Here is an interesting link with images of Microgramma brunei with tuber structure details.

There are some macro images of Microgramma bismarckii I have photographed and posted. This was the most fitting place to post the images.

I will follow up with more images of a tuber I have preserved that I plan to section; to get more details on the natural, versus ant created boundaries of the tuber chamber formation.

Here are some Microgramma bismarckii tuber images:

The tuber is split vertically in line with the rhizome attachment and the entrance canal. It has been in a preservation solution. This tuber is from the same fern in the link above.
