Pteridophytic Spores

Spores of a pteridophyte were microscopically observed.

The pteridophyte (P1) was collected from Assam. I don’t know the scientific name. Do help me in the identification process.

The slides were prepared by Rishika Pawar. Spores were focused by Hiwarale Sir and photos were captured by Ajinkya Sir.
