Chromosome numbers of four fems and a fern-ally native to Fiji and Vanuatu were examined. Chromosome numbers reported were n=52 in Psilotum complanatum (Psilotaceae), n=ca. 240 in Ophioglossum petiolatum (Ophioglossaceae), 2n=160 in Angiopteris evecta (Marattiaceae), 2n=78 in Marattia smithii (Marattiaceae) and 2n=60 in Lygodium reticulatum (Schizaeaceae). The chromosome numbers of Marattia smithii and Lygodium reticulatum is reported here for the first time, and those of the remaining three species were determined for the first time in Fijian and Vanuatuan plants. In Lygodium reticulatum, the karyomorphology of somatic chromosomes is described.
