Doodia caudata
Scientific classification

R. Br. 1810

Doodia is a genus of ferns in the Blechnaceae family,[1] in the eupolypods II clade of the order Polypodiales,[2] in the class Polypodiopsida.[3] It is named after Samuel Doody (1656-1706), an English botanist.[4] Distribution of the genus includes parts of Australia and New Zealand.[5]

Phylogenic studies have found Doodia to be embedded within the paraphyletic genus Blechnum.[2] Christenhusz et al., 2011, therefore reassigned the Doodia species to Blechnum.[6][7]
