Family Drynariaceae, genus Selliguea;
world species list.

By Michael Hassler and Brian Swale.      

A list of the species of the genus Selliguea, giving current name, authority, synonyms, published references, geographic distribution and (sometimes) illustrations.
Please note: an asterisk * in the distribution list means that the species is exotic to the country named.

005.00 Class Filicopsida
		Trivial names: Ferns, varens, helechos, fougeres, farnkraut.
		Statistics: 15 orders, 53 families, 310 genera, 9300-10700 species 
		[11501 species and 454 hybrids listed.
050.000 Order Polypodiales
		Statistics: 9 families, 82 genera, 1996-2140 spp. 
		(2293 species and 31 hybrids listed]
		= Order Davalliales
054.0000 Family Drynariaceae Ching; Acta Phytotax. Sin. 16: 1-37 (1978)
		Statistics: 16 genera, 347-370 spp. 
		[444 species and 4 hybrids listed]
		Revision date: 20.07.2001
		Remarks: according to PCR results Polypodiaceae s. lat. is polyphyletic. 
		There are two choices: either include Grammitidaceae, Pleurosoriopsidaceae and 
		Loxogrammaceae in Polypodiaceae, or separate Drynariaceae as family. 
		It is not clear whether or not Drynariaceae is the correct family name.

054.0200 Tribus Selligueeae

054.0202 Selliguea Bory; Dict. Class. Hist. Nat. VI: 587 (1824) s. str. Statistics: 110-115 spp. Asia to Japan and New Guinea, 1 sp. South Africa, 1 Madagascar, mostly New Guinea [117 species listed]. Hovenkamp (1998) in Fl. Malesiana II/3 unites Crypsinus and Phymatopteris under Selliguea, and argues that they do not form natural groups within Selliguea. He gives new combinations for the Malesian and Pacific species only. Fraser-Jenkins (1997) keeps all three genera separate. Unification leads unfortunately to a multitude of new necessary combinations, especially for the old Phymatosorus, but the Chinese species are probably mostly invalid anyway. Revision date: 20.07.2001 = Crypsinopsis Pichi-Serm.; Webbia 31(1): 240 (1977) = Crypsinus Presl; Epim.
