Deparia (or the false spleenworts) is a genus of ferns. The Pteridophyte Phylogeny Group classification of 2016 (PPG I) places the genus in the family Athyriaceae,[2] although other sources include it within an expanded Aspleniaceae[1] or Woodsiaceae.[3]


As of November 2019, the Checklist of Ferns and Lycophytes of the World accepted the following species (with a note that there are "probably still too many described species in China").[3]

Some hybrids are also known:[3]
