Rhizome erect, covered with stupe bases; scales pale brown becoming dark brown, lanceolate. Stipes 20-35 cm long, stramineous, bisulacate, dark and scaly at base; lamina deltoid, 20-40 cm long by 18-30 cm wide, texture thin, bipinnate-tripinnate; pinnae petiolate, alternate, 9-18 cm long; basal pairs of pinnules petiolate; segments of pinnules on large fronds free and sessile, segments on smaller fronds cut about 1/2 way to costa; upper surface with spines along rachilla grooves and costae. Sori costal borne at the base of fork of a veinlet, 1-2 mm long; indusia usually straight, thin, brown, entire or slightly erose.
