Taxonomy

1 Small plants may be confused with P. lanceolata, but can be recognised by the monomorphic, very stiff-leathery fronds, the thicker, rigid rhizome and the entire, short, appressed rhizome scales. 2. Niphobolus fissus Blume has frequently been misinterpreted, and reports under this name (and its synonyms) from outside the distribution area of P. longifolia as outlined here refer to either P. mannii (Giesenh.) Ching or to P. porosa.
