Description

Common understorey fern in dense kauri (Agathis australis) dominated forest. Plants admixed with Kauri grass (Gahnia xanthocarpa). Growing in seemingly rhizomatous colonial trunked or untrunked patches. Trunked examples often admixed with non trunked (non trunked NOT fertile) but also 'solitary'. Example of trunkled specimen imaged here was deliberately taken to show the trunk (so it was isolated from the more usual situation).
