Family Authority: Link 1833
Summary: A family of 6-10 (or many more) genera and about 600 species. This treatment follows the generic interpretation of Ebihara et al. (2006), which splits Trichomanes (as both polyphyletic and morphologically diverse) and retains a broad and monophyletic Hymenophyllum. See Moran (1998) for an interesting discussion and overview of independent fern gametophytes in e. North America.
