TitleStudies in the fern genera allied to Tectaria Cav. IV. The genus Ctenitis in Asia, Malesia and the Western Pacific
JournalBlumea - Biodiversity, Evolution and Biogeography of Plants
AbstractA survey is presented of past treatment of the genus Ctenitis C. Chr. in the Old World, with the conclusion that the genus has not hitherto been clearly defined. A new generic description covering the species of Asia, Malesia and the Western Pacific is presented, with a new division of the species into two subgroups of informal status, based on scales and spores, and a key to all species. Seventeen new species are described, one new name proposed and four new combinations made. A list of species in the region which, in the opinion of the author, have been wrongly included in Ctenitis, is appended.
