Danaea arbusculaMaarten Christenhusz
The recently described Danaea arbuscula Christenh. & Tuomisto, occurs in Andean cloud forests and in montane forests on Guadeloupe. It is recognized by the slender, elongate rhizome on which the fronds are widely placed apart. This rhizome can grow over 1 m tall, the tallest in the genus. The fronds are yellowish or greyish green, and leathery in texture. The pinnae are entire and the stipe is nodose.
