- species ad 50, pleraeque in zona temperata v. frigidiore hemisphaerii borealis crescentes (B&H), species to 50, many growing in the temperate zone or colder of the northern hemisphere.

- species 2, altera in regione temperata hemisphaerii borealis, in America australi extratropica et in Australia crescens, altera in America occidentali extratropica tam boreali quam australi (B&H), species 2, one growing in the temperate region of the northern hemisphere, in extratropical south America and in Australia, the other in extrotropical western America, as much northern as southern.
