Genus Summary: A genus of about 20 species, of s. North America, Central America, South America, and the West Indies. Traditionally treated as a component of Notholaena (or sometimes Pellaea) (Tryon, Tryon, & Kramer in Kramer & Green 1990), but best recognized as a separate genus (Windham in FNA 1993b, Windham 1987, Gastony & Rollo 1998). Molecular studies show that this group is more closely related to Pellaea and Astrolepis than to Notholaena.
Genus References: Windham in FNA (1993b); Sigel et al. (2011); Windham (1987); Tryon, Tryon, & Kramer in Kramer & Green (1990); Gastony & Rollo (1998).
