Nomenclatural notes
Description: "Specie distintissima e molto interessante pel seguente carattere. Gli esemplari raccolti nel porto di Zara e favoritimi dall'amico Sandri non oltrepassano in altezza un mezzo pollice circa; sono ramosissimi, e dalla base dei rami inferiori provengono dei fili sottilissimi radiciformi, i quali discendono strettamente addossati lunghesso il ramo principale la di cui base riesce quindi leggermente stopposa. Questi fili sono così fra loro stipati che simulano uno strato epidermico, ed accrescono rigidità alla fronda già per se stessa alquanto consistente." [Distinctive and very interesting species for the following character. The specimens collected in the port of Zara and favored by my friend Sandri do not exceed a half inches in height; they are very bright, and from the base of the inferior branches come very thin roots of root, which descend tightly along the main branch and the base of which is then slightly stalled. These wires are so crammed that they simulate an epidermal layer, and increase stiffness to the frond already for itself quite substantial.] - (15 Nov 2017) - M.D. Guiry
