Taxon discussion

This species can be distinguished from Pleopeltis macrocarpa  (Bory ex Willd) Kaulf., species from which it was previously recognized as the variety Pleopeltis macrocarpa var. laciniata  Stolze, by the laminar scales concolorous with laciniate margins ( Tryon et al. 1993). It can also be recognized by the larger lamina and also by its shape, with broad to narrow-cuneate base ( Tryon et al. 1993).
