  335Taiwan J For Sci23(4):335-9,2008 Research note Chromosome Numbers of Five Species of the Marattiaceae in Taiwan Tsung-Hsin Hsieh, 1)  Yi-Han Chang, 2)  Wen-Liang Chiou, 2)  Yao-Moan Huang 2,3) 【 Summary 】 The chromosome numbers of root tips of all 5 species of the Marattiaceae in Taiwan were determined. Results showed that  Angiopteris lygodiifolia  (2 n  = 80),  Angiopteris palmiformis  (2 n  = 80), and  Marattia pellucida  (2 n  = 78) are diploid;  Archangiopteris itoi is triploid (2 n  = 120), and  Archangiopteris somai  is tetraploid (2 n  = 160). These chromosome numbers together with previ-ous evidence support the hypothesis that  Archangiopteris   itoi  is a hybrid between  Angiopteris ly- godiifolia and  Archangiopteris somai .

C. Chr.,  Archangiopteris itoi  Shieh,  Archangiopteris somai  Hayata, and  Marat-tia pellucida  Presl (DeVol and Shieh 1994). In Taiwan,  Angiopteris   lygodiifolia is a very common fern.  Angiopteris palmiformis is common on Lanyu (Orchid Island).  Marattia  pellucida  is also only distributed on Lanyu  but is rare.  Archangiopteris itoi  and  Arch-angiopteris somai are endemic species and sympatrically distributed in Wulai, northern Taiwan (DeVol 1975, DeVol and Shieh 1994).Two basic chromosome numbers of Marattiaceae (x = 40, 39) have been docu-mented. The basic chromosome number is 39 for  Marattia  and 40 for other genera (Braith-waite 1977, Walker 1985, Manickam and Irudayaraj 1988, Nakato 1988, Singh and Roy 1988, Weng and Qiu 1988, Li 1989, Camus 1990, Takamiya 1995). Of these,  Angiopteris lygodiifolia  was previously reported to be n  = 40 (Tsai and Shieh 1983), and  Archangiop-teris somai was reported to be 2 n  = 4x = 160 in Taiwan (Chou et al. 2007). Chromosome numbers of the root tips of all 5 species of the Marattiaceae in Taiwan were determined herein. Sixteen plants of 5 species were collect-ed from Taiwan and a nearby island, Lanyu. Those plants were transplanted to the Taipei Botanical Garden (Table 1). After about 1 month of cultivation, the root tips were pre-treated for 3~4 h with a mixture of 70 ppm cycloheximide and 250 ppm 8-hydroxy-quinoline (1:1) at about 18~20 ℃ . The root tips were xed for 1~3 h in a mixture of 45 %  acetic acid and absolute ethanol (1:3) at about 20 ℃ , and then preserved in 70 %  ethanol at 4 ℃ . Then they were macerated for 1~3 min in 1 N HCl at 60 ℃ , washed for 10 s and di-gested for 1~2 h in 4 %  pectinase. Finally, the root tips were squashed in modied Sharma’s solution (Sharma 1982). The chromosome number of root tip cells was observed with a light microscope (Leitz, Dialux 20) and  photographed with a digital camera (Nikon, Coolpix 995). The basic chromosome number of more than 22 species of  Angiopteris  has been documented to be 40 (Lin et al. 1996). Table 2 and Figures 1~5 show that  Angiopteris ly- godiifolia and  Angiopteris palmiformis  are diploid (2 n  = 2x = 80).  Archangiopteris   itoi is triploid (2 n  = 3x = 120), assuming that the  basic number is 40.  Archangiopteris somai  is tetraploid (2 n = 4x = 160), as previous Table 1.

(2007)  Marattia pellucida 78 2x  338Hsieh et al. ― Chromosome numbers of Marattiaceae determination (Chou et al. 2007).  Marattia  pellucida  is diploid (2 n  = 2x = 78), based on the basic chromosome number of 39, as pre-viously documented in  Marattia fraxinea  and  Marattia smithii  (Manickam and Irudayaraj 1988, Takamiya 1995).The morphology of  Archangiopteris itoi is intermediate between  Angiopteris ly- godiifolia and  Archangiopteris somai. These 3 species are sympatrically distributed in Wulai . Archangiopteris itoi  shares common  patterns of RAPD markers with  Angiopteris lygodiifolia and  Archangiopteris somai  and was hypothesized to be a hybrid of the lat-ter 2 species (Wu 2002). The chromosome numbers shown in this study also support this hypothesis. The family Marattiaceae has previously  been considered to have 6 genera,  Archangi-opteris ,  Angiopteris ,  Christensenia ,  Danaea ,  Marattia , and  Macroglossum  (Holttum 1954, Pichi Sermolli 1977). However, the Marattia-ceae was recently treated as having 4 genera:  Danaea , Christensenia ,  Marattia , and  Angi-opteris  (Camus 1990, Smith et al. 2006, Mur-dock 2008). The genera  Archangiopteris and  Macroglossum  were nested within the  Angi-opteris clade based on molecular phylogeny.  Angiopteris  is monophyletic only   if  Archangi-opteris  and  Macroglossum  are included (Mur-dock 2008). The same basic chromosome numbers of  Angiopteris and  Archangiopteris , and the possibility of hybridization between species of these 2 genera indicate no signi -cant boundary between these 2 genera.
