- n. A genus of fossil ferns with bipinnate fronds, the pinnæ oblong and multijugate, and the pinnules subfalcate, obtuse at the summit and cordate at the base, with a reticulate nervation. It was called Dictyopteris by Gutbier in 1835, but that name was preoccupied. See Dictyopteris, with cut, and Dictyopteris, 2.
