Consists of a large number of type-written accounts of various genera or small groups of species which are difficult to identify. The accounts are by a variety of specialists, some previously published elsewhere.

Intended to be used in conjunction with Wiggington & Graham's "Guide to the Identification of some of the more Difficult Vascular Plant Species" (W&G), this work extends the coverage to approiximately 200 taxonomic groups. Some accounts replace those in W&G, some are additional.

The index is a combined index to the present work and W&G.
