Aglaomorpha Schott (Polypodiaceae) is a genus of large-sized ferns of tropical Asia, comprising about 13-14 species (Janssen and Schneider, 2005; Roos, 1986).
The goal of this study was to explore the reproductive biology of the endangered Aglaomorpha cornucopia and to evaluate the efficacy of cold storage as a method for prolonging spore longevity.
Ferns cultivated in California: Woodwardia, Aglaomorpha, Pityrogramma.
Over the many years of subsequent research additional examples of ferns with foliar nectaries have been added to the list: Platycerium (Dummer, 1911); the Aglaomorpha and Drynaria group (Luttge, 1971; Zamora and Vargas, 1974; Potes, 2010); Polybotrya and Pleopeltis (as Polypodium) (Koptur, 1982; Koptur et al.
Most recently the anatomy of nectaries of Aglaomorpha and Drynaria was described (Potes, 2010).
Drynarioid ferns are a monophyletic grouping of 30 species now classified in two genera, Aglaomorpha and Drynaria (Roos, 1985; Janssen and Schneider, 2005) in the Polypodiaceae.
Based on combined molecular and morphological evidence, a recent study concludes that the genus Drynaria is paraphyletic and that Aglaomorpha is a monophyletic group derived from within it (Fig.
