Abstract

A synopsis of species belonging to the genus Woodwardia Sm. (Blechnaceae) from Veracruz State, Mexico, is presented. Three species (including one hybrid species) are recognized as inhabiting Veracruz: the widespread W. spinulosa M. Martens & Galeotti, which grows in montane rain forests; the Mexican endemic W. martinezii Maxon ex Weath., growing in mesic woods; and W. ×semicordata Mickel & Beitel (W. martinezii × W. spinulosa), found in both deciduous and evergreen forests. An identification key to the three species is provided and the name W. spinulosa is lectotypified.
