Pteris barklyae (Pteridaceae): A new combination and neotypication of Adiantum pallens for the fern flora of the Indian Ocean Islands

Liang Zhang, XIN-Mao Zhou, Xin-Fen Gao, Libing Zhang

Abstract


Pellaea barklyae, a fern endemic to the Seychelles, is transferred to the genus Pteris based on recent molecular studies. We also neotypified Adiantum pallens Swartz, a species endemic to Madagascar, Mauritius, and La Réunion.
