinale", "Trifolium
", "Trifolium repens"', "Tropaeolum majus". The larvae also seem to feed on the leaves of "Trifolium caucasicum".
, also known as Wyeth biscuitroot, is a perennial herb of the family Apiaceae that grows in the northwestern United States and into British Columbia in dry areas. The leaves are divided into many blades, and stems can be slightly purple and are 6–24 cm tall. Yellow flowers in compound umbels appear from late April to June.
Recognition of the species was only maintained by Sprague (1928), who contended that De Candolle's species was discrete from the plant described by Hooker. Casper, while omitting the species from his revision of the genus in 1966, noted that "P. orchidioides" was probably a "nomen dubium vel
". However, the identification of "P. orchidioides" was left unaddressed and was forgotten, so that when Hans Luhrs described stoloniferous "Pinguicula" specimens in 1995, he did so under a new name: P. stolonifera.
Members of the genus are extremely contractile. When startled, "Spirostomum
" can contract to less than half its extended length within 1/200 of a second (a contraction speed similar to that of the ciliate Vorticella). As it contracts, the cortex of the cell twists and widens, and its spiral structure becomes visible. The mechanism of Spirostomum's contractility was first studied by Ernst Haeckel in 1873 and has continued to attract scholarly attention.
Bishop's undergraduate work with Hickson was her first major research effort, concerning the reproduction of "Spirostomum
", a large ciliate that has been described as "wormlike". In 1923, while working at Manchester University, Bishop was appointed an honorary research fellow. In 1924, she became a part-time instructor for the Department of Zoology at Cambridge, one of only two women, both of whom were sometimes marginalised. For example, she was not allowed to sit at the table with the men of the department at tea: instead, she sat on a first-aid kit. There, Bishop continued her work with "Spirostomum" as the only protozoologist on the faculty.
" grows in chaparral, woodlands, and desert habitat. It is an annual herb growing decumbent or upright with stems up to 30 centimeters (1 foot) long. The leaves are widely lance-shaped or oblong and sometimes have lobes, with woolly hairs on both sides. The inflorescence produces one flower head containing many yellow disc florets and 6 to 10 yellow, white, or bicolored ray florets which are each 2 millimeters to one centimeter (0.08-0.40 inches) long. The fruit is a rough-haired achene which may have a very small pappus.
Yolla Bolly bedstraw is a species of plants in the family Rubiaceae, native to British Columbia, northern California and southeastern Oregon. It has for years been known by the scientific name Galium
, but under the international rules of nomenclature this use of the name is unacceptable because it was already used for a French plant before Wight applied it to this American species. The provisional name "Galium stebbinsii" has been suggested, but this is at yet (May 2014) unpublished, so another name could eventually be chosen instead.
