Abstract: 1912) Loxsoma R. Br. ex A. Cunn. in Companion Bot. Mag. 2: 366. 1 Jul 1837 (‘Loxoma’), nom. & orth. cons. prop. Typus: Loxsoma cunninghamii R. Br. ex A. Cunn. A survey of literature revealed that the generic name Loxsoma R. Br. ex A. Cunn. and the family name Loxsomataceae C. Presl, both with that corrected spelling, have been in use for several decades. Past efforts had been made to conserve the above names to bring stability to their nomenclature, but this process was never completed. Contrary to the earlier consistent and wide use of the above orthographies, Tryon & Tryon (Ferns Allied Pl.: 125. 1982) and Kramer (in Kubitzki, Fam. Gen. Vasc. Pl. 1: 172–173. 1990) reverted to the original spellings Loxoma and Loxomataceae for the genus and family respectively, and their usage has been followed by some later workers, including Smith & al. (in Taxon 55: 705–731. 2006; in Ranker & Haufler, Biol. Evol. Ferns Lycophytes: 419–469. 2008).
