Pteridophytes are a paraphyletic group including all vascular plants except seed plants ie ferns, horsetails and clubmosses. They are often referred to as "ferns and fern allies", even though clubmosses are actually less closely related to ferns than seed plants are. Flowering plants and Conifers were traditionally considered more advanced than the Pteridophyta.
