New combinations and typifications in Haplopteris (Pteridaceae: Vittarioideae)


Five new combinations are made in Haplopteris C.Presl (Pteridaceae: Vittarioideae), involving four transfers from Vittaria Sm. and one from Monogramma Comm. ex Schkuhr. Lectotypes are designated for V. pluridichotoma Bonap., V. schaeferi Hieron. and V. stenophylla Copel. Additionally, H. stenophylla (Copel.) C.W.Chen & S.Linds. is recognised as distinct from H. mediosora (Hayata) X.C.Zhang based on rhizome scale morphology.
