Organization of the Genus Selaginella

The genus Selaginella Palisot de Beauvois, 1804, has long represented a thorny taxonomic problem for botanists. These are moss-like yet vascular plants with relatively primitive morphology, although they are heterosporous, which is a relatively advanced feature. They are in the most basal of the three great extant groups of vascular plants, the Lycopodiopsida. This web page is part of my personal effort to better organize the group, and it relies entirely on the work of other botanists. See bibliography.

Currently-Proposed Organization

This outline is largely based on the Korall et al studies in 1999, 2002, and 2004. Analysis commentary by Alan Smith and John Mickel in various tropical American studies also has been quite valuable. Species followed by the notation (K) were featured in the Korall & Kenrick 2004 study. There are 715 to 730 species listed here. Obviously, only some 250 species here are categorized, with another 450 species or so waiting to be categorized. The greatest shortcomings are in tropical Asian species, where my resources are quite limited. I will soon be able to purchase the PROSEA work, which I hope may help to clarify that area. I am greatly indebted to the CaveRock website for the total list of species contained herein. Comments, criticisms and proposed amendments are very welcome. Direct them to:

.

Curiously, the most primitive species often seem to be cool-climate species. One possibility is that these were the best equipped to survive catastrophic geological events.

I. Subgenus Selaginella ss

Type species: S. selaginoides

Synonym:

This group comprises the very small clade long recognized as being rather unique and isolated that consists solely of two species, and confirmed by the work of Korall & Kenrick. There is essentially no question that these two species are both closely related, and at the same time, isolated as a group within Selaginella. The Korall & Kenrick work shows that this was the first group known to have diverged, perhaps as long as some 280 million years ago.

II. Subgenus Gymnogynum

Type species: S. plumosa

Synonyms:

A. Section Gymnogynum

Type species: S. plumosa

Synonyms:

This group was curiously not recognized in earlier works, but has been recognized as a natural grouping over the past half-century or so. The Korall & Kenrick work has certified that it is, in fact, a natural clade, and it is one of the ones that has the strongest and most distinctive morphological support. This list includes several species not specifically articulate, but which are thought to belong in this clade (with genetic support for S. myosurus). Derived features within this clade include stem articulations (swollen nodes with apparent joint lines), distely, one basal megasporangium per strobilus, highly-ridged megaspores, and spiny microspores. This list is fairly close to being complete. Most members are neotropical, with only a few Old World species.

The genus name Gymnogynum has priority for this group; P.-Beauv. did describe Didiclis first, but his first type for it was Selaginella ornithopodioides, not a member of this group, although P.-Beauv. did go on in following years to redescribe Didiclis based on S. plumeria, a member of this group. Gymnogynum, however, was based on G. dominguense, a synonym of S. plumeria, so this is the proper genus name.

B. Section Bryodesma

Type species: S. rupestris

Synonyms:

There are a number of Selaginella species with morphological adaptations to xerophytic environments. The Korall & Kenrick work demonstrates that all these species are not concladistic, but in fact are distributed between three separate clades. However, this is still the principal clade that includes the bulk of the xerophytic species. Sojak in 1992 created a new genus, Bryodesma, for the species complex centered around S. rupestris. The Korall & Kenrick studies found that S. lepidophylla is sister to the core clade; therefore, S. lepidophylla and closely-related species are here grouped with that clade. Several species once thought to be close to that species are in two particular other clades entirely, here listed as Xerobryum and Stachygynandrum. The following list is thought to be very nearly complete.

C. Section Ericetorum Jermy, Fern Gazette 13(2):117. 1986.

Type species: S. uliginosa

Synonym:

This section is based on Jermy's definition of subgenus Ericetorum, which features tetrastichous sporophylls. This proved to be a natural grouping, but only with the addition of at least several other species. Another clade, shown below, Boreoselaginella, may or may not be concladistic with this section. This list is thought to include most relevant species.

D. Section Boreoselaginella

Type species: S. sanguinolenta

Synonyms:

This section is highly uncertain in its placement, as tests have had rather ambiguous results. This placement here is very provisional. I am very uncertain as to whether S. adunca and S. delicatula belong in this grouping. This group does seem to have a discretely natural distribution, in a band from NE Asia to E Africa, including Australia. Warburg segregated this as a distinctive small subgenus. They might be termed the "twiggy" spikemosses; the species tend to have semi-ascending, branching stems, not lush and full like some of the tropical species, but sparser and firmer. At least one species has somewhat fleshy leaves.

Type species: S. flabellata

Synonym:

A. Section Diplostachyum

Type species: S. apoda

Synonyms:

This group at this time only includes a very few species very closely allied to S. apoda. The Korall & Kenrick studies found that S. apoda is in a rather isolated clade on its own, in a position more basal than derived. However, there are a number of tropical American species that may or may not be allied to these. More testing is needed.

B. Section Xerobryum

Type species: S. stauntonia

The section name here is just my provisional name. Some of these species have marked xerophytic adaptations. There is a small possibility that this clade could be allied to the Boreoselaginella clade, above. There may be a number of other species that belong here. This group seemingly has a near-global distribution. There are difficult distinctions between this group and the Bryodesma group.

Type species: S. denticulata

This is a very well-supported and discrete clade. However, it is not known how many more species it may include. It is apparently exclusively an Old-World clade. The species herein are generally well-known.

Type species: S. flabellata

Synonyms:

This is by far the most unnatural grouping within this page. It is believed to be monophyletic within the scope of the species listed, but it needs to include many more species and it needs to be divided further, and the cladal support was weak in the Korall & Kenrick studies. For now, it is sort of the catch-all grouping at the terminus of the cladal cascade, and probably comprises several hundred species. In the past, this group has been a catch-all for an immense variety of species, many of which are now known to be well-separated evolutionarily from this remaining group. For the time being, this group should be regarded as including the bulk of the remaining Incertae Sedis species following it. The following list is heavy in American species only because information on those is most readily available to me.
