Taxonomy

M. G. Price, who saw many plants in the field, reports that there are two forms of this species, a larger one with erect sterile fronds and a smaller one with horizontal sterile fronds, also that spores of the two differ. Herbarium specimens do not show this difference clearly. Further field studies are needed.

Cytology
