Abstract: The spores of six species of S.boninensis Baker,S.willdenowii (Desv.) Baker,S.xipholepis Baker,S.indica (Milde)R.M.Tryon,S.wallichii ( Grev.)Spring,S.arbuscula (Kaulf.)Spring from torrid and subtorrid zone were observed by  SEM.The results showed that the spore morphology of seleginellaceae is radiosymmetic and trilete with intricate surface ornamentation;the sporodem ornamentation is mainly composite and distinct.The results provide some basic materials for the study of the morphology and systematic evolution of Selaginellaceae.

Key words: Selaginellaceae, spore morphology, SEM
