Asplenium furcratum SN16420b : 4 posts by 2 authors. Attachments (1) - 4 mb.
Asplenium furcratum J Sm, wild dwarf fern from Western Ghats Tamilnadu from my 34 year old collection.
Must be 34 yr. old nomenclature, too!  The correct name is Asplenium aethiopicum subsp. aethiopicum

And the synonym is spelt FURCATUM, not furcratum. Was there no literature available for these mistaken identifications and misnamings?  Have you not got Manickam & Irudayaraj? And the Annotated Checklist of Indian pteridophytes?
