Polypodiaceae is the largest family with nine species followed by Gleicheniaceae, Adiantaceae and Thelypteridaceae each with four taxa. This study found that terrestrial pteridophyte is the largest group with 37 taxa (64.9%) followed by epiphyte with eight taxa (14%), rupicolous with 11 taxa (19.3%) and acuatic group with four species (7%).
