A preliminary molecular analysis based on trnL-F region is presented for 17 taxa of Davalliaceae in Peninsular Malaysia. Maximum parsimony and Bayesian analysis were conducted on the dataset in order to establish a robust phylogenetic relationship between taxa. The results of analysis indicate incongruence with morphological classification. All genera of Davalliaceae in the study area are paraphyletic except Araiostegia which is represented by only a single species. In addition it partially agrees with recent phylogeny base on rbcL data.
