Abstract

For the forthcoming florula of the Río Cenepa area in the Department of Amazonas, Peru, the following seven new species of ferns (Pteridophyta) are described: Asplenium eutecnum (Aspleniaceae); Cyathea thelypteroides and C. windischiana (Cyatheaceae); Megalastrum mollis (Dryopteridaceae); Tectaria atropurpurea and T. microsora (Dryopteridaceae); and Thelypteris berlinii (Thelypteridaceae). A new combination is made for Cyathea reginae (Cyatheaceae), which also occurs in this same area; this was previously recognized as a variety of Cyathea macrosora and lacks a name at species rank.
