Selliguea subsparsa

Distribution

Asia-Tropical:, Borneopresent; Malaya (Peninsular Malaysiapresent); Sulawesi (Sulawesipresent); Sumatera (Sumaterapresent)
Malesia: Sumatra, Peninsular Malaysia, Borneo, Sulawesi.

Morphology

Variably dimorphic. In Sumatra fairly large forms occur which vary from distinctly to hardly dimorphic, with one to several rows of sori between costa and margin. In Peninsular Malaysia, specimens are more consistently small, dimorphic. A monomorphic form with uniformly narrow, mostly fertile fronds is easily confused with Selliguea setacea, and with narrow forms of S. enervis and S. ceratophylla.
