Abstract

Pleopeltis orientalis and P. oreophila are described as new. Pleopeltis orientalis is restricted to the Cordillera Oriental of Colombia. It resembles the South American species Pleopeltis fraseri (Mett. ex Kuhn) A. R. Sm. and Pleopeltis remota (Desv.) A. R. Sm. Pleopeltis oreophila is found in interandean valleys of northern Peru. It resembles Pleopeltis pycnocarpa (C. Chr.) A. R. Sm. and Polypodium segregatum Hook.
