COSTELLO The distribution maps in this report are compiled from field data collected by Mr. L. S. Cheney' who traveled and collected in the years 1897 and 1898, and from the herbaria of the University of Wisconsin, of the Milwaukee Public Museum, of Marquette University, and of Mr. S. C.

Large dots are used in indicating the range of Quercus muhlen.. bergii. 1. FAGtJS F. GRANDIF'OLIA Ehrhart. Beech (Fig. 1). Distribution mostly eastward; frequent in the counties bordering Lake Michigan. Its limits of distribution westward are well marked. Usually frequent to common wherever it is found. 2. QUERCUS The following key will serve to distinguish the members of this genus occurring in Wisconsin: a. Leaves not bristle tipped; acorns maturing the first year. b b. Winter buds downy; cup of fruit fringed; young branches fre quently corky ridged Q. nuicrocarpa b. Winter buds typically smooth or with only slight hairiness at tips and on margins of scales; cup of fruit not fringed. c c. Buds slightly hairy above middle at times; acorns on peduncles 3—15 cm. long Q. bicolor c. Buds glabrous, bud scales scarious or slightly hairy on margins; acorns sessile or on short peduncles. d ci. Buds broadly ovate, blunt; cup enclosing about ~ of nut; nuts 18—30 mm. long Q. alba d. Buds conical, sharp pointed; cup enclosing about ~ of nut; nuts 15—20 mm. long Q. muhlenbergii a. Leaves bristle tipped; acorns maturing the second year b
