Pleocnemia porphyrocaulos


Asia-Tropical: Maluku (Maluku present)
Malesia: Moluccas (known from the type only).


So far as present information goes, the smaller pinnules of the type are not distinguishable from those of P. cumingiana, but the very dark glossy stipes are distinctive, and the largest pinnules are far larger and far more fully pinnate than those on the largest known specimen of P. cumingiana which has the basal pinnule-lobes just free as tertiary leaflets.
