fimbriatum in blade dissection, leaf length, and presence of proliferous
buds on the axils of distal pinnae.
5 mm, lanceolate, atrocastaneous, clathrate, tips twisted and long attenuate, margins with irregular projections; roots thin and wiry, not proliferous
Material of the new taxon, Doryopteris majestosa, has been misinterpreted as Doryopteris nobilis as it has features similar to it, such as the lamina architecture and large fronds, but differs mainly in having proliferous
buds at the base of the lamina amongst other characters.
buds in the axils (or on stalks) of the pinnae and the usually greatly reduced single pair of proximal pinnae readily distinguish this species.
