Taxonomic remark From Vera & Passalia, 2012: A nomenclatural problem began when the original species of Gleichenites Goeppert (G. linkii Goeppert, G. neesii Goeppert, G. artemisiaefolius Goeppert, G. crithmifolius Goeppert and G. neuropteroides Goeppert), Paleozoic forms which were the syntypes of the genus, were removed from it and transferred in other previously recognized pteridosperm genera (e.g., Neuropteris, Sphenopteris, and Eremopteris), precluding the use of this genus name for true ferns (e.g., Unger, 1845; Schimper, 1869). Nevertheless, the genus continued to be used. At the same time, amendments of Gleichenites and the formulation of alternative morphogenera (e.g., Microphyllopteris Arber) were proposed as a mean of solving this nomenclatural problem. ... a new morphogenus [i.e., Korallipteris] is proposed to include fossil fern foliage with Gleichenia-like physiognomy but whose family-level affinity, is impossible to establish. [details]

Taxonomic remark From Vera & Passalia, 2012: A nomenclatural problem began when the original species of Gleichenites Goeppert (G. linkii Goeppert, G. neesii Goeppert, G. artemisiaefolius Goeppert, G. crithmifolius Goeppert and G. neuropteroides Goeppert), Paleozoic forms which were the syntypes of the genus, were removed from it and transferred in other previously recognized pteridosperm genera (e.g., Neuropteris, Sphenopteris, and Eremopteris), precluding the use of this genus name for true ferns (e.g., Unger, 1845; Schimper, 1869).
