1The epithet acuminata was ignored by Roos (l.c.) in favour of the later speciosa, presumably on account of the homonymy between Acrostichum acuminatum Willd. and A. acuminatum Poir., both published in 1810. However, according to Fuchs and Mortin (l.c.), Willdenow’s name antedates Poiret’s and should accordingly be adopted. 2Juvenile fronds are more distinctly hairy than mature fronds, and generally with longer hairs.
