§ 2. CAPRARIA Presl.
This group was set apart by Presl as a section in 1851.* It
agrees with Eustenochlaena in venation and in the marginal spines
of the pinnae, but differs in the bipinnate sporophyl, a character
wholly insufficient to separate it as a genus. Fée founded the
genus Lomariobotrys on the same group in 1852.
