Occurs as epiphyte in montane rainforest.

Taxon discussion

This species can be recognized by the pendent leaves, one row of areoles between costa and margin and pinnae sessile to adnate ( Moran 1995c). Affinities of P. flagellare  as well as the relationships among Polypodium  s.s. species are still uncertain ( Tejero-Díez 2005).
