County records and major range extensions for angiosperms from somervell county. texas.

Floristic work in Somervell County, mainly in and around Fossil Rim Wildlife Center (FRWC), a 704 ha breeding facility for threatened and endangered animals located in Glen Rose, Texas, in Somervell County was conducted in association with restoration projects at the facility. Extensive grazing and browsing by exotic herbivores has occurred on nearly 1200 acres and about 60 ha in native-grazed portions of the park have been part of habitat restoration programs for the black-capped vireo (Vireo atricapilla) and golden-cheeked warbler (Dendroica cluysoparia). Treatments for habitat restoration in these areas included razing, burning and seeding projects. During the course of these restoration projects at FRWC, plants were collected as voucher specimens; many of which had not been reported in Somervell County.

Plants were collected primarily from areas of limited grazing or ungrazed areas during the period of March - November 2005. Additionally, previous collections from Somervell County were located in the Tarleton State University Herbarium (TAC) and included in the study. Plant specimen identification and taxonomy was determined using Shinners and Mahler 's Illustrated Flora of North Central Texas (Diggs et al.1999). Specimen occurrence and distribution records were compared to data available in the Atlas of the Vascular Plants of Texas (Turner et al. 2003a; 2003b). Voucher specimens were deposited in the Tarleton State University Herbarium (TAC). Taxa new to Somervell County but occurring in bordering counties are listed in Table 1. Those not reported from bordering counties are discussed as major range extensions for the region.

MALVACEAE

Sida abutifolia Mill. (spreading sida; TAC 4153) is a native mallow reported from Tarrant County northeast of Somervell County and from the southeast in Hill County (Turner et al. 2003a).

(stemless evening-primrose; TAC 4136) is a native primrose reported from the northeast of Somervell County in Tarrant County and from the southeast in McLennan County (Turner et al. 2003a). This collection in Somervell County fills in a distribution gap between the above-mentioned localities and numerous western counties where it is reported (Turner et al. 2003a).

POACEAE

(wild oats; TAC 4092) is an introduced grass from the Mediterranean that occurs in Hill and Tarrant counties to the southeast and northeast of Somervell County, respectively (Turner et al. 2003b). Its presence in Somervell County extends its range westward, where the nearest locality is Brown County (Turner et al. 2003b).

POLYGONACEAE

Rumex crispus L. (curly dock); TAC 4162) is an introduced dock from Europe (Diggs et al. 1999). It has been collected from Tarrant and McLennan to the east and Brown County to the west (Turner et al. 2003a). The specimen from Somervell County fills a distribution gap between known eastern and western localities.

Diggs et al. (1999) considered it a component of the North Central Texas flora and listed its range as the western two-thirds of Texas. The collection of hillside vervain represents a major range extension of the species' previously known range.

FIRST RECORD OF WATER BEARS (PHYLUM TARDIGRADA) FROM SAINT MARTIN, LESSER ANTILLES, WEST INDIES

Tardigrades (Phylum Tardigrada), commonly known as water bears, are microscopic animals found in marine, freshwater, and terrestrial habitats. Terrestrial species occur in mosses, lichens, liverworts, and leaf litter, and are renowned for their ability to enter a cryptobiotic state (anhydrobiosis) in response to desiccation. Over 960 species of marine, freshwater, and terrestrial tardigrade are known worldwide (Guidetti & Bertolani 2005; Degma & Guidetti 2007; Degma et al. 2010). The presence of more than 200 freshwater and terrestrial species has been reported in North America (Meyer 8z Hinton 2007).

The first investigations of water bears in the West Indies were made in the mid-Twentieth Century, when du Bois-Reymond Marcus (1960) found four species in the Netherlands Antilles. Since then, there have been few studies of terrestrial and freshwater tardigrades from the islands of the Caribbean Sea. These studies have been limited to Puerto Rico (Fox & Garcia-Moll 1962; Beasley 1981), Dominican Republic (Schuster & Toftner 1982; Kaczmarek et al. 2007), and Cuba (Kaczmarek & Michalczyk 2002) in the Greater Antilles; and Curacao (du Bois-Reymond Marcus 1960), Los Testigos (du Bois-Reymond Marcus 1960), and Saint Lucia (lharos 1982) in the Lesser Antilles. This paper represents the first record of tardigrades from the Caribbean island of Saint Martin.

