Members of this family were recognized in the Peruvian flora in the Tribe Physematieae of the Dryopteridaceae (Tryon & Stolze, 1991). The Woodsiaceae includes five genera and more than 40 species (Tryon & Stolze, 1991; Smith et al., 2005). Two species in one genus are recognized as endemics; they occupy the region of the Humid Premontane Forest, between 600 and 1600 m elevation. No endemic species is found in a protected area.
