Hymenophyllum polyanthos is a subcosmopolitan species of filmy-ferns. The group has been described as a complex of species and recent studies have pointed to genetic, morphological and ecological differences that can be used for a taxonomic revision of the group (Vasques et al. 2019). The specimen shown here was collected in Wakayama prefecture, and represents the fujisanense lineage, yet to be described as a new species in Japan.
