Notes

Doryopteris concolor var. nicklesii   is a terrestrial fern, with closely spaced fronds, deltoids, measuring 10-35 cm long and 5-15 cm wide. The lamina is bipinnatifid. Pinnae measure 2-6 cm long and 0.7 to 3 cm wide. The petiole is covered by scattered scales. The sori, linear, protected by false indusia, are continuous at the edges of the leaf blade except at the bottom of sinus. Doryopteris concolor var. nicklesii   usually grows on the banks of rivers in rainforest.
