The velocity of the developmental process, from germination to gametangia formation, which occurred in roughly one month, is quick but falls within the normal range of variation for the leptosporangiates (Raghavan 1989, Banks 1999, Li et al.
According to Schuettpelz and Pryer (2009), leptosporangiate ferns originated near the start of the Carboniferous period (359.
Many leptosporangiate groups are known to evolve via reticulate evolution and to form cryptic complexes, involving all of the cited processes as hybridization, polyploidy and apogamy.
