The development and structure of the gametophytes show some similar characteristics between the sister group Acrostichum and Ceratopteris: 1) Spore germination is of the Vittaria-type; 2) Prothallial developments is of the Ceratopteris-type; 3) Young prothalli are markedly lopsided; 4) Gametangia are the common leptosporangiate type.
