051.0010 Ctenitopsis Ching ex Tardieu & Christensen; Notul. Syst. [Paris] 7: 86 (1938) Statistics: ca. 20 spp. mostly China, several Indochina, some widespread to Pacific and Australia [20 species listed]. Very doubtful genus, probably to be distributed in other genera (Tectaria, Ctenitis, Heterogonium etc.), but the Chinese authors keep it separate, and there are many species which do not have other combinations.
