An intensive field survey was carried out from the hilly regions, plains of different climatic regimes and agricultural land of Gujarat state. About 23 species were collected from Gujarat state, from which eight species viz ., Actiniopteris radiata (Sw.) Link, Adiantum caudatum L., A. incisum Forssk., Lygodium flexuosum (L.) Sw., Pteris vittata L., Selaginella ciliaris (Retz.) Spring, S. delicatula (Desv. ex Poir.) Alston, and S. repanda (Desv. ex Poir.) Spring. were added as new distributional…

TLDR
It is suggested here that further time and understanding, combined with changes in methodology from both traditional taxonomists and moleculologists are required before all these changes should become widely accepted and that cladistic constrictions be removed from moleculology.
Prothalli of Ceratopteris thalictroides
