Abstract [en]

The lycophyte family Selaginellaceae, with its single genus Selaginella, has long been considered a problematic family with few distinguishable morphological characters when it comes to recognizing subgroups. Several morphology-based classifications have been proposed, but phylogenetic analyses based on DNA sequence data have later shown that these classifications poorly reflect the evolutionary history of the group.

Are there undiscovered morphological patterns in Selaginella? We have increased the sampling from previous molecular work to include data from both chloroplast and nuclear markers for more than one third of the 700 Selaginella species found worldwide. We here present a robust large-scale phylogeny that, together with a thorough review of the group's morphology, serves as a reference for a new subgeneric classification of Selaginella
