Re: Microsorum

The correct 'new' name is Microsorum thailandicum.  When the plant  came into 
cultivation a few years ago, it was thought to be Microsorum  steerei. There 
is an article in the Bangkok Post (August 26, 2002)  detailing the birth of 
this 'new' species.  (I'd give a link, but I am  having trouble accessing the 
information). Dr. Hans Nooteboom (National  Herbarium of the Netherlands) and 
Dr. Thaweesakdi Boonkerd (Chulalongkom  University-Thaniland) described the 
species in Blumea.  Bill, if you  are unable to access it through the Internet,  I 
can send you a copy of the  article.  I downloaded it years ago and it keep 
it nearby.
