Selliguea hellwigii


Asia-Tropical: New Guinea present
Malesia: mainland of New Guinea.


This is one of the more easily recognisable segregates from the Selliguea enervis-complex, which can be distinguished by the usually pronounced frond dimorphism (although nearly monomorphic plants also occur), the nearly constant presence of hydathodes (rare in the New Guinean representatives of the S. enervis-complex), and the flat, incurved lamina margin (usually thickened, not incurved in the S. enervis-complex).
