Diplazium longicarpum Kodama

Long-wrist Diplazium Fern (Diplazium longicarpum)

This epiphytic species was described in 1916; it is apparently restricted to the island of Hahajima in the Ogasawara archipelago, Japan.

The fern disappeared during the 1980s due to overcollecting for ornamental uses. [1]
