annotation not in Darwin's hand The plants named calycantha are forms of the several sepcies in which the calyx has become very much emlarged and coloured to a more or less extent (usually greatly) like the corrolla. The name is ‹tha› found so used in the German system & lists such as Martens and Koch Deutschl. Flora, &c. P. elatior var. calycantha was once called a species (P. calycantha) by Retz. Turn

annotation By “communis” is merely intended “common form”. It is not a name. No 5. veris and officinalis are synonymous terms, ‹both› each having been used to denominate the true cowslip which by Linnaeus was called P. veris α. officinalis.
