Matteuccia Todaro. Ostrich Fern.

A monotypic genus, north temperate in distribution. Two other species formerly included in Matteuccia (or sometimes in Onoclea) are either better treated in the genus Pentarhizidium Hayata (Gastony & Ungerer 1997; PPG I 2016; Koenemann, Maisonpierre, & Barrington 2011), or else the genera Pentarhizidium, Matteucia, and Onocleopsis should be united into Onoclea (Christenhusz, Zhang, & Schneider 2011). The members of the family store starch in their expanded and persistent petiole bases.
