Abstract: We examined collections of pteridophytes from Moorea and others of
the Society Islands, as well as literature relevant to the pteridophytes of Polynesia.
This resulted in a list of species known to occur on Moorea, along with a
list of species reported for Moorea but lacking voucher specimens, and a list of
species perhaps to be found on Moorea based on collections from nearby Tahiti
and adjacent islands in the archipelago, at suitable elevations. We include habitat,
locality, and appropriate taxonomic commentary for each known species. A
new species in the family Psilotaceae, Tmesipteris gracilis Chinnock, is described
from the Society and Marquesas Islands. We also include a discussion of pteridophyte
collection history on Moorea and biogeographic notes for species on
the island.
