1857 Excerpt: ...HuXAl.fi sp., .4ucl.; Dicksokls sp., Bory. Sori
indusiate globose, superficial or immersed; the receptacles
terminal (or rarely axillary in the forks of the venules.) Indusium
sub-orbicular, affixed by its posterior margin or base, rarely two
or three becoming confluent. Veins pinnato-furcate from a costa, or
more rarely repeatedly dichotomous; venules free. Fronds
membranaceo-herbaceous or sub-coriaceous, pinnate or more
frequently decompound; the divisions isomerous or dimidiate.
Ehizome creeping.--This group appears to us to be properly
separated from the Davallieat, on account of having its indusium
fixed only by its base, very much in the way of Oystopteris. Both
Leucostegia and Odontoloma appear to be entirely wanting hi good
distinguishing characters. Of Monachosorum we know nothing beyond
Kunze's figure and description; judging from which, however, it
appears to be founded on an aged specimen of Acrophorus, from which
the indusium had fallen away. (See No. 100, ante p. hex.)
