The length of pinna-stalks varies in different specimens; those of the type of M. talamauensis only 3 mm, on Beccari's type 12 mm, on a specimen of Matthew's from the same locality 5 mm. Yates 699 from Brastagi is rather intermediate between this species and S. penniger, with sessile pinnae and setiferous sporangia.
