  1. Hydnophytum spec. from "inland mangrove" near Siasiada village Certainly related to Hydnophytum radicans.
  2. Huge Hydnophytum - possibly H. petiolatum - Milne Bay area - PNG The tuber certainly measures 50-70 cm in diameter
  3. Lecanopteris sinuosa - Normanby Island Certainly the most extreme form of this species I saw so far. The "thorns" from which the leaves emerge are much bigger than in the other varieties I saw so far:
  4. Myrmecodia spec. - Mt. Kaindi - below summit - PNG This species certainly is related to M. horrida, M. ferox and M. gracilispina. However, the leaves are much more spathulate than any of these species and the shoot is far less spiny. This species, however, shares the "ant tunnels" in the shoot.

    Anthorrhiza chrysacantha

    Anthorrhiza chrysacantha Huxley & Jebb - Mt Kaindi - summit - PNG This picture nicely shows the typical branching of this species. The smaller leaves with less prominent lateral veins, the smaller, less undulate leaves and this characteristic branching pattern sets A. chrysacantha apart from the otherwise very similar A. caerulea:

    spore seedling

    Hello Jeff, I frequently have sporelings in the greenhouse but they never became weedy such as other ferns. I was sowing spores in vitro. No problems. All the best Andreas

    The problem is the transfer of content. I do not know if there is any way to extract the content to transfer to another forum. All the best Andreas

    I'm very glad that Frank gives this forum another chance after I decided to step back. Good luck!!! All the best Andreas
  13. A herbarium sheet with a name tag put on it on is not a publication. Without a valid publication it's a nomen nudum. These rules are very clear. All the best Andreas

    Time for a change?

    Hallo all, I'm having a terribly busy season and simply have no time left to run this forum. After I had asked for somebody to take over responsibility and nobody was interested, I decided to step back and just see what's happening. My impression - not much... Saying that, I consider the whole attempt failed. If somebody is still interested to run this forum, I'm more than happy to transfer the domain. However, I'll not make more money transfers to Invision. So sooner or later, this place will be gone. It seems sad reality, that the interest for this fascinating group of plants is far too small to have enough dedicated participants to runn such a place successfully. I will still grow these plants and might open a few galleries with my pictures on my website after this forum is gone. All the best Andreas
  15. No, the paper by Low et al has been published. That is what counts. Rule of priority. All the best Andreas
