    Hmmm, there is a mix up somewhere, Jim has this as T.biocellatum in his book, will follow up on that.
    Btw, T.obtusum is a widespread species over Asia.

    Ron, the valid name is Taeniophyllum pusillum. My plant is from China and so far I know, this species is not reported for Philippines.

    I see the root in the 'closeup' photo. I knew they were small, but wow. Those guys are tiny. Really exceptional photography. Thanks for sharing them with all of us.
