Notes

Doryopteris kirkii  has a short rhizome, closely spaced fronds, wearing very thickened scales in the center and very thin at the edges (Fig. 11a, b). There is a dimorphism within fronds. The petiole of sterile fronds is black, 15 to 20 cm long, scaly at the extreme base, channeled. The sterile blade is 7 to 10 cm long as wide. It is deltoid, bipinnatifid, all pinnae are opposite and connected by a large wing. The lower pinnae are sickle-shaped, about 6-7 cm long, very developed basiscopically, divided down to costa in acute pinnules, also lobed. The texture of the leaf blade is sub-coriaceous and its surface is glabrous. The fertile fronds have a slightly longer stalk than the sterile fronds, with the same shape, but more deeply lobed. The rachis and midrib are black and hairless. The sori are linear, marginal, interrupted and slightly covered by a pale and narrow lobe of the lamina, as a false indusium (Fig. 11c, d). The plant usually grows on rocks, cliffs, banks of rivers and roadsides in forest areas.
