Comprehensive Description

Description

Terrestrial or epilithic ferns. Rhizome subterranean, short-creeping, branched, with closely-spaced dimorphic fronds. Sterile frond lamina simple, narrowly linear, with a simple, central midrib, glabrous or spacely set with hairs. Fertile frond very narrowly linear with a crowded group of fertile pinnae at the apex, margin divided into a fringe of slender lobes, abaxially densely set with hairs. Sporangia in 2 rows, one on either side of each fertile pinna.

Schizaeaceae

Schizaeaceae is a family of 35 to 40 species of small ferns, chiefly tropical. Genera historically treated as belonging to this family include Anemia, Lygodium, and Mohria. However, striking differences in morphology and chromosome numbers, as well as known fossil history, indicate that these are best segregated into different families.

As in Osmunda, the sporangia are borne on specialised pinnae, distinct from ordinary vegetative pinnae.
