Notes     (Last Modified On 5/5/2009)
general taxon notes:
The present species is closely related to Hypopterygium japonicum, but the two are different by the following features: 1) the costae of lateral leaves of H. fauriei reaching 2/3 the leaf length, while those of H. japonicum ending below the apex; 2) the margins of lateral branch leaves of H. fauriei serrate throughout, while those of H. japonicum have serration not over the middle of the leaf; 3) the median leaf cells of H. fauriei longer than 35 µm, while those of H. japonicum shorter than 30 µm.
