Taxonomy

The genus Aglaomorpha is used here in the wide sense proposed by Roos (1985). Other authors often segregate a number of small or monotypic genera, often based on the presence of a single character, many of which can hardly fail to be striking, considering the large size of most plants. Thus, a coenosorus has been used as a generic character for Merinthosorus and, in contrast, small sori as a character for Drynariopsis. A peculiar disposition of the fronds on the rhizome has served as character for Thayeria, absence of the peculiar frond base as character for Holostachyum. It is obvious, and admitted by most authors, that all these genera are closely related to Aglaomorpha. Accordingly, they are not distinguished here.

Aglaomorpha is the sister genus of Drynaria.
