Distribution and habitat:— Meniscium hostmannii   is distributed in Venezuela, Colombia, Guyana, French Guiana, Surinam, Brazil and Bolivia. It is associated with forest formations, where it usually grows on hillsides, along streams or trails exposed to the sun, at 40–1200 m.

Notes:— Meniscium hostmannii   has been treated as a synonym of Meniscium arborescens Humboldt et Bonpland ex Willdenow (1810: 133)   by some authors ( Maxon & Morton 1938; Smith 1993; Smith 1995a, b). However, based on studies of the types housed in P, B and K herbaria, we concluded that M. arborescens   and M. salzmanni Fée (1852: 223)   represent a single species, and that Meniscium hostmannii   is more similar to M. longifolium Desvaux (1827: 223)   . They match in having linear pinnae, stalked basal pinnae with usually cuneate bases, and dense indument on abaxial surface of the pinnae and sporangia. Meniscium hostmannii   has an abaxial laminar indument composed of a mixture of scales and acicular trichomes scattered on the costae and the veins but it is glabrous between the veins, while M. longifolium   has acicular trichomes, dense to moderate and numerous short-stipitate glands on costae, veins and laminar surface, and rarely with filiform scales on the costae and veins.
