Notes

Adiantum incisum   has a short and erect rhizome (Fig. 6a), with linear scales at the base, 4 to 5 mm long over 0.2 mm wide, blackish, with a narrow margin pale. The fronds, erect or drooping, are pinnate and are arranged in tufts. They are 10 to 40 cm long. The rachis and stem are dark brown. The lower half of the stem is densely hairy, and sometimes wears narrow pale brown scales. Pinnae, 0.7 to 2.3 cm long and 4-11 mm wide, become smaller and smaller at the top (Fig. 6b). They are alternate, oblong to obliquely triangular, slightly to deeply incised or lobed at the outer and lower margins, entire at the lower margin. The base is cuneiform or rarely rounded, generally, sparsely to densely covered with white or brown hairs (Fig. 6c). The sori are circular or oblong, 1 to 3.5 mm wide (Fig. 6d). Adiantum incisum   usually grows on damp rocks and mountainsides in forest areas.
