A new species of vittarioid ferns (Pteridaceae) that has long been regarded as Haplopteris amboinensis or H. forrestiana (a synonym of H. doniana), is described here as Haplopteris yakushimensis. Both macro-and micromorphological characteristics were compared with these two species. Chartaceous matured fronds, shallowly grooved adaxial costae and o...

... The morphological comparison of C. sondangii and similar species is presented in the Table 1. Data on plant morphology are based on personal observations and on following literature sources: Lund (1987), Chen & Jeffrey (2009), Subedi et al. (2011), Suddee (2014, Hsu (2020). ...
... The simplified morphology of Antrophyum provides very few characters for species delimitation. Among those, the morphology of apical cells of soral paraphyses is probably the most important and widely used character (Zhang 1998;Chen et al. 2015;Schuettpelz et al. 2016). Previous studies usually recognized three main types of soral paraphyses: filiform, taeniform, and club-shaped (Zhang 1998;Zhang et al. 2013;Chen et al. 2017). ...
... Yakushima (Yaku Island) is a roughly circular island with a circumference of approximately 130 km and is located approximately 60 km south of the main island of Kyushu. Since the initial taxonomic review of 45 species of vascular plants endemic to Yakushima (Yahara et al. 1987), six additional new species have been described in the same region (Yahara and Tsukaya 2008;Katsuyama 2009;Chen et al. 2014;Hori et al. 2015;Suetsugu and Fukunaga 2016;. Furthermore, an unknown taxon of Cardamine was also discovered in the mountainous area of Yakushima (Kudoh 2017). ...
