10. Polystichum sect. Subfimbriata Li Bing Zhang
[sect. nov.]

拟流苏耳蕨组 ni liu su er jue zu

Sectio Polysticho sect. Fimbriatis similis, sed ab eo pinnis ovatis atque auriculis apice obtusis differt.

Type: Polystichum subfimbriatum W. M. Chu & Z. R. He.

Plants evergreen. Lamina 1-pinnate, dark green, leathery. Rachis without bulbils. Pinnae ovate; auricles obtuse at apex. Microscales filiform.

? About one species: China.

The type of the section, Polystichum subfimbriatum, has been placed in P. sect. Scleropolystichum Daigobo in FRPS (5(2): 37. 2001) based on its leathery lamina. However, P. subfimbriatum does not belong to any existing sections of the genus and should be placed in a section of its own. The relationship between P. fimbriatum and P. subfimbriatum might not be close.
