Esto pone de manifiesto la existencia de una flora mesojurasica uniforme en casi todo el mundo, caracterizada por la presencia de cicadofitas bennetittales de los generos Zamites, Otozamites y Ptilophyllum, asi como filicales, latitudinalmente ubicadas entre los 45[grados] y 70[grados] N (Vakhrameev, 1956; Vakhrameev y Lebedev, 1985).
The possible affinities of these genera point towards the presence of the members of Filicales (mainly Dicksoniaceae) and Osmundaceae [20, 24, 28].
Alnus, Betula, Picea, Filicales, and Sphagnum register small values (<8%).
A third order of homosporous ferns, the Filicales, is the most species rich of non-angiospermous vascular plant groups (Rothwell, 1996b) and is widely regarded as leptosporangiate (Gifford & Foster, 1989).
A polytomy at the next node consists of Osmunda + Schizaea + the Permian species Skaaripteris minuta + a clade that consists of several Carboniferous fossil taxa + a clade that includes the heterosporous Hydropteridales + several living genera of Filicales.
Progressing distally from the root, Psilophyton crenulatum, the most basal clade, comprises the psilotophytes Psilotum + Tmesipteris, followed by the equisetophyte Equisetum, the seed plant Pinus, the ophioglossalean ferns Ophioglossum + Botrychium, the marattiaceous ferns Marattia + Angiopteris, and the "leptosporangiate" clade that consists of the Filicales + the Hydropteridales [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURE 4 OMITTED].
