Presl cited both Cuming 107 and 33 under P. cumingiana; 33 is P. presliana.

M. G. Price, who made intensive studies of ferns on Mt Makiling, found both P. cumingiana and P. presliana growing in the forest there, and tells me that he regards them as quite distinct.

The illustration in Gard. Chron. (1874) shows sinus-teeth clearly and also a characteristic spore; the plant had been imported from the Philippines.
