Description

Adiantum stenochlamys which is one of the most common Adiantum species in Peninsular Malaysia, is a terrestrial fern. The epithet name stenochlamys means unclear and is derived from the Greek word, ‘steno’ means narrow and ‘chlamys’ means cloak. It has short creeping to erect rhizomes, golden brown to brown scales and uniform colour. The stipes are shiny, dark reddish brown to black and about 5-20 cm long. The fronds can grow up to 50 cm long and the laminae are more or less ovate in outline. The leaflets are thin, smooth, hairless and mostly broader than long. The sori are smooth, oblong in shape and present on all leaflets with a maximum of 9 sori per leaflet (Kiew et al., 2020).

Adiantum stenochlamys is categorised as Least Concern in The Malaysia Red List and can be found throughout Peninsular Malaysia (except Perlis), Sabah and Sarawak. This fern grows in rock crevices and prefers habitat such as lowland forest, hill dipterocarp forest, coastal forest, limestone and sandstone (Yong et al., 2021).
