The “fertile” leaves are arranged in cones, and bear spore-cases (sporangia) in their axils, containing spores of one kind only.
In the case of Trichomanes the axis on which the sporangia are inserted often projects beyond the cup in which they are contained.
The pairs of sori are covered with pairs of indusia which, on the maturity of the sporangia, open out opposite to each other.
