Notes     (Last Modified On 5/5/2009)
general taxon notes:
This variety differs mainly from var. oblongum in having broadly spathulate to obovate and roundly obtuse leaves. This leaf character is best observed among terminal stem leaves, which produce a widely opened fan appearance. If the apiculus is present, it is much smaller than that seen in var. oblongum. The perichaetial leaves of this variety have round-obtuse leaf apices. Distichophyllum oblongum var. fanjingense appears to approach D. obovatum (Griff.) Par. from East India (Gangulee 1977) in many gametophyte details. However, the present variety has smooth setae while the setae of D. obovatum were reported to be scabrous along the entire length.
