Notes     (Last Modified On 3/11/2009)
general taxon notes:
Plants of Calymperes fasciculatum with contorted leaves somewhat resemble those of C. levyanum var. hainanense, C. lonchophyllum, and C. serratum in the field but are easily distinguished under the microscope by their acuminate leaves with long excurrent costae. The obvious stems and appressed, secund leaves are good field characters for most specimens. This species is locally common in some places on Hainan Island. Calymperes fasciculatum has previously been reported from China under the name Calymperes johanniswinkleri Broth. var. hasegawae (Tak. & Iwats.) Iwats., a synonym.

Gemmae frequent, adaxially located on tip of costa. Sporophytes not seen.
