Diagnosis
Fronds palmate, large. Pinnae pinnate, free from the base, fertile fronds differ from sterile ones. Sterile pinnules linear, long, margins entire or slightly waved, apex subacute. Pinnule bases as wide as the pinnule or slightly extended, touching, crowded, but not overlapping. Midrib conspicuous, secondary veins forming ovoid, rhomboid, or hexagonal meshes of almost equal size, running in two or three rows along the pinnule. Sterile and fertile pinnules mixed on the same pinnae, or on separate pinnae or separate fronds. Fertile pinnules narrow linear, widely spaced, or bases extended, in touch, apex subacute. Midrib distinct, secondary veins delicate. Round sori detached, densely inserted in single rows on both sides of the midrib, 5–6 sporangia each sorus.
