1 Selliguea lateritia has been extensively confused with S. heterocarpa; see under that species for a discussion of the distinction. 3. Selliguea lateritia may be increasing in frequency, especially in Borneo, with many recent records. 2. Polypodium taeniophyllum represents an extremely narrow form, but is connected to the typical form by a series of intermediates. Plants from New Guinea have slightly thicker and stiffer scales which are not acicular and squarrose. They are more or less intermediate to S. heterocarpa, which seems to be absent from New Guinea.
