Abstract: The fern genus Coniogramme Fée is one of the ferns which are difficult in classification as there are many transitional types. C.robusta(H.Christ) H.Christ is a special kind among them. In this paper, the taxonomy of this species is revised based on examination of its herbaria specimens, fieldwork, and observation of spore morphology. C.pseudorobusta Ching et Shing and C.neorobusta Ching et Shing are reduced to C.robusta(H.Christ) H.Christ. Meanwhile, the type specimens of C.robusta var. splendens Ching et Shing and C.robusta var. rependula Ching et Shing are redefined.

Key words: Coniogramme Fé, e, C.robusta var. robusta, C.robusta var. splendens Ching et Shing, C.robusta var. rependula Ching et Shing, taxonomic revision
