Based on general morphology, spore measurements and ornamentation (scanning electron microscope), genome size estimation, and molecular systematics (trnL-trnF IGS), we show the extreme systematic complexity within the European representatives of the genus Ophioglossum.

Abstract

Based on general morphology, spore measurements and ornamentation (scanning electron microscope), genome size estimation, and molecular systematics (trnL-trnF IGS), we show the extreme systematic complexity within the European representatives of the genus Ophioglossum. In particular, three hybrids from Tuscany are described: the tetraploid O. × pierinii Peruzzi, Magrini, Marchetti & Viane, seen as the hybrid between diploid O. lusitanicum L. and hexaploid O. azoricum C.Presl; the tetraploid O. × giovanninii Peruzzi, Pierini, Magrini, Marchetti & Viane, seen as the homoploid hybrid between tetraploid O. vulgatum L. and tetraploid O. × pierinii Peruzzi, Magrini, Marchetti & Viane; the pentaploid O. × pseudoazoricum Peruzzi, Pierini, Magrini, Marchetti & Viane, seen as the hybrid between hexaploid O. azoricum C.Presl and tetraploid O. vulgatum L. All the three new taxa grow in different localities in the Monte Pisano mountain range.
