Selliguea archboldii


Asia-Tropical: New Guinea present
Malesia: New Guinea.


Recognisable by the very narrow scales and consistently continuous coenosori. Selliguea albicaula is similar, but differs in having the scales much more sparsely set on a distinctly white-waxy rhizome and in the almost clathrate structure of the thick costa of the scales. However, there are some intermediate specimens, and it is possible that the specific distinction can no longer be upheld as more material becomes available.
