Eupodium kaulfussii

Often lumped into Marattia, the neotropical genus Eupodium was recently “resurrected” by Murdock (2008). Morphologically, it can be easily recognized within Marattiaceae by its prominently stalked synangia and presence of awns on the adaxial side of the lamina, along the veins of pinnae.

    Really great pictures, Fernando. A really nice species, too. I wonder if the stalked synangia aid in dispersal?

      Thanks, Wes. That’s a very good hypothesis, and you are probably right. Very curious structures…

  2. I agree with you, guys. I’m going to use these photos in my lectures, Fernando – OK? (they are great!).
    Best regards,
