Anemone caroliniana is one of the most common of spring flowers in the vicinity of Grand Island, Nebraska. For several years I have noticed that in a large number of the flowers the pistils are lacking. In 1914 in one collection of 250 specimens, 190 were perfect, 50 had stamens only, and 10 had few or abortive pistils. There were none that had pistils only. The condition found is indicated in table I.
