As a new term in plant systematics, the Monilophytes have been widely used in English-written papers and Western botanical textbooks. This term is simplified from the name of the monophyletic group Moniliformopses, which were established by Kenrick and Crane and derived from the detailed studies on permineralized stems of Devonian fossil plants. The Monilophytes actually represent ferns in a broad sense (i.e., ferns sensu lato), including whisk ferns, ophioglossoid ferns, sphenophytes, marattioid ferns and leptosporangiate ferns. Thus, its Chinese name should be translated into “广义真蕨类”.