Saint Martin, a small (87 km2) island in the Leeward Islands of the Lesser Antilles, is divided politically into a northern, French portion (Collectivite de Saint-Martin) and a southern, Dutch portion (Sint Maarten). Formed by volcanic activity about 17 million years ago (Christman 1953), the island is very hilly in topography (maximum elevation 424 m). There are no rivers; rainfall averages 99.5 cm per year. The interior hills still contain substantial areas of dry tropical forest.

Four samples of cryptogams were collected at two sites in the French portion of the island: one moss sample from rocks alongside a tropical forest trail at Loterie Farm (18[degrees]04'40.0"N, 63[degrees]03'40.6"W; 77 m elev.; collected 4 January 2011), and one squamulose lichen and two moss samples from a stone wall alongside Rue de Colombier, a rural road leading to the interior village of Colombier (18[degrees]04'34.3"N, 63[degrees]03'52.5"W; 57 m elev.; collected 6 January, 2011). This collection offers only a preliminary look at the tardigrade fauna of Saint Martin; it should not be considered a comprehensive survey. Samples were stored in sealed paper envelopes. In the laboratory samples were soaked in water overnight, thus rehydrating anhydrobiotic water bears. After sieving (42 gm mesh diameter), the samples were examined with a dissecting microscope. Tardigrade specimens and eggs were mounted on slides in polyvinyl lactophenol. Sample processing was completed by early February 2011. Comparisons with species not personally examined were based on their description.

The four samples contained 55 tardigrades and 2 eggs, representing six species: Milnesium cf. tardigradum Doyere, 1840 (two specimens), Doryphoribius quadrituberculatus Kaczmarek and Michalczyk, 2004 (six specimens), Macrobiotus rubens Murray, 1907 (two specimens), Paramacrobiotus cf. richtersi (13 specimens), Macrobiotus coronatus de Barros, 1942 (32 specimens and two eggs), and Minibiotus cf. intermedius (two specimens). Moss at Loterie Farm had four species of tardigrade (Macrobiotus coronatus, Macrobiotus rubens, Paramacrobiotus cf. richtersi, and Minibiotus cf. intermedius). At Rue de Colombier the lichen contained Milnesium cf. tardigradum and Macrobiotus coronatus and the moss contained Dotyphoribius quadrituberculatus and Macrobiotus coronatus. Specimens are archived in the W.A.K. Seale Museum, MeNeese State University, Lake Charles, Louisiana 70609, USA (slides SM LA 9901-9910).

Doryphoribius. quach-inthercylaitts has previously only been found in Costa Rica (Kaczmarek & Michalczyk 2004). Macrobiotus coronatus is a cosmopolitan species, and is widely distributed in the Americas, including the Dominican Republic in the West Indies (Schuster & Toftner 1982). Specimens and eggs of Macrobiotus coronatus found in Saint Martin match the illustrations and detailed morphometric data provided by Pilato et al. (2000). Although du Bois-Reymond Marcus (1960) reported the presence of Macrobiotus rubens on Los Testigos, Ramazzotti & Maucci (1983) noted that her identification was in error. Specimens from St. Martin exactly matched the original description of Murray (1907); in the absence of eggs the species can be distinguished from other Macrobiotus species with similar placoids and claws by the presence of conspicuous orange to reddish brown inclusions. Therefore this is the first record of Macrobiotus rubens from a Caribbean island.

I wish to thank Harry L. Meyer for providing logistical support. Lukasz Kaczmarek kindly loaned a paratype of Doryphoribius quadrituberculatus for comparison.
