Pronephrium giluwense


Asia-Tropical, Buso River, Morobe District present, Papua New Guinea present
Malesia: Papua New Guinea. The only other collection is Clemens 12110 D, from a branch of the Buso River, Morobe District, at 1500-1800 m (MICH); this is a less mature plant with longer apical lamina than the type; it differs also in having a few glands on the lower surface of pinnae.


The type plant perhaps did not attain its full size before dying. Possibly this species should be transferred to Sphaerostephanos but it does not match any known species in that genus.
