Scientific classification
Kingdom: Plantae
Class: Equisetopsida
Subclass: Marattiidae
Klinge 1882
Order: Marattiales
Family: Marattiaceae

Marattiidae is a subclass of Equisetopsida in the sense used by Mark W. Chase and James L. Reveal in their 2009 article "A phylogenetic classification of the land plants to accompany APG III."[1] This subclass comprises a single fern order, Marattiales, and family, Marattiaceae. It is equivalent to the class Marattiopsida in previous treatments, including Smith et al., 2006.[2]


The following diagram shows a likely phylogenic relationship between subclass Marattiidae and the other Equisetopsida subclasses.[3]
