Pullen 7964 (Milne Bay Distr.) has pinnae to 2.6 cm wide, lobed a little more than 2, with veins to 13 pairs.
Womersley & Millar 8373 (Morobe Distr.) is reported to have had a caudex 150 cm tall; its sori are young and not elongate.
Craven & Schodde 277 from Bougainville had a caudex 60 cm tall, base of stipe to first large pinna 95 cm, fronds in all 3.25 m long; my record is that it has glands on body of sporangia, which needs checking.
