Cheilanthoideae is one of the five subfamilies of the Pteridaceae family of ferns.[1] This subfamily contains about 235 genera and 4546 species.[2]

Phylogenic relationships[edit]

The following phylogram, shows a likely relationship between Cheilanthoideae and the other Pteridaceae subfamilies.[3]

Pteridaceae

Cryptogrammoideae





Ceratopteridoideae



Pteridoideae





Vittarioideae



Cheilanthoideae





Although Cheilanthoideae subfamily itself is thought to be monophyletic, at least half of its genera (including Cheilanthes, Doryopteris, Notholaena, and Pellaea) have been shown to be polyphyletic.[2]

Genera[edit]

The Cheilanthoideae subfamily contains the following genera:[1]
