Author's notes

Growing on the not quite so gloomy upper edge of the rainforest. The photos aren't great for telling this, but I think they show the pinnules coming right to the rachis, making it lobatus, not flabellatus. The closer look at the pinnule margins in photo 4 I think shows them to be obscurely crenate rather than finely toothed to the base (though it is a bit subjective), which supports it being lobatus. Most plants were about a metre high, some might have gone to 1.2m.

Revisited this site and added the 5th photo, which does clearly show the pinnules occurring right to the base of the rachis where it joins the stem.
