  journal={Notulae Scientia Biologicae},
The genus Ophioglossum L. is revised for the Gujarat state and there were reported eight species viz. Ophioglossum costatum R. Br., O. gramineum Willd., O. gujaratense SM Patil, RN Kachhiyapatel, R Patel and KS Rajput, O. lusitanicum L., O. reticulatum L., O. parvifolium Grev. & Hook., O. nudicaule L. f. and O. thermale Kom., from different parts of the state. Amongst these, Ophioglossum thermale Kom. and O. lusitanicum L. were collected for the first time from Jambughoda Wildlife Sanctuary and…

The present investigation was carried out to document species diversity and to update the checklist of pteridophytes occurring in Gujarat state, with the maximum diversity observed in south Gujarat, followed by Central Gujarat and the Saurashtra region whereas less diversity was observed in the North and Kachchh regions.
Comparative phylogenetics of some species of Ophioglossum L. (Ophioglossaceae: Pteridophyta) in India with comments on evolutionary significance of high palaeoploidy and rare morphological traits
It appears that since almost all species possess intraspecific polyploidy, the intragenomic variability must be loaded with interspecific hybridization contents including chromosomal aberrations, which may be one of the reasons that homologous chromosomes rarely form trivalents and multivalents during early meiotic stages, despite the fact that palaeoautoploidy must have resulted in copying homologueous chromosomes.

It is concluded that this population of plants with pink to brown leaves in Mainal Chittorgarh, Rajasthan, India is recognizable as a new species of O. polyphyllum.
Ophioglossum gujaratense, a new species from Gujarat State, India
A new species, Ophioglossum gujaratense, is described from Gujarat state (India), which resembles O. polyphyllum in the presence of sheathing rhizomorph and 1–4 (rarely 5) trophophylls, but the distinctness of the new taxon has been confirmed using molecular data from chloroplast genome markers.
