Distribution and habitat:— Meniscium cocleanum   is distributed from Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and Panama. It usually grows inside or along the edges of tropical evergreen forest formations, on hillsides, often along trails, at 350–1050 m.

Notes:— Meniscium cocleanum   was, until this study, the only species of the genus known to have buds in the distal pinnae. Smith & Lellinger (1985) stated that the affinities of this species are uncertain. The new species described in this paper ( Meniscium triangularis   ) also has distal proliferous buds, however, M. cocleanum   has completely glabrous laminae whereas M. triangularis   has a dense indument of scales and trichomes abaxially. Other differences have been previously discussed above.
