Ophioglossaceae; Marattiaceae. 80 THE OPHIOGLOSSALES The trace for the second leaf, the first functional one, is usually provided with a single undivided bundle passing through the petiole, but sometimes this divides into two, as it does in the cotyledon of Botrychium virginianum. Where a single bundle occurs in the petiole it occupies a nearly median position and is concentric in structure, although the phloem is somewhat less developed upon the adaxial side. The xylem consists of a large mass of trachei

THE ADULT SPOROPHYTE 111 0. moluccanum and 0. pendulum, and the conclusion that the young sporangiophore is an outgrowth of the sterile part of the leaf is the result of the subsequent rapid growth of the upper sterile portion of the leaf, which thus carries its apex far beyond the apex of the young spike. The young sporophyll in (). pendulum (fig. 64, E) resembles that of 0. moluc- canum, except that all the parts are much larger. The apex of the young sporangio- phore appears upon the adaxial side of the very broadly conical young sporophyll.

In this sense the whole sporophyte body is a strobilus. Each leaf is distincdy differentiated into sporangium and foliage regions (fig- 317)- The foliage portion of the leaf resembles a narrow grass blade, and contains four longitudinal series of air chambers. At the base of this blade, on the adaxial side, the ligule appears, socketed in a small pitiike depression. Below the ligule the sporangium region occurs, the sporangium
