Blechnum penna-marina (Poiret) Kuhn Acrostichum polytrichoides Thouars (text) ['A. polypodioides' below plate]; Lomaria antarctica Carmich.; L. alpina sensu Hemsley, non (R.Br.) Spreng. Native. First collected on Tristan da Cunha by Aubert Du Petit-Thouars in January 1793. Here it has now become abundant on the steeper slopes, where it often forms a dense pure community; it also occurs up to 650 m in scrub associated with Empetrum rubrum and Phylica arborea. Examples cytologically investigated by Manton & Vida (1968: 372-3) were shown to differ from New Zealand plants of the same species that had long been under cultivation in Leeds University greenhouses. The Tristan material gave 2n=66; that from New Zealand 2n=68. In addition, the morphological differences between the Tristan and South American plants in comparison with those from Australasia indicate separation at subspecific level (A. C. itrmy, pers. comm.)
