Zosterophyllum
Zosterophyllum was a genus of Silurian-Devonian vascular land plant with branching axes on which kidney-shaped sporangia were arranged in lateral positions.
Some species have been transferred to other genera:
- Z. artesianum to Danziella artesiana
- Z. contiguum to Demersatheca contigua
- Z. subverticillatum to Adoketophyton subverticillatum
A cladogram published in 2004 by Crane et al. places the species of Zosterophyllum in a paraphyletic stem group of broadly defined "zosterophylls", basal to the lycopsids (living and extinct clubmosses and relatives).

Plant Life: Zosterophyllophyta
The Zosterophyllophyta are a phylum of extinct seedless vascular plants that have been recovered from fossils in the stratum ranging from the Early to the Late Devonian, approximately 408 million to 370 million years ago. Today, scientists believe that zosterophyllophytes and lycopods arose at about the same time from a common but unknown ancestor.

I have added a number of extra groups, updated the angiosperms according to APG-III, and repositioned the Gnetales according the apparently ascendent gnetifer hypothesis.
