Abstract

A largely tropical family of six mostly epiphytic genera that are restricted either to the New World or the Old World, except for Antrophyum and Vittaria, which are widely distributed in both regions. The spores are mostly trilete but are either tri- or monolete in Vittaria and Antrophyum. The sporoderm consists of a blechnoid type of exospore and a thin perispore of one or two layers, usually plain or papillate with globules or rodlets.
