Parathelypteris beddomei var. brassii


Asia-Tropical, Eastern New Guinea present
Malesia: Eastern New Guinea, at 2000-3500 m.


Some specimens have a partly creeping rhizome but in almost all cases some fronds are in rather dense tufts. It is possible that this variety represents an adaptation to conditions at higher altitudes and in more exposed places than the normal habitats for var. beddomei in Western Malesia. Christensen wrongly stated that the type is exindusiate.
