Acystopteris (away from Cystopteris), a genus closely related to Cystopteris, is comprised of a few deciduous species that are not heavily in demand. Two are occasionally found in cultivation.

Acystopteris japonica (from Japan) is a thin-textured creeper with fronds of 1 to 2 ft. (30 to 60 cm). The stipes are dark and the bright green, triangular blades are tripinnate and not hairy. This fern will spread in loose, moist woodland soil in Zones 8 and 9.

Acystopteris tenuisecta (slender, cut to the base) at 1 to 2 ft. (30 to 60 cm) is similar to A. japonica in height as well as structure. The stipes, however, are a translucent green and the blades are pubescent on both surfaces. This fern grows in friable soil in Zones 6 to 8.
