ABSTRACT
An account is given of the spore germination and young gametophytes of two species of Blechnum L and one hybrid B australe subsp auriculatum (Cav.) de la Sota; B. laevigatum Cav. and B. australe subsp, auriculatum x B laevigatum. In these taxa some young gametophytes tend to branch; branches were formed on the first, second or even the fourth cell in the filament Some of the branches end in a laminar portion while others remain filamentous.
