Microzonia floridana (E.C.Henry) Camacho & Fredericq
Florida (from 73 m); transverse section through fertile blade of a field sporophyte; the zoospores have settled on the walls of the unilocular sporangia and developed into 2-celled gametophytes (plastic embedment, toluidine blue staining). Eric Henry. © Eric Henry (eric@reedmariculture.com).

Microzonia floridana (E.C.Henry) Camacho & Fredericq
Florida; cultured fertile sporophyte with both the normal blade morphology and filamentous development; in the filamentous portions it can be seen that virtually every vegetative cell of the plant bears a sporangium. Eric Henry. © Eric Henry (eric@reedmariculture.com).
