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.
