Notes

Pteris togoensis  is a terrestrial fern, with erect or shortly creeping rhizome. Fronds are scaly, in clumps, often reaching over 1m long (Fig. 17a, b). The petiole, 20 to 45 cm long, is reddish at the extreme base, stramineous above, canaliculate and smooth. The lamiina is bipinnatifid, 20 to 60 cm long; composed by 7-14 pairs of lateral pinnae. The lower pinnae are opposite, 4-5cm spaced, stalked, falcate, forming an angle of 80° with the rachis. The pinnae have a linear-oblong outline, divided almost to the rachis in 20-25 contiguous segments, oblong-obtuse, entire. The tip of the pinnae is linear, entire, of about 2 cm. The first pair of pinnae has a lower pinnatifid auricule. The upper pinnae are subopposite or alternate, sessile. The rachis is stramineous and glabrous. The lower side of lamina carries some yellow glands. The costa is smooth, with a spine on the upper side, at the insertion of the midrib of the lobe. The leaf blade has a sub-coriaceous texture. The ribs are free, usually bifurcated towards the middle. The sori do not reach the top of the lobe, nor the base of the sinus (Fig. 17c, d). Pteris togoensis  grows almost everywhere in the forests, agro-forests, fallow land, roadsides and river banks.
