GENUS INDEX

GENUS CODE: ASPLE
GENUS SCIENTIFIC: Asplenium
GENUS AUTHORITY: L.
GENUS COMMON: Spleenwort
GENUS SUMMARY: Asplenium is a large, nearly cosmopolitan genus of more than 720 species, with centers of diversity in the Appalachians, Central America mountains, Andes, and Himalayas.
GENUS IDENTIFICATION: Identification notes: Several of the more frequently encountered sterile hybrids are included in the key and treated fully below. Others may be recognized by intermediate morphology and usual co-occurrence with both parents.

FAMILY INDEX

FAMILY CODE: ASPLEN
FAMILY SCIENTIFIC: Aspleniaceae
FAMILY AUTHORITY: Frank 1877
FAMILY COMMON: Spleenwort Family
FAMILY SUMMARY: A family of a 2 genera and more than 720 species, of nearly cosmopolitan distribution. Murakami et al. (1999) conducted a molecular phylogenetic analysis of the Aspleniaceae, which confirmed that Camptosorus should be included in Asplenium, but suggested that Phyllitis is better separated from Asplenium. A later and more comprehensive study shows Phyllitis and Camptosorus to be deeply embedded in Asplenium (Schneider et al. 2004a), a conclusion followed here.
