Type
Type: Timor, Guichenot s.n. (P, holo.)
Vegetative Multiplication Rhizomes
Rhizome erect with brown to dark brown lanceolate entire or ciliate often thinly pilose scales up to 6 mm long
Morphology Leaves
Fronds tufted, 0.3–1 m tall
Morphology Leaves Stipes
Stipe 12–40(–60) cm long, thinly pubescent with minute whitish hairs and scaly at base
Morphology Leaves Leaf lamina
Lamina lanceolate, deeply 2-pinnatifid, 25–60 cm long, ± 30 cm wide, apex acuminate with deeply pinnatifid terminal segment; lower 2–4 pair of pinnae deflexed and somewhat reduced; middle pinnae 8–16 cm long, 1.2–2.2 cm wide, narrowly oblong, acuminate, deeply pinnatifid; lobes narrowly oblong, 4–10 mm long, 2–5 mm wide, somewhat falcate, entire, obtuse, hairy on both surfaces and sometimes with small capitate hairs; veins 7–8 pairs, the basal pair anastomosing at a very obtuse angle below the sinus with next pair to edge of sinus
Morphology Reproductive morphology Sori Indusium
Indusium hairy, the hairs sometimes very long.
Ecology
Evergreen rain forest, often riverine, and on rocks near falls; 150–2400 m
Note
R.B. & A.J. Faden 74/369 (Lushoto District: E Usambaras, Derema, Hunga R., near small falls, 30 Mar. 1974) and other specimens show considerable variation in the anastomosing of the basal veins, some joining and having an excurrent vein to the sinus others quite free but close at base of sinus (all on one pinna). This is, I feel, just normal variation rather than hybridisation which is very often a facile explanation based on no evidence. Some specimens I have merely annotated as C. hispidula/gueinziana intermediates.
