A new species, Antrophyum nambanense , is described here based on the evidence from morphology and molecular phylogeny. Morphologically, short taeniform soral paraphyses and large fronds are the diagnostic characteristics of A. nambanense . Phylogenetically, it is most closely related to A. annamense , but can be readily distinguished from A. annamense by taeniform soral paraphyses (vs. filiform). We suggest A. nambanense is an allopolyploid of hybrid origin involving A. annamense and A. henryi ,...

Refugia during the last glacial period and the origin of the disjunct distribution of the insular plant Microtropis japonica (Celastraceae)

Aim: While many phylogeographical studies have focused on continental refugia, the function of islands as refugia has been long overlooked. In this study, we examined the biogeographic history of Microtropis japonica and its insular distribution to elucidate the hidden status of islands on the range expansion of plants. Location: Two disjunct island areas of Japan (the Izu and Ryukyu Islands) and their adjacent areas (the Japanese mainlands Honshu and Kyushu, and Taiwan). Taxon: Microtropis japonica...
