In the summer of 1891, Per Axel Rydberg and his assistant, Julius Hjalmar Flodman, collected plants in western Nebraska for the United States Department of Agriculture. They collected many firstrecords for Nebraska as well as some that became type specimens of Rydberg's and other botanists' names. In the following autumn and winter, Ryd­berg made a detailed, typewritten, carbon copied 35page Report and 37page List of specimens from that trip; one carbon copy is in the Bessey Herbarium (Neb) at the University of NebraskaLincoln. It is these documents that we present here, extensively annotated with our geographic clarifications, original and updated nomenclature, and citations of specimens in Neb and elsewhere.
