Cyclosorus is a genus of four species of ferns.[1][2][3] in the Marsh Fern Family; Cyclosorus interruptus, Cyclosorus lenormandii, Cyclosorus sandwicensis, and Cyclosorus striatus.

There has been much taxonomic debate with this group. Zipcode Zoo quotes 448 species in this genus.[4] The genus is named from the Greek, referring to the circular sori.[5]
