Selaginella belongs to the group of plants called lycopods. They are vascular plants, but are ancient in their characteristics. You can find several species of its relative Lycopodium in the forests of the United States.

This species is Selaginella flabellata which is a small club moss. It has dimorphic (two shaped) microphylls (small leaves) of two sizes on the shoots bearing the strobili (spore bearing cones).
