Description of the Plant:
A very slender and graceful, climbing fern. Pinnae are much smaller than L. flexuoum, with the pinnules smaller and finely cut; the fertile ones often so contracted that there is little or no lamina present.
The plant is expectorant. A decoction of the vegetative parts and spores is diuretic and cathartic; used in haematuria and mennorrhagia (Yusuf et al. 2009).
Chittagong and Khulna division occasional.
