The Subfamily Polypodioideae is a member of the Family Polypodiaceae. Here is the complete "parentage" of Polypodioideae:
- Domain: Eukaryota
Whittaker & Margulis,1978 - eukaryotes
- Kingdom: Plantae
Haeckel, 1866 - Plants
- Subkingdom: Viridaeplantae
Cavalier-Smith, 1981 - Green Plants
- Phylum: Tracheophyta Sinnott, 1935 ex Cavalier-Smith, 1998 - Vascular Plants
- Subkingdom: Viridaeplantae Cavalier-Smith, 1981 - Green Plants
- Kingdom: Plantae Haeckel, 1866 - Plants
The Subfamily Polypodioideae is further organized into finer groupings including:
- Tribe (6): Drynarieae · Lepisoreae · Loxogrammeae · Microsoreae · Polypodieae · Selligueeae
- Genus (28): Aglaomorpha · Arthromeris · Belvisia · Campyloneurum · Christopteris · Dicranoglossum · Dictymia · Drymotaenium · Drynaria · Goniophlebium · Lecanopteris · Lemmaphyllum · Lepidogrammitis · Lepisorus · Leptochilus · Loxogramme · Microgramma · Microsorum · Neurodium · Niphidium · Pecluma · Pleopeltis · Polypodiodes · Polypodium · Selliguea · Serpocaulon · Synammia · Thylacopteris
- Species: ZipcodeZoo has pages for 3,475 species, subspecies, varieties, forms, and cultivars in the Subfamily Polypodioideae.
Aglaomorpha is the generic name of two groups of organisms. It can refer to: [more]
Campyloneurum is a genus of fern in family Polypodiaceae. It contains the following species (but this list may be incomplete): [more]
Leptochilus is a genus in the family Polypodiaceae. [more]
Plants epiphytic or on rock. Stems long-creeping, branched, 0.5--1.5 mm diam., not whitish pruinose; scales bicolored, rhombic, glabrous, margins entire or toothed. Leaves monomorphic or dimorphic, well separated, not narrowed toward tip, to 17 cm; fertile leaves often narrower and longer than sterile leaves. Petiole articulate to stem, straw-colored to greenish, somewhat flattened. Blade simple, linear-elliptic to linear oblanceolate, glabrous, or sparsely scaly on midrib, margins entire to crenate. Veins obscure, forming a row of costal areoles and often additional areoles toward blade margins, areoles often with 1--several free included veinlets. Sori in 1 row between midrib and margin on included veinlets, discrete, round [elongate]; indument of threadlike scales or absent. Spores tuberculate to rugose. x = 37. [more]
Microsorum is a genus of over fifty species of tropical ferns. Like most ferns, they grow from rhizomes, rather than roots. The genus name is often mis-spelled "Microsorium" or "Microsoreum". It includes some species that are lithophytic rheophytes. [more]
Plants epiphytic. Stems short-creeping, branched, 2--4 mm diam., not whitish pruinose; scales bicolored, lanceolate, somewhat clathrate, margins dentate. Leaves essentially monomorphic, tufted, narrowed toward apex, to 45 cm. Petiole articulate to stem, greenish, round in cross section, grooved at base. Blade linear to lanceolate-elliptic, simple, not glaucous, glabrous, margins entire. Veins obscure, in irregular areoles that are generally longer than wide and parallel to costa, included veinlets 1--2, simple or forked, free. Sori in nearly continuous, nearly marginal band (coenosorus) in distal 1/2 of blade, sometimes also with 1--3 separate oblong to circular sori proximally; indument filamentous. Spores minutely tuberculate. x = 37. [more]
Pecluma is a genus of fern in family Polypodiaceae. It contains the following species (but this list may be incomplete): [more]
Pleopeltis is a genus of between 20?50 species of ferns, widely distributed in tropical regions of the world, and also north into temperate regions in eastern North America and eastern Asia. [more]
Polypodium is a genus of 75?100 species of true ferns, widely distributed throughout the world, with the highest species diversity in the tropics. The name is derived from Ancient Greek poly (p???) "many" + podion (p?d???) "little foot", on account of the foot-like appearance of the rhizome and its branches. They are commonly called polypody or rockcap fern, but for many species unique vernacular names exist. [more]
