This rare little fern has lately been found in Tasmania by Mr. Long, of the Museum staff. It is the smallest of our Filmy Ferns, and is doubtfully distinct from Hymenophyllurn tunbridgense. Its rhizome is wiry and dry, and sustains few fan-like branches, green and deli-cate, each of about 1 em. diameter. The noticeable feature as distinct from H. tunbridgense is that the spines on margins and sporangia are reduced to a minimum.
