a) Species: Isoetes flaccida (If), Huperzia lucidula (Hl), Ophioglossum californicum (Oc), Psilotum nudum (Pn), Equisetum hyemale (Eh), Equisetum arvense (Ea), Angiopteris evecta (Ae), Alsophila spinulosa (As), Adiantum capillus-veneris (Ac) and Pteridium aquilinum (Pa).

b) CAA anticodon of trnL-UAA in Adiantum capillus-veneris (Ac) is subjected to partial C-to-U RNA editing [35] and is potentially edited in Alsophila spinulosa (As).

c) anticodon of trnR-CCG in Isoetes flaccida (If) is assumed to be subjected to U-to-C RNA editing [18].

d) Mutations in anticodon of trnR-CCG created a UCG anticodon in Alsophila spinulosa (As) and Pteridium aquilinum (Pa) and a UCA anticodon in Adiantum capillus-veneris (Ac).

e) rps12i114 intron is trans-spliced (t).

f) ycf1 in Angiopteris evecta (Ae) may retain functionality as a split gene with two protein products [18].
