This member of the
Polypodiaceae family was described by John Gilbert Baker in 1881. It is
found on Borneo, Java, Maluku, New Guinea, Philippines and Sumatera. It grows in the trees with some water and
some sun. The hollow rhizomes will grow up to 20 centimetres in
diameter, and the leaves will grow up to 30 centimetres.
The genera name after some
Lecan, but I fail to figure which one, or perhaps Greek lekane;
'bowl', and Latin pteris; 'fern'. The genera name
Lecanopteris was introduced by Caspar Georg Reinwardt published
in Flora 8, 1825. The species name after Charles Curtis, 1853-1928,
an English botanist.
