(After Boodle.) the facts indicate that its middle position is due to amplification of the stele leading up towards the solenostelic state, though the opinion is also a tenable one that the genus illustrates phases of reduction. Embryology. This is described as being similar to that common for most Ferns in the case of Schizaea pusilla} It may be noted, however, that the fila- mentous prothallus in this species shows very close analogies with that of the Hymenophyllaceae. In discussing the probable phyletic relations of the living Schizaeaceae, Prantl 2 remarks that it is impossible to derive any one genus from any other : they have obviously similar soral and sporangial characters, but they differ so greatly one from another in other respects that we can only regard them as derived from some simpler type, which may be held as a common 1 Britton and Taylor, I.e., p. 2. 2L.c, p. 148..
