Abstract

A new species of Asplenium (Aspleniaceae), A. minutifolium Kanem. & Tagane, from Phu Kradueng National Park, Loei Province, Northeast Thailand and Khao Yai National Park, Nakhon Nayok Province, Central Thailand, is described and illustrated. This species can be distinguished from all similar species in East and South-East Asia by its simple and small lamina (1-5 × 0.3-0.7 cm), small and entire pinnae (1-4 × 0.8-2.5 mm), reflexed pinna arrangement (°90° from the midrib) in the lower 2/3 of the lamina and a sori arrangement that is almost always arranged in a single row on the basiscopic vein.
