Polypodiaceae Family:

Polypodiaceae J.Presl & C.Presl

The plant family Polypodiaceae was named and described by Jan Svatopluk Presl and Carl Bořivoj Presl in Deliciae Pragenses, Historiam Naturalis Spectantes in 1822.

Plants of the World Online lists 65 accepted genera in this family of ferns (as of 2-7-21 when I last updated this page). Since the last update, several families have been dissolved and their genera moved to the Polypodiaceae. There have been new genera created which are not reflected in the above number. SO, the number of general will change as updates are made.
