The specimens of Schizaea dichotoma (L.) Smith were collected from Neelum Valley to investigate its morphology, anatomy and spore morphology. The rachis was observed as triangular and dichotomized stele was protostele and “Y” shaped. The sporangium was stalked and annulus consisted of 16-19 cells containing 256 spores. The spores were convex-plane with exine of 0.5 μm. All these characters suggested that Schizaea dichotoma is more primitive than the Lygodium japonicum.
