Abstract: Divergence time estimates suggest that most clades constituting the fern family Pteridaceae (Polypodiales) were in existence by the Early Cretaceous. However, fossil evidence to corroborate this remains exceedingly rare. Burmese amber is an important source of new information on the radiation of derived fern lineages during the Cretaceous Terrestrial Revolution. This study describes Heinrichsia cheilanthoides gen. et sp. nov., a fern with suggested affinities to Pteridaceae, based on fertile foliage portions p… Show more

“…five tonnes per year) is excavated from these deposits. Eight fossils of different families within the Polypodiales and many sporangia and spores have been found in Burmese amber (Poinar & Buckley, 2008;Schneider et al, 2016;Regalado et al, 2017aRegalado et al, , 2017bRegalado et al, , 2018Regalado et al, , 2019Li et al, 2018Li et al, , 2019 and several taxa await description. Four fern species were described from Dominican amber, so far (Gómez, 1982;Lóriga et al, 2014;Schneider et al, 2015;Sundue & Poinar, 2016).…”

“…Kachin amber, the older variety of the more widely known Burmese amber, originates from the Albian-Cenomanian (c. 100 million years old (Ma)) of Myanmar (for additional information on provenance and age, refer to Supporting Information Notes S1), and presently represents the most important source of three-dimensionally preserved younger Mesozoic terrestrial organisms (plants, animals and microorganisms). More than 1200 species have been formally described, half of those in the last 3 years (Ross, 2019), including some 20 taxa of free-sporing land plants such as liverworts, mosses and ferns (Heden€ as et al, 2014;Heinrichs et al, 2018;Regalado et al, 2019), which makes Burmese amber the most likely source for Cretaceous lycophyte fossils entombed in amber. Recent screening of several collections of Kachin amber has yielded 14 distinct morphologies of fertile Selaginella (Fig.…”

“…The third aspect is focused on the improved ability to study the evolution of genomes to answer major questions, such as the maintenance of species identity despite introgression and the role of processes shaping the genomic disparity in SFLP. The special issue contains the description of one extant liverwort, Lejeunea heinrichsii (Lee et al, ), and one extinct fern genus, Heinrichsia (Regalado et al, ), that are both new to science and named in memory of Jochen Heinrichs.…”

“…The first set consists of three contributions devoted to the study of the fossil record of SFLP during the Mesozoic and Cenozoic (Mamonto & Ignatov, ; Regalado et al, ; Sadowski et al, ). In recent years, major advances have been achieved in our understanding of the evolutionary history of these plants especially, but not exclusively, by studying amber inclusions.…”
