1. In connection with the first record from Malaysia (Atjeh, North Sumatra)of a species of Schoepfia (Olacaceae), viz. S. fragrans Wall, in Roxb., some notes on the genus are given, including a key to the species of section Schoepfiopsis (emended) and to the two Indian species of Schoepfia.The specimens of the Kew and Leyden Herbaria of these two species are listed. The name Schoepfia ffriffithii Tiegh. is validly published in the present paper, if this was not done before.
2. Smilax pygmaea Merr. (Liliaceae) is recorded from Atjeh, Sumatra.
