It has short, erect rhizomes, and chartaceous, glabrous, pinnate leaves of 10-50 cm length and 4-10 cm width.
The wings are chartaceous, distally attenuate and crenate, pubescent, with simple subparallel venation oriented transverse to the fruit body and radiating toward the distal margins of the wings.
5 cm, not narrowed at the base, apex rounded to subacute and minutely apiculate, greenish-glaucous with darker green irregular cross-veins mainly by transmitted light, chartaceous, sparsely and inconspicously white-lepidote and covered on both sides by a thin layer of white wax, apical margins not revolute.
Taxon Amphineuron Cyclosorus Frond venation anastomosing anastomosing covered capitate hairs, hispid, with glands with glands texture chartaceous herbaceous/ chartaceous Sporangia seldom glandular glabrous/ hispid Indusium indusiate indusiate Spore ornamentation tuberculate lophate Chromosome base number x = 36 x = 36 Taxon Dryopteris Lastrea Frond venation free simple/forked covered scales, with long few soft hairs flexible hairs.
Leaves alternate, often clustered apically; petiolate, the petioles clasping; blades elliptic to oblanceolate, chartaceous to sub-coriaceous, pinnately veined, margin entire, glabrous.
15 x 11 cm, inconspicuously and minutely brown lepidote on both sides, coriaceous, outside dark brown colored near the base, inside pale colored; blades linear, not narrowed at base, 35-40 x 6-7 cm, thinly coriaceous, green, chartaceous, inconspicously and sparsely white-lepidote to glabrous, apex acute and shortly apiculate.
Leaves alternate; petiolate; blades elliptical to oblong, chartaceous or less commonly sub-coriaceous, pinnately veined, margin entire, completely glabrous to weakly arachnoid beneath.
3 mm, dark brown, slightly pubescent, the hairs hyaline, soft, straight, 2-celled, simple, appressed; lamina 2-5 cm long, erect or slightly arcuate, linear, chartaceous, hemidimorphic; sterile portion deeply pinnatisect, abruptly reduced at the base, the basal segment decurrent, but not ending in a long and narrow wing to the petiole base, the segments at the medial portion 1.
Leaves alternate, deciduous; commonly petiolate; blades ovate to orbicular, coriaceous, less commonly chartaceous, caducous, pinnately veined, margin entire, both surfaces densely tomentose to glabrate.
Inflorescence erect, simple, ellipsoid to cylindric, 6u8 x 4u5 cm, 30 to 45-flowered; floral bracts broadly ovate, acute, 18u28 x 10u20 mm, tightly imbricate except for the spreading apex, thin coriaceous to chartaceous, very brittle when dried, slightly nerved, sparsely appressed-lepidote, bright golden yellow; flowers erect, subsessile, mostly concealed by the floral bracts, spreading at ca 30[degrees] from the axis at anthesis; sepals elliptic, acute, 17u18 mm long, thin coriaceous, nearly even, the adaxial pair carinate and connate for 4u5 mm, yellow green; corolla erect, exserted beyond the floral bract at anthesis; petals cucculate, lingulate, obtuse, 24-25 mm long, yellow tipped white or pale yellow-green.
3 mm, and scales like those of the stems; lamina 94-149 x 40-65 cm, chartaceous, 1-pinnate-pinnatifid, lanceolate, gradually tapering to a pinnatifid apex, with proliferous buds in the axils of distal pinnae; rachises with septate hairs 0.
Inflorescence erect, to 30-45 cm long, 3-4 mm in diameter, purplish, white lepidote, simple or with 1-2 branches at the base; branches ascending in 45[degrees] angle in relation to the rachis, to 14-16 cm long; primary bracts lanceolate, attenuate, acuminate, to 30-37 mm long, 10 mm wide, chartaceous when dry, sparsely white lepidote; floral bracts lanceolate, chartaceous, long attenuate at the apex, to 12-25 mm long, 10 mm wide, much longer than the pedicels, the basal ones equaling the flowers, sparsely white lepidote outside.
